High frequency spinal cord stimulation (HF-SCS) is a novel and more physiologic method of inspiratory muscle activation which involves stimulation of spinal cord pathways. In the present study, we determined if activation of the inspiratory intercostal muscles alone by this technique could be utilized to maintain artificial ventilation. In 7 anesthetized dogs, following C2 spinal cord section and bilateral phrenicotomy, trains of electrical stimulation (12 times/min) were applied at the T2… CONTINUE READING
