American Society of Anesthesiology Annual Meeting Chosen for World Debut of …

SAN DIEGO–(EON: Enhanced Online News)–Conquering the last frontier for monitoring vital signs, Brain
Tunnelgenix Technologies Corp.
™ (btt™ Corp.) is introducing the
Abreu btt™ 700 System for continuous temperature monitoring at the
Annual Meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) today.
The Abreu btt 700 System sensor is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration for placement on the skin and to be used during surgical
procedures, recovery room, intensive care and general patient
monitoring. The Abreu btt 700 System can be seen at the btt Corp. booth
(3815) at the ASA today through October 18.

“By
uniquely harnessing the best of biology to create the best of
technology, we will enable clinicians to escape their dependence on
invasive thermometry and surface measurements across thermal barriers.”

The Abreu btt 700 System is the world’s first continuous and noninvasive
device that measures temperature on the skin surface of the body with
the highest thermoconductivity, the fat-free skin that overlies the
Brain Temperature Tunnel (BTT), the groundbreaking discovery of a new
thermal organ in the body by Yale
researcher Dr. Marc Abreu
. Unlike blood pressure, heart rate,
respiration and oxygen saturation, up to now temperature was the only
vital sign that could not be noninvasively monitored in a continuous
fashion; temperature needed to be measured and recorded manually by
nursing staff or invasively by doctors using catheters during surgery.

“We are very excited that medical professionals and researchers will now
have access to the first product in history that enables temperature to
be continuously monitored on the only truly thermoconductive skin in the
body,” said Rick Foreman, Chief Executive Officer of BTT Corp. “By
uniquely harnessing the best of biology to create the best of
technology, we will enable clinicians to escape their dependence on
invasive thermometry and surface measurements across thermal barriers.”

Problems with Current Thermometry

Since the invention of the thermometer 300 years ago, humans have
invaded multiple orifices and penetrated multiple sites in an attempt to
overcome the body’s thermal barriers to monitor temperature. Because the
body’s layer of fat provides insulation and prevents adequate thermal
emission, the skin surface, such as the forehead and axila, cannot
provide accurate thermal measurement. Forehead thermometers are
therefore forced to rely on artificial calculations, which can lead to
overestimation and underestimation. Ear canal thermometry also relies on
artificial estimations, and numerous reports, including reports by the
British Government, show the limitations and dangers of the errors
caused by ear thermometers.

In addition, rapid digital oral and rectal thermometers also frequently
rely on estimation techniques, leading to further inaccuracies.
Furthermore, oral thermometry requires at least a 30-minute wait after
food or liquid is consumed, otherwise the measurements will provide an
erroneous reading. The BTT site’s unique physiology is not affected by
fluid or food intake.

Body invasion is necessary to achieve continuous monitoring. Surgery has
relied on Foley for bladder measurements and esophageal catheters, whose
accuracy is affected by the function of the site. Bladder measurement is
dependent on urine production, and is therefore an unwise approach,
because surgical patients are volume depleted. This dependence on urine
production to measure temperature also leads to delays and inaccuracies
that can cause serious complications. In addition, infections invariably
occur in patients with urinary catheters.

All invasive procedures carry the risk of organ injury and can increase
health care costs due to medical interventions and longer hospital
stays. The Abreu btt 700 system instead relies upon continuous, noninvasive
temperature measurement that enables clinicians to eliminate these
problems in monitoring temperature during surgery.

Product Highlights

Made in the United States, the Abreu btt 700 System offers unsurpassed
quality and reliability. The system allows for the first time in history
full automation of patient monitoring with both wired and wireless
signal transmission, creating a new level for patient care and research.
A high-precision electronic instrument intended for sensing and
monitoring patient temperature, the Abreu btt 700 System has been
designed with multi-channel capabilities for continuously monitoring
other parameters including heart rate, blood pressure and oximetry.

This proprietary system, which is protected by issued and pending
patents in the U.S. and around the world, runs on a Windows-based
platform and is hosted in the ASUS Eee PC, the pioneer in the PC
industry for netbooks. The system combines full data storage
capabilities with sophisticated data analysis, including the ability to
combine data from multiple sensors for optimizing clinical decisions and
thereby improving patient care outcomes.

The Abreu btt 700 System includes a disposable “finger sensor” probe
(Abreu btt C1) that may be used for continuous temperature monitoring at
the Supero Medial Orbit (SMO) site during surgery, critical care and
recovery, while a special reusable pen-type probe (Abreu btt S1) is
available for spot-check readings of the SMO site.

About Brain Tunnelgenix Technologies

Based on the groundbreaking discovery by Yale
researcher Dr. Marc Abreu
of the Brain Temperature Tunnel, a new
thermal organ in the body, Brain Tunnelgenix Technologies Corp. (btt
Corp.) has developed revolutionary technology that promises to transform
human temperature measurement. Offering the first advance in modern
thermometry in 300 years, btt Corp. now makes it possible for human
brain and core temperature to be continuously and noninvasively
monitored, the same as other vital signs — heart rate, blood pressure
and respiratory rate. The company’s technologies are protected by a
worldwide, multi-million dollar investment in patents, with more than 60
patents and patent applications in the U.S. and in more than 40 other
countries, representing 85% of the world’s purchasing power. www.braintunnelgenix.com
