The unique Sleeve sensor offer 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 during rest and swallow - 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.
