Title (EN) MAGNETIC DEVICE FOR GUIDING CATHETER AND METHOD OF USE THEREFOR
(FR) DISPOSITIF MAGNÉTIQUE DE GUIDAGE DE CATHÉTER ET PROCÉDÉ D'UTILISATION DE CELUI-CI
Abstract: front page image
(EN)One or more external magnets that are suitable for placement on the back or front of a patient's neck and methods for using the external magnet(s) to guide a feeding tube containing one or more internal magnets through the esophagus are described herein. The external magnet is applied to the back or the front of the patient's neck and the feeding tube is inserted into the patient's nose and advanced within the patient's body. The magnetic field of the external magnet combines with the magnetic field of the internal magnet to produce a sufficient magnetic force to pull or push the feeding tube apparatus against the posterior wall of the esophagus to prevent placement of the stylet in the patient's trachea or windpipe to prevent insertion into the patient's lungs.
(FR)L'invention concerne un ou plusieurs aimants externes qui sont appropriés pour être positionnés sur l'arrière ou l'avant du cou d'un patient et des procédés pour utiliser le ou les aimants externes pour guider un tube d'alimentation contenant un ou plusieurs aimants internes dans l'œsophage. L'aimant externe est appliqué sur l'arrière ou l'avant du cou du patient et le tube d'alimentation est inséré dans le nez du patient et avance dans le corps du patient. Le champ magnétique de l'aimant externe se combine avec le champ magnétique de l'aimant interne pour produire une force magnétique suffisante pour tirer ou pousser l'appareil de tube d'alimentation contre la paroi postérieure de l'œsophage pour empêcher un positionnement du stylet dans la trachée du patient pour empêcher une insertion dans les poumons du patient.
