  • Patent number: 11457854
    Abstract: A computer implemented method and system are described that identify one or more regions of the heart responsible for supporting or initiating abnormal heart rhythms. Electrogram data is used that has been recorded from a plurality of electrodes on multipolar cardiac catheters obtained from a corresponding series of sensing locations on the heart over a recording time period.

  • Patent number: 10912472
    Abstract: A computer implemented method and system for identifying one or more areas of the heart muscle responsible for supporting or initiating abnormal heart rhythms using electrogram data recorded from a plurality of electrodes obtained from a corresponding series of sensing locations on the heart over a recording time period; the method including the steps of: setting a pre-defined geodesic distance, dividing the recording time period into several analysis time periods, and pairing each sensing location with a plurality of other sensing locations from within the defined geodesic distance, thus forming a plurality of location pairings; for each of the analysis time periods, defining the relative timing of each activation signal for each location within each pairing, determining whether the relative timing of activation signals falls within plausible biological parameters, defining the leading signal of the pair for each electrogram activation within the respective analysis time period; and assigning a series of lea

  • Publication number: 20030164817
    Abstract: A method and system for directly manipulating cells in an electronic spreadsheet program or the like. After the user has selected the cells to be manipulated, the user merely positions the cursor over any part of the outside border of the selected group of cells, depresses and holds down a predefined mouse button, drags the border to a new location and then releases the mouse button, Depending upon which mouse button or control key was depressed, the user may be presented with options such as whether the manipulation should be to move or copy the selected cells, or the selected cells may be moved and no option presented. Depending upon which control key was depressed or upon the location of the repositioned border, the selected cells may be pasted over existing cells, or they may be inserted into the spreadsheet causing the existing cells to be shifted right and/or down.

  • Patent number: 6016488
    Abstract: These and other objects, which will be apparent as the invention is more fully described, are provided by a method and system for constructing queries which make changes to an entire set of data stored in a database. In a preferred embodiment of the present invention, a user selects one or more tables from which to construct a query. Next, the system stores a list box for each selected table. Each list box is displayed on a user interface including a query window which includes an upper portion and a lower portion. The user selects one or more columns from the list boxes and drags the selected columns into a QBE grid located in the lower portion of the query window. The QBE grid provides a graphical representation of the query requested by the user. When the user invokes the query, the system determines the query type and performs appropriate action on the selected column from the selected tables.

  • Patent number: 5481667
    Abstract: A method and computer system for coaching a user how to perform application program tasks is provided. The user activates the coaching program of the present invention while an application program is running on the computer system. If the user needs such assistance, the coaching program helps the user determine the next task the user wishes to perform in the application program. The coaching program then determines if the application program is in the correct state for performance of the next task. If the application program is not in the correct state, the coaching program guides the user through performing essential preliminary tasks that place the application program in the correct state for performance of the next task. The computer system simultaneously displays on the display screen output, such as application program instructions, generated by the coaching program and a user interface display generated by the application program.
