  • Patent number: 10847268
    Abstract: Systems and associated methods for offline data transfer using exclusive point-to-point data communication between a transference device and a reception device. The transference device comprises an outputting subsystem configured to maintain a patient-specific chain-of-care data packet comprising patient-related identification data, health data, and sensor communication data. The transference device encodes the chain-of-care data packet in a machine-readable form (e.g, matrix barcode, haptic pulse, audio signal) that is detected by an appropriate component of the proximately-positioned reception device (e.g., camera, accelerometer, microphone) and decoded to create a cloned chain-of-care packet and to reestablish sensor communication for the subject patient through the reception device.

  • Publication number: 20200359920
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for measuring pressure in a patient are provided which may include any number of features. One feature is a pressure measurement system comprising a pressure source, a compliant bladder, a catheter in communication with the pressure source, pressure sensors, and a controller configured to determine a pressure within the compliant bladder. The pressure measurement system can inflate the compliant bladder with gas or air to determine a pressure within a patient. In one embodiment, the pressure measurement system measures pressure within a peritoneal cavity.

  • Publication number: 20190239786
    Abstract: A waterproof pulse oximeter sensor assembly configured to monitor vitals of a swimmer including a pulse oximeter sensor configured to evaluate conditions in a finger or a wrist of a swimmer and generate a pulse-ox signal in response thereto. A waterproof electronics compartment includes electronics configured to electrically receive the pulse-ox signal from the pulse oximeter sensor, and determine a heartbeat rate and/or a blood oxygen saturation level from the pulse-ox signal. The electronics generate an output signal that is based on the determined heartbeat rate and/or blood oxygen saturation level. An indicator proximate the electronics compartment is configured to receive the output signal and display an indication. A power source supplies electric power to the pulse oximeter sensor, electronics, and the indicator. The power source is recharged during use of the waterproof pulse oximeter sensor assembly by the swimmer.

  • Publication number: 20190151144
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for the treatment of a body cavity or lumen are described where a heated fluid and/or gas may be introduced through a catheter and into treatment area within the body contained between one or more inflatable/expandable members. The catheter may also have optional pressure and temperature sensing elements which may allow for control of the pressure and temperature within the treatment zone and also prevent the pressure from exceeding a pressure of the inflatable/expandable members to thereby contain the treatment area between these inflatable/expandable members. Optionally, a chilled, room temperature, or warmed fluid such as water may then be used to rapidly terminate the treatment session.
