A Study Evaluate Aqueduct's Smart External Drain (SED)

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT03113799
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : April 14, 2017
Last Update Posted : January 31, 2019
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Aqueduct Critical Care

Brief Summary:

To evaluate the performance characteristics of the Smart External Drain (SED) compared with standard EVD drains in the hospital setting, specifically:

  • Number, type and duration of staff interactions.
  • Regulating and controlling ICP and CSF drainage.
  • Maintaining system control with patient movement.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hydrocephalus Hydrocephalus in Children Tumor, Brain Device: Smart External Drain - SED Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
In this two day clinical trial, subjects will be observed on Day 1 of study during their routine treatment and using their already existing EVD. On Day 2 of study; subjects will be switched to the Smart External Drain for monitoring and management of ICP and CSF

Arm Intervention/treatment
Single Arm study
Single Arm study In this study, the subject will act as their own control. On Day 1 of the two day study, the subject will be observed while treated on their standard EVD. On Day 2, the subject will be treated with the Smart External Drain (SED).
Device: Smart External Drain - SED
Subject will be treated on Day 2 with the SED. ICP and CSF volumes will be recorded at prespecified intervals while subject is stationary and while subject is engaged in protocol-driven directed movements.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Staff interactions [ Time Frame: Two Days ]
    Average number of staff interactions per patient with standard EVD compared to intervention, the Smart External Drain (SED)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Staff Time [ Time Frame: Two Days ]
    Total minutes spent by staff interacting with standard EVD compared to SED

  2. Safety [ Time Frame: Two Days ]
    Number of Participants with Adverse Events That Are Related to Treatment
