  • Publication number: 20190134336
    Abstract: A nasal cannula arrangement for use as part of systems for delivery respiratory gases to a patient is disclosed. The nasal cannula arrangement includes a manifold part adapted to receive gases from a delivery conduit. The manifold includes one but preferably a pair of prongs extending upward and curving towards the rear of the manifold. The prongs are inserted into the nostrils of the patient and deliver gases to a patient. The prongs have a cut out on the rear side of the prongs. The cut out forms a gases outlet in the prongs and are shaped such that the area of the cut out area is greater than the cross sectional area of the prongs at the entry point to the prongs.

  • Patent number: 9407256
    Abstract: A method for reducing a disturbance on a signal path is provided. The disturbance is caused by a capacitance (203, 214)of a semiconductor switch (131-133) of an integrated circuit (130). The semiconductor switch (131-133) switches the signal path. The capacitance (203, 214) acts between the semiconductor switch (131-133) and a power supply terminal of the integrated circuit (130). According to the method, the power supply terminal of the integrated circuit (130) is coupled via an impedance (138, 139) to a power supply (137, 140).

  • Publication number: 20060253999
    Abstract: In a method for treating textile goods in rope form in a closed treatment tank, the textile goods are joined at the ends to form an endless rope. By means of a gaseous stream of feeder medium, made to act on the rope via feed nozzle means, a rotational motion inside the treatment tank is imparted to the rope. The rope emerging from the feed nozzle means is lapped, on entering a J-box located in the treatment tank, by the feed nozzle means itself, which execute a reciprocating motion.
