  • Publication number: 20210330188
    Abstract: A patient monitoring device can be configured to provide fast and reliable physiological measurements in a variety of care settings including at a patient's home. The device can include a compact, standalone monitor with telehealth capabilities as well as an intuitive interface for use at home. The device can include a blood pressure, capnography, or pulse oximetry module. A device can include a sleek and continuous outer surface that is easy to clean and generally free of crevices, holes, or surfaces that collect external contaminants. For example, portions of the housing can connect together using a limited number of screws, thereby limiting a number of holes. The device can include a vent cover that can be rotated to reconfigure the function of the vent cover. For example, the vent cover can function as a stabilization feature and/or a cover for a ventilation hole, while permitting exhaust through the ventilation hole.

  • Patent number: 11096631
    Abstract: A multi-parameter patient monitoring device rack can dock a plurality of patient monitor modules and can communicate with a separate display unit. A signal processing unit can be incorporated into the device rack. A graphics processing unit can be attached to the display unit. The device rack and the graphic display unit can have improved heat dissipation and drip-proof features. The multi-parameter patient monitoring device rack can provide interchangeability and versatility to a multi-parameter patient monitoring system by allowing use of different display units and monitoring of different combinations of parameters. A dual-use patient monitor module can have its own display unit configured for displaying one or more parameters when used as a stand-alone device, and can be docked into the device rack when a handle on the module is folded down.

  • Publication number: 20200330037
    Abstract: An assembly for enabling a caregiver to secure a physiological monitoring device to an arm of a user can include the physiological monitoring device a cradle configured to removably secure to the physiological monitoring device and to the user's arm. The physiological monitoring device can include a first connector port configured to electrically connect to a first cable and a first locking tab movable between an extended position and a retracted position. The cradle can include a base, first and second sidewalls, a back wall connected to the base and the first and second sidewalls. The cradle can further include a first opening in the back wall configured to receive the first connector port and a second opening in the first sidewall configured to receive the first locking tab when the physiological monitoring device is secured to the cradle and the first locking tab is in the extended position.

  • Publication number: 20200253519
    Abstract: A reusable sensor is disclosed for producing a signal indicative of at least one physiological parameter of tissue. The sensor can include a sensor housing that has a distal opening, a wire lumen, and a proximal opening. The distal opening can include a lumen extending through the body of the sensor housing and the wire lumen can be located on the outside of the sensor housing. The sensor can also include a first component located on a top surface of the sensor housing and along the pathway of the wire lumen. The sensor can also include a second component located on the bottom surface of the sensor housing opposite of the first component. The second component can also be located along the pathway of the wire lumen. The sensor can also include a wire coaxially disposed within the wire lumen and connecting the first component and second component.

  • Publication number: 20200163598
    Abstract: A regional oximetry sensor can have a sensor head configured to secure to skin of a user and a stem extending from the sensor head. The sensor head can include an emitter configured to transmit optical radiation into the skin and at least one detector configured to receive the optical radiation after attenuation by blood flow within the skin. The stem can be configured to transmit electrical signals from the sensor head to a cable. A plurality of notches can extend from a perimeter of the sensor head towards an interior thereof. The plurality of notches can form a plurality of independently flexible cutouts in the sensor head configured to allow for movement of at least a portion of the skin of the user underlying the sensor head when the regional oximetry sensor is in use.

  • Patent number: 10617335
    Abstract: A regional oximetry sensor has a sensor head attachable to a patient skin surface so as to transmit optical radiation into the skin and receive that optical radiation after attenuation by blood flow within the skin. The sensor includes windows that press into the skin to maximize optical transmission. A stem extending from the sensor head transmits electrical signals between the sensor head and an attached cable. In a peel resistant configuration, the stem is terminated interior to the sensor head and away from a sensor head edge so as to define feet along either side of the stem distal the stem termination. The stem interior termination transforms a peel load on a sensor head adhesive to less challenging tension and shear loads on the sensor head adhesive.
