Introducing the PathFree Septum Monitor, a cutting-edge monitor equipment that improves electro-surgical unit (ESU) and vital signs (VS) monitoring during surgeries. This device comprises a nasal clip that attaches to the patient’s nasal septum, a monitor detector that connects to the nasal clip via a wired or wireless connection, and an ESU that connects to the monitor detector via a wired or wireless connection.
In modern surgeries, electronic devices, such as the ESU, have become a routine equipment item to reduce blood loss and enable a more rapid recovery. However, monitoring vital signs can be vulnerable to unintentional interference from ESU and human activity by the patient or surgical staff. Moreover, concerns have been raised in the medical community regarding electronic medical records, medical research, and clinic quality management.
To address these concerns, the PathFree Septum Monitor was developed to provide accurate and reliable VS monitoring during surgical procedures. The nasal clip comprises two probes that are inserted into the patient’s nasal cavities, with the ends of the probes touching the surface of the nasal septum. At least one side of a probe includes either a temperature sensor or a part of a pulse oximeter (POx) sensor.
The ESU includes a generator, a handpiece, and a foot switch, with the on/off switch located on either the handpiece or the foot switch. An internal switch is also activated when the on/off switch is activated. The internal switch is configured to send an image or a signal from the generator to the monitor detector. The monitor detector displays the signal differently from any other information displayed on the monitor detector, using a differently colored waveform or screen background.
The PathFree Septum Monitor also includes a motion sensor that is placed on the patient’s chest and is connected to the ESU. This motion sensor is designed to detect outside interference during the surgical procedure. Additionally, a cuff shell can be placed over a sphygmomanometer cuff on the patient’s arm, with pressure sensors that detect any external pressure applied to the cuff shell. The cuff shell also includes a hardware extension to prevent any external pressure from being applied to the patient’s arm.
A scanner is also included in the PathFree Septum Monitor, which is configured to scan a medication label on a syringe. Using image recognition, the scanner measures the volume changes of the dosage in the syringe and calculates the dosage injected based on the measured volume changes. The scanner also includes a display device to show the dosage injected and a communication device that can transmit a signal related to the dosage injected or injection time to a user device.
In conclusion, the PathFree Septum Monitor is a sophisticated and innovative monitor equipment that overcomes the limitations and problems associated with VS monitoring during surgical procedures. It provides accurate and reliable monitoring that is critical for patient safety and well-being.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
Modern surgery relies heavily on electronic devices. In surgeries to cut, coagulate, dissect, fulgurate, ablate, and decrease tissue, the electro-surgical unit (ESU) has become a routine equipment item to reduce blood loss, which leads to more rapid recovery. However, the vital signs (VS) monitoring is vulnerable to unintentional interference from ESU and human activity by the patient or the surgical staff. Furthermore, concerns have been raised in the medical community regarding electric medical records and medical research, as well as clinic quality management.
For example, during new drug clinical research on surgical patients, copy-and-paste or record cloning can be done from standard guideline or protocols. A missed edit from “positive result” to “negative result” can have devastating effects on not only a patient’s record, but also on the patient’s treatment and the reports of medical researchers as well as quality control of the research. For example, during a clinical observation of a new drug administration during a surgery, on the monitor screen, a patient’s significant decline in blood pressure with arrhythmia after the physician administered the new drug about one minute later, at the same time the ESU was active or others, can support a management decision which can be made after the ESU is deactivated, which will obtain a reliable record for study and review.
Accordingly, there is a need for an improved surgical equipment and VS monitor that may overcome one or more of the abovementioned problems and/or limitations.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
This summary is provided to introduce a selection of concepts in a simplified form that are further described below in the Detailed Description. This summary is not intended to identify key features or essential features of the claimed subject matter. Nor is this summary intended to be used to limit the claimed subject matter’s scope.
According to some embodiments, the present disclosure relates to a monitor equipment. The monitor equipment comprising a nasal clip configured to clip onto nasal septum of a patient. Further, the monitor equipment comprising a monitor detector connected to the nasal clip through at least one of a wired and a wireless connection. The monitor detector may be a vital signs (VS) monitor. Further, the monitor equipment comprising an electro-surgical unit (ESU) connected to the monitor detector through at least one of a wired and a wireless connection.
Both the foregoing summary and the following detailed description provide examples and are explanatory only. Accordingly, the foregoing summary and the following detailed description should not be considered to be restrictive. Further, features or variations may be provided in addition to those set forth herein. For example, embodiments may be directed to various feature combinations and sub-combinations described in the detailed description.
Introducing a state-of-the-art medical device that comprises several components to help healthcare providers monitor their patients with greater accuracy and efficiency. The device consists of a nasal clip designed to clip onto the nasal septum of the patient, a monitor detector connected to the nasal clip through a wired or wireless connection, and an electro-surgical unit (ESU) also connected to the monitor detector via a wired or wireless connection.
The nasal clip features two probes that are inserted into the patient’s nasal cavities, with their ends touching the surface of the nasal septum to provide precise monitoring data. Additionally, at least one side of the probes includes either a temperature sensor or a pulse oximeter (POx) sensor to record relevant patient data accurately.
The ESU component comprises a generator, a handpiece, and a foot switch, with at least one of these elements featuring an on/off switch to control the device. Furthermore, the handpiece and foot switch include an internal switch that activates whenever the on/off switch is activated. This internal switch sends an image or signal from the generator to the monitor detector, which displays the information differently from other data on the device, utilizing different colored waveforms or screen backgrounds.
To further enhance the monitoring process, the device also includes a motion sensor placed on the patient’s chest to detect any outside interference. Moreover, there is a cuff shell placed over a sphygmomanometer cuff that includes pressure sensors to detect any external pressure applied to the cuff shell. The cuff shell also has a hardware extension to prevent any external pressure from being applied to the patient’s arm.
Finally, the device includes a scanner designed to scan medication labels on a syringe. The scanner uses image recognition technology to measure volume changes in the dosage and calculate the dosage injected based on the measured volume changes. The scanner includes a display device to show the dosage injected and a communication device that transmits a signal related to the dosage injected or injection time to a user device.
In conclusion, this medical device is a cutting-edge solution to improve patient monitoring and provide healthcare providers with more accurate and efficient tools.
