  • Patent number: 8914116
    Abstract: An electronic stimulation system has a casing; electronics inside the casing a first detector arranged to sense whether a human being is breathing or not, a stimulation device arranged to receive a control signal from said electronics and to provide stimuli to a nasal philtre or a human nasopharynx. The electronics generate the control signal in dependence on the breathing signal and the system has a holding device for attaching the stimulation device to the nose.

  • Patent number: 8781575
    Abstract: A method for providing a resuscitating treatment of a human being, which has the following actions sensing human muscle activity, human breathing activity, human neural activity or human cerebral activity, determining whether the human being is in a state of developing apnoea by a processing unit based on the sensing, provoking an induced aspiration reflex by a resuscitating stimulation of a respiratory area of a human brain stem by providing a stimulus with a stimulation device to a location distant from the respiratory area of the human brain stem upon the processing unit determining the state of developing apnoea, the location being a nasal filter of the human being or a nasopharyngeal area of the human being.

  • Patent number: 8639343
    Abstract: An electronic stimulation system to be worn in, behind or on a human ear having a casing; a detection device to sense breathing activity from a human being and to generate a detection signal; electronics within the casing and having a controller connected to the detection device to process the detection signal and generate a control signal when the controller has determined that the human being is in a state of developing apnoea; a stimulation device to receive the control signal from the electronics and to provide stimuli to one or more points of the human ear; wherein when the electronic stimulation system is worn in, behind or on the human ear, the stimulation device is pushed against a predetermined portion of the human ear.

  • Patent number: 8532761
    Abstract: The invention relates to a resuscitation device for humans. The resuscitation device is designed to provide resuscitating stimulation of the respiratory area of the human brain stem, preferably from a location distant from said respiratory area. The invention further relates to a method for providing a resuscitating treatment to a human. Parameters are measured by a number of sensor means and processed by a processing means for providing a response by a number of stimulation means. The stimulation means are electrical, mechanical or chemical stimulation means.
