Title
(EN) SHEATH, EPIDURAL CATHETER SYSTEM, AND METHOD FOR INSERTING A CATHETER
(FR) SYSTEME DE CATHETER AVEC GAINE POUR ANESTHESIE EPIDURALE ET METHODE D'INSERTION DU CATHETER
Abstract
(EN)
An epidural catheter system (10) for inserting a catheter tube (90) into an epidural space of a patient that includes a stylet (20), an epidural needle (30), a sheath (40), a glass syringe (80), and a catheter tube (90). The system (10) allows a physician, e.g., an anesthesiologist, to insert the catheter tube (90) into an epidural space in a patient without the need to slide the epidural needle (30) over the catheter tube (90) when removing the epidural needle (30) from the patient. The sheath (40) includes a generally elongated body (42) comprising a first end having a point (45), a second end (46), an outer surface, and an inner surface defining a passageway extending from the first end to a second end (46). A slot (56) extends from the outer surface to the inner surface from the first end, and adjacent to the second end (46).
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un système (10) de cathéter pour anesthésie épidurale permettant d'insérer un tube cathéter (90) dans l'espace épidural d'un patient et qui comprend un stylet (20), une aiguille épidurale (30), une gaine (40), une seringue en verre (80), et un tube cathéter (90). Le système (10) permet à un médecin, par exemple un anesthésiste, d'insérer le tube cathéter (90) dans un espace épidural du patient sans devoir faire glisser l'aiguille épidurale (30) sur le tube cathéter (90) lorsqu'il retire l'aiguille épidurale (30) du patient. La gaine (40) comprend un corps (42) allongé possédant une première extrémité avec une pointe (45), une seconde extrémité (46), une surface extérieure et une surface intérieure définissant un passage qui s'étend de la première extrémité à la seconde extrémité (46). Une rainure (56), adjacente à la seconde extrémité (46), s'étend de la surface extérieure à la surface intérieure de la première extrémité.
