  • Publication number: 20200129719
    Abstract: A system for detecting manual ventilation and selectively delivering a high flow of oxygen. The system comprises a source of compressed oxygen coupled to a first lumen of a nasal cannula, with an oxygen flow control valve coupled to a processor to control the flow of oxygen to the nasal cannula. A second lumen of the nasal cannula is in connection with a pressure sensor and the pressure sensor in connection with the processor. The processor may receive the pressure values and be programmed to determine when manual ventilation has occurred, and send a signal to the oxygen flow control valve to send a high flow of oxygen in response to manual ventilation.

  • Patent number: 10269265
    Abstract: A method and apparatus to simulate intrauterine contractions to train clinicians in using a tocodynamometer (TOCO) transducer. The apparatus includes an enclosure housing an air bladder, with an opening in the enclosure for a TOCO transducer to be placed in contact with the air bladder. The air bladder is selectively pressurized by a source of compressed gas, the flow being controlled by a flow valve. A pressure release valve is provided to reduce pressure in the bladder. A pressure sensor monitors the bladder pressure, and can be used to calibrate the system to determine what bladder pressure produced a given uterine activity. The flow valve may be controlled by a software run on a processor to achieve particular uterine activity levels over a given period of time.

  • Publication number: 20190083736
    Abstract: A method and apparatus to deliver a variable flow of oxygen to a patient. The apparatus may include a flow control valve, a pressure sensor to detect a patient's breathing pressure and ambient pressure, an oxygen flow analyzer to measure oxygen flow to the patient, and a processor to analyze the breathing pressure values, ambient pressure value, and oxygen flow rate values and to determine when a patient is inhaling. When the processor determines the patient is inhaling, the processor calculates an optimal oxygen flow rate to deliver to a patient, which may depend on a pre-selected flow rate and an oxygen backlog, and the processor sends a signal to the flow control valve to deliver the optimal oxygen flow rate to the patient.

  • Patent number: 10210774
    Abstract: A method and apparatus to simulate arterial blood pressure pulses to train clinicians in the use of oscillometric blood pressure monitors is described. The apparatus comprises a bladder or blood pressure cuff placed in a rigid enclosure with a known volume. The enclosure also has an opening, with a pressure plate placed between the opening and the bladder. An actuator, such as a servo motor with an arm, is attached to the outside of the enclosure next to the opening such that the arm of the servo motor or actuator may exert a force on the pressure plate, which in turn impinges the bladder. The bladder may be connected to a pressure sensor and an oscillometric blood pressure monitor. The force exerted by the actuator may be controlled in a feedback loop by a controller connected to the actuator and the pressure sensor.

  • Patent number: 10159815
    Abstract: A method and apparatus to identify the source of oxygen delivery failure to a patient. The apparatus may include a pressure sensor to detect a patient's breathing pressure and ambient pressure, an oxygen flow analyzer to measure oxygen flow to the patient, and a processor to analyze the breathing pressure values, ambient pressure value, and oxygen flow rate values. When the oxygen flow rate value is greater than a predetermined threshold value, the processor is programmed to compare the breathing pressure values to the ambient pressure value and output an apnea alarm or an oxygen delivery device displacement alarm.
