Abstract

Method and apparatus for inserting at least a portion of a sensor into a patient is provided.

Description

    BACKGROUND
  • Analyte monitoring systems generally include a sensor such as a subcutaneous analyte sensor, at least a portion of which is inserted under the skin for fluid contact with interstitial fluid, for detecting analyte levels such as glucose levels, a transmitter (such as an RF transmitter) in communication with the sensor and configured to receive the sensor signals and to transmit them to a corresponding receiver unit by for example, using RF data transmission protocol. The receiver may be operatively coupled to a glucose monitor that performs glucose related calculations and data analysis.
  • The transmitter is in signal communication with the sensor. Generally, the sensor is configured to detect and measure the glucose levels of the patient over a predetermined period of time, and the transmitter is configured to transmit data corresponding to or associated with the measured glucose levels over the predetermined period of time for further analysis. To initially deploy the sensor so that the sensor contacts and electrodes are in fluid contact with the patient's analyte fluids, a separate deployment mechanism such as a sensor inserter or introducer is used. More specifically, the introducer includes a sharp needle shaped inserter that is configured to pierce through the skin of the patient and substantially concurrently guide the sensor through the patient's skin so as to place at least a portion of the sensor in fluid contact with the target biological fluid of the patient.
  • The inserter is typically used only during the sensor insertion process, and once the sensor is properly and accurately positioned, the inserter and the introducer are discarded. This requires a level of care as the inserter is sharp and may damage other parts of the patient's skin if not properly handled. Further, since the tip of the inserter has come into fluid contact with the patient's biological fluids, it is important to take particular precautions in the handling of the inserter.
  • Further, to minimize data errors in the continuous or semi-continuous monitoring system, it is important to properly insert the sensor through the patient's skin and securely retain the sensor during the time that the sensor is configured to detect analyte levels. Additionally, for the period of continuous or semi-continuous monitoring which can include, for example, 3 days, 5 days or 7 days, it is important to have the transmitter in proper signal contact with the analyte sensor so as to minimize the potential errors in the monitored data.
  • In view of the foregoing, it would be desirable to have method and apparatus for providing simple, easy to handle and accurate sensor introduction and retention mechanism for use in an analyte monitoring system. More specifically, it would be desirable to have method and apparatus that minimizes the number of components which the patient has to handle, and which also reduces the number of required steps to properly and accurately position the analyte sensor in fluid contact with the patient's analytes.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • In one embodiment, there is provided a method and apparatus for providing an a sensor introduction and retention mechanism for use in continuous or semi-continuous monitoring systems such as analyte monitoring systems which includes a sensor loaded insertion device which is configured to align and correspondingly mate with a base section disposed on the patient's skin (such as for example, a transmitter mount unit provided on an adhesive patch that is attached or otherwise fixedly positioned on the desired location on the patient's skin).
  • In one embodiment of the present invention, the base section is provided with a receiving structure that is configured to align with a corresponding section of the insertion device so as to accurately position the sensor relative to the patient's skin for proper insertion through the skin of the patient. In one aspect, the activation of the pre-loaded trigger mechanism by the patient displaces the sensor in the insertion device from the insertion device and places at least a portion of the sensor in fluid contact with the patient's analytes. Upon sensor deployment, the insertion device may be removed from the base section and discarded (in case of disposable insertion devices), while the base section may be configured to retain the sensor in proper position until the transmitter unit is mounted or coupled to the base section so as to be in signal contact with the deployed sensor.
  • These and other features and advantages of the present invention will be understood upon consideration of the following detailed description of the invention and the accompanying drawings.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • FIG. 1 illustrates a perspective view of the overall assembly for sensor insertion and positioning system in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention. Referring to FIG. 1, the sensor insertion and positioning system 100 in one embodiment of the present invention includes an insertion device comprising, for example, a plunger handle portion 101 and a plunger body portion 102, and coupled therewith an introducer such as a sharp or a needle (not shown) and a sensor (not shown). The insertion device further includes a sleeve portion 103 which is configured to mate with a receiving structure 104 disposed on an adhesive layer 105. The adhesive layer 105 is configured to be fixedly positioned on the skin of a patient, and further, where the receiving structure 104 in one embodiment is positioned on a predetermined position on the adhesive layer 105.
  • Referring to FIG. 1, in one embodiment of the present invention, the handle portion of the plunger 101, the body portion 102 of the plunger 102, the sensor and introducer provided substantially within the body portion 102 of the plunger and the sleeve 103 are provided as a single integrated insertion device for use by patients, for example. The adhesive layer 105 with the receiving structure 104 are further provided in one embodiment as a separate integrated device such that the patient may in one embodiment, position the adhesive layer 105 at a desired location on the patient's skin, with relative ease, and where the position of the receiving structure 104 disposed on the adhesive layer 105 substantially defines the position where the sensor is to be placed in the patient.
