  • Patent number: 10022089
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device and a method for noninvasive measurement of parameters of a bodily tissue, the measuring device having a sensor unit and a sensor mat for detachable placement of the device on a body surface. The sensor unit (1) has a receptacle (6), the interior of which accommodates a sensor arrangement, wherein the receptacle (6) has a sensor surface (15) in the direction of the body surface. The sensor mat (8) has a cutout (11) for accommodating the sensor unit (1) and a contact surface (14), at least partially surrounding the sensor unit (1), for placement on the body surface (9). A cover (12) is provided for closing the cutout (11) over an upper side of the sensor unit (1) and the sensor mat (8) during a measurement of parameters. The sensor unit (1), the sensor mat (8) and the cover (12) are detachable from one another.

  • Publication number: 20060181153
    Abstract: The present invention is a method and system for providing auxiliary power to an integrated anesthesia delivery and patient monitoring system. When AC main power is unavailable or inadequate to power a patient monitoring device of the integrated system, DC power from a battery in an anesthesia machine of the integrated system provides power to the patient monitoring device through a DC power connection. Distribution of the battery power is controlled by a first, normally closed solid state switch in the anesthesia machine and a second, normally open solid state switch in the patient monitoring device. The battery is also configured to provide DC power to the anesthesia machine when AC mains power is unavailable to the anesthesia machine. The method and system utilizes required DC auxiliary power from the anesthesia machine to provide DC auxiliary power to the other devices.

  • Patent number: 6315719
    Abstract: A system for long-term remote medical monitoring is especially suitable for the medical supervision of astronauts onboard a space station. The system includes at least one autonomous sensor unit (SU) with a sensor (1) and transmit/receive electrodes (2) connected to a microchip (3) and mounted on a carrier (4) in the form of an adhesive bandage that can easily be applied to the skin of the subject astronaut (11). The system further includes a body transceiver (10) that is worn on the body of the subject and acts as a centralized transmitting and receiving unit, and a portable data logger (12). Medical data such as the pulse rate and the like, as well as environmental data such as the ambient surrounding air temperature, are sensed by respective allocated sensor units (SU) and transmitted from the sensor units as electrical signals via the skin and other body tissues of the subject (11) to the body transceiver (10).
