Vagus Nerve Stimulation in Patients with Covid-19?

Corona Virus

Link – Targeting the cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway with vagus nerve stimulation in patients with Covid-19? Abstract Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), at the origin of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, is characterized by a dramatic cytokine storm in some critical patients with COVID-19. This storm is due to the release of high levels of […]

Implications for Neuromodulation to Control Inflammation in COVID-19.

Link – Implications for Neuromodulation Therapy to Control Inflammation and Related Organ Dysfunction in COVID-19. Abstract COVID-19 is a syndrome that includes more than just isolated respiratory disease, as severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV2) also interacts with the cardiovascular, nervous, renal, and immune system at multiple levels, increasing morbidity in patients with underlying cardiometabolic […]

Specific EEG Encephalopathy Pattern in SARS-CoV-2 Patients.

Link – Specific EEG Encephalopathy Pattern in SARS-CoV-2 Patients. Abstract We used quantified electroencephalography (qEEG) to define the features of encephalopathy in patients released from the intensive care unit after severe illness from COVID-19. Artifact-free 120-300 s epoch lengths were visually identified and divided into 1 s windows with 10% overlap. Differential channels were grouped […]

Guidelines for TMS/tES Research through the COVID-19

Link – Guidelines for TMS/tES Clinical Services and Research through the COVID-19 Pandemic. Abstract BACKGROUND: The COVID-19 pandemic has broadly disrupted biomedical treatment and research including non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS). Moreover, the rapid onset of societal disruption and evolving regulatory restrictions may not have allowed for systematic planning of how clinical and research work may […]

tVNS to treat respiratory symptoms associated with COVID-19

Corona Virus

Link – Use of non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation to treat respiratory symptoms associated with COVID-19: A theoretical hypothesis and early clinical experience. Abstract OBJECTIVES: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), is a pandemic with no specific therapeutic agents and substantial mortality, and finding new treatments is critical. Most […]
