  • Publication number: 20210330188
    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.

  • Publication number: 20210290184
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for remote patient management and monitoring. The patient is monitored with a wireless sensor system connected to an application executing on a patient user computing device. The system continuously monitors physiological parameters, such as, but not limited to, blood oxygen saturation (SpO2), pulse rate, perfusion index, pleth variability index, and/or respiration rate from the photoplethysmograph. The system triggers alarms if the patient physiological data violates thresholds. Care providers review patient data and associated alarm(s) with graphical user interfaces.

  • Patent number: 11096631
    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: 20210134130
    Abstract: A modular patient monitor provides a multipurpose, scalable solution for various patient monitoring applications. In an embodiment, a modular patient monitor utilizes multiple wavelength optical sensor and/or acoustic sensor technologies to provide blood constituent monitoring and acoustic respiration monitoring (ARM) at its core, including pulse oximetry parameters and additional blood parameter measurements such as carboxyhemoglobin (HbCO) and methemoglobin (HbMet). Expansion modules provide blood pressure BP, blood glucose, ECG, CO2, depth of sedation and cerebral oximetry to name a few. Aspects of the present disclosure also include a transport dock for providing enhanced portability and functionally to handheld monitors. In an embodiment, the transport dock provides one or more docking interfaces for placing monitoring components in communication with other monitoring components. In an embodiment, the transport dock attaches to the modular patient monitor.

  • Publication number: 20210117525
    Abstract: A physiological patient monitoring system with a healthcare professional-facing interface is disclosed. The healthcare professional interface may only display by default the most critical non-confidential patient information. To access the full range of features in the system, clinicians can unlock the device. Once unlocked, clinicians can access all of a patient's treatment history, and all the data may be consolidated and presented intuitively.

  • Publication number: 20200113520
    Abstract: A band configured to apply a force to a physiological sensor on a portion of a user's body can include an elastic segment, a first indicator, and a second indicator. The elastic segment can have a first end and a second end opposite the first end, and a first portion of the elastic segment can be secured to a second portion of the elastic segment to form a closed loop that can at least partially secure the physiological sensor to the portion of the user's body when in use. The first and second indicators can be spaced apart from one another and positioned along the elastic segment. The first indicator can be positioned closer to the first end than the second indicator. A relative distance between the first and second indicators can provide an indication of a desired stretch of the elastic segment.
