Growth of NAVA Over the Years: Post 1

Ils disent que cela peut prendre jusqu'à 30 ans entre le moment où un produit est « inventé » pour le moment qu'il est disponible dans le commerce. Et puis, il y a acceptation par l’utilisateur et mise en œuvre généralisée et la continuité d’utilisation qui prend encore plus de temps.

Tableau II - Temps de l'invention à la commercialisation de certaines technologies:

Silicone Insuline Enregistrement magnétique
1899 - d'abord publié sur papier organo-silicium 1920 - premières idées pour l'extraction de l'insuline 1893 - enregistrement magnétique a été inventé
1930 - premières silicones pourraient être produits en laboratoire 1922 - premier patient humain a reçu l'insuline 1898 - enregistrement magnétique a été patened
1946 - General Electric a produit du commerce silicone 1933 - la production de l'approvisionnement en insuline journée complète en une seule injection 1937 - premier magnétophone a été produit

Funny enough, the rate of adopting new technologies (so-called “consumption”) in the fields of entertainment (cell phone, iPod) and comfort (air conditioning) are increasing tremendously since the 1900’s.

Things are different for the Medical Technology Industry, where liability, regulatory approval, and “evidence-based medicine” all play a role.

Physiological and clinical research also plays a large role in the adoption of new medical technologies.

PUBMED data results show that the number of articles published about Edi technology or NAVA was limited to our group + collaborators until 2007 when the FDA approved the technology for clinical use.

NAVA was approved for clinical use in February of 2007. Clearly the availability of the device to general users has increased the amount of science that is published. At the time of posting (Sept 2012), 23 scientific articles are published this year so far (original scientific papers, case repots and review articles). There are surely more to come. According to the trial registration website, 25 trials are currently underway.

Will we reach the 34-publication mark by the end of 2012? Stay tuned!

  1. I am so happy to have found this website as one of the best source of information about NAVA. We are using NAVA in our neonatal unit here in the UAE. I have seen how this wonderful technology works at the bedside even in the tiniest babies. The more i know about NAVA and the more I use it on my patients ( I’m a Respiratory Therapist), the more I am convinced it offers more benefits to patients than other conventional modes of ventilation.

      1. I will be attending this conference and some of my colleagues. Actually, I will be helping in the basic NAVA workshops on the 7th and 8th. I look forward to meeting you and Dr. Sinderby during the conference. It is a pleasure and honor to have the NAVA experts/ inventors come to the UAE. Thank you, Dr. Beck.
