    Abstract: An apparatus is disclosed for determining validity of a measured in-blood percentage of oxygenated hemoglobin. The apparatus has multiple pulse oximetry channels having at least three light sources of at least three distinct wavelengths, which are detected and converted to digital signals. The light sources are selectively activated, and two or more estimated in-blood percentages of oxygenated hemoglobin are calculated. It is determined whether a signal quality associated with the calculated in-blood percentages exceeds a predetermined accuracy threshold, and an associated validity indication is provided.

  • Patent number: 9350241
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a pair of NMOSFET switches connected in series, an output filter, a control circuit, a boot-strap capacitor and a disabling circuit. A high-side MOSFET switch is coupled to an input voltage. A low-side MOSFET switch is coupled to a ground. The high-side MOSFET switch and the low-side MOSFET switch have complementary duty cycles. The output filter is coupled to the NMOSFET switches to provide an output voltage. The boot-strap capacitor is coupled to the source of the high-side MOSFET switch. The voltage crossing the boot-trap capacitor is for making the gate voltage of the high-side MOSFET switch to be higher than the input voltage. The disabling circuit senses the voltage crossing the boot-strap capacitor, and generates a control signal to control the control circuit for continuously turning off the high-side MOSFET switch when the voltage crossing the boot-strap capacitor is less than a threshold voltage.
