Application of a minimized wearable device combined with SpO2 and ECG sensors to detect stenosis or occlusion of arteriovenous fistula/graft, progression of arteriosclerosis and arrhythmia

2018 7th International Symposium on Next Generation Electronics (ISNE), 2018

Stroke is a common disease in modern society, which is the occluded and/or hemorrhaging of the blood vessels in the brain, producing blood clots leading to brain dysfunctions. When faced with the risk of stroke, most people tend to measure their blood pressure first; however, aside from hypertension, vessel atherosclerosis and loss of elasticity are also the causes for blood ...

Miniaturized Instruments for the da Vinci Research Kit: Design and Implementation of Custom Continuum Tools

IEEE Robotics & Automation Magazine, 2017

The da Vinci Surgical System is a commercially available surgical robotics platform used to perform more than 450,000 surgeries annually, primarily for gynecological and urological procedures [1]. This technology enhances the surgeon's dexterity through the use of a multiarm robot with wristed instruments that enter a patient's body through small incisions. However, the size of existing instruments (5-8 mm in ...

  • Application of a minimized wearable device combined with SpO2 and ECG sensors to detect stenosis or occlusion of arteriovenous fistula/graft, progression of arteriosclerosis and arrhythmia

    Stroke is a common disease in modern society, which is the occluded and/or hemorrhaging of the blood vessels in the brain, producing blood clots leading to brain dysfunctions. When faced with the risk of stroke, most people tend to measure their blood pressure first; however, aside from hypertension, vessel atherosclerosis and loss of elasticity are also the causes for blood vessel stenosis and/or rupturing. Additionally, in dialysis patients, prolonged needle puncture will also decrease vessel elasticity, which leads to increased stenosis of hemodialysis access and ineffective hemodialysis. In this study, we proposed a method to integrate and analyze signals measured from SpO2 and ECG sensors to detect blood vessel elasticity and stenosis. Our proposed system has advantages in size and cost, is portable and allows patients to record real-time and long-term blood vessel health status. Our method is a non-invasive measurement of the physiological signals, which can rapidly analyze the stenosis of hemodialysis access, and to take long-term records. The data collected can be analyzed by physicians for precision medicine and preventative health.

  • Atmospheric Pressure Cold Plasma Application for Hospital Sterilization

    Summary form only given. Our Plasma Engineering Research Lab (PERL) has been developing a variety of non-thermal plasma discharges for a range of applications. One of our recent development is a portable table-top atmospheric pressure non-thermal air plasma system using a resistive barrier discharge configuration that has been designed and developed for bacterial decontamination and sterilization of a range of items in a very simple one- touch operation. In this work, we will present the results of inactivation efficacies of bacteria that causes hospital acquired infections (HAI). The portable table-top atmospheric pressure non-thermal air plasma system is designed to inactivate bacteria in medical instruments of varied surface texture such as metals, polymers and glasses. The portable table-top atmospheric pressure non-thermal air plasma system is designed to function at standard 50-60 Hz low frequency AC power input and in the ambient air. The core resistive barrier plasma setup used in this system is well characterized by our group. Ozone, and nitric oxides (NO) were observed to be the predominant long lived reactive species produced by the portable table-top atmospheric pressure non-thermal air plasma system. The results of the bacterial inactivation on variety of medical surfaces will be presented in detail.

  • Miniaturized Instruments for the da Vinci Research Kit: Design and Implementation of Custom Continuum Tools

    The da Vinci Surgical System is a commercially available surgical robotics platform used to perform more than 450,000 surgeries annually, primarily for gynecological and urological procedures [1]. This technology enhances the surgeon's dexterity through the use of a multiarm robot with wristed instruments that enter a patient's body through small incisions. However, the size of existing instruments (5-8 mm in shaft diameter) has prevented the adoption of the da Vinci system in areas such as neurosurgery, head and neck surgery, and pediatrics [2], [3]. These applications require high dexterity in small, confined workspaces, and, therefore, new miniaturized tools are needed [4].

  • Robust Stereo-Match Algorithm for Infrared Markers in Image-Guided Optical Tracking System

    The stereo-match to find the corresponding points in the left and right images from an optical tracking system is a crucial step in 3-D point reconstruction. Unfortunately, the presence of ghost markers remains an issue which is caused by indistinct correspondence when several markers are coplanar with two optical centers. Such ghost markers can lead to erroneous tracking of medical instruments and patients. Some methods have been proposed for this issue, but they are rarely applied in tracking systems. To address the issue, we propose a robust stereo-match method for combining the maximum silhouette reprojection consistency with the epipolar constraint into an objective function. For minimization of the objective function, we reconstruct a virtual sphere through optimal triangulation and construct the 3-D distance errors between the inverse projective rays of the marker contour and the reprojection contour on the virtual sphere surface. A contour-detecting method is proposed to obtain the accurate contours of marker blobs in images. Simulative and real experiments are performed to evaluate the performance of the proposed stereo- match method. We compare the proposed method with other methods performed on several real data sets which are acquired from a human phantom. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method is more robust and efficient in searching the correct correspondences of the markers.

  • A Breakthrough in Tumor Localization: Combining Tactile Sensing and Ultrasound to Improve Tumor Localization in Robotics-Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgery

    Robotics-assisted minimally invasive surgery (RAMIS) helps surgeons to avoid manually palpating organs to locate subsurface tumors. One solution has been to use ultrasound, but it is not always reliable. Tactile sensing, however, has the potential to augment ultrasound to improve tumor localization, but there are no existing RAMIS instruments that employ both modalities.
