Title
(EN) COLONIC OR INTESTINAL IRRIGATION SYSTEM WITH DIRECTIONAL FLOW MONITOR
(FR) SYSTEME D'IRRIGATION DU COLON OU DES INTESTINS AVEC CONTROLEUR D'ECOULEMENT DIRECTIONNEL
Abstract
(EN)
System for determining when to stop further supply of irrigating fluid (12) to a colon or other intestinal tract, by monitoring peristolic stimulation through observation of fluctuations of low through the fluid supply conduit. The monitor consists of a transparent plastic cylinder (20) normally in a horizontal position in which in inspection ball (40) moves in the direction of flow. The ball has a specific gravity greater than the water it floats in. A level gauge (52) with a air bubble may be provided to indicate that the cylinder (30) is in a horizontal position.
(FR)
Système pour déterminer le moment où stopper l'amenée d'un fluide d'irrigation (12) au côlon ou à d'autres voies intestinales, en surveillant la stimulation péristaltique par l'observation des fluctuations d'écoulement à travers le conduit d'amenée de fluides. Le contrôleur est formé d'un cylindre de plastique transparent (20) normalement en position horizontale dans lequel une boule d'inspection (40) se déplace dans la direction d'écoulement. Le poids spécifique de la boule est supérieur à celui de l'eau dans laquelle elle nage. Une jauge de niveau (52) avec bulle d'air peut être prévue pour indiquer que le cylindre (30) est en position horizontale.
