  • Publication number: 20190304601
    Abstract: Medical monitoring systems and methods for reducing the frequency of notifications of transient alarms are disclosed. A medical monitoring system can collect a signal representative of the physiological condition of a patient and can determine a physiological parameter using the collected signal. The medical monitoring system can detect an alarm condition for the physiological parameter. The medical monitoring system can then delay notification of the alarm condition until it persists for a predetermined alarm notification delay time.

  • Publication number: 20190274635
    Abstract: Automated critical congenital heart defect (“CCHD”) screening systems and processes are described. A caregiver may be guided to use a single or dual sensor pulse oximeter to obtain pre- and post-ductal blood oxygenation measurements. A delta of the measurements indicates the possible existence or nonexistence of a CCHD. Errors in the measurements are reduced by a configurable measurement confidence threshold based on, for example, a perfusion index. Measurement data may be stored and retrieved from a remote data processing center for repeated screenings.

  • Patent number: 10388120
    Abstract: A localized sound projection system can coordinate the sounds of speakers to simulate the placement of an auditory cue in a 3D space. The system can include a plurality of speakers configured to output auditory signals and a sound localization controller configured to control the plurality of speakers to coordinate the auditory signals to simulate an origination location of a patient alarm. The sound localization controller can determine adjusted auditory signals and control a plurality of speakers to output the plurality of adjusted auditory signals. A method for dynamically controlling speaker settings in a medical environment can include determining volume settings corresponding to a speaker, monitoring a level of ambient noise corresponding to a room of a patient, controlling the volume settings of the speaker to reduce or increase a sound level output of a speaker. A patient monitoring system can be configured to physically manipulate medical devices in response to audible commands.

  • Publication number: 20190239824
    Abstract: A patient movement detector can receive inputs from position sensors, a thermal imaging camera, a video camera, and/or triangulation data. Based on one or more of these inputs, the patient movement detector can perform one or more of the following: fall prevention detection, bedsore prevention analysis, patient location detection, and patient walk test scoring. The patient movement detector can, for example, output a fall warning alarm, a bedsore warning alarm, patient location information, and walk test scores.

  • 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.

  • 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: 10327713
    Abstract: A multi-parameter patient monitoring device rack can dock a plurality of patient monitor modules and can communicate with a separate display unit. A signal processing unit can be incorporated into the device rack. A graphics processing unit can be attached to the display unit. The device rack and the graphic display unit can have improved heat dissipation and drip-proof features. The multi-parameter patient monitoring device rack can provide interchangeability and versatility to a multi-parameter patient monitoring system by allowing use of different display units and monitoring of different combinations of parameters. A dual-use patient monitor module can have its own display unit configured for displaying one or more parameters when used as a stand-alone device, and can be docked into the device rack when a handle on the module is folded down.

  • Publication number: 20190117070
    Abstract: The present disclosure includes a host device that is part of a patient monitoring system. The host device can provide an improved, organized, uncluttered, and graphically-rich display that presents an integrated display of real-time patient data and alarms from multiple integrated or non-integrated devices, such as patient monitors, ventilators, anesthesia gas machines, or intravenous (IV) pumps. The host device may provide a supplementary display for the patient data collected by the multiple devices and present information, such as comprehensive real-time patient status, historical trends, or alarm indicators, in an organized manner for particular clinical scenarios. The one or more displays can be central to a care team for a patient, and the care team can together simultaneously view and act upon the information presented.

  • 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.
