  • Publication number: 20200015970
    Abstract: An at least partial annuloplasty ring for transcatheter cardiac valve treatment is disclosed. The annuloplasty ring has a plurality of separate chain segments serially interlinked and articulated to a chain. The chain has a substantially elongate delivery configuration and a curved deployment configuration. At least one of said chain segments has at least one tissue anchor attached to it, wherein the tissue anchor is movably arranged at least partly within the chain segment in the delivery configuration and protrudes from the chain segment in the deployment configuration in order to anchor with cardiac tissue.

  • Patent number: 10463261
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for determining pulseless electrical activity (PEA) are described. The method may include determining by using a first sensor on a person, a heart rate of the person based on sensed electrical activity of the person. A pulse rate of the person may be determined using a second sensor, the pulse rate of the person being based on at least one sensed parameter other than the sensed electrical activity. The method may then include determining a correlation of the determined heart rate and the determined pulse rate and then generating an alert event based at least in part on the correlation being outside of a predetermined threshold.

  • Publication number: 20150339709
    Abstract: A system including: a memory element for storing an artificial intelligence program (AIP); an interface element for receiving, from a wireless communications device (WCD), a first portion of an order; and a processor for generating, using the AIP, an offer in response to items or services in the first portion of the order. The interface element is for transmitting the offer to the WCD and receiving, from the WCD, a second portion of the order. The processor is for modifying, using the AIP, the offer in response to items or services in the first and second portions of the order by adding or modifying items, services, or incentives. The interface element is for transmitting the modified offer to the wireless communications network for transmission to the WCD.

  • Patent number: 8843792
    Abstract: A control channel may be used to transmit control information, such as Downlink Control Information (DCI), to a mobile device from a network component, such as a base station or a base node. The mobile device may use a blind decoding scheme to detect DCIs. A DCI may be falsely detected by the mobile device. According to some embodiments, data that has been decoded by a blind decoder, from buffer data for a candidate control channel, is re-encoded. The re-encoded data is compared to buffer data for the control channel. The decoded data is treated as control information dependent on the comparison of the re-encoded data with the buffer data. In some embodiments, comparing the re-encoded data to the buffer data includes generating a metric as a function of a degree of similarity between the re-encoded data and the buffer data. The metric may be compared to a threshold.
