Title (EN) DISABLING AN IMPLANTED MEDICAL DEVICE WITH ANOTHER MEDICAL DEVICE
(FR) DÉSACTIVATION D'UN DISPOSITIF MÉDICAL IMPLANTÉ PAR UN AUTRE DISPOSITIF MÉDICAL
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Various techniques for disabling a first implantable medical device (IMD) by modulation of therapeutic electrical stimulation delivered by a second medical device are described. One example method includes delivering therapeutic electrical stimulation from a more recently implanted second IMD at a higher average rate than the previously implanted first IMD so that only the more recently implanted IMD will administer therapy, and modulating stimulation by the more recently implanted IMD in order to send a disable command to the previously implanted IMD.
(FR)Cette invention concerne diverses techniques pour désactiver un premier dispositif médical implantable (DMI) par modulation d'une stimulation électrique thérapeutique délivrée par un second dispositif médical implantable. Une méthode proposée en exemple comprend la délivrance d'une stimulation électrique thérapeutique par un second DMI implanté plus récemment à une fréquence moyenne supérieure à celle du premier DMI implanté de façon que seul le DMI implanté le plus récemment administre le traitement thérapeutique, et la modulation de la stimulation par le DMI le plus récemment implanté afin d'envoyer une commande de désactivation au DMI implanté précédemment.
