Executive Summary

To accurately predict which patients will develop ileus following colorectal surgery, Entac Medical Inc. has created a self-contained, non-invasive disposable device that attaches to the abdomen. The device features a sensor to record bowel sounds and a microchip with an algorithm designed to detect a specific audio signature that is highly correlated to the development of postop ileus.
