Resumen:
Un grupo de investigación de un hospital español ha desarrollado un dispositivo médico que evita la necesidad de desechar la primera sangre extraída del paciente y que permite la reinfusión del paciente después de la extracción. El riesgo de infección disminuye porque se reduce la manipulación de la válvula, que es el mayor riesgo de infección. Se buscan fabricantes de dispositivos médicos con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia.

Details

Tittle:
Valve system for lossless catheter blood extraction.
Summary:
A research group from a Spanish hospital has developed a medical device which prevents the need to discard the first amount of blood extracted from a patient and allows an easy re-infuse of the patient after the blood extraction. The research group is looking for license agreements from medical devices companies.
Description:
To patients in intensive care units it is common that blood samples have to be extracted in a regular manner.

In most cases patients of intensive care units have an intravenous catheter access in order to administer medications, serum infusion etc. When taking blood samples of the patients this intravenous access is commonly also used for the blood extraction.

However, a certain amount of blood has to be discarded prior to the extraction itself in order to get blood without the administered components (medication, serum infusion etc.) and to prevent that the blood which is then sent to the analysis laboratory presents any component that can alter the outcome of the analysis.

A research group from a Spanish hospital has developed a medical device which prevents the need to discard the first amount of blood extracted from a patient.

It is a valve system which has four connections and an inner rotating valve which solves this problem, providing several opening positions (see drawings) thus allowing an easy re-infuse of the patient after the blood extraction since the syringe does not have to be disconnected.
The device has been successfully tested on patients from the research groups hospital and the group is looking for license agreements from medical devices companies which are interested in bringing this product to the market.
Advantages and Innovations:
- minimize the blood drawn from the patient, reducing the possibility of anaemia in weak patients.

- it is not necessary to disconnect the syringe

- the blood valve allows an easy re-infuse of the patient after the blood extraction.

- the risk of infection is minimized since thanks to the valve the manipulation of the catheter, which is the mayor risk of infection , is minimized.
