  • Publication number: 20200353159
    Abstract: A substance delivery device engages with a reservoir, and includes a pump that draws therapeutic substance from the reservoir into a pump chamber of the delivery device without changing the internal dimensions of the reservoir. The volume of the therapeutic substance within the pump chamber varies in response to changes in the internal dimensions of the pump chamber. An orientation sensor generates an output indicating an orientation of the delivery device with respect to gravity. Control circuitry drives the pump to: calculate a volume of the substance within the reservoir, draw the substance into the pump chamber in response to (i) the calculated volume, in combination with (ii) an output from the orientation sensor that the delivery device is in an orientation that allows the substance to be drawn from the reservoir, and deliver the substance from the pump chamber to the subject. Other applications are also described.

  • Publication number: 20200282138
    Abstract: An infusion pump includes inlet and outlet valves and a squeezing element configured to squeeze a fluid line coupled to the infusion pump. A method includes at least one round of valve operation check prior to initiation of a delivery session of fluid to a subject, and subsequently, after an intake phase and before a delivery phase of at least one infusion pump cycle, determining for the at least one pump cycle, an absolute amount of air in the fluid line. The valve operation check and the determining of the amount of air each include: (A) closing the inlet valve to confine a section of the fluid line between the inlet and outlet valves; (B) squeezing the confined section; (C) measuring the pressure within the confined section; and (D) subsequently, relieving the pressure in the confined section. Other applications are also described.

  • Patent number: 9674811
    Abstract: Disclosed is a medical device including a therapeutic component to provide one or more therapeutic functionalities during whilst in therapeutic mode, and may further enter into a device sleep mode (DSM), a transceiver configured to provide the medical device with wireless connectivity and which may further transition into a transceiver sleep mode (TSM) substantially concurrent with transition into DSM, the transceiver may intermittently transition between TSM and a scan mode, during which scan mode the transceiver may listen for a wireless packet addressed to the transceiver, and a localization module which may emit a discovery signal upon receipt of the wireless packet addressed to the transceiver.

  • Publication number: 20170080146
    Abstract: An intravenous pump system includes an intravenous pump having an air bubble detector, a separate air trap module and a patient line. The air trap module is connectable to a set interface upon which the pump can operate. The air trap module includes an air chamber capable of receiving fluids and air, a plurality of valves controlling the flow of the fluids and air, and an air vent. The patient line is connectable to the air trap module and to a patient. The air trap module includes an actuator to control the state of the valves to enable, at least during a venting mode, the pump to push air out of the air chamber via the vent without disconnecting the patient from the patient line.

  • Patent number: 8208300
    Abstract: In a nonvolatile memory (NVM) cell, an injector having one or more layers of material with a lower potential barrier for holes is disposed between a charge storage stack and a source of holes (the gate for top injection, the substrate for bottom injection), to facilitate hole tunneling from the source of holes into the charge-storage layer of the charge storage stack. The injector has a barrier potential for holes which is less than an insulating layer of the charge-storage stack which is oriented towards the source of holes. A multi-layer crested barrier injector may have layers of increasing potential barriers for holes from the source to the charge-storage layer. Methods of operating NVM cells are disclosed. The NVM cell may be NROM, SONOS, or other oxide-nitride technology NVM cells such as SANOS, MANOS, TANOS.
