Barostim

« Back to Glossary Index

Barostim is a device that uses electrical impulses to stimulate the baroreceptors in the blood vessels. Baroreceptors are specialized nerve cells that detect changes in blood pressure and transmit that information to the brain. By stimulating these receptors, the Barostim device aims to improve blood flow and reduce the risk of hypertension and heart disease. The device is typically implanted under the skin in the upper chest and is controlled by a remote programming device. It is still under clinical trial and not yet FDA-approved.
