  • Patent number: 9095644
    Abstract: A fluid collector has a container, a T-tube, a first screw unit and a second screw unit. The T-tube is connected to the container and has a main pipe and a branch pipe. The first screw unit is mounted in an outlet end of the main pipe. The second screw unit is mounted in a connecting end of the branch pipe, which is connected to the main pipe. The branch pipe has a detecting opening far from the connecting end and connects to a detecting device. By changing the length of the first and second screw units, different detecting values of the pressure are adjusted according to containers with different capacities. Moreover, with the flowing resistance resulting from the first and second screw units, different pressure variations are performed when liquid or air passes through the T-tube. Therefore, massive hemorrhage is clearly identified to keep the patient safe.

  • Patent number: 8799931
    Abstract: An apparatus for controlling at least one electronic device is coupled to a host. The apparatus includes a controller and a non-volatile storage unit. The controller is controlled by a driver of the host to thereby control the operation of the electronic device. The non-volatile storage unit is externally coupled to the controller and used for storing data. When the driver is activated, it is determined whether the non-volatile storage unit stores a setting data utilized for the driver. If the setting data for the driver is stored in the non-volatile storage unit, the setting data of the driver is read out for setting the driver.
