A Minimal-Risk, Multi-Center, Prospective, Clinical Trial to Evaluate the PrevisEA Device for Predicting Gastrointestinal Impairment.
PrevisEA is a noninvasive, disposable device that uses audio spectral analysis of sounds produced by the gastrointestinal tract to predict gastrointestinal impairment (GII). GII is most commonly associated with postoperative ileus (POI), but could be the result of other causes, such as early postoperative bowel obstruction. GII is defined as failure of successful early oral re-feeding in a subject undergoing major abdominal surgery. For subjects who are allowed to resume a diet during the first 24 hours after surgery, a failure to successfully orally re-feed a subject is defined as presentation with emesis, requiring a reversal of diet, or the placement of a nasogastric tube on first postoperative day or later.
