  • Patent number: 10790046
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatus are provided that allow a user to draw and edit a chemical structure using one or more gestures performed on an input interface, such as a touch pad or touch screen. For example, the user may assign an atom label to a chemical structure representation by performing a press and tap gesture, change a chemical bond characteristic in the chemical structure representation by performing a tap gesture, and/or lengthen a molecular chain in the chemical structure representation by performing a drag gesture. The user may also rotate the chemical structure representation in the graphical display by performing one or more rotation gestures.

  • Patent number: 10758701
    Abstract: Methods of an apparatus determine a quantity of a body of water in a humidifier such as by indirect measurement. The quantity of water may be determined by measuring one or more properties or characteristics, from which the quantity of water may be inferred. Characteristics of a flow of air, the humidifier, and/or the body of water may be measured. The characteristics may be, for example, pressure, flow rate, noise, vibration, temperature, electrical or mechanical. These may be measured by one or more sensors, which may be located in the humidifier, RPT device, air circuit or the patient interface. The methods described may have advantages, for example in being able to detect the quantity of water without requiring sensors to be present in a disposable component, and in some cases, without introduction of additional sensors.

  • Publication number: 20200246576
    Abstract: A humidifier includes a humidifier tub including an air inlet and an air outlet. The air outlet may have an exit port positioned in a plane disposed below the air inlet. A base plate is provided to the bottom of the humidifier tub. The base plate and humidifier tub define a water chamber adapted to receive a volume of water. The humidifier tub may include a guidance structure adapted to direct air entering the humidifier tub via the air inlet to swirl downwardly and around within the humidifier tub reaching the water surface before exiting the exit port. The tub may include a structure to prevent the inadvertent entry of water from the tub to the flow generator.

  • Publication number: 20200202357
    Abstract: A payment processing device can implement a monitoring system to detect for tamper attempts at a chip card interface. The monitoring system can establish a baseline when no chip card is present in the chip card interface, or in some embodiments, when it is known that an authentic chip card 14 is present in the slot 21. During subsequent evaluations of the chip card interface by the monitoring system, a response received by the monitoring system that deviates from the baseline can indicate that a tamper attempt at the chip card interface may have occurred. If a tamper attempt is determined by the monitoring system, a remedial or corrective action can be taken.

  • Patent number: 10661043
    Abstract: A humidifier includes a humidifier tub with an air inlet and an air outlet. An uppermost end of the air outlet terminates at an exit port positioned in a plane disposed below the air inlet. The air inlet is configured so that air enters the humidifier tub through the air inlet in a lateral direction. The humidifier also includes a base plate provided to a bottom of the humidifier tub. The base plate and humidifier tub define a water chamber adapted to receive a volume of liquid water. The humidifier tub further includes a guidance structure adapted to direct air entering the humidifier tub via the air inlet to swirl downwardly and around within the water chamber and into contact with the liquid water before exiting the exit port.

  • Publication number: 20200139065
    Abstract: A vent assembly for use with a respiratory mask of the type used in CPAP treatment includes a porous disk portion that is attached to a biasing member such that the disk portion is maintained in a substantially sealed position against a main vent to minimize airflow through at least one side vent of the vent assembly. Debris build-up on the disk portion can cause the biasing member to deflect to provide an additional path for airflow through the at least one side vent. In another embodiment, the vent assembly can also include an anti-asphyxia feature to provide an airflow path from the environment to the user. An oxygen diverter valve may be disposed between the breathing apparatus flow generator and an oxygen injection port.

  • Publication number: 20200034822
    Abstract: A device may run an application having information with multiple accounts associated with processing of transactions. The application may provide account information that is used to process the transactions. At the same time, a background application may operate on the device. The background application may be compatible with a second device, and when within range of the second device, may communicate background messages relevant to the transaction. The transaction may then be processed based on the account information and the background messages.

  • Patent number: 10438189
    Abstract: A payment processing device can implement a monitoring system to detect for tamper attempts at a physical interface such as a chip card interface. The monitoring system can establish local tamper criteria including a baseline when no chip card is present in the chip card interface, or in some embodiments, when it is known that an authentic chip card is present in the slot. During subsequent evaluations of the chip card interface by the monitoring system, a response received by the monitoring system that deviates from the local test criteria can indicate that a tamper attempt at the chip card interface may have occurred. The payment processing device may also communicate test results to a server for further testing, or for an update of the local test criteria.

  • Patent number: 10410202
    Abstract: An expedited booting process with brownout detection for a payment reader is provided. The payment reader can execute a boot sequence from read only memory at startup. A check is made of a stored flag value to determine whether a value such as a flag indicates whether or not a prior execution of the boot sequence was successful. If the last execution of the boot sequence was successful, the boot sequence can be executed at a faster clock rate. Otherwise the boot sequence is executed at a slower clock rate. An evaluation can be made to determine whether a predetermined portion of the boot sequence has been surpassed. If the predetermined portion of the boot sequence has been surpassed, the flag value can be set to indicate a successful execution of the boot sequence and the general operating instructions for the payment reader are then executed.
