|20150316404||MEASUREMENT OF FLUID VOLUME OF A BLOOD OXYGENATOR IN AN EXTRACORPOREAL CIRCUIT - The present disclosure provides a method and apparatus for measuring or monitoring oxygenator blood volume of a treatment device such as an oxygenator by analyzing an indicator passing through the oxygenator blood volume. Measuring the oxygenator blood volume can be done externally of the vein or artery, or in tubing leading to a blood treatment system which carries the blood exterior of the body of the patient or within the body of the patient. The present system can also monitor tubing volume of flowing blood upstream or downstream of the blood treatment device. The present system thus provides for measuring the volume of an extracorporeal circuit and creates an opportunity to control circuit performance and give an early warning of clotting to improve the quality of a variety of extracorporeal procedures with the use of relatively simple technology.||11-05-2015|
|20120316447||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DIVERTING FLOW TO FACILITATE MEASUREMENT OF SYSTEM PARAMETERS - A method facilitating the measurement of hemodynamic parameters by injection of an indicator in an indicator dilution technique using an extracorporeal circuit connected to a patient, includes reducing a pressure spike associated with the introduction of the indicator into the extracorporeal circuit. The method diverts blood flow during an indicator introduction and then returns the diverted blood back into the extracorporeal circuit after the introduction is completed.||12-13-2012|
|20120165689||CATHETER WITH COMMON GUIDE WIRE AND INDICATOR LUMEN - A catheter for retrograde orientation in a blood flow is used to determine the blood flow rate by thermodilution measurements. The determination of the blood flow rate accommodates injectate induced thermal influences on a dilution thermal sensor, wherein the thermal influences can occur prior to introduction of the injectate into the blood flow.||06-28-2012|
|20090143673||TRANSIT TIME ULTRASONIC FLOW MEASUREMENT - A transcutaneous energy transfer system with subcutaneous non coupled coils is used to transmit power and signals to an implanted biological support device or sensor, such as a flow sensor for measuring relatively low flow rates, such as hydrocephalic shunt flow. The flow sensor is configured to convert a shear wave generated by a transducer to a longitudinal wave at the interface of a signal pathway and the flow, wherein the longitudinal wave travels parallel to the flow and exits a flow channel to convert to a shear wave which intersects a second transducer. The transcutaneous energy transfer employs a pair of inductive coupling coils, wherein the coils are disposed in zero coupling orientation which can include a perpendicular orientation of corresponding coil axes.||06-04-2009|
