Dr. Patrick Nemechek reports on a promising clinical trial in the Journal of Clinical and Experimental Immunology
OVERLAND PARK, KANSAS, UNITED STATES, December 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nemechek Technologies is proud to announce publication of a peer-reviewed research article by its CEO, Patrick Nemechek D.O. Entitled, ‘Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation is Associated with Lower Mechanical Ventilation and Mortality in COVID-19 Patients: An interim Safety Analysis’, the study reveals that transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation (tVNS) is safe and potentially beneficial for hospitalized patients with COVID-19 pneumonia. Patients meeting clinical criteria received tVNS therapy for 5 minutes 2-4 times per day with the Nemechek Technologies Vitality Smartcable® neuromodulator.
Patient outcomes included infrequent use of mechanical ventilation, and a high rate of survival. Interim analysis found the mortality rate and the frequency of mechanical ventilation to be less than almost all other large COVID-19 cohorts. The study, an ongoing single-arm, uncontrolled open-label, observational trial to assess (tVNS) in hospitalized SARS-CoV-2 infected subjects, is being conducted at Hospital Zonal Virgen Del Carmen in Zarate, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
“We are extremely encouraged by the reduced mortality in patients receiving tVNS therapy. The trial is moving forward to achieve its planned total enrollment, and we will publish further results once all 50 subjects have been treated.” – Patrick Nemechek D.O.
