  • Publication number: 20230181866
    Abstract: A humidification system can include a heater base, a chamber, and a breathing circuit. The heater base includes a heater plate positioned in a recessed region, and a heat conductive portion of the chamber is configured to contact the heater plate. The heater base includes a guard configured to control movement of the chamber into and out of the recessed region. The guard includes an anti-racking mechanism. The chamber includes an inlet port, an outlet port. A downward extension extends into the chamber from the inlet port, and a baffle is disposed at a lower end of the downward extension. A component of the breathing circuit can include a conduit hanging end cap for shipping and storage. The end cap can include a hanging component to allow the breathing circuit component to be hung from a medical stand. The system can detect when breathing circuits are connected in reverse.

  • Publication number: 20220335736
    Abstract: Computer-implemented methods and systems are provided for automatically identifying features of a cytology specimen. An example method can involve dividing a whole slide image of the cytology specimen into a plurality of image portions; applying a first neural network to each image portion to identify one or more relevant image portions; and applying a second neural network to a first relevant image portion and a second relevant image portion to generate a respective first and second cell data. Each relevant image portion can be an image portion containing a region of interest for the cytology specimen. The method can further involve comparing the first and second cell data to determine whether a similarity threshold is satisfied; and in response to determining the similarity threshold is not satisfied, continuing to apply the second neural network to a subsequent relevant image portion until the similarity threshold is satisfied.

  • Patent number: 10662503
    Abstract: A method of selectively leaching a metal such as nickel from an ore or ore processing intermediate comprising the metal and cobalt. The ore or ore processing intermediate is contacted with an acidic leach solution comprising an amount of an oxidising agent sufficient to oxidise a major portion of the cobalt to thereby cause it to be stabilised in the solid phase while a major portion of the metal is dissolved for subsequent recovery.
