  • Patent number: 9186232
    Abstract: Systems and methods for use in providing hyperbaric oxygen therapy (“HBOT”) sessions to veterinary patients includes providing HBOT chambers specifically adapted for use with veterinary patients. HBOT chambers are adapted with a rail mounted platform upon which one or more animals may be supported and confined within an enclosure during the application of HBOT. Viewing ports are provided at the appropriate level to allow the pets being treated to see out from their position within the chamber. The system is provided with a closed circuit video system including a plurality of chamber mounted cameras configured allow for remote monitoring of the animals within the chamber, and a room mounted camera configured to allow for remote monitoring of the chamber and surrounding environment. Remote central station monitoring allows for widespread deployment of hyperbaric chambers in accordance with a business method wherein revenue is generated on per-use and/or per-patient basis.

  • Patent number: 6904621
    Abstract: A portable urine collection device having a closed loop system that is easily usable by a human. The urine collection device includes a urine collection receptacle for receiving a fluid from a human. The urine collection receptacle may be coupled to a reservoir with a conduit. The reservoir may be a disposable plastic bag having markings for determining the amount of urine contained in the bag. The urine collection receptacle may have multiple configurations and may be configured to receive urine from a female or male human, or both. The urine collection device may also include a pump for pumping urine from the urine collection receptacle to the reservoir without components of the pump contacting the urine being pumped.
