  • Patent number: 10366787
    Abstract: A method of reducing nuisance alarms for a physiological parameter at a specific care unit by determining an alarm threshold optimized for the care unit, the care unit including a plurality of patients being monitored for the physiological parameter. Measured physiological parameters for the plurality of patients is measured and provided to a threshold recommendation system. The threshold recommendation system determines a recommended parameter specific alarm threshold value calculated to reduce false alarms by determining how many alarms are generated at each of a range of threshold values and choosing a threshold value from the range of threshold values that reduces a number of false alarms without unacceptably increasing missed true alarms for said patient measurements.

  • Patent number: 10354504
    Abstract: A modular patient monitor provides a multipurpose, scalable solution for various patient monitoring applications. In an embodiment, a modular patient monitor utilizes multiple wavelength optical sensor and/or acoustic sensor technologies to provide blood constituent monitoring and acoustic respiration monitoring (ARM) at its core, including pulse oximetry parameters and additional blood parameter measurements such as carboxyhemoglobin (HbCO) and methemoglobin (HbMet). Expansion modules provide blood pressure BP, blood glucose, ECG, CO2, depth of sedation and cerebral oximetry to name a few. Aspects of the present disclosure also include a transport dock for providing enhanced portability and functionally to handheld monitors. In an embodiment, the transport dock provides one or more docking interfaces for placing monitoring components in communication with other monitoring components. In an embodiment, the transport dock attaches to the modular patient monitor.

  • Publication number: 20190200941
    Abstract: A patient monitoring system can have a display screen or portion thereof with graphic user interface for displaying indications of a patient's oxygen state. The indications can include the patient's SpO2, dissolved oxygen index, and/or an increasing or decreasing trend of dissolved oxygen index. The displays of oxygen state indications can be compact, and/or able to provide direct visual information to a user of various aspects of the patient's oxygen state. The display elements can be used to represent any other physiological parameters.

  • Patent number: 10325681
    Abstract: A method of reducing nuisance alarms from physiological parameter monitors by determining an alarm threshold adapted to a specific care unit, the patient care unit including a plurality of patients being monitored for the physiological parameter. The method includes analyzing physiological parameter measurements from the care unit to determine a number of alarm events indicated as a function of changing alarm criteria and providing an indication of a change in alarm threshold settings adapted to the care unit that reduces a plurality of false alarms without unacceptably increasing missed true alarms, the indication useable by a care provider facility to program alarm threshold settings in the patient care unit.

  • Publication number: 20190122763
    Abstract: Medical patient monitoring devices that have the capability of detecting the physical proximity of a clinician are disclosed. The medical patient monitoring devices may be configured to perform a first selected action when the presence of a clinician is detected in a first detection area, and to perform a second selected action when the presence of the clinician is detected in a second detection area. The medical patient monitoring devices may be configured to determine whether a clinician is present in a detection area based on the strength of a signal from a clinician token, and based on a signal strength adjustment value associated with the clinician token. When the presence of a clinician is detected in a detection area, the medical patient monitoring devices may be configured to perform a predetermined action that is determined from a remote database communicatively coupled thereto.

  • Publication number: 20180182484
    Abstract: A medical communication protocol translator can be configured to facilitate communication between medical devices that are programmed to communicate with different protocol formats. The medical communication protocol translator can receive an input message formatted according to a first protocol format from a first medical device and to output an output message formatted according to a second protocol format supported by a second medical device using a set of translation rules. For example, a medical communication protocol translator can receive an input message from a hospital information system formatted according to a first HL7 protocol format and output an output message formatted according to a second HL7 protocol format based on a comparison with the set of translation rules.

  • Publication number: 20180055430
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure provide a hypersaturation index for measuring a patient's absorption of oxygen in the blood stream after a patient has reached 100% oxygen saturation. This hypersaturation index provides an indication of the partial pressure of oxygen of a patient. In an embodiment of the present invention, a hypersaturation index is calculated based on the absorption ratio of two different wavelengths of energy at a measuring site. In an embodiment of the invention, a maximum hypersaturation index threshold is determined such that an alarm is triggered when the hypersaturation index reaches or exceeds the threshold. In another embodiment, an alarm is triggered when the hypersaturation index reaches or falls below its starting point when it was first calculated.

  • Patent number: 9749232
    Abstract: A medical network service can replace or supplement some or all of an expensive internally staffed clinical facility network with a cloud-based networking service. The medical network service in certain embodiments can provide networking services via software as a service technologies, platform as a service technologies, and/or infrastructure as a service technologies. The medical network service can provide these services to large existing clinical facilities such as metropolitan hospitals as well as to smaller clinical facilities such as specialized surgical centers. The medical network service can replace and/or supplement existing IT networks in hospitals and other clinical facilities and can therefore reduce costs and increase security and reliability of those networks. In addition, the medical network service can provide synergistic benefits that can improve patient outcomes and patient care.
