Pacemakers, Breath, Diaphragmatic/Phrenic Nerve
Definition : Breath pacemakers that apply electrical stimuli to the phrenic nerve to rhythmically contract the diaphragm. These pacemakers usually consist of an implanted receiver with electrodes that are placed around a patient's phrenic nerve and an external transmitter for sending the stimulating pulses transcutaneously to the implanted receiver.
