I have the Biotronik Eluna 8 pacemakser and Mri resitant leads. I cannot find information if my device is competable with the ‘Alpha Stim’. I want to use the Alpha Stim for the depression, anxiety and sleep problems I have. I already contacted Biotronik. I received the standard leaflet. The Alpha Stim is not on there.
On the site the following warning can be found:
Alpha-Stim may affect the operation of implanted demand type cardiac pacemakers and implanted defibrillators. Do not stimulate directly on the eyes, or press the probes over the carotid sinus (on the neck near the larynx).
Doe any of you know what a ‘demand type’ pacemaker is?
