  • Patent number: 6675062
    Abstract: A log of printed products having thereon an identification that is programmable and then readable to access information regarding the printed products that make up the log such as product identification, orientation and destination. The printed products include either bound or non-bound printed products. A method of utilizing a smart log includes creating a log of printed products, programming an identification associated with the log with information relating to the printed products, coupling the identification to the log, transporting the log to a destination for processing, reading the identification while the identification is coupled to the log, and handling the log in response to the information read from the identification.

  • Publication number: 20030225324
    Abstract: The invention provides a device for contacting a surface of a tissue within a patient's body to determine a physiologic parameter of the patient. The device typically comprises a sensor responsive to the physiologic parameter and a probe housing the sensor. The probe is constructed to allow the sensor to be secured at a sensing area adjacent to a surface of a patient's tissue, without need for an adhesive and without disturbing the blood flow within the measurement region of the tissue. The device may also include a means for reducing interference in the sensing area. Preferably, the device further comprises an indicating means operably connected to the sensor for indicating an analyte quantity and/or concentration associated with the physiologic parameter. The invention also provides a method for determining a physiologic of a patient.

  • Publication number: 20030045835
    Abstract: Safe and convenient methods and devices for inexpensively and rapidly treating pseudoaneurysms and other subcutaneous pools of blood utilize an apparatus with an applicator that can be grasped by a user at its proximal end and which has a distal portion that can be percutaneously inserted into a pseudoaneurysm. The distal portion has at least one retaining structure on at least one surface; the retaining structure(s) serve to collectively retain a clotting agent as the distal portion is inserted into the pseudoaneurysm. The clotting agent in the retaining structure(s) is exposed to blood in the pseudoaneurysm and initiates a clotting cascade. Since the clotting agent is in the retaining structure(s) and is not forcibly injected into the blood, the clotting cascade causes blood to clot at or near the surface of the applicator. The clot is associated with the applicator until the distal portion of the applicator is removed from the pseudoaneurysm.
