Clinical Trial

Ventilator Induced Diaphragm Dysfunction, Breathing Dysfunction Clinical Trial 20193088

[LCID Study Number: 20193088]

A Randomized, Controlled, Open-labeled, Multi-center Clinical Trial to Evaluate the Safe and Effective Performance of the Lungpacer Diaphragm Pacing Therapy System in Patients Who Have Failed to Wean From Mechanical Ventilation

The purpose of this study is to test whether stimulating the nerves (phrenic nerves) that control the main breathing muscle (diaphragm), can help to strengthen this muscle so that patients who have difficulty breathing without the breathing machine can regain breathing on their own.
