System And Method For Quantifying Lung Compliance In A Self-Ventilating Subject

View page
US Patent:
20120145154, Jun 14, 2012
Filed:
Jul 30, 2010
Appl. No.:
13/386434
Inventors:
Leonardo Alberto Baloa Welzien - Pittsburgh PA, US
Nathan Francis O'Connor - Monroeville PA, US
Assignee:
KONINKLIJKE PHILIPS ELECTRONICS N.V. - EINDHOVEN
International Classification:
A61M 16/00
US Classification:
12820423, 12820418
Abstract:
The lung compliance of a subject that is at least partially self-ventilating is determined. The quantification of lung compliance may be an estimation, a measurement, and/or an approximate measurement. The quantification of lung compliance may be enhanced over conventional techniques and/or systems for quantifying lung compliance of self-ventilating subjects in the lung compliance may be quantified relatively accurately without an effort belt or other external sensing device that directly measures diaphragmatic muscle pressure, and without requiring the subject to manually control diaphragmatic muscle pressure. Quantification of lung compliance may be a useful tool in evaluating the health of the subject, including detection of fluid retention associated with developing acute congestive heart failure.

US Patent:
20120157872, Jun 21, 2012
Filed:
Jul 30, 2010
Appl. No.:
13/393263
Inventors:
Leonardo Alberto Baloa Welzien - Pittsburgh PA, US
Nathan Francis O'Connor - Monroeville PA, US
Assignee:
KONINKLIJKE PHILIPS ELECTRONICS, N.V. - EINDHOVEN
International Classification:
A61B 5/085
US Classification:
600533

System And Method For Estimating Upper Airway Resistance And Lung Compliance Employing Induced Central Apneas

View page
US Patent:
20130109993, May 2, 2013
Filed:
Apr 27, 2011
Appl. No.:
13/696922
Inventors:
Nathan Francis O'Connor - Monroeville PA, US
Assignee:
Koninklijke Philips Electronics N.V. - Eindhoven
International Classification:
A61B 5/085
A61B 5/08
A61M 16/00
A61B 5/097
A61B 5/087
A61B 5/00
US Classification:
600533
Abstract:
A method of estimating upper airway resistance or lung compliance of a patient is provided that includes inducing a central apnea in the patient, providing a known pressure stimulus comprising a flow of breathing gas having a known pressure level to the patient while the patient is experiencing the central apnea, determining a patient flow-related parameter, such as flow rate and/or flow volume, associated with the known pressure stimulus, and estimating the upper airway resistance or the lung compliance of the patient using the patient flow-related parameter using, for example and without limitation, an input-output system identification method.

System And Method Of Providing Feedback To A Subject Receiving Respiratory Therapy Via A Client Device Associated With The Subject

View page
US Patent:
20130269700, Oct 17, 2013
Filed:
Dec 13, 2011
Appl. No.:
13/995189
Inventors:
Manuel Laura Lapoint - Pittsburgh PA, US
Nathan Francis O'Connor - Monroeville PA, US
Assignee:
KONINKLIJKE PHILIPS ELECTRONICS N.V. - EINDHOVEN
International Classification:
A61M 16/00
A61M 16/04
A61M 16/06
A61M 16/12
A61M 16/08
US Classification:
12820523
Abstract:
Feedback information is provided to a subject regarding reception of pressure support therapy, and/or other respiratory support therapy. The feedback information may indicate compliance to a respiratory therapy regimen. The feedback information is provided to the subject by transmitting the feedback information through a communication network to a client device associated with the subject. The feedback information may include a characterization of the therapy received by the subject with respect to a usage goal.

Childbirth Labor Coach With Paced Breathing

View page
US Patent:
20140007877, Jan 9, 2014
Filed:
Mar 13, 2012
Appl. No.:
14/006343
Inventors:
Nathan Francis O'Connor - Monroeville PA, US
Assignee:
KONINKLIJKE PHILIPS N.V. - EINDHOVEN
International Classification:
A61M 16/00
US Classification:
12820423
Abstract:
A system () configured to prompt a subject () to consciously alter one or more breathing parameters during childbirth. The system includes a pressure generator () that generates a pressurized flow of breathable gas for delivery to an airway of the subject during childbirth and a processor () that controls the pressure generator to adjust one or more gas parameters of the gas in the pressurized flow of breathable gas to provide breathing cues to the subject in accordance with a breathing regime associated with labor contractions, wherein the breathing cues prompt the subject to consciously alter one or more breathing parameters of respiration.

Sensor And Valve Integrated Into A Patient Interface

View page
US Patent:
20140069429, Mar 13, 2014
Filed:
May 11, 2012
Appl. No.:
14/115932
Inventors:
Christopher Scott Lucci - Murrysville PA, US
Harol Allen Lockhart - Mt. Pleasant PA, US
Nathan Francis O'Connor - Monroeville PA, US
Assignee:
KONINKLIJKE PHILIPS N.V. - EINDHOVEN
International Classification:
A61M 16/20
US Classification:
12820421
Abstract:
An improved patient interface assembly and pressure support system integrate a pressure sensor and a valve into the patient interface assembly and employs closed loop control between the sensor and the valve in order to limit delay between the time at which a condition indicative of abnormal breathing or flow load during normal breathing is experienced by a patient and the time at which altered pressure support is received by the patient.
