  • Publication number: 20210121659
    Abstract: Disclosed is a self-expanding cannula, systems using such cannulae, and methods of their use. The cannulae may comprise single lumen cannula (“SLC”) configurations and double lumen cannula (“DLC”) configurations, and include at least a first cannula and a self-expanding wire frame attached to the first cannula. Self-expanding wire frame is automatically expandable from a compressed state (providing a reduced cannula diameter as it is moved through a patient's body to the site at which it is to be deployed) to an expanded state (which increases the diameter of the cannula to the diameter intended for its normal use). The expanded wire frame provides radial support to prevent a drainage canal (whether a patient's blood vessel or a portion of the system inserted into the patient's blood vessel) from collapsing as fluid is drained from the patient.

  • Publication number: 20210123183
    Abstract: A heating device of a clothes drying treatment device executes an on or off operation in a temperature interval. When the temperature in a drum reaches an upper limit value TDx of the temperature interval under an action of the heating device, the heating device is turned off and the heating device stops heating. The upper limit value TDx decreases as a number of off times x of the heating device increases. Accordingly, a higher initial off temperature is adopted for the heating device, the temperature in the drum rapidly increases to the drying temperature, a preheating time is shortened, and a certain coefficient is multiplied in following control parameters controlling on or off of the heating device. The coefficient is related to the number of on-off times, and the effect is achieved that the off temperature of the clothes dryer gradually decreases as the number of on-off times increases.

  • Patent number: 10988618
    Abstract: Novel, nano-structured particles are formed by introducing a selected solid of interest into a structured fluid matrix formed by a dispersion of a small molecule host vessel components, such as a native or modified polysaccharide, cavitand, simple sugar, disaccharide, simple polyol or other similarly structured molecule known to be useful as a host vessel, in an acidic medium or other solvent, whereby the particle size of the introduced solid is reduced and or limited in the structured fluid matrix, by incorporation into or attachment to, the host vessel. The simple, one-batch mixing process results in stabilized colloidal dispersions of the nanoparticles of a variety of solids of varying scope and function and useful in a wide variety of applications, including without limitation ceramic materials, such as hexagonal boron nitride.

  • Patent number: 10988550
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for preparing a resistant dextrin product by using compound enzyme treatment. Starch is first subjected to high-temperature acidolysis to obtain pyrodextrin which is used as the substrate for the enzyme treatment. A compound enzyme reaction system including a starch branching enzyme and a CGTase is used for preparing the resistant dextrin product. The starch branching enzyme and the CGTase are added simultaneously or sequentially to treat the pyrodextrin to further increase the content of the resistant component in the product. The content of the resistant component of the enzyme treated product reaches up to 65.3%, a 21.3% increase from that of the pyrodextrin before the enzyme treatment.
