Another project involves the use of cardiac pacemaker technology to try to stabilise ventilation. ICCH has been involved in a decade-long programme of research using biomathematical approaches to the complex interplay of cardiovascular, respiratory and metabolic physiology in cardiovascular disease. One of the insights involved the use of mathematics to predict a (previously undescribed) method of dynamically manipulating ventilation using a standard cardiac pacemaker.

‘PACEMAX allows us to quantify the haemodynamic response to pacemaker settings by simple non-invasive measurement such as blood pressure.’

‘We hope that in the future this technology could be included on all cardiac pacemakers used in heart failure.’
