  • Patent number: 10842666
    Abstract: A portable heating/cooling device for clinical hypo/hyperthermia with cuffs especially designed for arterial cooling/heating for raising or lowering the body temperature of a patient is operable by battery power or a wide range of available external power, and is usable in the field or in medical transport where such external power sources are not available. The small size, weight, and robust nature of the device allows it to be transported with the patient without the need for additional conveying devices.

  • Patent number: 6478748
    Abstract: Disclosed is a medical telemetry system for collecting vital data, specifically body temperature, the system consisting of a plurality of measuring sensors 10 and a collecting device 30. Each sensor 10 is placed at a predetermined location of the patient's body and automatically detects the vital data value to be measured. Upon a measurement termination signal, which is preferably acoustical, the sensor can be removed from the measuring location and stored away. For a defined period of time, e.g. two hours, the sensor 10 remains in an active state in which it transmits the detected measured value upon request. The measured value along with an ID code and status signals, which relating for instance to the battery voltage, can be interrogated and stored by means of a collecting device 30. Upon expiry of the defined period of time, the measured value is cleared, and the sensor 10 is automatically reset to an energy-saving rest condition.

  • Patent number: 6351217
    Abstract: The invention relates to a clinical thermometer of a small design portable also by children, having a data memory 18 and an interface 21, by which both continually monitoring measurements and discontinued cyclic measurements as a maximum thermometer may be comfortably performed at locations which are medically established for measuring body temperature. Depending on the selected setting of the storage rate, the temperature of the measurement location is continuously monitored or cyclic individual measurements are taken. For changing the mode of operation, no extra keys or switches are necessary which would be difficult to place on a small, compact housing 14.
