Impedance, expressed in Ohms, is the ratio of the voltage impressed across a pair of terminals to the current flow between those terminals. In direct-current (DC) circuits, impedance corresponds to resistance. In alternating current (AC) circuits, impedance . A macroshock situation is when current is applied to tissue far from the organ of interest, usually the heart. The current is then spread out more or less uniformly, and rather large currents are needed in .

Electrocoagulation uses low-voltage, moderately damped or partially rectified, high-amperage current in a biterminal fashion to cause deeper tissue destruction and hemostasis with minimal carbonization (Fig. ).Low voltage is sufficient to establish current flow .
As with any material implanted in the body, it is important to minimize or eliminate foreign body response and maximize effectual integration. Neural implants have the potential to increase the quality of life for patients with such disabilities as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, epilepsy, depression, and the complexity of interfaces between a neural implant and brain tissue. Cochlear implant (CI) performance varies dramatically between subjects. Although the causes of this variability remain unclear, the electrode-neuron interface is thought to play an important role. Here we .

Annals of Otology, Rhinology & Laryngology, 98, 3–: Kelly N. Jahn, Kelly N. Jahn, Molly D. Bergan, Julie G. Arenberg, Julie G. Arenberg. In humans, a low current level is often applied to prevent tissue damage. 8 Compared to the high resistivity of thoracic tissue (ρ = –5, Ω cm), blood and fluid (ρ = 65– Ωcm) provide much lower resistance to current.
9 Thus, regions of the body with higher blood or fluid content will present with lower impedance, whereas regions with more solid tissue Cited by: The objective of the study was to explore the effect of electrode encapsulation by fibrous scar tissue on electrical potential distributions and auditory nerve fibre excitation patterns.
Voltage and current in the electrode wires are measured and they define the immittance. However, in the tissue volume the current flow must be defined with both magnitude and direction, and the parameter is the current density, a spatial vector.

In principle, electrical stimulation of the cochlea is a simple process. Intracochlear electrodes, when stimulated, create electrical field patterns within the cochlea.
In the vicinity of the neural elements. A series of animal experiments was conducted to characterize changes in the complex impedance of chronically implanted electrodes in neural tissue.
Consistent trends in impedance changes were observed across all animals, characterized as a general increase in the measured impedance. We, therefore, hypothesized that the most significant contribution to the measured Z is from the electrode-tissue interface where there is high impedance to electrical flow, and that beyond this interface the contribution to the measured Z is negligible.
This is because beyond the electrode-tissue interface the current finds its way to flow. Implantable neuroprostheses such as cochlear implants, deep brain stimulators, spinal cord stimulators, and retinal implants use charge-balanced alternating current (AC) pulses to recover delivered charge and thus mitigate toxicity from electrochemical reactions occurring at the metal-tissue.
The shape and the electrode material have large impact of the current flow distribution around the electrodes, as well as the contact impedance between the electrodes and the brain tissue.
This work determines the contact impedance. The major function of the middle ear is to match relatively low-impedance airborne sounds to the higher-impedance fluid of the inner ear.
The term “impedance” in this context describes a medium's resistance to movement. Normally, when sound travels from a low-impedance medium like air to a much higher-impedance. Abstract: Those suffering from a severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss can obtain substantial benefit from a cochlear implant prosthesis.
An electrode array implanted in the inner ear stimulates auditory nerve fibers by direct injection of electrical current. A major limitation of today's technology is the imprecise control of intracochlear current flow. Clinical impedance measurements for deep brain stimulation (DBS) electrodes in human patients are normally in the range – Ω.
DBS devices utilize voltage-controlled stimulation; therefore, the current delivered to the tissue is inversely proportional to the impedance. The measurement of tissue impedance was first a pplied to impedance plethysmography. The most successful application of this technique, however, is impedance cardiography, which can be used for the.
A common objective measure used to assess device and electrode function is impedance (a measure of the resistance to current flow). Impedance measures are affected by the electrode-tissue interface, resistivity in the fluid/tissue medium, and resistivity of the electrode contact and lead wires.
It is not uncommon to encounter impedance abnormalities. Impedances within the normal range (when measured in the common ground mode of stimulation) suggest that current flow occurs in the tissue and fluid of the cochlea.
Low impedance measurements may suggest that particular electrodes are short circuiting, whereas high impedances.
A. Tissue Impedance Circuit Explanation As discussed earlier, a simplified model of tissue impedance consists of a parallel Rt and Cc. Nominal values for Rt and Cc are Rt = 2 kΩ and Cc = nF.

The reason is that one has to reach the required threshold current with a fixed battery voltage, and this limits the maximum allowable circuit impedance. The latter, however, is mainly the electrode-tissue impedance.
