  • Publication number: 20190350660
    Abstract: The apparatus of one embodiment of the present invention is comprised of a flexible sheath instrument, a flexible guide instrument, and a tool. The flexible sheath instrument comprises a first instrument base removably coupleable to an instrument driver and defines a sheath instrument working lumen. The flexible guide instrument comprises a second instrument base removably coupleable to the instrument driver and is threaded through the sheath instrument working lumen. The guide instrument also defines a guide instrument working lumen. The tool is threaded through the guide instrument working lumen. For this embodiment of the apparatus, the sheath instrument and guide instrument are independently controllable relative to each other.

  • Patent number: 6761682
    Abstract: An infant care apparatus includes a base, a patient-support portion carried by the base, a canopy situated above the patient-support portion, and a mechanism for vertically raising and lowering the canopy relative to the patient-support portion. A convective heating system is operable to provide heated air into a space defined between the patient-support portion and the canopy. A radiant heater is coupled to the canopy and is operable to direct radiant heat toward the patient-support portion. A control system controls the operation of the convective heating system and the radiant heater.

  • Patent number: 6036634
    Abstract: A patient support and environmental control apparatus comprises a frame and an upwardly-facing patient-support surface carried by the frame. An air curtain generator is mounted to the frame. The air curtain generator provides first and second curtains of air. The patient-support surface has a perimeter and the first and second curtains of air originate adjacent to the perimeter and converge at a point positioned to lie above the patient-support surface. The first and second curtains of air cooperate with the patient-support surface to define a patient space.

  • Patent number: 5817003
    Abstract: A patient warming apparatus includes a support surface for supporting a patient, a convective heater for supplying convective heat to warm the patient, and a radiant heater for supplying radiant heat to warm the patient. The apparatus also includes a controller having a first output coupled to the convective heater and a second output coupled to the radiant heater for varying output power levels of the convective heater and the radiant heater, respectively, to maintain the patient located on the support surface at substantially a preselected temperature.

  • Patent number: 5759149
    Abstract: A patient support system having an environmentally controlled area over the patient including a frame with a patient support thereon and a moveable canopy thereover. The support is generally rectangular and is provided with a vertical fluid curtain at its perimeter on each of its four sides. The four vertical curtains are deflected inwardly by the canopy to provide the environmentally controlled area over the patient and with a fluid return to the perimeter to provide a closed fluid path. The air curtains can be heated and/or have water vapor added thereto. An infrared heater is provided in the canopy for a second source of heat. An integrated control system is also provided.
