Publication number: US20220023537A1

Abstract:
Disclosed herein are techniques for closed-loop control based on predicted trajectories. The techniques may involve predicting a trajectory of a glucose level of a patient based on past observations of the glucose level. The techniques may further involve determining a cost expression based on the predicted trajectory. The cost expression may be based on a duration of time that the trajectory is predicted to extend outside of a target glucose concentration range. Additionally, the techniques may involve affecting, based on the cost expression, at least one future command to at least one infusion pump so as to shorten the duration of time that the trajectory is predicted to extend outside of the target glucose concentration range.

Publication number: US20220029465A1

Abstract:
Systems, devices and methods allow inductive recharging of a power source located within or coupled to an implantable medical device while the device is implanted in a patient. The recharging system/device in some examples includes a first electrical coil and a second electrical coil configured to generate opposing magnetic fields forming a resultant magnetic field within a recharging envelope located between the coils. A third coil of the implantable medical device may be positioned within the recharging envelope so that the resultant magnetic field is imposed on the third coil, causing electrical energy to be induced in the third coil, the induced electrical energy used to recharge a power source of an implantable medical device coupled to the third coil, and/or to power operation of the implantable medical device.

Publication number: US20220023041A1

Abstract:
Distal tips for use with delivery catheters are disclosed that are configured to facilitate deflection of the catheters as they are advanced through the vasculature to a desired treatment site. Distal tips so configured realize one or more of the objectives of safer, more accurate steering of the catheter through the vasculature.
