  3. Coags--Computerized Oral Anticoagulation Guidance System

    SBC: Automated Control Systems,            Topic: N/A

    The International Normalized Ratio (INR) is designed to standardize the reporting of prothrombin timeasurements in patients taking warfarin. To appropriately manage patients taking anticoagulants, abe achieved between too much or too little anticoagulation, which can respectively result in bleedinVariability and bias in INR determinations leads to errors in therapeutic management. Quantitative ema ...

  4. Steerable Hyperthermia EM Phased Array Applicator

    SBC: Bsd Medical Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The cancer treatment modality called "hyperthermia" has been used to successfully treat thousands of cancer patients around the world. However, hyperthermia has never achieved its true potential because of technical limitations in steering and focusing the heating pattern. The goal is the solution of some of those problems. To do so, we will build and test an elliptical 24 dipole phased array appl ...

  5. Stand Alone Uterine Manipulator

    SBC: Clinical Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Although uterine manipulators have been used in many forms for a number of years, all of theexisting manipulators have different limitations. With the increasing pressure for cost containment andthe increasing popularity of laparoscopic gynecological procedures moving to the outpatient clinic andGYN office, a cost-effective uterine manipulator that can be easily used by he laparoscopist is veryatt ...

  6. Fetal Oximetry Probe

    SBC: Clinical Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Although widely practiced as the current standard of care, electronic fetal monitoring (EFM) has noimproved fetal outcomes. This is partially due to difficulties inherent in fetal heart rate and continterpretation. Oxygen saturation through pulse oximetry has become a standard for detection of hypoill patient. The addition of fetal oxygen saturation to the currently available EFM information hasin ...

  7. Lipoprotein Analyzer Based on Principles of Flow FFF

    SBC: Fffractionation, Llc.            Topic: N/A

    Development of a Lipoprotein Analyzer system is proposed for rapid analysis of and characterization of the HDL, LDL, and VLDL profiles of human blood plasma. Preliminary results using a prototype system demonstrated the potential of the proposed system: the HDL, and VLDL fractions were clearly separated, plasma samples were analyzed without sample pre-treatment, and differences in lipoprotein prof ...

  8. Gravitational FFF System for Determination of Blood Path

    SBC: Fffractionation, Llc.            Topic: N/A

    Development of a sensitive, yet ultra-low cost analytical system for determination of blood patholothalassemia, sickle cell anemia, and microfilarial infestations is proposed. This technology is baseField-Flow Fractionation and utilizes the simplest FFF system using only the Earth's gravitational f(gravitational Field-Flow Fractionation) channel is simple, encouraging results for blood cell charab ...

  9. Pediatric Computerized Severity Index

    SBC: Int'l Severity Information            Topic: N/A

    Our objective is to develop a valid and reliable tool to assess the severity of illness of criticallyill pediatric patients. Severity is to be measured on a disease-specific basis by assessing the patient'sphysiologic condition. Performance of treatments will not affect measurement of the patient's severityof illness. The index will provide an overall patient severity level that accounts for the e ...

  10. Lung Metabolic Monitor

    SBC: MEDICAL PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The major rationale for the development of a lung metabolic monitor (LMM) is the need for a markerendothelial injury and lung inflammation such as that involved in Adult Respiratory Distress Syndromused for lung metabolic fraction (LMF) measurement involve the measurements of whole-body O2 consumpand O2 consumption by the Fick principle (V-O2Fick). The approach is based on the premise that V-O2FV- ...
