  • Publication number: 20240070511
    Abstract: Qubit predictability services for a quantum computing system are disclosed. In one example, a processor device of a computing system receives qubit utilization data that encodes a utilization history for each qubit in a set of qubits of a QCS. The processor device further performs one or more hypothesis tests for each qubit of the set of qubits based on the utilization history for the qubit and a set of quantum algorithms. The processor device further generates one or more predictability scores for each qubit of the set of qubits based on the one or more hypothesis tests for the set of qubits. The processor device further provides an indication of the one or more predictability scores for each qubit of the set of qubits to the QCS.

  • Publication number: 20220370087
    Abstract: Provided herein are methods for protecting distal vessels from emboli during aspiration, the method comprising delivery and deployment of an emboli protection device which is advanced and placed distally relative to the clot burden and thus deep in the neurovascular bed until the device, once deployed, fully opposes a vessel wall creating a circumferential seal across the vessel. The methods utilizing the emboli protection device protect distal vasculature from vulnerable clot emboli which become dislodged during clot removal and/or aspiration and trapped in the emboli protection device.

  • Patent number: 11019986
    Abstract: A bronchoscopic sheath adapted to be fit over the outside surface of the proximal portion of a bronchoscope to assist with measuring or spacing of treatment. The measurement or spacing sheath is preferably made of braided polymer filament and is configured to collapse under tension and open/expand when the ends of the sheath are pushed towards one-another. Markings are provided on the sheath at regular intervals to reflect distance. The markings may be woven into the braid, or printed on the exterior of the braid. The proximal end of the sheath may be flared and the distal end may be tapered. Each end may be provided with a cuff that may be part of the braid, or a separate elastomeric material, or a thermally sealed edge with atraumatic tip.
