VNS Therapy is delivered by a generator similar to a pacemaker and a thin wire that stimulates the vagus nerve in the neck. The vagus nerve then sends these pulses to the brain to help control seizures all day, every day. Physicians will adjust the settings to meet the needs of each individual. A handheld patient magnet offers additional seizure control for some people. By briefly holding the magnet over the generator when a seizure is coming on or during a seizure, the seizure may be stopped or shortened in duration or intensity, as well as the recovery period shortened. You can collect and reference the implant device settings on Seizure Tracker along with when the magnet is swiped to stop or prevent a seizure.
