Devices and systems for navigation and positioning a central venous catheter within a patient. In an exemplary embodiment of a system of the present disclosure, the system comprises a first pole and a second pole, the first pole and the second pole configured to generate an electric field within a mammalian body sufficient to obtain a plurality of field measurements therein, and an elongated body configured for at least partial insertion into a blood vessel of the mammalian body and advancement through a vasculature, said advancement dependent upon the plurality of field measurements indicative of one or more locations of a portion of the elongated body within the vasculature. In at least one embodiment, the elongated body is configured as a stylet.


Devices and methods obtain and use endovascular electrograms in a number of clinical applications and settings. In one embodiment, methods for triggering analysis of an endovascular ECG waveform are based on the detection of a peak in a skin-based ECG waveform in order to determine a location of an indwelling medical device, such as a catheter. In another embodiment, the position of a catheter or other medical device within the vasculature can be determined by analysis of the energy profile of a detected P-wave. In yet other embodiments, magnetic connecting devices are used for establishing an operable connection through a sterile field.

Splitable-tip catheters are disclosed with bioresorbable adhesive to provide spatial separation of distal tip elements during use. The invention can be particularly useful in hemodialysis applications where it is desirable to separate blood extraction and return lumens. The adhesive facilitates insertion of the distal end of the catheter as an assembly, e.g., into a blood vessel using a single guidewire, while the bioresorbable nature of the adhesive allows the tip elements to separate in vivo.


A system comprises a first device and a second device. The first device comprises a receiver, a spectrum analyzer, a controller, an amplifier, a filter and a transmitter. The first device receives from at least one antenna a plurality of signals from different sources. The spectrum analyzer is coupled to the receiver and determines whether a downlink signal power from each of the sources to the system exceeds a predetermined threshold. The controller is coupled to the spectrum analyzer and generates a first indication indicating lowering gains of an amplifier on signals from at least one source with downlink signal power larger than the predetermined threshold. The amplifier is coupled to the controller and lowers gains of the amplifier according to the indication from the controller. The transmitter transmits the plurality of signals after adjustment to at least one second device distributed within a site.
