  • Publication number: 20190343408
    Abstract: Devices, systems, and methods for monitoring patient hemodynamic status, systemic vascular resistance, reversal of cardiac and respiratory rates, and patient respiratory volume or effort are disclosed. A peripheral venous pressure is measured and used to detect levels, changes, or problems relating to patient blood volume. The peripheral venous pressure measurement is transformed from the time domain to the frequency domain for analysis. A heart rate frequency is identified, and harmonics of the heart rate frequency are detected and evaluated to determine, among other things, hypovolemia or hypervolemia, systemic vascular resistance, and of cardiac and respiratory rates, and patient respiratory volume or effort.

  • Publication number: 20190183362
    Abstract: Devices, systems, and methods for filtering medical device noise artifacts from circulatory waveform signals are disclosed. A circulatory pressure is measured and transformed from the time domain to the frequency domain for analysis to determine patient status. To avoid artifacts of the pumping, the time-domain measurements are filtered to generate a filtered time-domain signal, by removing active pumping periods. The filtered time-domain signal is transformed into a frequency-domain signal, which is analyzed based upon peaks indicating respiratory rate, heart rate, or harmonics thereof. Peaks may be adjusted based on a ratio that considers removed signals. A metric of patient status is then determined from the peaks or corresponding frequencies. The patient status may be related to blood volume of the patient and may be used to control pump operation.

  • Publication number: 20190000326
    Abstract: Devices, systems, and methods for filtering medical device noise artifacts from venous waveform signals are disclosed. A peripheral venous pressure (PVP) is measured and transformed from the time domain to the frequency domain for analysis to determine patient status. To avoid artifacts of the pumping, the time-domain PVP measurements are filtered to generate a filtered time-domain PVP signal by removing active pumping periods. The filtered time-domain PVP signal is transformed into a frequency-domain PVP signal, which is analyzed based upon peaks indicating respiratory rate, heart rate, or harmonics thereof. A metric of patient status is then determined from the peaks or corresponding frequencies. The patient status may be related to blood volume of the patient and may be used to control pump operation.

  • Publication number: 20030140928
    Abstract: A system and method for providing medical treatment, such as medication, to a patient. The administration of the medication may include the use of an infusion pump. The system may be implemented in a variety of ways including as a computer program. The computer program accessing information related to the identity of a clinician, the identity of a patient, the identity of a medical treatment, and the identity of a medical device. The computer program determines whether the medical treatment has been previously associated with the patient and whether a plurality of operating parameters for the medical device are consistent with the medical treatment. The computer program also includes logic for providing a first error signal if the medical treatment has not been previously identified with the patient; and a second error signal if the operating parameters for the medical device are not consistent with the medical treatment.
