  • Publication number: 20220192918
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device for assisting a first aider with a cardiopulmonary resuscitation of a person suffering cardiac arrest, comprising a transport housing (1), in which a sensor apparatus (4) and two adhesive electrodes (2), which are or can be connected to the sensor apparatus (4), can be stowed. The sensor apparatus (4) allows data to be acquired while the first-aid measures for resuscitation are performed. The sensor apparatus (4) comprises an adhesive (5) for attachment to the chest of the patient (3). The chest compressions, i.e. depth of compression and compression frequency, can be detected by means of a motion sensor. An interface for data transfer allows wireless communication with a mobile terminal (6). Furthermore, the sensor apparatus (4) contains a high-voltage store so that, after connection to the adhesive electrodes (2), a single defibrillation shock can be delivered.

  • Patent number: 11361373
    Abstract: A user device such as a tablet may present search results. Filters may be applied to filter the search results. The filtered search results may include indicia that identify that the filtered search results have been filtered and that individual items within the filtered search results correspond to the applied filter. The indicia may fade out over time as the applied filter expires. The filtered search results may also include the individual items that do not correspond to the applied filter. These individual items may have different indicia applied to them, so as to differentiate them from individual items that do correspond to the applied filter. By providing the indicia, a user is provided with a visual confirmation that the search results have been filtered, what filter has been applied, and a differentiation between the individual items that do and do not correspond with the applied filter.

  • Patent number: 11359174
    Abstract: The invention describes a methodology for production of a secondary extra-particle fungal matrix for application as a mycological material, manufactured via a Type II actively aerated static packed-bed bioreactor. A pre-conditioned air stream is passed through a substrate of discrete elements inoculated with a filamentous fungus to form an isotropic inter-particle hyphal matrix between the discrete elements. Continued feeding of the air through the substrate of discrete elements and isotropic inter-particle hyphal matrixes develops an extra-particle hyphal matrix that extends from an isotropic inter-particle hyphal matrix in the direction of airflow into a void space within the vessel.

  • Publication number: 20220176494
    Abstract: A method of structuring a glass element having a first side face and a second side face is provided. The method includes the steps of: producing a filament-shaped flaw in the glass element with a pulsed laser beam along a focus line; etching to remove glass in the filament-shaped flaw to form a wall extending from the first side face towards the second side face, the wall having a boundary line that is tapered at a vertex between the wall and the first side face with a taper angle with respect to a perpendicular of the first side face; and adjusting the taper angle by controlling a feature of the focus line. The feature is selected from a group consisting of a position of the focus line, a length of the focus line, an intensity distribution of the focus line, and any combinations thereof.

  • Patent number: 11343979
    Abstract: The process for producing mycelium biomaterial provides fresh oxygen to the growing mycelium biomaterial while removing waste heat and waste carbon dioxide by forced aeration through large volumes of material. In a first phase of fungal expansion, humidified air at a programmed temperature is passed upwardly and through a fungal inoculated substrate of discrete particles to allow the fungal inoculum to expand and dominate the substrate. Nutrient is added to the inoculated mixture and a second phase of fungal expansion is performed wherein humidified air at a programmed temperature is passed upwardly and through the nutrient enriched fungal inoculated substrate to allow the fungal inoculum to bond the discrete particles into a self-supporting biocomposite. The process and apparatus of the invention allows for the processing of grown materials bound by mycelium at depths of greater than 6? and particularly in the range of from 24? to 28?.

  • Publication number: 20220166120
    Abstract: A microwave circulator including an integrated circuit having a number of ports and a respective ring segment coupled to each port to allow microwave frequency signals to be transferred between the port and the respective ring segment. The circulator includes multiple respective ring segments arranged to define multiple parallel circulator ring and at least one superconducting tunnel junction interconnecting each pair of adjacent ring segments and/or a plurality of superconducting tunnel junctions interconnecting each pair of adjacent ring segments to form a circulator ring. The ring segments are configured so that when a bias is applied to the tunnel junctions, signals undergo a phase shift as they traverse the tunnel junctions between ring segments, thereby propagating signals to an adjacent port in a propagation direction.

  • Publication number: 20220146220
    Abstract: A weapon system that includes a breechblock, which is formed at least by a breechblock carrier and a breechblock head, the breechblock carrier being designed so as to carry the breechblock head. To achieve the fact that forces acting upon the breechblock drive during the unlocking of the breechblock and the withdrawal of a cartridge casing are minimized or even eliminated, the breechblock head is freely movable relative to the breechblock carrier. To separate the breechblock with a breechblock drive of the weapon system during the recoil of the recoiling masses of the weapon system, a device is designed in such a way that a mechanical separation takes place between the breechblock and the breechblock drive during the recoil of the recoiling masses of the weapon system. During the forward motion of the recoiling masses, the mechanical connection between the breechblock drive and the breechblock is reestablished via the device.
