Art Medical‘s sensor-embedded feeding and respiratory tubes provide continuous measurement of gastric reflux and, saliva. These secretions, currently measured manually in the ICU, can cause aspiration pneumonia and ventilator associated pneumonia, which can prolong hospital stays, or cause death. Urine output is also measured, in an attempt to prevent kidney failure.
The company’s digestive, respiratory, and urinary sensors gather data in real time, which is processed in the cloud, and sent to the medical team automatically for immediate treatment.
