  • Publication number: 20200184647
    Abstract: Methods include processing image data through a plurality of network stages of a progressively holistically nested convolutional neural network, wherein the processing the image data includes producing a side output from a network stage m, of the network stages, where m>1, based on a progressive combination of an activation output from the network stage m and an activation output from a preceding stage m?1. Image segmentations are produced. Systems include a 3D imaging system operable to obtain 3D imaging data for a patient including a target anatomical body, and a computing system comprising a processor, memory, and software, the computing system operable to process the 3D imaging data through a plurality of progressively holistically nested convolutional neural network stages of a convolutional neural network.

  • Publication number: 20190015608
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an inhaler which comprises a durable unit and a replaceable (cartridge) unit, and which comprises systems, subsystems and elements to provide an “open-inhale-close” user experience. A durable unit comprises a breath-actuated trigger mechanism, and optionally electronics for providing user feedback, and telehealth can capability. A replaceable unit comprises a mouthpiece, blister strip, aerosol path dose counter and a blister piercing and aerosolization engine assembly assembly. A lockout mechanism may be provided to prevent further use of the cartridge when the dose counter reaches a preselected limit, such as zero.

  • Patent number: 8888524
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention disclose a modular power adapter assembly for a portable electronic device. According to one example embodiment, the assembly includes a power adapter housing and an extender member connected to the adapter housing at a first end region thereof. Furthermore, a plug adapter is configured to receive power and removably attach to a second end region of the extender member. A cable is attached to the adapter housing to supply power to a connected portable electronic device.

  • Patent number: 8764632
    Abstract: An endoscopic system may include a catheter or tubing and at least one optical sensor disposed along the catheter or tubing and configured to capture image information from a body lumen when disposed within the body lumen and activated. The system may further include an untethered module operatively arranged with the at least one optical sensor and configured to store or transmit image information captured by the at least one optical sensor. The catheter or tubing, at least one optical sensor and module may be portable during use.

  • Publication number: 20110218451
    Abstract: Described herein are passive nasal device having a resistance to exhalation that is greater than the resistance to inhalation. Also described are devices, methods and systems for sensing and measuring intranasal pressure when a subject is wearing a passive nasal respiratory device that is configured to inhibit exhalation more than inhalation. Also described are adapters for nasal devices and methods of using a nasal device adapter. Adapters may be used so that a passive nasal device may be applied indirectly in communication with a subject's nose; in some variations this may allow the passive nasal device to be re-used. Also described herein are nasal devices having a billowing airflow resistor that is configured to have a greater resistance to exhalation than to inhalation.

  • Publication number: 20090145441
    Abstract: Delayed resistance nasal devices include an airflow resistor that is configured to normally have a higher resistance to exhalation than inhalation, but the higher resistance to exhalation may be suspended, or delayed by activation of an airflow resistor bypass. Activation of an airflow resistor bypass bypasses or decreases the effect of the airflow resistor on nasal airflow through the nasal device, decreasing the resistance to exhalation. Methods of decreasing, suspending, or delaying the onset of the inhibition of the exhalation through such nasal respiratory devices are described.

  • Publication number: 20050283906
    Abstract: A rolling chassis supports dual lifting beams pivotably mounted on adjustable supporting pins. The beams are pivoted by rollers raised by dual driving piers. Each beam carried a pair of blocks for a rope running from a locking system on the chassis to one side of an upper harness, and another pair of blocks for a rope running from a locking system on the chassis to one side of a lower harness. A retractable knee pad assists lifting a patient from sitting to standing position as the beams pivot and retract the cables.
