Pulsed passive charge recovery circuitry for an implantable medical device
Patent number: 11577073
Assignee: Boston Scientific Neuromodulation Corporation (Valencia, CA)
Inventors: Emanuel Feldman (Simi Valley, CA), Jordi Parramon (Valencia, CA), Goran N. Marnfeldt (Valencia, CA), Adam T. Featherstone (Meridian, ID, US)

The problem of a potentially high amount of supra-threshold charge passing through the patient's tissue at the end of an Implantable Pulse Generator (IPG) program is addressed by circuitry that periodically dissipates only small amount of the charge stored on capacitances (e.g., DC-blocking capacitors) during a pulsed post-program recovery period. This occurs by periodically activating control signals to turn on passive recovery switches to form a series of discharge pulses each dissipating a sub-threshold amount of charge. Such periodic pulsed dissipation may extend the duration of post-program recovery, but is not likely to be noticeable by the patient when the programming in the IPG changes from a first to a second program. Periodic pulsed dissipation of charge may also be used during a program, such as between stimulation pulses.
