  • Publication number: 20220004546
    Abstract: An entity tracking system and method for a computer network employs proactive data collection and enrichment driven by configurable rules and workflows responsive to the discovery of new entities, changes to existing entities, and specifics about the entities' attributes. The data collection is used in conjunction with graph technologies to map interactions and relationships between various entities interacting in the computer environment and deduce interactions and relationships between the entities. Machine learning techniques further identify, group or categorize entities and identify patterns which are indicative of anomalies that might be due to nefarious actions or compromised security.

  • Patent number: 11211191
    Abstract: This invention concerns a transformer radiator. The radiator includes an inlet manifold, an outlet manifold and a heat exchange fin. The find extends between and is connected to the inlet and outlet manifolds. The heat exchange fin defines at least one oil flow passage to convey transformer oil, which, in use, enters the radiator through the inlet manifold, to the outlet manifold. The heat exchange fin is further provided by a single component having a continuously undulating profile and the manifolds extend transversely to the turns of the undulating profile.

  • Publication number: 20210386951
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a nasal cannula is shaped to fit within a user's nares, where the nasal cannula includes at least one prong allowing high flow delivery of humidified gases and creates positive airway pressure in the patient's airway. The prongs have angled ends such that, in use, gases flowing through the prongs are directed to the user's nasal passages. The nasal cannula body is partially swivelling and preferably has a ball joint connector. In another embodiment the nasal cannula may have at least one flared end prong that preferably seals within a patient's nare.

  • Patent number: 11065406
    Abstract: An interface for positive pressure therapy includes a mask assembly, a headgear assembly and a connection port assembly. The mask assembly comprises a seal member that has an upper portion movably connected to an integrated lower portion, wherein the upper portion rolls during hinging movement of the upper portion relative to the lower portion. The headgear assembly allows connection to the mask assembly in a direction substantially normal to a direction of strap tension. The connection port assembly includes a swivel elbow with a valve member that controls flow through a port that opens toward the user.

  • Patent number: 11036561
    Abstract: Embodiments monitor statistics from groups of devices and generate an alarm upon detecting a utilization imbalance that is beyond a threshold. Particular balance statistics are periodically sampled, over a timeframe, for a group of devices configured to have balanced utilization. The devices are ranked at every data collection timestamp based on the gathered device statistics. The numbers of times each device appears within each rank over the timeframe are tallied. The device/rank summations are collectively used as a probability distribution representing the probability of each device being ranked at each of the rankings in the future. Based on this probability distribution, an entropy value that represents a summary of the imbalance of the group of devices over the timeframe is derived. An imbalance alert is generated when one or more entropy values for a group of devices shows an imbalanced utilization of the devices going beyond an identified imbalance threshold.

  • Patent number: 10966859
    Abstract: A force distribution apparatus and method are presented. Various embodiments of the disclosed apparatus include a plurality of layers configured and oriented to be deployed on a subject in a manner that disperses forces and lowers peak pressures experienced by the subject when resting on a surface, which tends to minimize risks of deformation and local ischemia. An innovative combination of novel construction methods and material selections produce an apparatus that possesses an inherent three-dimensional shape despite being built from essentially flat components, while also retaining an ability to effectively distribute forces and reduce pressures.
