Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-15-269
Budget: 08/16/16 - 04/30/17

PROJECT SUMMARY/ABSTRACTThis Phase 1 SBIR proposal focuses on increasing ventilation safety for patients as theyrecover from surgery in the hospital while also reducing the work burden for clinicians. Theunderlying cause in 2 of every 3 unexpected hospital deaths is hypoventilation, a condition inwhich patients do not breathe enough. After surge...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-07-80
Budget: 04/15/08 - 10/14/09

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): After surgery patients are transferred to a post anesthesia care unit to fully recover from anesthesia. There is a much higher chance of an adverse clinical event occurring during this recovery time (24%) than in the operating room because patients are not as closely monitored. Airway obstruction is the most ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/15/05 - 03/14/06

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): When general anesthesia is administered, anesthetics in the form of vapors are delivered to a patient in 1% to 5% concentrations. Once the surgical procedure has been completed and anesthesia is no longer administered, blood carries the inhaled anesthetic from the brain to the lungs where it is exhaled fro...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/04 - 05/31/05

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this project is to develop and test display technology that will aid anesthesiologists in diagnosing and treating unexpected events. Unexpected events occur during 30% of all anesthesia cases. Thirty percent of these events have a significant impact on the patient's perioperative course. ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Utah

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 03-1
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

We plan to develop and refine a device (Basic Life Support System, BLSS) and a just-in-time training procedure for a flight crewmember who must administer cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). In Phase I, we developed a computerized graphical display for CPR procedures. Volunteers using the display removed an airway obstruction and stabilized th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 02-1
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

This project develops a display for visually representing physiologic data, to enhance a non-physician astronaut's ability to assess, comprehend and rapidly stabilize an injured crewmember's vital signs. With longer duration missions further from earth involving more dangerous activities, the need for more autonomous emergency medical care becom...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/01/00 - 01/31/01

Patients in intensive care often need to be mechanically ventilated for long periods of time. Mechanical ventilation is delivered through a cuffed tube placed in the trachea. As gas flows to and from the patient, the pressure drop across this tube causes extra work for the patient and causes distortion in lung pressure measurements. We have deve...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/99 - 03/31/01

DESCRIPTION (Adapted from applicant's abstract): This is a Phase II SBIR proposal to use a non steady state re-breathing CO2 technique for repetitive measurements of cardiac output in intubated patients during anesthesia and recovery. The fundamental assumption of the method is that when an additional dead...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/98 - 06/30/99

DESCRIPTION (Adapted from applicant's abstract): This is a Phase II SBIR proposal to use a non steady state re-breathing CO2 technique for repetitive measurements of cardiac output in intubated patients during anesthesia and recovery. The fundamental assumption of the method is that when an additional dead...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 05/01/97 - 10/31/97

The plan is to develop a new technique for epidural blockade using an objective measure. The current "loss of resistance" technique depends on subjective feel of the anesthesiologist. Misinterpretation of this feel can result in complications such as dural puncture and misplacement of the needle tip. The spinal...
