  • Publication number: 20210020311
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for enhanced medical diagnostic data pattern recognition in an individual or in a population of individuals. The method comprises compiling a dataset consisting of at least seven essential vital signs of an individual or population of individuals, wherein the dataset is compiled and mapped in at least three ways: (1) as a mathematical tensor; (2) as a visual graph; or (3) as a musical composition. Essential vital signs can include systolic pressure values of 60-140; diastolic pressure values of 40-85; time of day values of 1-24; oximeter data values of 92-99; date data values translated to adjusted circadian process; pulse data values of 40-90; and weight values.

  • Publication number: 20150079921
    Abstract: A method for interoperable communications including at least the step of: a) at least one radio user's being able to transmit at least one transmission on a first radio frequency to a computer having at least one sound card and at least two sound card channels on one or more sound cards, wherein each of the at least two sound card channels is programmed to receive and process transmissions from at least two separate radio frequencies. This configuration creates a new way of interfacing virtually any speaker with virtually any computer, and allows a paradigm shift of communications organization such that everyone can talk at once, literally, and still “hear” everyone else.

  • Patent number: 5326896
    Abstract: The present invention is a process for converting a high-boiling component resulting from the reaction of an organochloride with silicon into commercially more desirable monosilanes. The process comprises contacting the high-boiling component with hydrogen gas at a temperature within a range having a lower limit greater than 250.degree. C. and an upper limit of 1000.degree. C. Yield of the present process may be improved by use of a catalyst selected from a group consisting of activated carbon, platinum metal, platinum supported on alumina, palladium supported on carbon, SbCl.sub.5, H.sub.2 PtCl.sub.6, BCl.sub.3, AlCl.sub.3, and AlCl.sub.3 supported on a support material selected from a group consisting of carbon, alumina, and silica. In a preferred embodiment of the present process the process is run at a pressure within a range of about 250-1000 psig. The present process is preferential for the production of diorganodichlorosilane in relation to organotrichlorosilane in the monosilane product.

  • Patent number: 5214359
    Abstract: A winch having an electronic current limiter to shut off power to the drive motor when a load limit is attained. The electronic current limiter utilizes a linear hall effect transducer mounted in a torroid surrounding a conductor carrying current to the motor. The transducer outputs a voltage which is compared to a regulated preset voltage. The regulated preset voltage is preset at a value that corresponds to the voltage output of the transducer when the maximum allowed current is flowing in the current carrying conductor. The preset voltage establishes a trip point or threshold. The output voltage of the transducer and the preset voltage are compared and when the output voltage of the transducer crosses the threshold or trip point, power to the winch drive motor is shut off. The electronic current limiter includes a reset circuit that requires the motor to be driven in the reverse direction after an overload shut down before the motor may be run in the initial direction.

  • Patent number: 4873474
    Abstract: A winch powered by an electric motor. A steel torroid determines the magnetic field generated by the current demand of the motor. A voltage sensitive hall effect switch is provided with a voltage input. The magnetic field detected by the steel torroid is also provided to the hall effect switch. Upon receiving the combined input of magnetic field and voltage, the hall effect switch is activated to shut off the motor. A potentiometer varies the voltage input to the hall effect switch to vary the demand of magnetic field necessary to activate the shut off function.

  • Patent number: 4718463
    Abstract: There is disclosed a process for producing sterilized prefilled plastic syringes avoiding plastic deformation and distortion. The plastic barrels are subjected to repeated water jet washing steps to remove contaminants and depyrogenate the barrels. Tip seals and pistons are subjected to removal of debris and pyrogens and destruction of microbial contaminants. After the tip is assembled on the nozzle of the barrel, the barrel is filled with contrast media through its open end, after which the piston is assembled in the open end to seal the syringe and its contents. The assembled and sealed syringe is then subjected to autoclaving to sterilize the syringe and its contents, without deformation of the plastic syringe or a loss of integrity to the closed media/syringe system.
