Joseph B Seale: Variable-pulse dynamic fluid flow controller. FluidSense Corporation, Chris A Caseiro, Thomas L Bohan, April 29, 1997: US05624409 (66 worldwide citation)

A dynamic controller for quantitative rapid-pulse flow control over a wide dynamic range (1000-to-1) forms a fluid path from a pressurized source to a sink. The fluid path travels, typically in a disposable cassette, from the pressure source via a fast (one millisecond) on-off source control valve i ...

Jeffrey A Carlisle, Keena B Patel: Controlled force fluid delivery system. Fluidsense Corporation, Pillsbury Winthrop, February 14, 2002: US20020018720-A1

A controlled force fluid delivery system which provides fluid delivery with continuity over a wide range of flow rate. The system sets the force provided by an energy storage device, e.g. a spring and the opening of system outlet valve in response to a low volume due command. Specifically at a low f ...

A method of position measurement by processing at least two phase displaced signals and by selecting one signal for position measurement at a given position point. Specifically, the two phase displaced signals are quadrature signals and the selected signal has a more linear waveform slope relative t ...

Methods and apparatus for air content and pressure measurement of sample fluid, especially sample fluid in association with an infusion pump. Volume change in a chamber as the chamber transitions between negative and positive pressure relates to the air content in the chamber. In particular, in an i ...

A cassette for controlling fluid flow from a source to a sink, for example, a patient. The cassette comprises a housing, and a passive inlet valve for hydraulically controlling pressurized fluid flow from the inlet valve to a central chamber, and an actuatable outlet valve. The central chamber provi ...
