TODAY’S PATENT – PATIENT MONITORING SYSTEM
The Patient monitoring system was invented by Marcelo M. Lamego Massi and Joe E. Kiani on the 9th of December 2012, bearing patent number US20210378522A1.The current assignee is Masimo Corp, which is a global medical technology company based in California.
A patient monitoring system consists an inflatable cuff, a gas reservoir containing a compressed gas, and a sensor. When the inflatable cuff is coupled to a wearer, the gas reservoir supplies gas to the inflatable cuff to inflate the inflatable cuff via gas pathways. As the inflatable cuff inflates, a patient monitor can receive blood pressure data from the sensor and use the blood pressure data to determine the blood pressure of the wearer. The device also handles filtering the blood pressure data using a first filter to obtain first filtered blood pressure data from the subject using the device.
The objective behind this invention was to extract better results than a manual device can produce owing to inconsistent rate of inflation. Further, the manual devices make it difficult to and uncomfortable for the wearer, which is not the case in the present invention.
