Abstract


Excessive fluid accumulation in the lungs can lead to lung damage and even respiratory failure. Stanford University researchers have developed a novel method and device to prevent and treat acute pulmonary edema and volume overload. This device will enable direct, efficient drainage of the lymphatic vessels, minimizing risk to the kidney. The approach is quicker and less hazardous, likely resulting in fewer complications.

Stage of Research

A prototype has been developed.


Applications


  • Prevention and treatment of pulmonary edema and volume overload

Advantages


  • Non-pharmaceutical, device approach to treat pulmonary edema
  • Less renal damage and, in some cases, greater speed
  • Greater efficacy and fewer complications
