Platform for detecting post-operative complications

Platform for detecting post-operative complications

NERv is developing biosensors that are embedded in wound drains and catheters to identify anastomotic leaks once they develop. The first device is an in-line device that augments existing wound drains to analyze peritoneal (abdominal) cavity fluid as it is extracted from inside the body. The second device is a "smart catheter" with the sensors embedded at the tip of the catheter and is placed within the abdominal cavity to monitor the patient continuously. The second system has been developed for surgeons who prefer to not use wound drains. Both however utilize the same sensing technology. Both systems can predict and notify the healthcare provider if early signs of a surgical leakage are detected by the sensors. NERv’s platform allows surgeons to detect leakages early, take the appropriate clinical response to help patients recover while avoiding the cascade of complications that arise from the late detection of the complication.
