The Pulmonx Corporation patent solves the following problem:
The present invention relates generally to medical procedures and equipment. Particularly, the present invention relates to methods and apparatus for endobronchial residual lung volume reduction by passive deflation hyperinflated parts with functional lung volume expansion as a result.
Our analysis of this patent is as follows:
Pulmonx Corporation’s patent US 8496006 B2 deals with Methods and devices for passive residual lung volume reduction and functional lung volume expansion.
The number one hyperinflated lungs chamber is reduced to bind to a distal end of the catheter to an airway lung feed chamber. Air passes from the pulmonary compartment by a passage in the catheter while the patient breathes. A one-way flow elements associated with catheter prevents air from entering the lungs compartment as the patient inhales. Over time, the pressure on the region surrounding the tumor compartment cause it to collapse as the number of air diminishes. Remaining number reduction effectively result in functional lung volume expansion. Optionally, the burning room to permanently sealed to prevent air from entering the lungs extent.
