  • Publication number: 20080021524
    Abstract: An external data processing device to interface with an ambulatory repeater and method thereof is presented. An external data processing device is interfaced in far field telemetric communication with an ambulatory repeater. The external data processing device receives sensitive information preencrypted prior to implant under a cryptographic key uniquely assigned to an implantable medical device over a secure connection from the ambulatory repeater. Physiological measures retrieved from the implantable medical device by the ambulatory repeater are received by the external data processing device over a non-secure connection.

  • Publication number: 20070288069
    Abstract: An ambulatory repeater for use in automated patient care is presented. A local memory store includes a cryptographic key, sensitive information, and physiological measures. The cryptographic key is uniquely assigned to the implantable medical device prior to implant of the implantable medical device into a patient. The sensitive information is preencrypted under the cryptographic key and physiological measures are measured by the implantable medical device. An authentication module is in receipt of the cryptographic key. A permissions module confirms authorization of an external data processing device against the cryptographic key. A decryption module decrypts the sensitive information with the cryptographic key into decrypted information. A processor is operatively coupled to the local memory store. A communications module exchanges the decrypted information and the physiological measures with the external data processing device over a wireless interface contingent upon the authorization confirmation.

  • Publication number: 20070106129
    Abstract: A patient management system includes a device, an interactive display, a repeater unit, and a host. The device assesses at least one dietary condition of a patient. The interactive display receives patient input related to the patient's dietary conditions and communicates dietary feedback to the patient. The system may also include at least one sensor configured to assess at least one dietary condition of the patient. The repeater unit collects information from the device, the interactive display and the sensors. The host communicates with the repeater through a network. The patient's own input of dietary information into the system can be useful for verifying sources of measured data and enhancing feedback given to the patient. The system is configured to perform accurately even in the absence of patient input or the input of incorrect information by the patient.
