Albany Medical Center Offers New Device to Help Control Seizures in Patients with Epilepsy by Detecting Sudden Increase in Heart Rate
Oct 6 15
Albany Medical Center is offering a new device designed to help control seizures in patients with epilepsy by detecting a sudden increase in heartrate. The AspireSR vagal nerve stimulator, similar to a pacemaker, is implanted under the skin in the chest. When the device detects a sudden increase in heart rate, which accompanies the early stage of a seizure, it attempts to electrically interrupt the seizure before the patient loses consciousness by sending an electrical impulse through a small wire connecting the device to the vagus nerve. While vagus nerve stimulation has been a common treatment for epileptic seizures since the late 1990s, Albany Med neurologist Anthony Ritaccio, M.D., '84 says the AspireSR device has a better ability to detect and treat seizures before they occur. AspireSR was FDA approved in June. Albany Med performed its first surgery with the device in early July and has implanted five devices to date. The epilepsy program expects to implant 30-40 devices per year. The device is only implantable at Level 4 epilepsy centers such as Albany Medical Center. A Level 4 rating from the National Association of Epilepsy Centers indicates a center offers the most advanced medical and surgical treatment options for epilepsy.
