Title (EN) A SURGICAL ARTICLE AND METHOD FOR MANAGING SURGICAL ARTICLES DURING A SURGICAL PROCEDURE
(FR) ARTICLE CHIRURGICAL ET PROCÉDÉ DE GESTION D'ARTICLES CHIRURGICAUX PENDANT UNE INTERVENTION CHIRURGICALE
Abstract:
(EN) Apparatus and method of locating and/or counting one or more surgical articles, wherein the surgical article may comprise a surgical sponge comprising a counting element and/or detecting element. The counting element and/or detecting element may comprise an RFID tag encapsulated in a housing or pouch that is coupled to the surgical sponge. The RFID tag may further comprise unique identification and/or location information relative to the surgical sponge. The RFID tag may be coupled to the sponge at an attachment position and/or oriented on the surgical sponge relative to a defined set of reference lines. The attachment position and/or orientation of the RFID tag on the surgical sponge may be configured to improve the accuracy of scanning the RFID tag. A plurality of surgical articles (i.e. surgical sponges) comprising RFID tags may be packaged or bundled via a strap or within a container.
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil et un procédé de localisation et/ou de comptage d'un ou de plusieurs articles chirurgicaux, où l'article chirurgical peut comprendre une éponge chirurgicale pourvue d'un élément de comptage et/ou d'un élément de détection. L'élément de comptage et/ou l'élément de détection peuvent comprendre une étiquette RFID encapsulée dans un boîtier ou une poche qui est couplée à l'éponge chirurgicale. L'étiquette RFID peut en outre comprendre des informations d'identification et/ou de localisation uniques relatives à l'éponge chirurgicale. L'étiquette RFID peut être couplée à l'éponge à une position de fixation et/ou orientée sur l'éponge chirurgicale par rapport à un ensemble défini de lignes de référence. La position de fixation et/ou l'orientation de l'étiquette RFID sur l'éponge chirurgicale peuvent être définies de façon à améliorer la précision de balayage de l'étiquette RFID. Une pluralité d'articles chirurgicaux (à savoir, éponges chirurgicales) pourvus d'étiquettes RFID peuvent être emballés ou regroupés à l'aide d'une sangle ou à l'intérieur d'un récipient.
