  • Patent number: 11123470
    Abstract: A cardioplegic agent delivery system comprises a supply reservoir (40) for a cardioplegic agent carrier fluid, a delivery channel from the supply reservoir (40) to an outlet (48), and a pump (50) to flow the carrier liquid in the delivery channel above a minimum driving pressure. The supply reservoir (40) is configured to hold carrier fluid below the minimum driving pressure. The pump (50) is a centrifugal pump configured to receive carrier fluid from the supply reservoir (40) and to flow the carrier fluid to the outlet (48) at a flow rate and above the minimum driving pressure for the delivery of cardioplegic agent. This allows cardioplegia delivery to be managed better.

  • Publication number: 20210289002
    Abstract: Disclosed are various examples that relate to adjusting a stringency of offline policy restrictions based on a situational context of a computing device. In one example, a system can receive an offline restriction policy for an application. The system can identify a request to execute an application during the offline period of time. A situational context of the computing device can be determined. A first application restriction can be enforced for the application on the computing device based on the identification of the computing device being in the offline period of time and the situational context. A change in the situational context of the computing device can be identified during the offline period of time based on a detection of a second condition. A second application restriction can be enforced for the application on the computing device during the offline period of time.

  • Patent number: 11116961
    Abstract: A control system in a blood line (12) of a cardiopulmonary bypass perfusion system (1) comprises a flow sensor (26) to determine a flow value indicative of the flow rate, a controller configured to process the flow value, and an adjustable restriction (28) responsive to the controller, to reduce the flow rate in the venous blood line (12) to maintain a flow rate to the venous blood reservoir that does not exceed a restriction threshold. As the adjustable restriction (28) is responsive to the flow sensor (26), this provides a closed loop control mechanism that avoids restricting the blood line (12) of the perfusion system (1) more than intended.

  • Patent number: 11067562
    Abstract: The invention relates to methods for nanopore sequencing. A substrate such as a semiconductor is provided having a nanopore or an array of nanopores connecting an upper solution with a lower solution. A polymerase-nucleic acid complex comprising a strand displacing DNA polymerase and a circular nucleic acid template and components required for DNA synthesis are provided. The polymerase produces a nascent DNA strand complementary to the circular nucleic acid template and this nascent strand is translocated through the nanopore while it is being produced by a polymerase-nucleic acid complex comprising a strand displacing DNA polymerase and a circular nucleic acid template and providing the components required for DNA synthesis whereby the polymerase produces a nascent DNA strand which is translocated through the nanopore while the nascent DNA strand is being produced. The sequence of the nascent DNA strand is determined while it translates through the pore using the measured current over time.

  • Patent number: 11050791
    Abstract: Disclosed are various examples that relate to adjusting a stringency of offline policy restrictions based on a situational context of a computing device. In one example, a system can receive an offline restriction policy for an application. The offline restriction policy comprises one or more rules that are associated with one or more actions. The system can cause the one or more actions to be performed during an offline period of time in an instance in which one of the rules is satisfied. The offline period of time representing time periods when the system does not have a network connection with a management system. The system can cause a first authentication action to be performed in an instance in which a first condition of the system satisfies a first rule. The system can also cause a second authentication action to be performed in an instance in which a second condition of the system satisfies a second rule.

  • Patent number: 11033672
    Abstract: A control system controlling the blood flow rate in a blood supply system (1) in which a pump (18) transports blood from a reservoir (10) toward multiple outlets (30, 26, 26a) of which one or more outlets are openable to permit flow and closable to block flow, wherein the control system comprises a monitoring arrangement (22, 32, 32a) to determine the flow rate through a first outlet (30), and a controller responsive to the monitoring arrangement and controlling the pump (18) to maintain the flow rate through the first outlet (30) at a pre-determined level. This allows a flow rate through the first outlet to be maintained independently of any active blood diversions.

  • Publication number: 20210113755
    Abstract: An oxygenator (10) for an extracorporeal ventilation system comprises a gas passage and a blood passage arranged to allow gas exchange of an oxygenation gas supply with blood via a gas-blood interface (34). The gas passage leads from a gas inlet zone (28) via the gas-blood interface (34) to a gas exhaust zone (40). The blood passage leads from a blood inlet (12) via the gas-blood interface (34) to a blood outlet (14). The oxygenator comprises a supply gas distribution arrangement (26, 28A, 28B). This allows the oxygenation gas supply to be modulated differently for different interface regions of the gas-blood interface. The oxygenator can be used to remove or reduce the formation of gaseous microemboli bubbles.
