We all breathe, and often take it for granted. Our diaphragm is our core breathing muscle. Mechanically ventilated patients in critical care have impaired diaphragm activity, which can lead to severe consequences.
Stimit is developing solutions for non-invasive diaphragm stimulation to re-activate diaphragm activity in critical care.
diaphragm contraction creates physiological negative pressure
Machine forces air into lung
Unnatural positive pressure
Inactive, passive breathing muscles
