Neuro-stimulation to control pain during cardioversion defibrillation

Neuro-stimulation to control pain during cardioversion defibrillation

Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1255(3), Feb 19

A system and method for reducing the perceived pain by a patient occurring during cardioversion/defibrillation countershocks to the heart. The system comprises an electrode subsystem for positioning at least one electrode in contact with a patient, a pain reducing stimulation subsystem for providing pain reducing electromagnetic stimulation to the electrode subsystem, a cardioversion/defibrillation countershock subsystem so that delivery of pain reducing stimulation to the patient begins prior to a cardioversion/defibrillation countershock.
