Title (EN) HAND-HELD DEVICE FOR INSERTING A NEEDLE INTO A NON-HOMOGENEOUS MATERIAL, PARTICULARLY FOR INTRAVENOUS CATHETERIZATION
(FR) DISPOSITIF MANUEL D'INSERTION D'UNE AIGUILLE DANS UN MATÉRIAU NON HOMOGÈNE, EN PARTICULIER POUR LE CATHÉTÉRISME INTRAVEINEUX
Abstract:
(EN) A hand-held device (10) for precisely positioning a tip (18) of a needle (16) into a blood vessel (V), at a desired target position, it comprises: a casing (12) adapted to be hand-held by an operator; a shaft (14) extending along a longitudinal axis (x) and carrying at a distal end thereof the needle (16), the shaft (14) being mounted in the casing (12); decoupling or actuating means (22, 22') respectively operable to decouple the shaft (14) from the casing (12); detection means (26) arranged to provide signals indicative of at least one physical characteristic of the vessel into which the needle tip (18) has to be inserted; and control means (24) operatively connected with the decoupling or actuating means (22, 22') and to the detection means (26) and configured to determine, based on the signals received from the detection means (26), whether the needle tip (18) has reached said target position and to operate the decoupling or actuating means (22, 22') to decouple the shaft (14), and hence the needle (16), from the casing (12) or to actively move the shaft (14) relative to the casing (12), respectively.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif portatif (10) servant à positionner avec précision une pointe (18) d'une aiguille (16) dans un vaisseau sanguin (V), à une position cible souhaitée, comprenant : un boîtier (12) conçu pour être tenu à la main par un opérateur ; une tige (14) qui s'étend le long d'un axe longitudinal (x) et qui porte l'aiguille (16) à une extrémité distale de celle-ci, la tige (14) étant montée dans le boîtier (12) ; des moyens de découplage ou d'actionnement (22, 22') qui peuvent être utilisés respectivement pour découpler la tige (14) du boîtier (12) ; des moyens de détection (26) conçus pour délivrer des signaux indicatifs d'au moins une caractéristique physique du récipient dans laquelle la pointe d'aiguille (18) doit être insérée ; et des moyens de commande (24) reliés fonctionnellement aux moyens de découplage ou d'actionnement (22, 22') et aux moyens de détection (26) et configurés pour déterminer, sur la base des signaux reçus de la part des moyens de détection (26), si la pointe d'aiguille (18) a atteint ladite position cible et pour actionner les moyens de découplage ou d'actionnement (22, 22') respectivement afin de découpler la tige (14), et par conséquent l'aiguille (16), du boîtier (12) ou pour déplacer activement la tige (14) par rapport au boîtier (12).
