  • Patent number: 10639441
    Abstract: This disclosure describes systems and methods for managing a move of a patient being monitored or treated by a medical system, such as a medical ventilator. The disclosure describes a novel approach for preventing a patient from being moved from a first location to second different location that is connected to a monitoring and/or treatment system, before all of the necessary hoses have been disconnected from the patient. Further, the disclosure describes a novel approach of ensuring that all of the necessary hoses are reconnected to a patient being monitored or treated by a monitoring and/or treatment system after being moved from the first location to the second different location.

    Abstract: The present invention is directed to compositions and methods for the treatment of degenerative retinal conditions. According to a general aspect, the present invention is directed to inflammatory mediators, preferably components or substrates of the NLRP3-inflammasome, for use in the treatment of degenerative retinal conditions involving drusen and anaphylatoxin-induced choroidal-neovascularisation. The invention is also directed to a method for the treatment of degenerative retinal conditions involving drusen and anaphylatoxin-induced choroidal-neovascularisation and to recombinant vectors and recombinant proteins for use in such methods. The present invention also provides a method for determining the risk of developing or monitoring the progression of diseases involving drusen and anaphylatoxin-induced choroidal neo-vascularisation.

  • Publication number: 20190269853
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for determining fluid administration. The system may determine fluid administration based on the fluid responsiveness and regional oxygen saturation of a subject. The system may receive the fluid responsiveness and regional oxygen saturation from external sources or may determine one or both based on received physiological signals. In some embodiments, the system may determine whether to administer fluid based on the fluid responsiveness and regional oxygen saturation. In some embodiments, the system may determine the amount of fluid to administer based on the fluid responsiveness and regional oxygen saturation. In some embodiments, the system may determine the effectiveness of fluid administration. In some embodiments, the system may provide an indication of the determined fluid administration so that a care-giver can implement the appropriate fluid administration. In some embodiments, the system may control the fluid administration based on its determination.

  • Publication number: 20190255268
    Abstract: The present disclosure combines the advantages of a hybrid mode of ventilation with an automatic determination of an appropriate spontaneous breath type in response to one or more patient based criteria. Specifically, when the ventilator is delivering a spontaneous breath type, a determination may be made as to whether predetermined ventilatory criteria have been met. Based on the determination the ventilator may deliver one of any number of spontaneous breath types.

  • Publication number: 20190066255
    Abstract: Various embodiments enable loop processing in a command processing block of the graphics hardware. Such hardware may include a processor including a command buffer, and a graphics command parser. The graphics command parser to load graphics commands from the command buffer, parse a first graphics command, store a loop count value associated with the first graphics command, parse a second graphics command and store a loop wrap address based on the second graphics command. The graphics command parser may execute a command sequence identified by the second graphics command, parse a third graphics command, the third graphics command identifying an end of the command sequence, set a new loop count value, and iteratively execute the command sequence using the loop wrap address based on the new loop count value.

  • Patent number: 10213550
    Abstract: Methods and systems are presented for monitoring a clinical procedure using regional blood oxygen saturation (rSO2) of a subject. The rSO2 of a subject is monitored, and clinical information is received, indicating that the subject is undergoing a clinical procedure (e.g., an infusion pump procedure for sodium nitroprusside administration). A change in the rSO2 of the subject is detected, which may be indicative of a circulatory system impairment (e.g., elevated venous oxygen saturation) caused by the clinical procedure. Status information, which may be indicative of an increased risk of a physiological event (e.g., cyanide toxicity) is determined for the subject based on the clinical information and the detected change in the rSO2 of the subject. Corrective actions may be triggered based on the status information in order to reduce the increased risk. The corrective actions may be implemented as smart prompt or closed loop systems.

  • Patent number: 10178919
    Abstract: An adjustably-sized and shaped picture frame formed of corner pieces around which are looped or woven one or more filaments such as colored yarns to form the frame borders. The frames created can be customized to various shapes and sizes. The corner pieces may be molded or molded and machined, and may have a diamond shape with inner side edges that align with outer corners of a sheet of artwork. The filament is woven around posts on both a front face and an outer corner of the corner pieces. A chamfer under a lower face of each corner piece may be used to secure free ends of the filament.

  • Publication number: 20170162966
    Abstract: A blade includes both a motherboard and daughter card to allow the combined functionality to be incorporated into a single black for size reduction. Standoffs couple the daughter card to the motherboard. Cantilever portions of the motherboard and daughter card exist between the standoffs and terminals of the motherboard and daughter card. The cantilever portions bend to accommodate any misalignment between the terminals of the motherboard and the daughter card and mating connectors of a bulkhead or printed circuit board backplane.
