Title (EN) TRACHEOTRODE AND TRACHEAL ELECTROVENTILATION SYSTEM
(FR) TRACHEOTRODE ET SYSTEME D'ELECTROVENTILATION TRACHEALE
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A tracheotrode (40) for electroventilation comprising a tracheal tube (42) having an inflation cuff (48) on its distal end (46) and a bipolar electrode configuration along a surface of the tube including a first electrode (51) proximal to the inflation cuff and a second electrode (52) distal to the inflation cuff. A system and method of electroventilation are also disclosed in which an electrical pulse train is supplied to the electrodes to stimulate inspiration. A cuffless endotracheal tube may be suitable in certain applications, and an embodiment is also contemplated in which a cuff made of conductive elastomer serves as an electrode itself.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une trachéotrode (40) destinée à l'électroventilation comprenant un tube trachéal (42) possédant un ballonnet pneumatique (48) sur sa partie distale (46) et un agencement d'électrode bipolaire le long d'une surface de ce tube comprenant une première électrode (51) proximale par rapport au ballonnet pneumatique et une seconde électrode (52) distale par rapport à ce même ballonnet. Cette invention concerne aussi un système et un procédé d'électroventilation dans lesquels un train d'impulsions électrique est délivré aux électrodes de façon à stimuler l'inspiration. Un tube endotrachéal sans ballonnet peut convenir dans certaines applications, et un mode de réalisation prévoit un ballonnet constitué d'élastomère conducteur qui sert en soi d'électrode.
