Device detects poor blood flow to stomach
This article was originally published in Clinica
Dutch researchers are developing a device to detect gastrointestinal ischaemia using an ultrasensitive micro-sensor attached to the end of a catheter. The sensor, no bigger than the tip of a match, is designed to detect poor circulation in the stomach by measuring the partial pressure of carbon dioxide (CO2). The device is fed through the nasal passage into the stomach and remains there until the measurement has been complete.
