  • Patent number: 10292735
    Abstract: An implantable orthopedic device. The device includes: a proximal anchor, configured to be implanted inside a first metatarsal; the anchor having a collar larger than the opening in a metatarsal in which the proximal anchor is implanted; the collar preventing cable to bone contact; a distal anchor, configured to be implanted inside a second metatarsal, adjacent to the first metatarsal; the distal anchor having a male thread, a nut threadable onto the male thread of the distal anchor, and a cord mechanically interconnecting the proximal and distal anchors. A shock absorber includes an elongate housing threadedly positioned within the anchor; the shock absorber accommodates a cord holder mechanically connected to the housing via a damping member, the cord holder is freely rotatable within the housing to prevent the cord from twist kinking when the housing is rotated to adjust a tension force.

  • Patent number: 10245437
    Abstract: A system that includes both an Airway and Ventilation device (AV) and an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) device is described. The system allows minimally trained persons to operate it in emergency situations involving respiratory failure and/or cardiac arrhythmias. An integral part of the AV of the system is a face mask manufactured in two parts: a face attachment unit configured to attach to the patient's face and a mask body that is releasably connected to the face attachment unit by a quick release mechanism allowing quick removal of the mask body from the face attachment unit, leaving only the face attachment unit attached to the patients' face, in order to address urgencies such as vomiting. After vomiting ceases and is cleared, then the mask body may be reattached to continue ventilation.

  • Publication number: 20190054265
    Abstract: A ventilator system for providing respiratory support in cases of acute respiratory failure or severe trauma is described. The ventilator system comprises a ventilator and a tubing system. The system is characterized in that the ventilator comprises a continuous bleed valve configured to be open to air flow from the blower at all times when the blower is operating during both inspiration and expiration; thereby providing a minimal amount of pressure within a patient's lungs at the end of each exhalation positive end expiratory pressure (PEEP). In an embodiment of the invention the system comprises a manifold block configured to hold the main operating elements of ventilator.

  • Patent number: 6802225
    Abstract: A differential-pressure flow sensor for airflow measurement in the presence of water condensation, for use with mechanical ventilators. The pressure-sensing ports at either end of the interfering body are displaced from the inner surface of the surrounding tubing, so as to prevent obstruction of the pressure-sensing ports by free flowing condensed water. The leading edge of the interfering body is angulated so as to deflect airflow towards the pressure-sensing port on the trailing edge of the interfering body, thereby flushing water droplets away from the port. The sides of the interfering body are sloped so as to generate turbulent boundary layer airflow at areas distant from the pressure-sensing ports, thereby encouraging water condensation away from the ports.
