SELF-ADHERING NONINVASIVE INTRAUTERINE PRESSURE MONITOR

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1993 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Joseph A Orr
Award Amount: $427,091.00
Abstract:
Fetal monitoring is useful in assessing the progress of labor and for detection of preterm labor, a leading cause of fetal mortality and morbidity. commercially available sensors for monitoring intrauterine contractions use cumbersome belts and large and bulky sensors which are uncomforatable and… More

Signal Processing/Automation for Cardiac Output Monitor

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Joseph Orr
Award Amount: $75,000.00
Abstract:
Thermal dilution is by far the most common method of measuring cardiac output. Over onemillion thermodilution pulmonary artery catheters are used each year in the U.S. We have appliedartificial neural networks to improve the accuracy of the thermal dilution cardiac output measurementand allow using… More
