Frederick A Stawitcke, William J Mordan, Holly B Jimison, Robert Piziali, Allen K Ream: Medical ventilator device parametrically controlled for patient ventilation. Hewlett Packard Company, Edward Y Wong, May 15, 1984: US04448192 (113 worldwide citation)

A ventilator which accommodates to a patient's efforts in breathing and to his change in respiratory requirements is provided by a system with a novel control law. The novel control law determines a target ideal pressure-volume wave-form which characterizes the patient's respiratory requirements; th ...

William J Mordan: Sweep generator apparatus and method. Hewlett Packard Company, A C Smith, August 17, 1976: US03975684 (7 worldwide citation)

An improved sweep circuit for an oscilloscope or the like has an adjustably delayed sweep which is time shared to display separate recurring events of interest alternately to provide an apparently simultaneous display of the events. The adjustable delay between sweeps may be directly indicated as a ...
