Title (EN) DEVICE AND METHOD FOR OPENING AN AIRWAY
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ D'OUVERTURE DE VOIES RESPIRATOIRES
Abstract:
(EN) The present invention provides devices and methods for creating and/or maintaining patency of the upper airway passage. The device is configured to fit under the chin of a subject at an external location corresponding approximately with the subject's internal soft tissue associated with the neck's anterior triangle. The device includes a flexible self-supporting chamber structure with multi-radius geometry including a particular chamber height range relative to the chamber base span to optimize the chamber's ability to maintain shape when a therapeutic level of negative pressure is applied within the therapy chamber.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des dispositifs et des procédés pour créer et/ou maintenir la perméabilité du passage des voies respiratoires supérieures. Le dispositif est conçu pour s'ajuster sous le menton d'un sujet à un emplacement externe correspondant approximativement au tissu mou interne du sujet associé au triangle antérieur du cou. Le dispositif comprend une structure de chambre autoportante souple à géométrie multi-rayon comprenant une plage particulière de hauteur de chambre par rapport à l'étendue de base la de chambre pour optimiser la capacité de la chambre à conserver sa forme lorsqu'un niveau thérapeutique de pression négative est appliqué à l'intérieur de la chambre de thérapie.
