Project test

The White Wolves FLL Team have been working very hard on their project. They have enlisted the help of 2 very wonderful Cardiologists and a Cardiac nurse on there research. Can some of you please take the time to give them some feed back on the questions. They are doing it in Jeopardy form along with a cute commerical.

Thanks,
Kim

Re: Project test

I'm not sure exactly how to comment, but here goes.

Question 4 of Inventors doesn't have an answer.
I disagree that PTFE (Teflon) is used for a stenting balloon. PTFE does not have the ability to stretch. Instead nylon or PET is used (source)
The inventor of the stent has several answers I found. Palmaz invented the balloon-expandable stent (which isn't the same)

Re: Project test

Thanks for letting me know about not having the answer for Inventors. I will get that fixed before the night is over.

As far as the PFTE we worked with 2 Cardiologists and that is the answer they gave us. When we looked it up before the surgeons gave us the answer every child got the same answer.

I should have also given the bonus question. What material is used to make a bio degradable heart stent. Answer is Cornstarch. They are using this in England and a few other countries.

Re: Project test

Nice work and a good education interviewing medical personnel.

(PTFE) Polytetrafluoroethylene is misspelled

airborne rather than "air born"

pacemaker is one word

The first answer 5 needs to be numbered "5"

I think the wording between the two questions involving "heart stent" might be contradictory and confusing to some. The person who invented the heart stent and the person who invented the 1st heart stent not being the same.
Just a little rewording, for instance, Kamen invented a better heart stent.

They don't remove the balloon catheter after it expands the artery/stent, leaving the stent behind?
There's an arterial clog for you
The question coming immediately after the balloon question seems to imply the balloon stays behind as well as the stent.

P.S.
I believe PTFE is used as a coating on the stent itself, rather than the balloon that gets withdrawn afterwards.

Both Kamen and Palmaz happen to be inductees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame.

Re: Project test

I just love the way you flip over those white/black thingies. Great routine at the end (relatively long autonomous)

Re: Project test

This is a great idea. Well done and I am certain you have learned alot.

I would clarify the type of stent in your quiz. Also different manufactures use different materials.

There is a simulation of a stent going into a body and being assembled by one of our SolidWorks customers, Device Technologies. Play the video here http://www.solidworks.com/sw/success...tm?record=1702

I would also look at Boston Scientific's animations they are very well done and list some of the materials they use.

Marie

Re: Project test

Marie,
Thank you so much for the advice. I am going to have the kids check this out ASAP. The kids had their 1st competition yesterday and did really well. There is always room for improvement though.

We were so shocked what we discovered with the cornstarch stents. How weird but very interesting!!

Re: Project test

Glad I can help - funny, when I look over my career it has been in robotics, biomedical devices, cad. It's all about learning to solve a problem and helping someone out. Marie
