Nasogastric rehydration system

Nasogastric Rehydration System

By: Paige Reinhardt, Pam Hitscherich, Jon Gabriel, Gaby Bravoco, Josh Min


Problem statement

Problem Statement

  • 2.2 million people die from dehydration each year

  • Dehydration is the second leading cause of death in children

  • In underdeveloped countries and disaster zones IV fluid is often not available or too expensive

  • Disease transmission from unsterilized needles is a major problem for those who do receive IV fluids

  • “Hardly feasible in large scale epidemics over wide and remote areas of underdeveloped countries” *

*Schultz, SG. "From a Pump Handle to Oral Rehydration Therapy: A Model of Translational Research." National Center for Biotechnology Information. U.S. National Library of Medicine, 31 Dec. 2007. Web. 05 Sept. 2012. <http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18057392>.


Solution

Solution

  • By 1975 it was discovered that sodium transport and glucose transport are coupled in the small intestine so that glucose accelerates absorption of solute and water.

  • A low-cost device will be developed to pump WHO rehydration fluid through a nasogastric tube to rehydrate the patient

  • Eliminates the need for sterility and expensive needles and fluids altogether

  • Intubation does not require a high level of training
