  • Patent number: 10350125
    Abstract: A system includes a patient support unit having an enclosed patient environment, a heating module, a skin temperature sensor module, an environmental sensor module, and a control system. The control system is configured to selectively operate the system in a pre-programmed weaning mode configured to gradually wean the patient from the warmed patient environment series of stepped air temperature decreases performed over a series of stepped time durations achieves a goal air temperature while maintaining a goal skin temperature within a weaning abort deviation.

  • Patent number: 9655801
    Abstract: Described herein is a system including a patient support unit having a patient environment, a heating module, a sensor module, and a control system. The control system is configured to selectively operate the system in a pre-programmed cooling mode configured to disable the heating module while monitoring patient-specific data of the patient using the sensor module. Related apparatus, systems, methods and/or articles are described.

  • Patent number: 9333141
    Abstract: A thermotherapy device (1) includes a basic housing (2) with walls (14) with a support for a patient and an especially transparent covering hood (3) for the basic housing (2), which covering hood can be moved between a closed position and an open position, so that the basic housing (2) is closed by the covering hood (3) in the closed position. A guide mechanism (4) is provided for mechanically guiding the motion of the covering hood (3) between the closed position and open position. A heater such as a convection heater with a blower heats the air and/or an air humidifier humidifies the air. The covering hood (3) is moved in a simple manner and access to the support for a patient is essentially not hindered by the covering hood (3) in the open position. The patient is kept warm essentially by a radiant heater when the covering hood (3) is opened and by the convection heater when the covering hood (3) is closed. The covering hood (3) may be irradiated by the radiant heater and protected from condensation.

  • Publication number: 20160113559
    Abstract: A blood oxygen graph (200) that specifies blood oxygen level ranges varying over a span of time is displayed within a graphical user interface. Data from at least one physiological sensor is received that includes a current blood oxygen level (230) of a patient and a time point (260) associated with the measurement. Using the received data, the current blood oxygen level for the patient overlaid on the blood oxygen graph at the time point is displayed in the graphical user interface. Related apparatus, systems, techniques, and articles are also described.
