Abstract

See full text

A characteristic of a washout period following the delivery of therapy to a patient according to a therapy program may be determined based on a physiological parameter of the patient. A washout period includes the period of time during which a carryover effect from the therapy delivery dissipates. Monitoring a washout period may be useful for timing the delivery of therapy according to different therapy programs during a therapy evaluation period. For example, at least one physiological signal of the patient may be monitored to automatically determine when a washout period has ended, e.g., when stimulation and carryover effects of therapy delivery according to a first therapy program have substantially dissipated, in order to determine when therapy delivery according to a second therapy program can be initiated.
