Title: DEVICES AND METHODS FOR SENSOR-ENHANCED NEEDLE PLACEMENT
Abstract:
The invention features devices that measure the pressure of an injection or intrinsic physiologic pressures generated and measures the fluid content, e.g., blood content, of aspirated fluid during medical interventions requiring hypodermic needles, e.g., fluid sampling or medical injection procedures. The devices feature pressure and fluid content, e.g., blood, sensors that trigger indicators to alert the user of an issue during the procedure(s). The invention features a flexible cover for devices of the invention to facilitate introduction of a device into a sterile field. The invention also provides methods of using such devices and covers.
