  • Publication number: 20240082516
    Abstract: A system for providing continuous positive air pressure therapy is provided. The system includes a patient interface, a flow generator, a sensor, and a computing device. Wireless transceivers allow wireless communication between the computing device and the flow generator and/or patient interface. Sensor data is communicated to the computing device and a leak determination is made by the computing device based on the sensor data. If a leak is detected, then troubleshooting options for correcting the leak are displayed to the patient on a display of the computing device. The troubleshooting options may be selected based on the sensed data, the type of patient interface, the type of flow generator, or characteristics of the patient using the device.

  • Patent number: 11808783
    Abstract: Atomic force microscopy apparatus and method that enable observing charge generation transients with nanometer spatial resolution and nanosecond to picosecond time resolution, the timescale relevant for studying photo-generated charges in the world's highest efficiency photovoltaic films. The AFM apparatus includes an AFM, a light source for illumination of a sample operatively coupled to the AFM, a voltage source operatively coupled to the AFM, and a control circuitry operatively coupled to the light source and the voltage source. The AFM apparatus improves the time resolution and enables rapid acquisition of photocapacitance transients in a wide array of solar-energy-harvesting materials.

  • Publication number: 20230064475
    Abstract: A drift is inserted into a first end of a first pipe and a first actuator is pressed against a second end of the first pipe. A valve in the first actuator is opened and a valve in a second actuator is closed. When a vacuum is turned on, suction is applied to the first actuator, drawing the drift through the first pipe. The drift is removed from the second end and inserted into a second end of a second pipe. The second actuator is pressed against a first end of the second pipe. The valve in the first actuator is closed, the valve in the second actuator is opened, and suction is applied, drawing the drift through the second pipe. The back-and-forth process is repeated for each of a number of pipes. If the drift encounters an obstruction, the pipe can be set aside for further inspection.

  • Patent number: 11330096
    Abstract: One disclosed method includes filtering incoming emergency data using at least one filtering criteria, as the emergency data is received in response to initiation of emergency events; generating at least one data bin representing a tally of emergency data meeting the at least one filtering criteria, without storing any of the emergency data used to generate the at least one data bin; and generating a statistical report using the at least one data bin. The statistical report may be generated real-time and displayed on a remote display.

  • Publication number: 20210388533
    Abstract: Strengthening the dry and wet tenacity of regenerated cellulosic fibers can be performed through the addition of an aldaric acid, such as (but not limited to) glucaric acid. In some embodiments, regenerated cellulosic fibers that include an aldaric acid or a salt thereof, produced by the disclosed methods are also described. The produced fibers have advantageous properties due at least in part to the inclusion of the aldaric acid.

  • Publication number: 20150231654
    Abstract: A material spraying machine is disclosed herein, for example, as the machine may be used to spray flock material. In an example, the material spraying machine includes a hopper configured to hold a material to be sprayed. An agitator in the hopper moves the material from the hopper into an airlock. Vanes in the airlock move the material into an airstream generated by the blower, wherein the material is discharged through an outlet without coming into contact with a blower. The machine is described herein for purposes of illustration as it may be used to spray flock material. However, the machine may have other applications and be used in other industries, including but not limited to, blow-in insulation, confetti, mulch, glitter, etc.
