  • Publication number: 20200196931
    Abstract: A venous access device includes a hub and a bifurcated cannula. The hub includes a bifurcated connecting arm, a blood sampling arm connected to the bifurcated connecting arm, a fluid transfer arm connected to the bifurcated connecting arm, a blood sampling channel and a fluid transfer channel. The blood sampling channel passes through the blood sampling arm and the bifurcated connecting arm. The fluid transfer channel passes through the fluid transfer arm and the bifurcated connecting arm. The bifurcated cannula is coupled to the bifurcated connecting arm and includes a blood sampling lumen having a blood sampling port, a fluid transfer lumen having a fluid transfer port, and a dividing member separating the blood sampling lumen from the fluid transfer lumen. The blood sampling port is 2 mm to 20 mm proximal from the fluid transfer port. The blood sampling channel is fluidly connected to the blood sampling lumen, and the fluid transfer channel is fluidly connected to the fluid transfer lumen.

  • Patent number: 10609149
    Abstract: Various implementations described herein are directed to technologies for capturing marine electronics data. An apparatus includes a processor and a memory having a plurality of executable instructions that are executed by the processor. The processor receives a first request to capture data. The processor generates a command in response to the first request. The processor sends the command across a network to one or more devices capable of responding to the command. The command may include at least timestamp data and a second request for each of the one or more devices to collect data that each of the one or more devices is configured to collect.

  • Publication number: 20180182507
    Abstract: A continuously transposed conductor (CTC) cable may include a plurality of electrically insulated strands arranged in two stacks with the plurality of strands successively transposed between the two stacks. Each strand may include a conductor and insulation formed at least partially around the conductor. Additionally, each strand may have a cross-sectional area that is less than approximately 0.0030 square inches. As a result, the CTC cable may be suitable for use in electrical devices relatively smaller than those associated with conventional CTC cables.

  • Patent number: 9302454
    Abstract: The present invention provides a multilayer film for forming medical solution pouches that help prevent or reduce the presence of bubbles or foam in the solution after heat sterilization. In particular, the present invention provides a multilayer film for forming medical solution pouches that are capable of passing the bubble test as set forth in the Chinese State Drug Package Container Material Standard No. YBB00112005. In particular, the present invention provides a multilayer film in which polyamide 612 or calcium stearate component has been incorporated as an anti-foaming agent. The presence of polyamide 612 or calcium stearate in one or more layers of the film helps prevent the formation of foam in the solution after heat sterilization.

  • Patent number: 8096956
    Abstract: A biopsy instrument comprises a cutting head having first and second co-operable jaws movable with respect to a support between open and closed states, and a jaw drive for moving one or both of the jaws into the closed state to take a biopsy sample in response to an actuating input from a user. The jaw drive is user-adjustable between first and second cutting modes differentiated by the response of the jaws to the actuating input. In the first cutting mode, both jaws may move equi-angularly with respect to the support between the open and closed states; in the second cutting mode, one jaw may remain stationary with respect to the support such that only the other jaw moves between the open and closed states.