  • Referring again to FIG. 1, as discussed in further detail below, the receiving structure 104 in one embodiment of the present invention is configured to align the insertion device (for example, the sleeve portion 103 of the insertion device so as to accurately position the sensor and the sensor introducer prior to the insertion process. That is, the sleeve portion 103 of the insertion device is configured to substantially mate or securely latch with the receiving structure 104 such that, upon placement of a predefined length of the sleeve portion 103 in the receiving structure 104, the insertion device is securely positioned with the sensor and the introducer aligned for proper subcutaneous placement in the patient.
  • In this manner, in one embodiment of the present invention, the patient may easily and with relative simple process, accurately position the sensor for placement under the skin layer. Moreover, in one embodiment, the insertion device is configured to predefine the depth of insertion of the introducer and sensor. As discussed in further detail below, in one embodiment of the present invention, after positioning the sleeve portion 103 of the insertion device so as to be aligned with the receiving structure 104, the patient applies pressure upon the handle portion 101 of the insertion device which in turn displaces the body portion 102 of the insertion device (which also correspondingly moves the sensor and the introducer provided therein).
  • When the body portion 102 of the insertion device has traveled a predetermined distance in response to the applied pressure on the handle portion 101 of the insertion device, in one embodiment, the body portion 102 is configured to so that additional application of pressure on the handle portion 101 of the insertion device will not displace the body portion 102 (and thus the introducer and the sensor). Accordingly, in one embodiment, the patient may conveniently and accurately position the sensor to a desired and/or predetermined depth under the skin, and thus substantially remove significant variation in the sensor insertion depth.
  • Referring back to FIG. 1, in one embodiment of the present invention, when the patient removes the applied pressure on the handle portion 101 of the insertion device (for example, after fully driving the sensor and introducer to the predetermined depth under the skin layer), a retraction mechanism (not shown) within the insertion device may be configured to automatically withdraw the body portion 102 (as well as the introducer coupled to the body portion) of the insertion device such that the positioned sensor is retained in place while the introducer is removed from the patient. Referring yet again to FIG. 1, upon retraction of the introducer from the patient, the insertion device may be removed from the receiving structure 104 and discarded.
  • Referring yet again to FIG. 1, as discussed in further detail in conjunction with FIG. 5, upon removal of the insertion device, a transmitter unit may be positioned on the adhesive layer 105 such that the electrical contacts on the transmitter unit are in signal communication with the electrodes of the sensor, and where the sensor is in fluid communication with the patient's analytes.
  • Referring still again to FIG. 1, the insertion device may be provided with a spring loaded retraction mechanism with forward biasing, such that, when the patient applies pressure on the handle portion 101, the body portion (including the introducer and the sensor) are driven substantially towards the patient's skin to pierce the desired location on the skin so that the sensor and the introducer are placed at a predetermined depth under the skin layer. Thereafter, by simply removing the applied pressure on the handle portion 101 of the insertion device, the body portion 102 and the coupled introducer are removed or retracted.
  • In the manner described above, accordance with the various embodiments of the present invention, there are provided simple and easy to use mechanism to position the sensor or any other device accurately with minimal complication. Moreover, with the forward biasing mechanism in the insertion device for automatically retracting the introducer after sensor position, among other features, within the scope of the present invention, the patient may position the sensor and mount the transmitter unit using one hand. Moreover, the receiving structure 104 provided on the adhesive layer 105 in one embodiment provides simple insertion process without significant visual aid—that is, a patient is able to position the sensor by simply aligning the insertion device with the receiving structure 104 and drive the handle portion 102 of the insertion device to accurately position the sensor, remove the introducer, and subsequently couple the transmitter unit so as to be in signal communication with the sensor.
  • In addition, by reducing the number of components needed for sensor placement, within the scope of the present invention, other benefits such as reduction in material cost, weight, packaging, and associated handling and disposal may be achieved.
  • FIG. 2A illustrates a perspective view of the insertion device for use in the sensor insertion and positioning system in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention. Referring to FIG. 2A, in one embodiment of the present invention, the body portion 102 of the insertion device as shown is configured to slidably move relative to the sleeve portion to displace introducer 201 coupled to the body portion 102 of the insertion device.
  • FIG. 2B illustrates a perspective view of the plunger coupled with the sensor and sensor introducer of the insertion device shown in FIG. 2A in one embodiment of the present invention. Referring to FIG. 2B, it can be seen that the introducer 201 is positioned and aligned such that the sensor comprising the insertion section 202B, is configured to move with the movement of the introducer 201. In addition, as can be seen, in one embodiment, the contact section 202A of the sensor is positioned substantially within the body portion 102 of the insertion device.
  • Moreover, referring again to FIG. 2B, the contact section 202A of the sensor is provided with an engagement element 202C such as a hole which is configured to correspondingly mate with a retainer element (not shown) provided on the receiving structure 104. Accordingly, upon final positioning of the sensor, the engagement element 202C in one embodiment is configured to engage the retainer element so that the sensor may be substantially fixedly positioned to minimize potential error or undesirable displacement when the transmitter unit is mounted on the adhesive layer 105 to establish electrical contact with the sensor electrodes.
