Yet another life-saving application of #neurostimulation: Reducing postoperative atrial fibrillation with low-level #VNS:
With so much potential in treating disorders and saving more lives (literally), we may need to find ways to empower research on neuromodulation even further. One possibility is programmable medical devices. Purpose built medical devices require large teams to develop, years of development time and big budgets. With the latest advancements in electronics, device miniaturization, and software programmability, latest generation devices may easily lower the entry barrier, accelerate research, lower cost, and bring life changing new therapies to masses affordably.
