Abstract

L'invention concerne un neurostimulateur transcutané, ainsi que son utilisation pour la respiration artificielle ou, en combinaison avec un respirateur conventionnel, pour éviter une atrophie du diaphragme. Le neurostimulateur comprend des électrodes et un générateur d'impulsions et permet de générer des stimuli complexes, formés de stimuli individuels, les stimuli individuels d'un stimulus complexe ayant la même forme et la même fréquence de répétition.
