  • Patent number: 9101271
    Abstract: A device for determining the body core temperature of a living being includes a first temperature sensor (15) for detecting the skin temperature T1, an insulator (11) for receiving the first temperature sensor (15), a second temperature sensor (17) in the insulator (11) for detecting a temperature T2 and a third temperature sensor (19), which is arranged opposite the first temperature sensor (15) at the insulator (11), for detecting a temperature T3 near the environment. Assuming a constant ratio of lateral heat fluxes ? at the insulator (11) between the temperature sensors (15, 17, 29), the body core temperature Tcore is determined by the relationship described by the formula T core = T 1 · [ 1 + k s k g ? ( 1 + 1 ? ) ] - T 2 · ( k s k g + k s + k t ? ? ? k g ) + T 3 · k t ? ? ? k g in which kg=heat transfer coefficient of the tissue and ks, kt=heat transfer coefficients of the insulator (11).

  • Patent number: 8997741
    Abstract: A respiration system feeds an anesthetic gas having, a density ?gas, with a Y-piece for connection to a patient, with a respiration circuit having an inspiration branch and an expiration branch, which extend away from the Y-piece. A first supply line from a branch in the expiration branch leads to an anesthetic gas discharge valve and a second supply line from the branch leads to a reservoir. A too high pressure, opposing expiration, cannot build up in the expiration branch and losses of anesthetic gas are kept to a minimum. A prestressing device exerts a prestressing force onto the valve body of the anesthetic gas discharge valve against the effect of gravity. The mass mvalve and the prestressing force determine a threshold pressure in the anesthetic gas discharge line that results in an opening of the anesthetic gas discharge valve.
