Lower thoracic spinal cord stimulation (SCS) may be a useful method to restore an effective cough mechanism. In dogs, two groups of studies were performed to evaluate the mechanism of the expiratory muscle activation during stimulation at the T(9)-T(10) level, which results in the greatest changes in airway pressure. In one group, expiratory muscle activation was monitored by evoked muscle compound action potentials (CAPs) from the internal intercostal muscles in the 10th, 11th, and 12th… CONTINUE READING
