  • Patent number: 10695491
    Abstract: A computerized electro-mechanical drug delivery device configured to deliver at least one dose of two or more medicaments. The device comprises a control unit. An electro-mechanical drive unit is operably coupled to the control unit and a primary reservoir for a first medicament and a secondary reservoir for a fluid agent, e.g. a second medicament. An operator interface is in communication with the control unit. A single dispense assembly is configured for fluid communication with the primary and the secondary reservoir. Activation of the operator panel sets a first dose from the primary reservoir and based on the first dose and a therapeutic dose profile, the control unit is configured to determine a dose or range of the fluid agent. Alternatively, the control unit determines or calculates a dose or range of a third medicament. Further, a dispense interface for use with a drug delivery device is disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10694394
    Abstract: This disclosure describes techniques to facilitate a co-existence of overlapping spectrums within a base station node of a telecommunications network. More specifically, a spectrum sharing system is described that may employ static, semi-static, or dynamic techniques for spectrum re-framing of radio frames within a base station node. Spectrum re-framing may occur in a time domain, a frequency domain, or a combination of both. Further, the spectrum sharing system may determine the number of subframes of the first spectrum that are to be configured as MBSFN subframes based on the real-time network traffic and bandwidth allocation criteria. The bandwidth allocation criteria may include, but is not limited to, a regulatory requirement associated with a threshold bandwidth capacity for transmission of communications via a spectrum within the cell, or a service provider-imposed threshold bandwidth capacity on a cell that is intended to ensure a network efficiency of the base station node.

  • Publication number: 20200171302
    Abstract: Devices, systems, and methods for specializing, monitoring, and/or evaluating therapeutic nasal neuromodulation are disclosed herein. A targeted neuromodulation system configured in accordance with embodiments of the present technology can include, for example, an evaluation/modulation assembly at a distal portion of a shaft and including a plurality of electrodes. The electrodes are configured to emit stimulating energy at frequencies for identifying and locating target neural structures and detect the resultant bioelectric properties of the tissue. The system can also include a console that maps locations of the target neural structures. The evaluation/modulation assembly can then apply therapeutic neuromodulation energy in a highly tailored neuromodulation pattern based on the mapped locations of the target neural structures. Accordingly, the system provides therapeutic neuromodulation to highly specific target structures while avoiding non-target structures to reduce collateral effects.

  • Publication number: 20200164165
    Abstract: A carrier, apparatus and method for making an aerosol precursor liquid suitable for aerosolized delivery by a device such as an electronic cigarette. A carrier is fluid permeable and comprises a tobacco-derived medium for carrying a functional component, the medium being configured to release the functional component into a fluid to provide an aerosol precursor liquid infused with the functional component. A method for mixing an aerosol precursor liquid for aerosolized delivery of a functional component by an aerosol delivery device comprises bringing the tobacco-derived medium carrying the functional component into contact with fluid and allowing the fluid to saturate the medium to thereby cause the medium to release the functional component into said fluid to form an aerosol precursor liquid infused with the functional component. A receptacle comprising a chamber for the carrier is provided for mixing the aerosol precursor liquid. Example functional components include nicotine and nicotine salts.

  • Publication number: 20200170022
    Abstract: This disclosure describes techniques that enable a telecommunication network to share available bandwidth within a cell of a base station node between different air-interface technologies, such as Long-Term Evolution (LTE) and 5G-New Radio (5G-NR). The available bandwidth may be shared based on bandwidth allocation rules and an analysis of network traffic, in real-time. Moreover, a Spectrum Sharing Optimization (SSO) system is described that can generate optimization data for delivery to a base station node. The optimization data may include computer-executable instructions that dynamically make use of time-division (i.e. configuring MBSFN subframes) and frequency-division techniques (i.e. configuring BWPs) to share available bandwidth within the cell of the base station node.
