  • Patent number: 8214156
    Abstract: Systems, methods and devices are provided for improving data management between implantable medical devices (IMDs) and external devices for the detection of volume overload and volume depletion conditions. Data acquired by the IMD is periodically communicated to the external device where a volume overload monitoring algorithm is operated to detect whether a volume overload condition is present in the patient by monitoring the acquired data at the external device at a first lower, non-real-time frequency rate. Upon detection of a volume overload condition, the external device issues an instruction to the IMD causing the IMD to initiate a volume depletion condition monitoring algorithm for detecting in real time whether a volume depletion condition is present in the patient.

  • Publication number: 20100243324
    Abstract: A system and method for communicating with a drill string is provided. The system may have an apparatus including a coupler, a frame and an actuator. The coupler may be operatively connectable to a surface system and a downhole system for communication therewith. The frame may be for supporting the coupler and may be operatively connectable to a handling system. The actuator may be for moving the frame with the coupler between an engaged position operatively connected to an uppermost drill pipe of the downhole system and a disengaged position a distance from the uppermost drill pipe whereby the coupler selectively establishes a communication link between the surface system and the downhole system.
