SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - This device is helping COVID patients breathe easier in a shocking way.

The story is in today’s Medical Moment.

COVID-19 cases have spiked drastically this winter, going from 10 million cases at the beginning of November to nearly 15 million cases less than a month later.

Hospitalization rates are also at an all-time high.

And now, as Martie Salt reports, a device mainly used to treat migraines has FDA approval to help COVID patients breathe.

The stimulation that gammaCore provides can also reduce inflammation and ease the long-term effects of COVID-19.
