hi. i have read about this diaphragm pacemaker. does anyone have any experience with it,or any info to pass on. from what i understand it can be very useful in keeping the diaphragm working, therefore the need for artificial ventillation is very diminished. any input will be appreciated. thank you

I came across a possible contact:-

Alison Bibb
University Hospitals of Cleveland
11100 Euclid Ave.
Cleveland, OH 44106
(216) 844-5018

I donot know anything about these people, but I understand they were involved in the development of the device.

If you have little bit of time can you explain in simply terms the rules of American football (not too info much) ie how many points for a goal over the goal post and under, how long the game lasts and how many players. We get the sport on TV here and I would just like to understand it a bit.

Best wishes to everyone and have a peaceful Christmas
