  • Publication number: 20210023317
    Abstract: An adapter for use in conjunction with a tracheostomy tube and/or its attachments is disclosed. It is adapted to complement conventional tracheostomy tubes and monitor and measure an assortment of breathing parameters, through one or more sensors, such as thermistors, microphones and the like. In order to evaluate whether there is a problem in the patient's airway (e.g., an obstruction), the data from the sensors is compared. By incorporating an alarm system as part of, or in conjunction with, the present invention, healthcare providers can be better able to quickly react to potential problems in the patient's airway.

  • Publication number: 20200289783
    Abstract: A humidification system for delivering humidified gases to a user can include a heater base, humidification chamber having an inlet, outlet, and associated fluid conduit, and breathing circuit including a supply conduit, inspiratory conduit, and optional expiratory conduit. The humidification system can include various features to help make set-up less difficult and time-consuming. For example, the supply conduit, inspiratory conduit, and optional expiratory conduit can be coupled into a one-piece circuit to aid set-up. Various components can be color-coded and can have corresponding structures to indicate which components should be connected to one another during set-up. Such features can also help make the set-up process more intuitive for an operator, which can reduce the need for specialized training and reduce the number of potential errors.

  • Patent number: 10577666
    Abstract: Molecular markers associated with soybean reproductive stage, methods of their use, and compositions having one or more marker loci are provided. Methods comprise detecting at least one marker locus, detecting a haplotype, and/or detecting a marker profile. Methods may further comprise crossing a selected soybean plant with a second soybean plant. Isolated polynucleotides, primers, probes, kits, systems, etc., are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20150209615
    Abstract: A system for increasing the fitness level of a fitness enthusiast. The system includes a personalized set of intensity zones corresponding to increasing levels of exercise intensity. The personalization of the system is accomplished through the determination of a first and second anchor point based on changes in the rate of change of an individual's heart rate as exercise stress is increased. Values for a plurality of zones are determined based on at least one of said anchor points. Each zone corresponds to a multiplier that when factored in to the amount time spent in each zone by the individual, yields a total training load value for the individual as the individual exercises.

  • Patent number: 8092381
    Abstract: A system for increasing the fitness level of a fitness enthusiast. The system includes a personalized set of intensity zones corresponding to increasing levels of exercise intensity. The personalization of the system is accomplished through determining a threshold level based on oxygen consumption or a numerical rating of perception of effort or lactate or metabolism that is unique to each individual. From this determination, an anchor point is created upon which the heart rate values for each of eight zones is based. Each zone corresponds to a multiplier that when factored in to the amount time spent in each zone by the individual, yields a total training load value.

  • Patent number: 5493794
    Abstract: A combination snowshoe and binding, wherein the binding cooperates upon the snowshoe, for evenly distributing a user's weight thereupon. The binding includes an outboard half and an inboard half, the outboard half being horizontally movable upon the inboard half, in a slidable manner. The outboard half remains loosely coupled upon a pivoting member and moves freely in a horizontal direction, to accommodate the foot widths of a variety of users. The inboard half remains stationary, while in use, but can loosened, and adjusted in a horizontal direction. By moving the inboard half to a desired adjustment position, a proper positioning for evenly distributing a user's weight upon the snowshoe can be achieved. The snowshoe further includes an asymmetric frame member for allowing a user to walk with a normal stride upon a snowy surface.
