  • Publication number: 20190201236
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for temperature modification of a patient, or selected regions thereof, including an induced state of hypothermia. The temperature modification is accomplished using an in-dwelling heat exchange catheter within which a fluid heat exchange medium circulates. A heat exchange cassette is attached to the circulatory conduits of the catheter, the heat exchange cassette being sized to engage a cavity within a control unit. The control unit includes a heater/cooler device for providing heated or cooled fluid to a heat exchanger in thermal communication with the fluid heat exchange medium circulating to the heat exchange catheter, a user input device, and a processor connected to receive input from various sensors around the body and the system. A temperature control scheme for ramping the body temperature up or down without overshoot is provided.

  • Publication number: 20170162069
    Abstract: A method of assisting an administrator in the management of users of a health and wellness system is disclosed. Input data is received from client devices of users of the health and wellness system. Levels of progress of each of the users toward meeting their health goals is determined based on the input data. Recommendations of actions for an administrator to perform are generated based on the determined levels of progress. The recommendations of the actions are ranked based on importance measurements associated with the recommendations. For each of the recommendations of the actions, if a confidence measurement corresponding to the importance measurement of the recommendation transgresses a confidence threshold, the recommendation is automatically processed on behalf of the administrator.

  • Patent number: 8542717
    Abstract: An interrogator, methods of discerning the presence of an object, and interrogation systems employing the same. In one embodiment, the interrogation systems include multiple interrogators that communicate with a base command unit to track a location of an object. In another embodiment wherein the object is an RFID object (e.g., an object with an RFID tag), the interrogators employ signal processing techniques such as precharging the RFID object, and correlating a reference code with a reply code from the RFID object using selected techniques to increase a sensitivity of the interrogator, especially for adverse environments. In other embodiments, the interrogation systems include variations of metal instruments and sponges employed therewith. In yet another embodiment, the interrogation system includes metal interrogators capable of discerning the presence of a metal object, especially in a presence of another metal object.

  • Patent number: 8391488
    Abstract: A data encryption and decryption system securely geoencrypts data using location-dependent navigation signals. To increase the entropy of the cryptographic key to guard against a brute-force attack, geoencryption is made to depend on largely time-independent characteristics of the navigation signals that are not easily spoofed, including the time difference of arrival, the envelope-to-cycle difference, the differential signal-to-noise, the signal envelope shape, and the directions of arrival of the navigation signal set.
