  • Publication number: 20190343456
    Abstract: Presented are concepts for monitoring cardio-respiratory function of a patient. One such concept comprises detecting light or sound from the sublingual vasculature using a sublingual sensor unit adapted to be positioned at a sublingual vasculature of the patient's tongue and to generate a sensor output signal based on the detected light or sound. A processing unit adapted to receive at least one of the sensor unit output signal, wherein the sensor unit and the processing unit are arranged to analyze the venous component in the sensor output signal. An output signal from the sublingual sensor may then be used to provide information on cardio-respiratory parameters like respiration rate and respiration rate variability, for example.

  • Publication number: 20180344566
    Abstract: A device is provided for controlling the nitric oxide levels within the lungs of a subject. The device comprises a detector for detecting the respiration cycle of the subject and a stimulator for applying an acoustic or vibratory stimulus to the subject. The stimulator is controlled in dependence on the detected respiration cycle. In particular, acoustic stimulation may be provided at the onset of inspiration. In this way, the nitric oxide flow can be controlled in a way to ensure that the paranasal nitric oxide is nearly fully inspired. This provides a higher nitric oxide concentration in the lung/alveoli.

    Abstract: Various systems, apparatus and methods are described herein for generating cardiac, cardiopulmonary, and/or hemodynamics phenotypes of patients for use in various applications. In various embodiments, a ventilation support apparatus connected to a patient may be operated to perform a therapeutic maneuver selected to cause one or more targeted receptors of the patient to initiate an autoregulation response in the patient. In various embodiments, a measurement may be taken of one or more changes in a vital sign of the patient such as blood pressure that is caused by initiation of the autoregulation response in the patient. In various embodiments, a cardiac, cardiopulmonary, or hemodynamic phenotype of the patient may be generated based on the measured one or more changes.
