  • Patent number: 9723433
    Abstract: A medical monitoring and communication system for wireless communication between an implantable medical device, a mobile user device, and a remote server includes a sensor device coupled to the implantable medical device. The sensor device is configured to default to a master mode prior to pairing with the mobile user device, listen for a request to connect from the mobile user device, refrain from communicating with the mobile user device responsive to the request to connect from the mobile user device being invalid, and switch to a slave mode to allow cooperative pairing with the mobile user device responsive to the request to connect from the mobile user device being valid. The mobile user device facilitates communication between the sensor device and the remote server when the mobile user device and the sensor device are cooperatively paired.

  • Patent number: 8838251
    Abstract: An implantable medical device (“IMD”) as described herein includes adjustable power characteristics such as variable transmitter output power and variable receiver front end gain. These power characteristics can be adjusted in a dynamic manner based upon various operating aspects of the intended or actual IMD telemetry environment. These operating aspects may include the external telemetry device type, the IMD device type, and/or the type, context, or meaning of the telemetry data transmitted by the IMD. The IMD may process information related to these operating aspects to generate power scaling instructions or control signals that are interpreted by the IMD transmitter and/or the IMD receiver. Such adjustability enables the IMD to satisfy minimum telemetry requirements in a manner that does not waste power, thus extending the IMD battery life.

  • Patent number: 8185210
    Abstract: Medical data is communicated from a transmitter of an external unit to a receiver of an implantable medical device. The transmitter generates a preamble signal having encoded configuration data that informs the receiver of configuration settings to be used in receiving the medical data. The receiver detects the preamble and validates a modulation pattern of the preamble. Configuration data is decoded from the preamble signal and the receiver configuration is adjusted to receive the medical data.

  • Publication number: 20110046698
    Abstract: Techniques are described for recovery of an inadvertently lost communication session between an implantable medical device (IMD) and another device. For example, the IMD or other device may detect loss of the established communication session, attempt to reestablish the communication session on a same channel as the established communication session that was lost, and attempt to reestablish the communication session on an unspecified channel using a telemetry wakeup feature upon the failure to reestablish the communication session on the same channel.
