APDC Helps Fund Self-Monitoring Shunt

Tags: , ,

The Atlanta Pediatric Device Consortium (APDC) is helping fund the development of a shunt that can be monitored wirelessly. The goal of the design is to simplify the detection of shunt malfunctions while reducing the patient’s exposure to harmful side effects such as radiation from CAT scans to examine the shunt. The APDC is comprised of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Emory University, and Georgia Tech.
