  • Publication number: 20220133189
    Abstract: An active-pulse blood analysis system has an optical sensor that illuminates a tissue site with multiple wavelengths of optical radiation and outputs sensor signals responsive to the optical radiation after attenuation by pulsatile blood flow within the tissue site. A monitor communicates with the sensor signals and is responsive to arterial pulses within a first bandwidth and active pulses within a second bandwidth so as to generate arterial pulse ratios and active pulse ratios according to the wavelengths. An arterial calibration curve relates the arterial pulse ratios to a first arterial oxygen saturation value and an active pulse calibration curve relates the active pulse ratios to a second arterial oxygen saturation value. Decision logic outputs one of the first and second arterial oxygen saturation values based upon perfusion and signal quality.

  • Publication number: 20220125380
    Abstract: Various sensor tapes can improve securing of a non-invasive optical sensor to a surface of a medium for taking noninvasive measurement of characteristics of the medium. The sensor tape can taper from a wide end to a narrow end. The sensor tape can transition from a wide portion to a narrow portion in a step-like change or slope. The sensor tape can have staggered portions. The various tapes can be used with an L-shaped sensor. The various tapes can increase contact surface between the surface of the medium and an adhesive side of the tape so as to reduce motion-induced noise.

  • Publication number: 20220122304
    Abstract: System and methods are provided for augmented reality displays for medical and physiological monitoring. Augmented reality user interfaces are virtually pinned to a physical device, a location, or to a patient. An augmented reality position determination process determines the presentation of user interfaces relative to reference positions and reference objects. Detection of gestures causes the augmented reality users interfaces to be updated, such as pinning a user interface to a device, location, or patient. Looking away from an augmented reality user interface causes the user interface to minimize or disappear in an augmented reality display. An augmented reality gesture detection process determines gestures based on captured image data and computer vision techniques performed on the image data.

  • Publication number: 20220117564
    Abstract: A first medical device can receive a physiological parameter value from a second medical device. The second physiological parameter value may be formatted according to a protocol not used by the first medical device such that the first medical device is not able to process the second physiological parameter value to produce a displayable output value. The first medical device can pass the physiological parameter data from the first medical device to a separate translation module and receive translated parameter data from the translation module at the first medical device. The translated parameter data can be processed for display by the first medical device. The first medical device can output a value from the translated parameter data for display on the first medical device or an auxiliary device.

  • Patent number: 11272852
    Abstract: A method of determining blood pressure measurements includes inflating a cuff, receiving an indication of pressure inside the cuff during inflation, determining a blood pressure based at least in part on the received indication, assigning a confidence level to the blood pressure, and determining whether the confidence level satisfies a threshold confidence level. Based at least on a determination that the confidence level satisfies a threshold confidence level, the method can include causing a display to display the blood pressure. Based at least on a determination that the confidence level does not satisfy a threshold confidence level, the method can include deflating the cuff, receiving an indication of pressure inside the cuff during deflation, determining another blood pressure, and causing a display to display a blood pressure.

  • Publication number: 20220042833
    Abstract: A physiological monitor gauge panel defines parameters to display on a physiological monitor via corresponding gauges. Gauge faces depict a range of parameter values for each of the parameters. An indicator designates a position on each gauge face corresponding to the current parameter value within the range of parameter values. The indicated position on each of the gauges is at the mid-point of each of the gauge faces when each of the parameters is at a nominal value.

  • Publication number: 20210386327
    Abstract: A patient monitoring system to help manage a patient that is at risk of falling is disclosed. The system includes a patient-worn wireless sensor that can be affixed to the patient's back that senses the patient's motion and wirelessly transmits information indicative of the sensed motion to a patient monitor. The patient monitor receives, stores, and processes the transmitted information to determine whether the patient has fallen or is about to fall. Upon such detection, the system can notify the patient's caretakers that the patient has fallen or is about to fall and therefore, is in need of immediate attention.

  • Publication number: 20210378522
    Abstract: A patient monitoring system includes an inflatable cuff, a gas reservoir containing a compressed gas, and a sensor. When the inflatable cuff is coupled to a wearer, the gas reservoir supplies gas to the inflatable cuff to inflate the inflatable cuff via gas pathways. As the inflatable cuff inflates, a patient monitor can receive blood pressure data from the sensor and use the blood pressure data to determine the blood pressure of the wearer. The patient monitor can also receive blood pressure data during deflation of the inflatable cuff to determine the blood pressure of the wearer.
