  • Patent number: 8320437
    Abstract: In a method and a device for decoding a signal, the signal is transmitted via at least one connecting line of a data transmission system, in a user of the data transmission system receiving the signal. It is provided to measure the interval of a change—provided compulsorily in a transmission protocol used in the data transmission system—of the signal from rising to falling or from falling to rising edge. A tendency for an asymmetrical delay of the signal can be ascertained from the measured interval. The sampling of the bits of the received signal can be improved as a function of the interval or of the asymmetrical delay, for example, by setting the sampling instant in variable fashion. Alternatively, the interval or the asymmetrical delay can be utilized for diagnostic purposes.

  • Patent number: 8317747
    Abstract: A combination dilatation and drug delivery device includes a flexible catheter, a drug delivery sheath mounted to a distal end region of the catheter and a dilatation balloon also mounted to the catheter and contained within a compartment formed by the sheath. The sheath is radially expandable by supplying a liquid therapeutic agent to the compartment under a moderate pressure. The dilatation balloon is expandable by providing a dilatation fluid to the balloon under a much higher pressure. The sheath can be formed of a highly elastic material or can be made quite thin, and in either case is mounted independently of the dilatation balloon. Thus when radially expanded, the sheath is moved into a conforming contact with surrounding vascular tissue. The conforming contact protects tissue and the therapeutic agent from exposure to blood, and more effectively confines the therapeutic agent to the intended treatment area.

  • Patent number: 8315654
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an extracorporeal blood treatment device comprising a treatment unit and a device for controlling the treatment unit for preparing and carrying out the blood treatment. The blood treatment device also comprises an internal communication unit for communicating with an external communication unit. In order to the prepare the device blood treatment, the patient sends an initiation code by means of an external communication unit to the internal communication device. Routines required for preparing the blood treatment are then started. One main advantage is that the patient, for example during home dialysis, does not need to be present when the device is preparing for dialysis and the dialysis preparation can be started when the patient thinks of returning home in time for the beginning of the preparation phase.
