  • Patent number: 10926099
    Abstract: A defibrillator system optimizes the timing and manner of applying a defibrillator charge to a patient based upon data provided to the defibrillator from a utility module or one or more external devices. A parameter module on the utility module provides the defibrillator with patient parameter information. Devices external to the utility module may provide the utility module with coaching data that the utility module may pass through to the defibrillator as a proxy to the external devices. The utility module may also provide external devices with patient data that the utility module may pass through to the external devices as a proxy to the defibrillator on a scheduled or other basis. The utility module may additionally provide a reserve of power to enable defibrillators to be used where power is unavailable and to enable defibrillators to deliver multiple charges more readily anywhere, anytime.

  • Patent number: 10839068
    Abstract: A medical device and associated systems with host devices and one or more accessories are disclosed that are capable of authenticating the host device with intelligent one of more of the intelligent accessories. Each of the host device and the one or more accessories can share a secret or other unique code. The authentication occurs without transmission of the secret or unique code between the host device and the one or more accessories.

  • Patent number: 10500404
    Abstract: An adaptable healthcare module that is coupleable to one or more defibrillator devices is disclosed. The adaptable health care module includes a healthcare coupling to assist with treatment and/or monitoring of a patient. The healthcare coupling can be active while decoupling the adaptable healthcare module from a first defibrillator device and coupling to a second defibrillator device. The coupling of the adaptable healthcare module includes a mechanical engagement, between the adaptable healthcare module and the defibrillator device, to retain the adaptable healthcare module to the defibrillator device.

  • Publication number: 20190209032
    Abstract: A non-invasive blood pressure (NIBP) measurement system that includes a blood pressure cuff and a non-invasive blood pressure monitor. The blood pressure cuff including an inner portion that is selectively inflatable and an outer portion that is rigid or semi-rigid. The outer portion reducing external stimuli on the inner portion. The inner portion connected to a sensor coupled to the NIBP monitor, the sensor sensing a pressure of the inner portion. The NIBP monitor receiving the sensor data and processing the sensor data to determine a blood pressure of a patient about which the blood pressure cuff has been placed.

  • Publication number: 20180271443
    Abstract: A system for treating and/or monitoring a patient includes a patient physiological parameter monitoring patch and a companion device. The patient physiological parameter monitoring patch including an energy harvesting module, an energy storage module, a sensor module and a communication module. The energy harvesting module harvesting energy from one or more ambient sources, the energy being storable in the energy storage module and usable by one or more components of the patient physiological parameter monitoring patch. The sensor module senses one or more physiological parameters of the patient and the communication module can transmit the sensed data. The companion device can receive the sensed physiological parameters and can send the same to a remote device or store the same.
