  • Patent number: 10441010
    Abstract: A disposable medical gown (100) includes a body covering portion (101) and optionally one or more sleeves (107,108). The body covering portion (101) defines a head insertion aperture (104) between a frontal body covering portion (103) configured to cover a frontal body portion of a wearer and a rear portion (203) configured to cover at least parts of shoulder blades of the wearer. A torso opening (201) is disposed on a side of the rear portion (203) opposite the head insertion aperture (104), and extends distally from the rear portion (203). One or more perforations (202) extend across the rear portion (203) at least partially between the torso opening (202) and the head insertion aperture (104), and facilitate easy removal of the gown (100). A user removes the gown (100) by pulling the front portion (103), thereby tearing the perforations.

  • Patent number: 10441006
    Abstract: A non-inflating flexible warm air distribution manifold that attaches to the patient side of patient gown. This manifold is configured to receive warmed air the of the warm-air receiving orifice and to distribute the warm air over a wide area of the patient side of the gown. By one approach the manifold comprises a flexible baffle. This baffle can be disposed on the patient side of the gown office proximal (in fact, opposite) the warm-air receiving orifice. The baffle has two or more sides that are secured to the gown and two or more sides that are not secured to the gown. Warm air entering the gown through the warm-air receiving orifice can readily pass through the sides that are not secured to the gown while the warm air entering the gown is largely impeded from passing through the sides that are secured to the gown.

  • Patent number: 10413469
    Abstract: A patient positioner (100) includes a central portion (102) and a pair of shoulder restraints (105,106) extending distally away from a first side (107) of the central portion. Each shoulder restraint can terminate at an attachment area (108,109). Each attachment area can comprise fastener (114,115). Complementary fasteners (214,215) can be disposed on the central portion (102). The shoulder restraints can then be folded (116) about a patient's shoulders, with the fasteners attaching to the complementary fasteners. A plurality of securement straps (121,122,123,124,125,126) configured to attach the patient positioner to a procedure table (701) can extend distally from the second side (110) and the third side (111) of the central portion, respectively.

  • Patent number: 10405748
    Abstract: A device (901) is manufactured from a sheet layer (100) defining a plurality of panels (101,102,103). Each panel is connected to at least one other panel along a common edge (104). A perforation (105) extends along the common edge and defines a separation location allowing the each panel to be separated from adjoining panels when an applied force pulls each panel away from the adjoining panels. A score line (115) bisects each panel and is oriented orthogonally with the perforation. The score line allows a first portion (116) of each panel to fold about the score line to abut a second portion (117) of each panel. An adhesive (501), disposed along the first portion, retains the first portion to the second portion, as well as retains the filament between the first portion and the second portion.

  • Patent number: 10398522
    Abstract: A medical drape has at least one suction port disposed. By one approach the medical drape includes a fenestration and the suction port is disposed within the fenestration. By one approach the fenestrated area includes an incise film (which may itself be fenestrated if desired) and the suction port is disposed through that incise film. Suction applied to this suction port facilitates maintaining the incise film in place on the patient. This suction port can have a first end configured to attach to suction tubing. The medical drape can include a patient-side spacer and this spacer can comprise a compressible, resilient material that is substantially permeable to liquids. If desired, such a spacer can be disposed over a patient-side suction opening of the suction port.

  • Patent number: 10398807
    Abstract: A canister lid (100) for a canister (600) includes an annular perimeter (101) surrounding an interior portion (102). Rather than completely surrounding the interior portion, the annular perimeter is instead interrupted by a suction conduit (103) defined by a suction duct (104) separating a first lobe (105) and a second lobe (106). The suction duct (104) intersects the annular perimeter such that the first lobe is disposed interior of the annular perimeter while the second lobe is disposed exterior to the annular perimeter. The canister lid can further include one or more ports (110,111) extending from the interior portion.
