CLINICAL CATHETERS WITH A SLEEVE AND
The unique Sleeve sensor offers two primary clinical
advantages. First, it enables a "Park & Record"
approach that is easier on you and on your patient. Second,
with Sleeve catheters it is possible to compare events in
the oesophageal body with sphincter activity - making
diagnosis considerably easier.
The Sleeve sensor is the only truly effective method for evaluating
sphincter function. By spanning the length of the sphincter,
the sleeve sensor is able to maintain contact to reliably
sense the maximal pressure at rest and swallowing - something
that is impossible with solid state sensors and sidehole catheters.
Sleeve catheters typically include six oesophageal body side-hole
sensors, one gastric sensor, a core channel for infusion or
guide-wire plus the unique Sleeve sensor.
