Title (EN) INVOLUNTARY CONTRACTION INDUCED PRESSURE AS A MEDICAL DIAGNOSTIC TOOL
(FR) PRESSION INDUITE PAR UNE CONTRACTION INVOLONTAIRE EN TANT QU'OUTIL DE DIAGNOSTIC
Abstract: front page image
(EN) Techniques for detecting stress urinary incontinence use a pressure sensing catheter the electrical indications of which are applied to a processing unit for detecting pressure levels generated during involuntary coughs. The involuntary coughs are induced preferentially by using a nebulized composition of L-tartrate in a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier. The area under the curve generated from pressure samples is calculated and used in conjunction with the detection of urine leakage to determine the existence of stress urinary incontinence.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des techniques permettant la détection de l'incontinence urinaire d'effort mettant en oeuvre un cathéter de détection de pression dont les indications électriques sont appliquées à une unité de traitement pour la détection de niveaux de pression générés lors de toux involontaires. Les toux involontaires sont de préférence induites au moyen d'une composition en aérosol à base de L-tartrate dans un support pharmaceutiquement acceptable. La zone sous la courbe générée à partir d'échantillons de pression est calculée et utilisée conjointement avec la détection de fuite d'urine afin de déterminer l'existence de l'incontinence urinaire d'effort.
