Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR MEASURING PRESSURE CHANGES IN STOMACH
(FR) APPAREIL PERMETTANT DE MESURER LES VARIATIONS DE PRESSION DANS L'ESTOMAC
Abstract:
(EN) A balloon catheter (100), suitable for delivery of a balloon to the stomach via application by the nose, the balloon catheter comprising a catheter (2) and one or more inflatable balloons (1) fixedly attached to the catheter. The balloons have an outer diameter from 4 to 7 cm, are made of a relatively hard material (e.g. durometer 70 to 100 shore A), and have an effective length of 7 to 18 cm or a total inner volume of 90 to 330 ml, when inflated by 0.2 psi. A system comprising the balloon catheter, and a pressure sensor for measuring a pressure of a fluid inside the balloon, and optionally a fluid pump for inflating and/or deflating the balloon, and a control unit for reading the pressure sensor and optionally for controlling the fluid pump.
(FR) L'invention concerne un cathéter à ballonnet(s) (100), approprié à la mise en place d'un ballonnet dans l'estomac en passant par le nez, le cathéter à ballonnet(s) comprenant un cathéter (2) et un ou plusieurs ballonnets gonflables (1) fixés à demeure au cathéter. Les ballonnets présentent un diamètre extérieur variant de 4 à 7 cm, sont constitués d'un matériau relativement dur (par exemple, d'une dureté de 70 à 100 Shore A), et ont une longueur efficace de 7 à 18 cm ou un volume interne total de 90 à 330 ml, lorsqu'ils sont gonflés à 0,2 psi. L'invention concerne également un système comprenant le cathéter à ballonnet(s), et un capteur de pression permettant de mesurer la pression d'un fluide à l'intérieur du ballonnet et, éventuellement, une pompe à fluide permettant de gonfler et/ou dégonfler le ballonnet, et une unité de commande permettant de lire le capteur de pression et, éventuellement, de commander la pompe à fluide.
