  • Publication number: 20200049691
    Abstract: According to some embodiments of the present disclosure, a device and method for determining an allowable amount of blood glucose (bG) of a patient is disclosed. The method further includes receiving a current bG measurement, determining a target bG value, and determining a correction delta bG value based on one or more advice history records. The method includes determining a correction meal rise value and determining a maximum allowed bG value based on the target bG value, the correction delta bG value, and the correction meal rise value. The method includes setting the allowable amount of bG value equal to the maximum allowed bG value when the current bG measurement is greater than the target bG value and determining the allowable amount of bG value using the target bG value and the correction delta bG value when the current bG measurement is less than the target bG value.

  • Patent number: 10251583
    Abstract: A device and method for delivering insulin to a patient is disclosed. The method includes receiving an amount of insulin to deliver to a patient and beginning delivery of the insulin to the patient. The method further includes monitoring the delivery of the insulin to determine whether the insulin pump is able to deliver the entire amount of insulin and maintaining a timer until the insulin pump recommences the delivery of the insulin. The method includes comparing an amount of time indicated by the timer to a threshold. The method further includes generating a first insulin delivery record indicating that a first amount of insulin was delivered when the amount of time indicated by the timer is less than the threshold and a second insulin record indicating that a second amount of insulin was delivered when the amount of time indicated by the timer is greater than the threshold.

  • Publication number: 20170152440
    Abstract: A method of producing a modified biochar and the use of the biochar as a soil amendment. The modified biochar can be produced by contacting biochar with an acid-containing solution obtained from an acid containing stream produced in a pyrolysis process, which produces biochar. In accordance with one aspect, a cellulose-containing biomass is pyrolyzed to generate a gaseous organic acid-containing stream, which is condensed to produce an organic acid-containing solution. The biochar is then modified by contact with the organic acid-containing solution.
