Physician Education Program (PEP)

The FDA has approved the Spiration Valve System under the Humanitarian Use Device label. Under this approval, a physician at each site must complete a thorough training course before the site is approved for commercial use. As an outgrowth of this, Spiration has developed PEP Live, a state-of-the-art physician training program designed to provide the physician with the knowledge and practical experience to treat air leak patients with the Spiration Valve System.

The Spiration PEP Live course provides a comprehensive overview of the Spiration Valve System procedure. Led by faculty physicians, the course provides foundational concepts that are then applied in a functioning air leak model. Progression through the course translates into a working knowledge of air leak treatment and advanced concepts for treating patients with the Spiration Valve.

Who Should Attend:
Thoracic surgeons and interventional  pulmonologists interested in providing their patients with the Spiration Valve System as a solution to treat air leaks.
