Programmed diaphragmatic pacing using implanted neuromodulators represents an emerging method for providing pulmonary support using negative pressure ventilation. The implantable, rechargeable, programmable and miniaturized nature of diaphragmatic pacers may obviate many of the management issues associated with noninvasive positive pressure ventilation devices. Closed loop systems may facilitate the implementation of diaphragmatic pacing for the treatment of many indications. They may allow for… Expand

Absence of Device‐Device Interaction (DDI) in a Patient with Cardiac and Diaphragmatic Pacemakers for Congenital Central Hypoventilation Syndrome
Autonomic control of ventilation is impaired in patients with Ondine's curse or congenital central hypoventilation syndrome, but voluntary control remains intact, and a diaphragmatic pacemaker inserted in early childhood caused diaphagmatic pacer spikes observed during the interrogation of the cardiac pacemaker.

Fundamental Considerations in Pacing of the Diaphragm for Chronic Ventilatory Insufficiency: A Multi‐Center Study
A comprehensive analysis of the pacing methods, complication and results fom the Center group yielded information on the early experience with diaphragm pacing important to its future application. Expand
The effects of mechanical ventilation on the cardiovascular system.
Positive-pressure ventilation may improve gas exchange, decrease the work-cost of breathing, and rest respiratory muscles, but it also will alter cardiac output and may modify blood flowExpand
Phrenic nerve pacing in a tetraplegic patient via intramuscular diaphragm electrodes.
In one patient with ventilator-dependent tetraplegia, PNP with intramuscular diaphragm electrodes via laparoscopic surgery may provide a less invasive and less costly alternative to conventional PNP. Expand
Central Hypoventilation; Long‐term Ventilatory Assistance by Radiofrequency Electrophrenic Respiration
The first clinical application of the EPR using radiofrequency induction to obtain ventilatory assistance was reported in 1964 and was short term application in the immediate postoperative period. Expand
Noninvasive ventilation in cardiogenic pulmonary edema: a multicenter randomized trial.
During acute respiratory failure due to cardiogenic pulmonary edema the early use of noninvasive pressure support ventilation accelerates the improvement in PaO2/FIO2, PaCO2, dyspnea, and respiratory rate, but does not affect the overall clinical outcome. Expand
Hemodynamic effects of continuous negative chest pressure ventilation in heart failure.
Despite potentially increased left ventricular afterload, external negative chest wall ventilation with NEEP does not appear to significantly depress QT compared with CPPV even when Ppaw is high and myocardial contractility is impaired. Expand
Supramaximal inflation improves lung compliance in subjects with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
The findings suggest that atelectasis or increased alveolar surface forces are present in ALS patients and that these patients will have increased work of breathing. Expand
Using ventilator and cardiovascular graphics in the patient who is hemodynamically unstable.
Effects of respiratory pressures on hemodynamics are considered and how cardiac pressures can be transmitted to the airway and cause ventilator malfunction is considered. Expand
Diaphragm Pacing with a Quadripolar Phrenic Nerve Electrode: An International Study
Although pacer complications were not increased among pediatric as compared to adult patients, the incidence of complications was highest among active pediatric patients with CCHS, and longitudinal study of these patients will provide invaluable information for modification and improvement of the quadripolar system.
