  • Patent number: 10898098
    Abstract: A myocardial excitation determining apparatus which can support the determination of excitation dynamics of the myocardium during atrial fibrillation is provided. A myocardial excitation determining apparatus has: an acquiring section 2 which acquires an intracardiac electrocardiogram of a subject; a processing section 3 which computes to produce visualized data indicating a state of excitation in the myocardium, based on the intracardiac electrocardiogram; and a determining section 4 which determines the type of excitation dynamics of the myocardium based on the visualized data.

  • Publication number: 20200221964
    Abstract: A myocardial excitation complementation/visualization apparatus includes an acquiring section that acquires intracardiac electrocardiograms of a subject, the intracardiac electrocardiograms being recorded by a recording unit having a plurality of electrodes, a processing section that performs a computation for completing and visualizing a state of excitation in a myocardium of the subject based on the intracardiac electrocardiograms, and a displaying section that displays the state of excitation in the myocardium of the subject based on an output of the processing section. The processing section includes a first generating section, a correcting section, a second generating section, and a third generating section. The displaying section displays a change of the state of excitation in the myocardium of the subject based on the visualized data.

  • Patent number: 9595768
    Abstract: A glazing is disclosed comprising at least one ply of glass having an electrically conductive component on at least one surface, and an electrical connector electrically connected to the electrically conductive component through a soldered joint, the solder of the joint having a composition comprising 0.5 wt % or more indium, wherein the electrical connector comprises a nickel plated contact for contacting the solder. Also disclosed are solders having a composition comprising 14 to 75 wt % In, 14 to 75 wt % Sn, to 5 wt % Ag, to 5 wt % Ni, and less than 0.1 wt % Pb. Also disclosed is use of a solder having a composition comprising 0.5 wt % or more indium to solder a nickel plated electrical connector to an electrically conductive component on the surface of a ply of glass. The aspects of the invention improve the durability of electrical connections on glazing.
