  • Patent number: 8033281
    Abstract: There is provided a patient care and treatment platform that is connectable to a plurality of modules capable of providing medical functionality. The platform includes a housing and a patient support surface. The platform also includes a power receiver for receiving power. The platform further includes a module interface including power, data, and pneumatic spines having power data and pneumatic ports, respectively. The spines are operative to transfer data, power, and fluid within the platform. The ports are connectable to the modules to integrate the modules into the platform. The platform also includes a head fairing having a patient interface panel. The head fairing includes an inner surface that is substantially concave in shape and slopes away from the patient support surface to allow access to the head of a patient. The patient interface panel includes a plurality of ports connectable to electrical and pneumatic apparatus.

  • Patent number: 7818840
    Abstract: There is provided a foldable, portable, trauma treatment and monitoring patient platform. The patient platform includes an upper housing body including a top surface and an upper patient support surface. The patient platform also includes a lower housing body including a rear surface and a lower patient support surface. The upper and lower patient support surfaces are cooperative to collectively support a patient. The lower housing and upper housing are in pivotal communication to enable selective articulation about a pivoting axis between a closed orientation and an open orientation. In the closed orientation, the upper patient support surface is substantially flush with the lower patient support surface. In the open orientation, the upper patient support surface and lower patient support surface are substantially co-planar. A bay capable of receiving at least one medical monitoring/treatment unit is located within at least one of the upper and lower housing bodies.

  • Publication number: 20090124864
    Abstract: There is provided a central control network for a patient care and treatment device comprising data and power networks with data and power ports, respectively. A power receiver is in electrical communication with the power network and receives power from a power source. A control unit is in electrical communication with the data and power networks and transmits operational instructions along the data network. The device additionally comprises at least one medical module including a medical device capable of performing discrete medical functionality. The module further includes data and power connectors connectable to the data and power ports, respectively. A data adapter is in electrical communication with the data connector and the medical device and translates communications between the data network and the medical device. A power adapter receives power from the power network via the power connector and converts the power according to the medical device power requirements.

  • Publication number: 20090124868
    Abstract: There is provided a portable, lightweight, trauma treatment and patient monitoring device. The device comprises a base having a top surface and a pair of housings each having an inner surface. The housings are in pivotal communication with the base to enable selective articulation between a closed orientation and an open orientation. In the closed orientation, the inner surfaces of the housings are substantially parallel to the top surface of the base. In the open orientation, the pair of housings are in spaced opposed relation to each other and the inner surfaces are substantially perpendicular to the top surface of the base. The device also includes at least one bay located within at least one of the pair of housings. The bay is capable of receiving at least one medical monitoring/treatment device.

  • Patent number: 6234172
    Abstract: A transportable life support system for providing medical care to a patient while transporting the patient from one location to another has a platform configured to receive the patient, a plurality of medical devices attached to the platform for providing medical monitoring and medical therapy to the patient, and a control and display panel comprising controls and displays for the medical devices. The control and display panel provides a centralized location for monitoring and controlling the medical devices so as to mitigate a need for an operator to move about the platform in order to individually observe a display for each medical device and to individually control each medical device.
