Title (EN) OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA TREATMENT DEVICES, SYSTEMS AND METHODS
(FR) DISPOSITIFS, SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE TRAITEMENT DE L'APNÉE OBSTRUCTIVE DU SOMMEIL
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Devices, systems and methods of neurostimulation for treating obstructive sleep apnea. The system is adapted to send an electrical signal from an implanted neurostimulator through a stimulation lead to a patient's nerve at an appropriate phase of the respiratory cycle based on input from a respiration sensing lead. External components are adapted for wireless communication with the neurostimulator. The neurostimulator is adapted to deliver therapeutic stimulation based on inputs.
(FR)L'invention concerne des dispositifs, des systèmes et des procédés de neurostimulation pour traiter l'apnée obstructive du sommeil. Le système est conçu pour envoyer un signal électrique, par une dérivation de stimulation, d'un neurostimulateur implanté à un nerf d'un patient à une phase appropriée du cycle respiratoire sur la base d'une entrée provenant d'une dérivation de détection de respiration. Des composants externes sont conçus pour communiquer de manière sans fil avec le neurostimulateur. Le neurostimulateur est conçu pour fournir une stimulation thérapeutique sur la base des entrées.
