  • Publication number: 20200338278
    Abstract: An inline microgravity air trap device includes an elongate air trap chamber, the air trap chamber having a blind end, an opposite air outlet end containing a gas egress opening, a fluid inlet port connecting to a pressurized fluid supply, a fluid outlet port connecting the air trap chamber to a fluid delivery destination, a filter forming a tube having an interior, a first end at the blind end of the air trap chamber and a second end at the gas egress opening, and a structural insert in the interior of the tube, having a first insert end located at the blind end, and a second insert end located the air outlet end, where the chamber is formed to direct fluid from the pressurized fluid supply to accelerate centrifugally around the filter, forcing gas contained in the fluid to pass through the filter into the interior of the tube.

  • Publication number: 20160360165
    Abstract: A systems and methods for monitoring a patient in or around a bed is provided. Systems and methods are provided for a medical monitoring system that is capable of identifying a positional state, or a sequence of positional states, of a patient in or around a bed, and determining if the positional state, or sequence of positional states, is dangerous to the patient. Upon determining the patient is in danger, an alert is communicated to one or more caregivers.

  • Publication number: 20050142525
    Abstract: A surgical training system includes a tracking system for tracking the position of one or more instruments during a training procedure and objectively evaluating trainee performance based upon one or more metrics using the instrument position information. Instrument position information for the training procedure can be compared against instrument position information for an expert group to generate standardized scores. Various training object can provide realistic haptic feedback during the training procedures.
