Vagal Nerve Stimulator
What is a Vagal Nerve Stimulator?
Vagal nerve stimulation (VNS) is a type of neuromodulation that involves implanting a device to deliver gentle electrical impulses to the brain via the vagus nerve. This therapeutic approach can support individuals experiencing frequent seizures by reducing the number of occurrences. With VNS, swiping a magnet to abort seizures is a capability that can help caregivers provide support, giving patients and their families a stronger sense of control.
