  • Patent number: 12004877
    Abstract: Various sensor tapes can improve securing of a non-invasive optical sensor to a surface of a medium for taking noninvasive measurement of characteristics of the medium. The sensor tape can taper from a wide end to a narrow end. The sensor tape can transition from a wide portion to a narrow portion in a step-like change or slope. The sensor tape can have staggered portions. The various tapes can be used with an L-shaped sensor. The various tapes can increase contact surface between the surface of the medium and an adhesive side of the tape so as to reduce motion-induced noise.

  • Patent number: 12004869
    Abstract: Techniques for predicting fluid responsiveness or fluid unresponsiveness are described. A processor can determine a first prediction of fluid responsiveness or unresponsiveness based on a plethysmograph variability parameter associated with a plethysmograph waveform, and can determine a second prediction of fluid responsiveness or unresponsiveness based on a fluid responsiveness parameter that is associated with an elevation of one or more limbs of the patient. The processor can determine an overall prediction of fluid responsiveness or unresponsiveness based on the first and/or second predictions. Based on overall prediction, the processor can cause administration of fluids and/or termination of administration of fluids.

  • Publication number: 20240186747
    Abstract: A magnetic connector has a plug core disposed around a plug contact set and a receptacle core disposed around a receptacle contact set. The plug core defines a generally elongated circular plug core edge. The receptacle core defines a generally elongated concentric-circular receptacle core edge. The receptacle core edge defines an air gap, and the plug core defines an anchor configured to insert into the air gap. A coil is disposed around the receptacle core, and the coil, the plug core and the air gap define a magnetic circuit. The coil is electrically energized so as to form a magnetic field within an air gap, lock the anchor within the air gap and lock the plug contact set to the receptacle contact set accordingly.

  • Patent number: 11969269
    Abstract: A multi-parameter patient monitoring device rack can dock a plurality of patient monitor modules and can communicate with a separate display unit. A signal processing unit can be incorporated into the device rack. A graphics processing unit can be attached to the display unit. The device rack and the graphic display unit can have improved heat dissipation and drip-proof features. The multi-parameter patient monitoring device rack can provide interchangeability and versatility to a multi-parameter patient monitoring system by allowing use of different display units and monitoring of different combinations of parameters. A dual-use patient monitor module can have its own display unit configured for displaying one or more parameters when used as a stand-alone device, and can be docked into the device rack when a handle on the module is folded down.

  • Publication number: 20240136060
    Abstract: A patient monitoring hub can communicate bidirectionally with external devices such as a board-in-cable or a dongle. Medical data can be communicated from the patient monitoring hub to the external devices to cause the external devices to initiate actions. For example, an external device can perform calculations based on data received from the patient monitoring hub, or take other actions (for example, creating a new patient profile, resetting baseline values for algorithms, calibrating algorithms, etc.). The external device can also communicate display characteristics associated with its data to the monitoring hub. The monitoring hub can calculate a set of options for combined layouts corresponding to different external devices or parameters. A display option may be selected for arranging a display screen estate on the monitoring hub.

  • Publication number: 20240122508
    Abstract: An active-pulse blood analysis system has an optical sensor that illuminates a tissue site with multiple wavelengths of optical radiation and outputs sensor signals responsive to the optical radiation after attenuation by pulsatile blood flow within the tissue site. A monitor communicates with the sensor signals and is responsive to arterial pulses within a first bandwidth and active pulses within a second bandwidth so as to generate arterial pulse ratios and active pulse ratios according to the wavelengths. An arterial calibration curve relates the arterial pulse ratios to a first arterial oxygen saturation value and an active pulse calibration curve relates the active pulse ratios to a second arterial oxygen saturation value. Decision logic outputs one of the first and second arterial oxygen saturation values based upon perfusion and signal quality.

  • Publication number: 20240112386
    Abstract: System and methods are provided for augmented reality displays for medical and physiological monitoring. Augmented reality user interfaces are virtually pinned to a physical device, a location, or to a patient. An augmented reality position determination process determines the presentation of user interfaces relative to reference positions and reference objects. Detection of gestures causes the augmented reality users interfaces to be updated, such as pinning a user interface to a device, location, or patient. Looking away from an augmented reality user interface causes the user interface to minimize or disappear in an augmented reality display. An augmented reality gesture detection process determines gestures based on captured image data and computer vision techniques performed on the image data.

  • Publication number: 20240108293
    Abstract: This disclosure describes example alarm notification systems that can enable a clinician to respond to an alarm notification received via a computing device, which may have more advanced functionality than a pager. The clinician device may be a mobile device, such as a cellphone or smartphone, tablet, laptop, personal digital assistant (PDA), or the like. The clinician device may communicate with a remote server to obtain patient data generated by a patient device at the point-of-care (such as a bedside device or patient-worn monitor). This patient data may be continuous monitoring data for one or more patients. A mobile application (optionally a browser application) on the clinician device can enable the clinician to view continuous monitoring data for multiple patients, as well as view and respond to alarms and alerts, all from the clinician device, regardless of location.

  • Patent number: 11944415
    Abstract: A blood pressure measurement system is provided that includes an inflatable cuff, a valve assembly and chamber assembly. The chamber assembly can house a gas canister for providing gas to the inflatable cuff. The valve assembly can include a valve having a high pressure cavity, a low pressure cavity, and a channel providing a gas pathway between the high pressure cavity and the low pressure cavity. The valve assembly can further include a channel cover and spring in the high pressure cavity. The spring can exert a force on the channel cover to create a seal between the high pressure cavity and the channel. The valve assembly can further include a rod extending through the channel and exerting a force on the channel cover to create a gas pathway between the high pressure cavity and the channel.

  • Publication number: 20240099582
    Abstract: A patient monitoring device can be configured to provide fast and reliable physiological measurements in a variety of care settings including at a patient's home. The device can include a compact, standalone monitor with telehealth capabilities as well as an intuitive interface for use at home. The device can include a blood pressure, capnography, or pulse oximetry module. A device can include a sleek and continuous outer surface that is easy to clean and generally free of crevices, holes, or surfaces that collect external contaminants. For example, portions of the housing can connect together using a limited number of screws, thereby limiting a number of holes. The device can include a vent cover that can be rotated to reconfigure the function of the vent cover. For example, the vent cover can function as a stabilization feature and/or a cover for a ventilation hole, while permitting exhaust through the ventilation hole.
