Clinical Research with Medical Devices

Therapeutic Expertise

Heart Failure
I have 5 years of experience working as a Field Clinical Engineer for an FDA approval trial of a novel therapy for the treatment of heart failure. The investigational device is a system that electrically stimulates the vagus nerve located in the right side of the neck. I provided technical support during the surgical implant procedures as well as during patient therapy optimisation visits.

Hypertension
For a period of 6 years I participated in clinical market approval trials of a novel therapy for the treatment of resistant hypertension. The investigational device was a system that electrically stimulates the baroreceptors located in the carotid sinus. I provided technical support during the surgical implant procedures as well as during patient therapy optimisation visits.
