  • Publication number: 20200254224
    Abstract: The invention provides design, material, manufacturing method, and use alternatives for medical devices. An example medical device includes an elongate shaft having a distal region and a coil disposed along the distal region. The coil is formed from a winding member having a first filar region and a second filar region. The winding member has a first cross-sectional diameter along the first filar region, a second cross-sectional diameter different from the first cross-sectional diameter along the second filar region, a first centroid at a first position along the first filar region and a second centroid at a second position along the second filar region. The first centroid and the second centroid are axially-aligned.

  • Patent number: 10703656
    Abstract: A method for producing an ionized water product for coffee comprises the steps of introducing source water to an ionization system, passing the source water through one or more reaction vessels, wherein one or more ionic species are introduced into the source water, and combining products of one or more reaction vessels to produce the ionized water product having between about 10 ppm to about 40 ppm magnesium ions, about 10 ppm to about 40 ppm calcium ions, and about 40 ppm to about 90 ppm total of bicarbonate and carbonate ions.

  • Publication number: 20180235543
    Abstract: Pressure sensing guidewires and methods for making and using pressure sensing guidewires are disclosed. An example pressure sensing guidewire may include a tubular member having a proximal region and a housing region. A pressure sensor may be disposed within the housing region. A signal transmitting member may be coupled to the pressure sensor and extending proximally therefrom. A hydrophilic coating may be disposed along an inner surface of the housing region.

  • Publication number: 20150141868
    Abstract: This document provides medical device systems and methods for obtaining tissue samples. For example, this document provides medical device systems and methods for transbronchial needle biopsy tissue acquisition. In some cases, a needle biopsy system includes an actuator device, an outer needle with a lumen therethrough, and an inner needle at least partially disposed within the lumen. The outer needle can extend distally from the actuator device. A distal tip of the inner needle can be capable of being fully disposed within the lumen. The inner needle can extend distally from the actuator device. The actuator device can be configured to translate the outer needle proximally and distally. The actuator device can be configured to translate the inner needle proximally and distally independently of the outer needle.
