  • Patent number: 10668195
    Abstract: A catheter blood pump includes a catheter, an expandable impeller housing, a drive cable, and a fixed-diameter impeller. The drive cable, which is operatively coupled to an extracorporeal motor, conveys torque that drives rotation of the impeller. The catheter and impeller housing are movable independently of one another to alter the relative axial positions of the catheter, impeller housing, and the fixed-diameter impeller. This arrangement maximizes the diameter of the catheter blood pump's fixed-diameter impeller.

  • Publication number: 20200050630
    Abstract: Described are systems, methods and computer program products for suggesting television programs to a user by, for example, analyzing closed caption or subtitle content of unwatched or unrecorded video content to determine if the video content is of interest to the user. The user may indicate one or more keywords for use in the analysis and the analysis may scan the text of the closed caption or subtitle content to identify matches to the keywords. Beside user input keywords, the keywords may also be determined through analysis of video content watched or recorded by the user to determine frequently encountered words. These frequently encountered words may automatically be used in matching the text of the closed caption or subtitle content. The users may also or alternatively select particular words of the frequently encountered words to use for matching.

  • Publication number: 20200009751
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a magnifier defines a longitudinal axis A. The magnifier includes an arm with a distal end and a proximal end. A magnifying pane is located at the distal end and an engagement member is located at the proximal end. In various embodiments, the arm includes a distal segment, a mid segment, and a proximal segment. The distal segment is generally linear having a length L1 projected onto the longitudinal axis and is angled about 45 degrees relative to the longitudinal axis A. The mid segment is generally concave having a length L2 projected onto the longitudinal axis A. The proximal segment that is curved having a length L3 projected onto the longitudinal axis A and is convergent relative to the longitudinal axis A.

  • Publication number: 20190044826
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein are directed at mapping and controlling network-enabled IoT devices housed in an environment via a graphical user interface (GUI) of an electronic device. The disclosed features include generating a digital map representing the 3D or the 2D position of the IoT devices in the environment. In some embodiments, the digital map can be overlaid on a layout of a physical floorplan of the environment also showing physical objects in the environment. Different IoT devices in the environment can be controlled via a GUI common to the different IoT devices. Additionally, the GUI can be used to select a group of IoT devices and perform group-wise control of the IoT devices in the group.

  • Publication number: 20140235727
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to antimicrobial hydrogel polymers, and dressings comprising one or more hydrogel-forming hydrophilic polymers, where the hydrogels and dressings further comprise one or more antimicrobial agents that are released from the hydrogel in a controlled manner. The hydrogels and dressings may be used for medical, veterinary, and/or cosmetic applications. The dressings may be applied, for example, as wound dressings, surgical dressings, and percutaneous site dressings. In certain aspects of the invention, the dressings may be beneficially used in methods of accelerating wound healing, preventing and/or reducing the incidence of wound infection, and reducing scarring associated with wounds.
