Tamara Colette Baynham, Quan Ni, Shelley M Cazares, Kevin J Stalsberg, Yi Zhang: Closed-loop control of cardioprotective pre-excitation pacing. Cardiac Pacemakers, Schwegman Lundberg & Woessner P A, May 4, 2010: US07711420 (16 worldwide citation)

Cardioprotective pre-excitation pacing may be applied to stress or de-stress a particular myocardial region delivering of pacing pulses in a manner that causes a dyssynchronous contraction. Such dyssynchronous contractions are responsible for the desired cardioprotective effects of pre-excitation pa ...

John Voegele, Clayton Foster, David W Yost, Scott Meyer, Yanting Dong, Kevin J Stalsberg, Derek D Bohn, Eric K Enrooth: Pacing output determination based on selected capture threshold values. Cardiac Pacemakers, Seager Tufte & Wickhem, September 18, 2012: US08271086 (14 worldwide citation)

Approaches for adjusting the pacing energy delivered by a pacemaker are provided. Adjusting the pacing energy involves performing a plurality of capture threshold tests, each capture threshold test measuring a capture threshold of the heart. One or more measured captured thresholds are selected, inc ...

Kevin J Stalsberg: Two terminal line voltage thermostat. Flehr Hohbach Test Albritton & Herbert, April 19, 1994: US05304781 (14 worldwide citation)

A two terminal line voltage thermostat includes a switch which connects one side of the line voltage to a heater load (that it drives) such as a baseboard heater with the other side of the heater being connected to the other side of the line. Common full wave rectifier components drives both a relay ...

Michael R Elgersma, Theresa C Jenne, Kevin J Stalsberg: Self balancing rotatable apparatus. Honeywell, William D Lanyi, October 8, 1996: US05561993 (11 worldwide citation)

A system for balancing a rotatable member is provided by measuring forces and motion via accelerations at various locations of the system. The forces and moments are balanced through the use of matrix manipulation to determine appropriate counterbalance forces located at two axial positions of the r ...
