  • Clinical Evaluation of an Automatic Oxygen Control System for Premature
           Infants Receiving High-Flow Nasal Cannula for Respiratory Support: A Pilot
           Study

      Abstract: A pilot clinical study was conducted that compared the peripheral oxygen saturation (SpO2) targeting performance of an automatic oxygen control system with manual oxygen control, which is the standard of care for preterm and low birth weight infants on high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC). The new oxygen control device studied was used to automatically adjust the fraction of inspired oxygen (FiO2) according to a desired SpO2 target setpoint and measured feedback signals including the SpO2 and other signals. A crossover study was designed with several endpoints including the comparison of the percentage of time that the SpO2 was within the target range with the automatic oxygen control device versus manual oxygen control. Other metrics were also compared to assess the performance of the system including the number of bradycardia events. The pilot study included six patients that fit the inclusion criteria. The results showed that there were improvements in all of the measured outcomes considered including statistically significant improvements in the number of bradycardia events during the period when the automatic oxygen control device was used.

  • Study on Device System to Reduce Tracheal Mucosal Injury in Intubation
           Patients

      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to develop an automatic bronchial aspiration system to minimize tracheal mucosal damage in ventilator patients. Operation performances of the system's suction pressure, bronchial intubation depth, suction cycle, and tube cuff pressure were tested. To check the clinical results, subjects underwent endoscopy after applying the previous manual method for 24 h. After that, they underwent endoscopy after applying the proposed suction system for 24 h. For quantitative evaluation of test results, the tracheal mucosal injury was divided into the following five grades: grade 0 = normal, grade 1 = erythema or edema, grade 2 = erosion, grade 3 = hemorrhage, and grade 4 = ulcer or necrosis. In the performance test, an error of up to 12 mmHg occurred within the normal operation error range for suction pressure control. The insertion depth control had a maximum error of 7.0 mm within the normal operation error range. On the other hand, there was no error in the time control or the tube cuff pressure control. In the clinical trial, after using the proposed system for five subjects to find changes in tracheal mucosal injury by endoscopy, reduced injury or no change in injury was found. The system proposed in this study is confirmed to be able to remove the sputum while minimizing tracheal mucosal injury that can occur while using the previous manual suction device.

  • A Continuum Over Tube With Variable Stiffness for Transrectal NOTES

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Li J; Zhang L, Xing Y, et al.
      First page: 031007
      Abstract: The continuum over tube applied to natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery (NOTES) should be flexible during insertion and provide sufficient stiffness upon arrival at the lesion. In order to satisfy these two properties, a variable stiffness continuum over tube was proposed. The over tube realizes stiffness variation through the heating and cooling of filling materials. Polyethylene glycol, cocoa butter, and gallium metal are selected as filling materials. Several experiments were designed to test its rigid and response characteristic, and suitable material was selected. The risk management test was carried out, and the frequency and risk level of the risk point were recorded. According to experimental data, the polyethylene glycol and gallium show better variable stiffness performance, with the 20 times stiffness variation range, and polyethylene glycol was selected as suitable materials for its low cost and nontoxic characteristic. The average heating time and cooling time of polyethylene glycol-filled over tube are 52.3 s and 36 s, respectively. Moreover, three kinds of high-frequency risk points including smoke, thread ejection, and uneven distribution of the material were found, and corresponding design improvement and use principle are proposed. The proposed continuum over tube can satisfy the requirement of colorectal NOTES for flexibility and stiffness of instruments, and the safety of the instrument can be improved by controlling high-frequency risk points with relevant methods.

  • Design Synthesis of a Robotic Uniaxial Torque Device for Orthopedic Haptic
           Simulation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Cotter T; Mongrain R, Driscoll M.
      First page: 031008
      Abstract: Robotic devices are commonly used in surgical simulators to provide tactile, or haptic, feedback. They can provide customized feedback that can be rapidly modified with minimal hardware changes in comparison to nonrobotic systems. This work describes the design, development, and evaluation of one such tool: a novel uniaxial torque haptic device for a surgical training simulator. The objective of the work was to design a single connection haptic device that could augment an existing six degree-of-freedom haptic device to mimic a Concorde Clear vacuum curette. Design and evaluations focused on the tool's ability to deliver adequate torque, imitate a surgical tool, and be integrated into the haptic device. Twenty-nine surgeons tested the tool in the simulator and evaluated it via a questionnaire. The device was found to deliver the 800 N⋅mm of torque necessary to mimic an orthopedic procedure. Surgeons found it accurately imitated surgical tools physical appearance and maneuverability, scoring them 3.9 ± 1.0 and 3.3 ± 1.2, respectively, on a 1–5 Likert scale. By virtue of the functionality necessary for testing and evaluation, the device could be connected to the haptic device for mechanical and electrical engagement. This device is a step forward in the field of augmentable haptic devices for surgical simulation. By changing the number of robotically controlled degrees-of-freedom of a haptic device, existing devices can be tuned to meet the demands of a particular simulator, which has the potential to improve surgeon training standards.
