Limitations of Esophageal Temperature-Monitoring to ...

The LET was measured using a 9Fr flexible temperature probe (with a single thermocouple) in the esophagus. The temperature probe was maneuvered in cranial-caudal direction to position the thermocouple close to the ablation catheter tip in the left atrium. We agree in principal with the authors’ conclusion that esophageal temperature-monitoring may reduce the risk of esophageal injury during ...

(PDF) Esophageal temperature monitoring during ...

A thermocouple was located on the probe to measure the actual temperature of the external esophageal layer during the ablations (55 °C, 60 s). The mean temperatures reached at the thermocouple were significantly higher than those measured by the ETP ( ± °C versus ± °C). The temperature values measured with the ETP were significantly lower when the probe was …

2005-09-01· The subjects were equipped with a heart rate monitor and esophageal thermocouple probe. The slope of the treadmill for the experimental trials was set at 60–65% of the slope at which the subject reached 90% of his/her estimated maximum heart rate. The trials consisted of the subjects walking on the treadmill at km/h at their predetermined slope. Each subject participated in two ...

Techniques for Temperature Monitoring of Myocardial Tissue ...

2021-02-19· The esophageal probe measured lower temperature peaks than thermocouple ( ± °C vs. ± °C), with minimum values for the greater distances from the RF antenna (, 20 mm). Such temperature underestimation was probably the result of both the high value of τ P compared to τ T and the bigger distance of the thermistor from the emitting source compared to that of the ...

Temperature Measurement - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Esophageal temperature probes are often combined with esophageal stethoscopes, making the esophagus a particularly appealing site to monitor temperature in children. However, the thin tissue planes between the trachea and the esophagus in infants, children, or cachectic adult patients affords limited thermal insulation between the tracheobronchial tree and the esophagus. Consequently, the ...

Incidences of esophageal injury during esophageal ...

Esophageal lesions, such as esophagitis and esophageal ulcers, occurred in 10/50 (20 %) and 15/50 (30 %) patients in the multi-thermocouple and deflectable temperature probe groups, respectively (P = ). Most lesions were mild to moderate injuries, and all were cured using conservative treatment. CONCLUSION: The incidence of esophageal injury was almost equal between the multi-thermocouple ...
