  • Publication number: 20020087361
    Abstract: Systems useful for analyzing data related to clinical pathways and performing actions based upon the analyses. A self-analyzing system for suggesting default clinical pathways for various procedures. A self-analyzing system for suggesting deviation from a current clinical pathway and entry into an alternative clinical pathway based upon historical information about the results of actions. Statistical analysis systems based on clinical pathways. A rating system for care providers or proposed pathways based on historical information. Systems for gathering clinical pathway information. Systems for tracking clinical pathway outcomes based on data collected post-treatment. A system for prequalification for appropriate discharge and post-discharge handling of and communication with a new class of patient, those requiring stable acute care. A questionnaire computer language and subsystem are used in various stages of the systems of the invention. Corresponding methods are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 4385455
    Abstract: A lightweight pliable heat and noise insulator blanket is mounted to the exterior surface of the axial end wall of a temperature controlled cylinder. The insulator blanket comprises multiple layers of heat and noise insulation material, and the blanket defines a central opening and a slot extending from the central opening through the outer peripheral edge portion so that the blanket can be positioned about the axle of the rotary cylinder. The insulator blanket includes an annular protrusion just inwardly of its outer periphery for placement against the exterior surface of the axial end wall of the rotary cylinder to form a seal between the insulator blanket and the rotary cylinder. The outer peripheral portion of the insulator blanket extends about the connector screws of the rotary cylinder while the annular seal of the insulator blanket is urged by centrifugal force toward a sealed relationship between the insulator blanket and the axial end wall of the rotary cylinder.

  • Patent number: 4385453
    Abstract: A lightweight plyable heat and noise end panel insulator panel is mounted to the exterior surface of the axial end wall of a temperature controlled cylinder. The insulator panel comprises multiple layers of heat and noise insulation material and relatively non-stretchable material stitched and grommeted together whereby a pattern of pockets are formed to hold the fragile heat insulation in place. The panel defines a central opening and a slot extending from the central opening through the outer peripheral edge portion so that the panel can be positioned about the axle of the cylinder.

  • Patent number: 4385454
    Abstract: A lightweight pliable heat and noise insulator blanket is mounted to the exterior surface of the axial end wall of a temperature controlled cylinder with band clamps that grasp adjacent ones of the connector screws that hold the end panel to the cylinder. The insulator blanket comprises multiple layers of heat and noise insulation material, and the blanket defines a central opening and a slot extending from the central opening through the outer peripheral edge portion so that the blanket can be positioned about the axle of the rotary cylinder. The band clamps each include a band formed in a closed shape for positioning about adjacent ones of the connector screws of the rotary cylinder, and a mounting block positioned between the connector screws.
