Title (EN) ACCESSING SPINAL NETWORK TO ENABLE RESPIRATORY FUNCTION
(FR) ACCÈS À UN RÉSEAU VERTÉBRAL POUR PERMETTRE LA FONCTION RESPIRATOIRE
Abstract:
(EN) In various embodiments, methods are provided for improving, and/or regulating, and/or restoring respiration in a subject with a respiratory deficiency. In certain embodiments the methods involve neuromodulating the cervical spinal cord of a subject by administering transcutaneous stimulation to the cervical spinal cord or a region thereof at a frequency and intensity sufficient to regulate and/or to restore respiration; and/or neuromodulating the cervical spinal cord of a subject by administering epidural stimulation to the cervical spinal cord or a region thereof at a frequency and intensity sufficient to regulate and/or to restore respiration; and/or neuromodulating the cervical spinal cord of a subject with a magnetic stimulator at a frequency and intensity sufficient to regulate and/or to restore respiration.
(FR) Dans divers modes de réalisation, l'invention concerne des procédés pour améliorer et/ou réguler et/ou rétablir la respiration chez un sujet atteint de déficience respiratoire. Dans certains modes de réalisation, les procédés comprennent la neuromodulation de la moelle épinière cervicale d'un sujet par administration de stimulation transcutanée à la moelle épinière cervicale ou une région de cette dernière à une fréquence et une intensité suffisantes pour réguler et/ou rétablir la respiration ; et/ou la neuromodulation de la moelle épinière cervicale d'un sujet par administration de stimulation épidurale à la moelle épinière cervicale ou une région de cette dernière à une fréquence et une intensité suffisantes pour réguler et/ou rétablir la respiration ; et/ou la neuromodulation de la moelle épinière cervicale d'un sujet avec un stimulateur magnétique à une fréquence et une intensité suffisantes pour réguler et/ou rétablir la respiration.
