  • Patent number: 9168477
    Abstract: A filter element has a support grid structure with a first axial end and a second axial end. A filter medium surrounds annularly the support grid. The support grid has structural web members that are connected and form a hollow-cylindrical grid structure that surrounds a cylindrical interior. At least three of the structural web members or structural web sections connect to each other to define a through opening. A fluid flow is enabled in radial direction relative to a center axis of the hollow-cylindrical grid structure through the through openings. A first average opening cross-section of the through openings in a first region adjacent to a first axial end is greater than a second average opening cross-section of the through openings in a second region adjacent to the second axial end.

  • Publication number: 20140324463
    Abstract: A method includes: receiving, at a computing device, diabetes management data from a diabetes management device, wherein the diabetes management data does not include a blood glucose (bG) measurement; using the computing device, transmitting an indicator of an account and the diabetes management data to a diabetes management server. The method further includes, using the diabetes management server: creating a bG measurement entry for the account in a database, leaving empty a field of the bG measurement entry for a bG measurement in the bG measurement entry based on the diabetes management data not including a bG measurement; and storing the diabetes management data in one or more respective fields of the bG measurement entry. The method further includes, using the diabetes management server, generating a user interface for displaying data stored in the bG measurement entry and at least one other bG measurement entry associated with the account.
