Abstract

In this work, we present a simulation environment that makes it possible to determine threshold currents for magnetic peripheral nerve stimulation. Using the phrenic nerve as an example, we show that coil currents as low as 600 A are sufficient to trigger an action potential. These findings may help to advance research into artificial respiration using magnetic stimulation.
