  • Patent number: 11147745
    Abstract: A system can automatically adjust flow rates/feeding regimen of a feeding pump feeding fluids/enteral nutrition to a patient. The system can, based upon a prescribed volume of nutrition or nutritional targets (such as and not limited to energy (calories), protein etc.) to be delivered and a prescribed delivery duration, adjust the pump flow rate/feeding regimen following unexpected delivery interruptions to achieve at or near to the prescribed total volume/nutritional targets to be delivered, despite the interruptions.

  • Patent number: 11132756
    Abstract: A method for registering an Internet of Things (IoT) device to an incident IoT ledger system is provided. A computer aided dispatch (CAD) device sends a first ledger request including an incident record to a distributed incident ledger operated by validation nodes. The CAD device receives a first ledger response indicating that the incident record was accepted and added into the incident ledger after being validated by the nodes. The CAD device then sends a second ledger request to an IoT distributed ledger operated by second validation nodes. The request includes a query to the IoT distributed ledger to find registered IoT devices for affiliating with the incident. The CAD device receives a second ledger response including information identifying registered IoT devices from the IoT distributed ledger. The CAD device then sends an affiliation invitation to an IoT device determined from the registered IoT devices identified in the second ledger response.

  • Publication number: 20210290038
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein provide various examples of displaying an endoscope video of an endoscope resolution on a display having a screen resolution lower than the endoscope resolution. In one aspect, a process of displaying the endoscope video on the display can begin by displaying a portion of the endoscope video having the same resolution as the screen resolution on the display. While displaying the portion of the endoscope video, the process detects a surgical tool present in an off-screen portion of the endoscope video not visible on the display, and therefore not visible to the user. The process further analyzes the off-screen portion of the endoscope video including the detected surgical tool. The process subsequently generates an alert when a risk of the detected surgical tool is identified.

  • Publication number: 20210283868
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for compacting objects onto tools. One embodiment is a method for compacting an object onto a rigid tool. The method includes placing an object onto a surface of a rigid tool, disposing an end effector over the object, spreading linkages of the end effector, causing a scroll of material between the linkages to be disposed atop the object while surrounding the object, and applying a negative pressure to the scroll that offsets air leaks between the scroll and the object, thereby forming a suction hold that compacts the object onto the rigid tool.

  • Publication number: 20210287152
    Abstract: A workflow project design system, method, and apparatus are disclosed. An example method includes creating a mapping between an executable version of an object-orientated process and an un-executable version of the object-orientated process. The method also includes transmitting the un-executable version of the object-orientated process and a toolset file to a client device for display in a web browser. The method further includes receiving from the client device a modify instruction to modify at least one of attributes or properties of the un-executable version of the object-orientated process and updating the executable version of the object-orientated process based on the modify instruction. Additionally, the method includes receiving an execution instruction to execute the workflow project, executing the updated executable version of the object-orientated process to generate a result of the workflow project, and transmitting to the client device the result for display within the user interface.

  • Patent number: 11102221
    Abstract: A corpus of documents (and other data objects) stored for an entity can be analyzed to determine one or more topics for each document. Elements of the documents can be analyzed to also assign a risk score. The types of topics and security elements, and the associated risk scores, can be learned and adapted over time using, for example, a topic model and random forest regressor. Activity with respect to the documents is monitored, and expected behavior for a user determined using a trained recurrent neural network. Ongoing user activity is processed to determine whether the activity excessively deviates from the expected user activity. The activity can also be compared against the activity of user peers to determine whether the activity is also anomalous among the user peer group. For anomalous activity, risk scores of the accessed documents can be analyzed to determine whether to generate an alert.

  • Publication number: 20210251531
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to systems and methods for processing, transmitting, and displaying data received from continuous analyte sensor, such as a glucose sensor. In some embodiments, the continuous analyte sensor system comprises a sensor electronics module that includes power saving features. One feature includes a low power measurement circuit that can be switched between a measurement mode and a low power mode, in which charging circuitry continues to apply power to electrodes of a sensor during the low power mode. In addition, the sensor electronics module can be switched between in a low power storage mode higher power operational mode via a switch. The switch can include a reed switch or optical switch, for example. A validation routine can also be implemented to ensure an interrupt signal sent from the switch is valid.

  • Publication number: 20210250230
    Abstract: Methods for configuring a self-organizing network (SON) of a cellular telecommunication network are disclosed. A first set of data comprised of substantially real-time data for one or more key performance indicators (KPIs) is collected. A characteristic profile of the KPIs is determined. An instruction is sent to an identifier associated with the selected adjustable antenna, indicative of a command to change an electromagnetic characteristic of the selected adjustable antenna. A second set of data for the KPIs is received, and an updated profile of the KPIs is determined. A statistical probability of a causal relationship between the updated profile and the change to the electromagnetic is determined based on a predetermined threshold. Identifiers for the adjustable antennas are updated or confirmed.

  • Patent number: 11080955
    Abstract: A device, system and method for controlling a passage barrier mechanism is provided. While failing to detect, via a biometric imaging system in communication with a passage barrier mechanism, unauthorized users in a first area of interest of the biometric imaging system, a device: maintains the passage barrier mechanism in a multiple entry state in which multiple users at a time authenticate, via the biometric imaging system, and enter therethrough. Responsive to detecting, via the biometric imaging system, an unauthorized user in the first area of interest, the device: transitions the passage barrier mechanism from the multiple entry state to a single entry state in which only a single user at a time authenticates, via the biometric imaging system, and enters therethrough; and changes a biometric authentication range of the biometric imaging system from the first area of interest to a smaller second area of interest.
