The remedē system is a fully implanted neurostimulator intended for treatment of moderate-to-severe central sleep apnea in adults. The remedē system delivers unilateral transvenous phrenic nerve stimulation to cause diaphragmatic contraction that mimics a normal breathing pattern. The contraction of the diaphragm creates a negative intrathoracic pressure similar to that generated by normal breathing, resulting in a decrease in central apneas during sleep. It is not indicated for treatment of obstructive sleep apnea.
