Title (EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR MONITORING GASTROINTESTINAL FUNCTION AND PHYSIOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET SYSTÈME POUR SURVEILLER LA FONCTION GASTRO-INTESTINALE ET LES CARACTÉRISTIQUES PHYSIOLOGIQUES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A system and method for evaluating gastrointestinal motility and, optionally, other physiological characteristics (e.g., pulse rate) that can be effectively employed to acquire one or more signals associated with acoustic energy (i.e. sound) emanating from an abdominal region of a body and determine at least one gastrointestinal parameter or event based on the acoustic energy signal(s) is described. The gastrointestinal parameter can include a gastrointestinal event, including gastrointestinal mixing, emptying, contraction and propulsion, and gastrointestinal transit time, or a gastrointestinal system disorder, including reflux disease, irritable bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, constipation, diarrhea, and a migrating motor complex disorder.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un système et un procédé qui permettent d'évaluer la motilité gastro-intestinale et, éventuellement, d'autres caractéristiques physiologiques (notamment la fréquence cardiaque), et qui peuvent être efficacement utilisés pour acquérir un ou plusieurs signaux associés à l'énergie acoustique (c'est-à-dire le son) émanant d'une région abdominale d'un organisme et déterminer au moins un paramètre ou un événement gastro-intestinal sur la base des signaux d'énergie acoustique. Le paramètre gastro-intestinal peut inclure un événement gastro-intestinal, notamment les mouvement de brassage, la vidange, les contractions et les mouvements propulsifs, le temps de transit gastro-intestinaux ou un trouble du tractus gastro-intestinal, notamment le reflux, pathologique le syndrome du côlon irritable, la colite ulcéreuse, la constipation, la diarrhée, et un trouble du complexe moteur migrant.
