  • Patent number: 11826129
    Abstract: A technology for obtaining a heart rate from a photoplethysmogram (PPG) signal. In one example, an artificial neural network model can be trained to predict a heart rate using a training dataset containing PPG data. The artificial neural network model can include a series of convolutional layers to remove artifacts from a PPG signal, a fast Fourier transform (FFT) layer to convert the PPG signal to PPG frequency representations, and a dense layer to decode the PPG frequency representations to heart rate predictions. After training the artificial neural network model, PPG data generated by a pulse oximeter monitor can be obtained, and the PPG data can be input to the artificial neural network model. The artificial neural network model outputs a heart rate prediction, wherein the heart rate prediction represents the heart rate obtained from the PPG signal.

  • Patent number: 11747458
    Abstract: A FCFMSIL radar includes a SILO, a frequency conversion unit, an antenna unit, a demodulation unit and a processing unit. The frequency conversion unit converts an oscillation signal of the SILO into a FMCW signal. The antenna unit transmits the FMCW signal to an area as a transmitted signal and receives a reflected signal from the area as a received signal. The frequency conversion unit converts the received signal into an injection signal and injects it into the SILO. The demodulation unit demodulates the oscillation signal into an in-phase demodulated signal and a quadrature demodulated signal. The processing unit processes the in-phase and the quadrature demodulated signals to obtain a baseband signal and thus acquire a phase and a frequency of a tone in the frequency-domain baseband signal, and determines the tone corresponding to one or multiple objects based on the phase and frequency of the tone.

  • Patent number: 11737690
    Abstract: A device includes an optical circuit that obtains a first signal at a first wavelength using light reflected from skin tissue of a patient, wherein the first wavelength has a high absorption coefficient for nitric oxide (NO) in blood flow and a second PPG signal at a second wavelength using light reflected from skin tissue of the patient, wherein the second wavelength has a low absorption coefficient for NO in blood flow. A measurement of a level of NO in blood flow is determined using the first PPG signal and the second PPG signal. A health condition is determined using the measurement of the level of NO, such as hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia.

  • Patent number: 11730420
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure describe methods, systems, and computer storage media for detecting sepsis in a maternal patient and causing for display a visual indicator of a graphical object. In some aspects sepsis may be detected based on a maternal patient's patient information and/or clinical diagnostic. Technologies described herein may be used to determine maternal-fetal sepsis and provide a graphical object of a patient's risk of the maternal-fetal sepsis. The visual indicator and graphical object may be identifiable to a clinician as a warning of a risk for maternal-fetal sepsis. In this way, maternal-fetal sepsis may be identified and a graphical object may be generated, facilitating timely treatment and early diagnosis of maternal-fetal sepsis.
