  • Publication number: 20210105604
    Abstract: In order to establish a mesh network, an electronic device may iteratively identify one or more mesh-network nodes and may determine associated duty-cycle ratios based on communication with the one or more mesh-network nodes. In particular, the electronic device may select candidate mesh-network nodes based on estimated throughput metrics of their communication with a root device in the mesh network. Then, for each of the candidate mesh-network nodes, the electronic device may associate with a given candidate mesh-network node, and may measure the throughput of the given candidate mesh-network node during a time interval by communicating packets. Based on comparisons of the measured throughputs, the electronic device may identify the one or more mesh-network nodes in the candidate mesh-network nodes and may determine the associated duty-cycle ratios. Subsequently, the electronic device communicates information with the root device via the one or more mesh-network nodes based on the duty-cycle ratios.

  • Publication number: 20210008313
    Abstract: An automatic ventilator adjusting system has a three-way inline adapter coupled to 1) a breath sample line, 2) a ventilator (either invasive or non-invasive), and 3) a patient. The breath sample line is coupled to a Gas Exchange Monitor (GEM) and preferably has a female Luer lock end. Ventilator settings can be automatically set and/or adjusted using 1) an algorithm preferably having a feedback loop and 2) inputs including one or more of: gPaO2™ (calculated arterial partial pressure of O2 by GEM), oxygen deficit, gPaCO2™ (calculated arterial partial pressure of CO2), gPaCO2™/gPaO2™, PiO2-PETO2, TLC (Total Lung Capacity), FRC (Functional Residual Capacity), and Vd/Vt (deadspace ratio). Preferably, one or more of the inputs (e.g., gPaO2™ gPaCO2™, and oxygen deficit) are obtained non-invasively from a patient's normal breathing gas samples as calculated by MediPines Gas Exchange Monitor (GEM).

  • Publication number: 20200269003
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for obtaining respiratory gas in steady state breathing with minimum contamination of atmospheric air. The breathed air is obtained using a breathing tube having two openings, a breathing opening with an oval shape and an atmospheric opening with a circular shape. The breathed air is passed through a breathing passageway between two openings with laminar flow, and further passed through a sampling hole disposed on the atmospheric opening and coupled to a sampling tube extended halfway into the breathing passageway through the sampling hole.

  • Publication number: 20190175862
    Abstract: The present invention provides a breathing tube assembly for measuring respiratory gases from a patient. The breathing tube has been optimized for the side-sampling of respiratory gases from steady-state breathing. The breathing tube assembly comprises a breathing tube having three openings, breathing, atmospheric and sample openings. By using breathing and atmospheric openings, a patient can breathe normally to reach to steady state breathing. The sampling tube is coupled with a transport tube, allowing the breathed air traveling through the transport tube. An end of the transport tube away from the breathing tube is connected to a monitor to analyze patient's breathing air.

  • Publication number: 20190026353
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods and apparatuses to provide a redo repeater that allows for no data loss protection without the performance impact to the primary database even when a significant geographical distance separates the primary and standby databases. The Repeater is a lightweight entity that receives redo from the primary database with the purpose of redistributing that redo throughout the primary/standby system configuration. The Repeater able to extend no data loss protection and switchover functionality to terminal standby databases even though the primary database does not need to have a direct connection with those destinations.

  • Patent number: 9778953
    Abstract: A method and system for discovering dependencies, configurations and utilizations among IT resources are disclosed. A discovery team writes a prediscovery script without requesting credentials and sends it to a system administrator (SA) who already has necessary credentials to execute the prediscovery script. Then, the SA reviews the prediscovery script and executes the prediscovery script on a target server. While or after executing the prediscovery script, the target server generates a result of an execution of the prediscovery script and provides the result to an analysis system. The analysis system analyzes and parses the result and generates a user-friendly data (e.g., graph or spreadsheet) that represents the result. Then, the analysis system provides the user-friendly data to the discovery team. The analysis system does not require credentials and does not directly communicate with the target server except receiving the result of the executed prediscovery script from the target server.
