  • Publication number: 20060076772
    Abstract: A medical disconnection guard 1 is disclosed comprising a plurality of fluid inlets 2 and a plurality of fluid outlets 3. The fluid inlets 2 are directly connected to the fluid outlets by fluid connectors 3a provided within a housing. In the event that an infusion line or monitoring line is accidentally pulled, the infusion line or monitoring line can come away from one side of the disconnection guard 1 whilst the patient remains connected to the disconnection guard 1 on the other side. The fluid inlets 2 and outlets 3 are preferably self-sealing.

  • Patent number: 5978855
    Abstract: Set-top terminals utilized in broadband broadcast networks are becoming increasingly intelligent (programmable). However, transmitting executable code, data and interactive audio/video materials through a selectively dedicated link requires an extensive, broadband point-to-point broadband network, which is prohibitively expensive to implement for large numbers of customers. The present invention provides for downloading application software and transmitting audio/video information through one channel of a digital broadcast network. The network also provides two-way, low-speed data communications capacity, e.g. for signaling and/or interactive text services. Signaling via data communication with a text server controls downloading of executable code from the digital broadcast channel into a programmable digital set-top terminal. Execution of the downloaded code in turn controls selective capture and presentation of audio and video segments received over one of the digital broadcast channels.
