Implantable medical device for providing chronic condition therapy and acute condition therapy using vagus nerve stimulation

Disclosed herein are methods, systems, and apparatus for treating a medical condition in a patient using an implantable medical device (imd). The imd is capable of generating a first electrical signal for treating a medical condition, for example epilepsy. ... Cyberonics Inc

Obstructive sleep apnea treatment devices, systems and methods

A method including chronically implanting a nerve cuff electrode on a portion of a hypoglossal nerve, chronically implanting a respiration sensing lead subcutaneously in a thorax of a patient, the respiration sensing lead having a plurality of bio-impedance electrodes defining at least one bio-impedance vector. The method may also include sensing a bio-impedance signal corresponding to respiration via a bio-impedance vector on an anterior side of the thorax, analyzing the bio-impedance signal to identify onsets of expiration, predicting an onset of a future expiratory phase, and delivering a stimulus to the portion of the hypoglossal nerve via the nerve cuff electrode, wherein the stimulus is delivered as a function of the bio-impedance signal; wherein stimulus delivery is initiated before the onset of the future expiratory phase and continued during an entire inspiratory phase, and wherein the method is performed without identifying an onset of an inspiratory phase.. ... Cyberonics Inc

Vagus nerve and carotid baroreceptor stimulation system

Systems and methods are provided for delivering vagus nerve stimulation and carotid baroreceptor stimulation to patients for treating chronic heart failure and hypertension. The vagus nerve stimulation and carotid baroreceptor stimulation therapies may be provided using a single implantable pulse generator, which can coordinate delivery of the therapies.. ... Cyberonics Inc

Vagus nerve stimulation and subcutaneous defibrillation system

Systems and methods are provided for delivering vagus nerve stimulation and cardioversion/defibrillation therapies to patients for treating chronic heart failure. The vagus nerve stimulation and cardioversion/defibrillation therapies may be provided using a single implantable pulse generator, which can coordinate delivery of the therapies to provide an acute vagus nerve stimulation therapy in advance of delivering cardioversion-defibrillation energy.. ... Cyberonics Inc

Obstructive sleep apnea treatment devices, systems and methods

Devices, systems and methods of neurostimulation for treating obstructive sleep apnea.. . ... Cyberonics Inc

Implantable neurostimulator-implemented method for managing techyarrhythmia through vagus nerve stimulation

An implantable neurostimulator-implemented method for managing tachyarrhythmias through vagus nerve stimulation is provided. An implantable neurostimulator, including a pulse generator, is configured to deliver electrical therapeutic stimulation in a manner that results in creation and propagation (in both afferent and efferent directions) of action potentials within neuronal fibers of a patient's cervical vagus nerve. ... Cyberonics Inc

Devices and methods for sleep apnea treatment

Devices and methods for improving the coupling between the soft palate and the genioglossus. This may be accomplished, for example, but shortening or stiffening the palatoglossal arch. ... Cyberonics Inc

Neurostimulator with titration assist

A method of neurostimulation titration. The method includes setting titration parameters for an electrical signal delivered by an implantable medical device, initiating titration with the titration parameters and an aggressiveness profile, performing titration by increasing at least one of a current amplitude, a frequency, a pulse width or a duty cycle of the electrical signal until a threshold is reached or a side effect is detected, pausing the titration while waiting for commands from the patient or caregiver, and resuming the titration in response to receiving authorization from an external device.. ... Cyberonics Inc

Optimization of cranial nerve stimulation to treat seizure disorders during sleep

A method includes determining sleep cycle information related to a sleep cycle of a patient based on body parameter data. The method also includes adjusting a cranial nerve stimulation parameter based on the sleep cycle information.. ... Cyberonics Inc

Screening devices and methods for obstructive sleep apnea therapy

Devices and methods for treating obstructive sleep apnea by first performing an assessment of the patient that involves observing the patient's upper airway during a tongue protrusion maneuver. The assessment may, for example, be done using endoscopy to observe the upper airway while the patient is awake in the supine position. ... Cyberonics Inc

Detecting seizures based on heartbeat data

A method includes receiving heartbeat data of a patient and receiving activity data of the patient. The activity data includes one or more activity values that are related to an activity level of the patient and that are measured independently of the heartbeat data. ... Cyberonics Inc

Implantable neurostimulator-implemented method for enhancing heart failure patient awakening through vagus nerve stimulation

An implantable neurostimulator-implemented method for managing tachyarrhythmias upon a patient's awakening from sleep through vagus nerve stimulation is provided. An implantable neurostimulator, including a pulse generator, is configured to deliver electrical therapeutic stimulation in a manner that results in creation and propagation (in both afferent and efferent directions) of action potentials within neuronal fibers comprising the cervical vagus nerve of a patient. ... Cyberonics Inc

Neurostimulation titration process

Systems and methods are provided for delivering neurostimulation therapies to patients for treating chronic heart failure. A titration process is used to gradually increase the stimulation intensity to a desired therapeutic level. ... Cyberonics Inc

Neurostimulation titration process via adaptive parametric modification

Systems and methods are provided for delivering neurostimulation therapies to patients. A titration process is used to gradually increase the stimulation intensity to a desired therapeutic level. ... Cyberonics Inc
