|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Asthma||Device: Resolve Stimulator and Proximity Lead||Not Applicable|
The present study is to evaluate the safety of a new neurostimulator device, the Resolve Stimulator and Proximity Lead™, which comprises an external electrical signal generator coupled to temporary electrode that is percutaneously inserted in the neck.
Sponsor believes, based on animal testing data provided as well as consultations with physicians who regularly treat patients suffering from attacks of acute bronchoconstriction in ER and inpatient hospital settings, that this device could be used in the skilled care hospital setting to help rapidly relax the smooth muscle in the airway, relieving a clinically significant portion of the bronchoconstriction suffered by patients experiencing moderate to severe asthma attacks, allowing more effective delivery of inhaled medications to restore the patient to his or her baseline respiration status.

- Safety- Number of Participants With Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]Safety- Number of participants that reported Adverse Events
- Improvement of Common Measures of Breathing Performance, Forced Expiry Volume in 1second (FEV1). [ Time Frame: 60 minutes ]
An assessment of Forced Expiry Volume in 1second (FEV1) measurements were taken throughout the course of treatment (15,30 and 60 minutes).
Peak FEV1 measurements were recorded for each subject, and the number of minutes the subject had received treatment at the time of peak FEV1.
The threshold for improvement was set at 12% over baseline at any of the time points (15,30 and 60 minutes). Outcome measure data indicates the number of subjects above 12%.
