|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Sleep Apnea||Device: Stimulating the phrenic nerve intravenously using high frequency electrical pulses using an EP catheter connected to external pulse stimulator.||Not Applicable|
Purpose The Mapping for Transvenous Phrenic Nerve Stimulation Study (MAPS) is being conducted to evaluate the feasibility of transvascular stimulation of phrenic nerves via an EP catheter advanced into the great veins.
Study Design This is a prospective, non-randomized, acute feasibility study.

Experimental: phrenic nerve stimulation
intravenously stimulating the phrenic nerve
Device: Stimulating the phrenic nerve intravenously using high frequency electrical pulses using an EP catheter connected to external pulse stimulator.
Intravenously stimulating the phrenic nerve with an EP catheter using high frequency electrical pulses as generated by the model 19039 external neurostimulator.
- tidal volume [ Time Frame: one hour ]
To evaluate the feasibility of transvenous electrical stimulation of the phrenic nerves to elicit inspiration.
In more detail •Characterize inspiratory response to changes on stimulation parameters (electrode configuration, amplitude, frequency, and pulse width).
•Characterize other potential physiologic changes or side effects associated with transvenous nerve stimulation.
