Further, the catheter includes a sealed sensor attached to the input lug and is able to send information signals. The sensor and the catheter body is hermetically isolated from each other. In the insertion tip of the catheter body is built of the local power supply/reception of information (PDDR) for wireless emission signal, which powers the sensor and for receiving information signals from the sensor.
Also disclosed a method of assembling a new catheter. The method includes providing the housing of the catheter, which has the handle and the insertion tip for insertion into the patient. Local power supply/reception of information (PDDR), which should be embedded in the insertion tip of the catheter body, made with the option of the wireless excitation signal, which powers the sensor, which should accede to the insertion tip, and the wireless reception of the information signal from the sensor. The sensor, which should join the input tip is configured to wirelessly receive the emitted signal for zapisywania and wirelessly send information signal in the local block PDDR. The sensor and the catheter body is hermetically isolated from each other, and to the input tip is attached sealed sensor.
A new catheter is easier to manufacture and can be sterilized and reused.
In addition, the close proximity between the sensor and the local PDDR unit allows for efficient transfer of energy to power the sensor.
These and other aspects will be apparent from these embodiments.
Detailed description of the new catheter is described below with the aid of the following drawings, where like or similar elements in different drawings are denoted by the same numbers of positions:
1 is a diagram showing an illustrative first variant implementation of the catheter,
2 is a diagram showing an illustrative second variant implementation of the catheter,

figa and 4B depict illustrative ant is NY with a magnetic circuit, and
figa and 5B depict an illustrative electrostatic antenna.
Figure 1 shows a catheter 100 in the illustrative, but not limiting example. The catheter 100 includes a housing 110 of the catheter, with the handle 140 and the exhaust from the arm 140 input tip 170 for insertion into the patient. The insertion tip 170 includes a sensor 120, the tube or shell 150 and the local unit 180 power supply/reception of information (PDDR). The sensor 120 measures or takes the property of the patient (e.g., fluid flow, oxygen, pressure, location, etc) and is able to send information signal reflecting the measured or perceived property. The tube or sheath 150 surrounds the electrode 160, which represents one of the electrode array. The shell 150 is sufficiently long to be inserted through a vein of the patient and fed to achieve a body organ such as the heart. Accordingly, in figure 1 it is shown by the dashed line. Local unit 180 power supply/reception of information (PDDR) made with wireless messages with sensor 120, including a wireless signal is emitted, which supplies the sensor 120, and the wireless reception of information signals sent from the sensor 120. The remote unit 190 PDDR is located in the handle 140 to communicate with the local unit 180 PDDR. Wire, such as coaxia the capacity of the cable 195, shown connecting the remote unit 190 PDDR with the control system 130 of the sensor, although the cable may be replaced by a wireless connection.
It should be noted that the insertion tip 170, which includes a local unit 180 PDDR, have mainly during work fully in the body of the patient. The rest of the body 110 of the catheter remains outside of the patient. The close proximity between the local PDDR unit 180 and the sensor 120 leads to a more efficient transfer of power. Zapisywanie sensor 120 activates the sensor 120 to perform the reading and sending of the information signal, reflective reading, local PDDR unit 180. The sensor 120 may be a storage device for saving data to be read for use in the formation of the information signal. In the prior art well-known method of zapisywania passive repeater to allow the relay to return information signal. To avoid mutual interference, the signal power and/or data signals can be multiplexed by frequency division or time. For example, information signals may be in the range from 2 KHz to 10 KHz, whereas the signal power can be in the range from 20 KHz to 200 KHz. Multiplexing, whether temporary or frequency, may include the signal power and/or details rationae signals for multiple sensors, distributed in the array of electrodes. It is possible that the sensor 120 has been reported to the local unit 180 PDDR, using a magnetic field generated by the antenna with a magnetic circuit, in order to avoid mutual interference with electrical potentials in the heart, and because the transmitted energy has a large correlation with the frequency. For signal input power and for transmission of information signals in the sensor 120 has one antenna with magnetic circuit. However, in the framework of the invention it is possible to use a separate antenna for power and information, or separate antennas for input and output or information or power. In addition, the antenna(s) can be performed as electrostatic, and not in the form of a magnetic circuit.
Similarly, local PDDR unit 180 may be powered by the remote unit 190 PDDR, because the proximity of the blocks 180 and 190 makes effective transfer of energy. The remote unit 190 PDDR powered control electronics 130 of the sensor through the cable 195 or wireless manner. Thus, the remote unit 190 PDDR sends power to the local PDDR unit 180, and receives data from the local unit 180 PDDR. Frequency or temporal multiplexing can also be used to avoid mutual interference during communication between the local and remote units 180, 190 PDDR, respectively. Preferably, l is unique PDDR unit 180 communicates with a remote unit 190 PDDR by a magnetic field. Also preferably, each of the blocks 180, 190 had a single antenna for transmitting power and information.

It differs from the first variant of realization of the fact that the remote unit 190 PDDR is missing, and the local unit 280 PDDR extends cable 295. Mainly to control the array of electrodes need one wire or cable 295. The second variant implementation of the catheter 200 also includes a sensor 220 that is included or embedded in an integrated circuit (IC), which is discussed in more detail below on figb.
Possible to the sensor 220 was reported to the local unit 180 PDDR, using a magnetic field generated by the antenna with a magnetic circuit, in order to avoid mutual interference with electrical potentials in the heart, and because the transmitted energy has a large correlation with the frequency. For signal input power and for transmission of information signals has one antenna with magnetic circuit. However, in the framework of the invention it is possible to use a separate antenna for power and information, or a separate antenna for input and output or information or power. In addition, the antenna(s) can be performed as electrostatic, and not with a magnetic circuit. Thus, it is possible to integrate the antenna with magnetic to the round or electrostatic antenna in the IP scheme along with the sensor 220 and the corresponding antenna with magnetic circuit or electrostatic antenna in the local unit 180 PDDR for wireless messages.