  • FIG. 2C illustrates a perspective view of the analyte sensor for use in the sensor insertion and positioning system in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention. As can be seen, in one embodiment, the sensor is provided with a contact section 202A which is substantially retained outside of the patient's body, while the insertion section 202B is configured to be substantially positioned under the skin layer of the patient so as to be in fluid contact with the patient's analytes for monitoring. The sensor electrodes are configured to be in signal communication with the corresponding contact points on the transmitter unit for each of the working, counter and reference electrode of the sensor. Moreover, the engagement element 202C as shown in FIG. 2C is configured to retain the sensor substantially in the inserted position upon deployment by, for example, engaging with the retainer element disposed on the receiving structure 104 (FIG. 1) on the adhesive layer 105.
  • While a circular engagement element 202C and a substantially circular contact section 202A of the sensor are shown in the Figures, within the scope of the present invention, the engagement element 202C and the contact section 202A of the sensor may comprise any other shapes.
  • FIG. 2D illustrates an adhesive patch with a receiving structure of the insertion and positioning system in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention. As shown in FIG. 2D, the receiving structure 104 is configured to receive the sleeve portion 103 of the insertion device so as to substantially fixedly retain the insertion device in position during the sensor placement and introducer removal process. For example, in one embodiment, the receiving structure 104 may be biased with a latch mechanism such that when the sleeve portion 103 of the insertion device is cooperatingly aligned and coupled to with the receiving structure 104, the receiving structure may be configured to fixedly retain the sleeve portion 103 of the insertion device with the pre-configured biasing force to retain the walls of the insertion device in position, and thereafter, to release the sleeve portion 103 of the insertion device when the patient pull the insertion device away from the receiving structure 104 after sensor deployment and introducer retraction.
  • FIG. 3A illustrates a side cross sectional view of the plunger movement during the sensor insertion process in the sensor insertion and positioning system in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention. In particular, referring to FIG. 3A, the retainer element 301 is shown. As can be seen from the Figure, as the sensor and the introducer 201 is driven through the skin layer of the patient, the engagement element 202C of the sensor contacts the retainer element 301. In one embodiment, the retainer element 301 is configured with a predefined groove or indentation substantially around the outer surface thereof, which is configured to retain the engagement element 202C in a substantially fixed position relative to the retainer element 301.
  • Referring back to FIG. 3A, while a tapered structure is shown in the Figure for the retainer element 301, within the scope of the present invention, the retainer element 301 may include, for example, a barb, a miniature rivet, a hook, a button snap, a combination thereof, or any other equivalent alternatives. Similarly, the sensor engagement element 202C within the scope of the present invention may include a hole of any shape. In addition, the sensor engagement element 202C may, within the scope of the present invention, include a button snap, a socket, a lock washer, a combination thereof, or any other equivalent shape or structure to correspondingly mate with retainer element 301.
  • FIG. 3B illustrates a side cross sectional view of the plunger substantially at the final position for placement of the sensor in the sensor insertion and positioning system in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention, while FIG. 3C illustrates a side cross sectional view of the plunger of the insertion device in retracted position during the insertion device removal process in the sensor insertion and positioning system in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention.
  • More specifically, in FIG. 3B, the patient has applied sufficient pressure on the handle portion 101 of the insertion device to position the sensor and the introducer 201 at the desired position under the skin layer, and in FIG. 3C, upon release of the applied pressure on the handle portion 101 of the insertion device, the body portion 102 of the insertion device is retracted while removing the introducer 201 with the retraction of the body portion 102 of the insertion device. As shown in FIG. 3C, when the introducer 201 is removed, the insertion section 202B of the sensor is retained in position under the skin layer.
  • FIG. 3D a cross sectional perspective view of the plunger of the insertion device in retracted position during the insertion device removal process shown in FIG. 3C in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention. Referring to FIG. 3D, it can be seen that the engagement element 202C of the sensor is coupled to the retainer element 301 so as to substantially fixedly position the sensor post insertion process.
  • FIG. 4A illustrates a side perspective view of the sensor positioned in the patient and the insertion device removed from the receiving structure, FIG. 4B illustrates a cross sectional perspective view of the sensor positioned and secured to the retaining pin on the adhesive patch as shown in FIG. 4A, and FIG. 4C illustrates a side cross sectional view of the sensor positioned and secured to the retaining pin on the adhesive patch shown in FIG. 4B in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention.
  • FIG. 5 illustrates a perspective view of the transmitter unit mounted on the adhesive patch for signal communication with the sensor in the sensor insertion and positioning system in accordance with one embodiment of the present invention. Referring to FIG. 5, transmitter unit 501 in one embodiment is configured to be coupled to the sensor so as to be in electrical contact with the sensor electrodes which are in fluid contact with the patient's analytes. Upon deployment, the transmitter unit 501 is configured in one embodiment to be securely positioned on the adhesive layer, and in signal communication with the sensor.
