FDA Approves Barostim Neo System for Advanced Heart Failure Patients. Similar to a pacemaker, the Barostim Neo System uses a pulse generator implanted below the collar bone with a lead that attaches to the carotid artery in the neck. It delivers electrical impulses to baroreceptors in the neck, which sense how blood is flowing through the carotid arteries and relays information to the brain. The brain, in turn, sends signals to the heart and blood vessels that relax the blood vessels.

Similar to a pacemaker, the Barostim Neo System uses a pulse generator implanted below the collar bone with a lead that attaches to the carotid artery in the neck. It delivers electrical impulses to baroreceptors in the neck, which sense how blood is flowing through the carotid arteries and relays information to the brain. The brain, in turn, sends signals to the heart and blood vessels that relax the blood vessels and inhibit the production of stress-related hormones to reduce heart failure symptoms.
