Another good session Charles. You crammed a lot into that session. Thank You!
And Thank You Rich, Design News and Digi-Key.

Iron

That is ECG as in a Holter monitor, monitoring ECG activity over an extended period of time.

Iron

Other agents that may use store and forward? ECG monitor.

Iron

Other types of data in best effort class of communications? Not critical data, like current date, or time. (as long as it's not part of patient data records that is...)

Iron

No, I had never heard of ASN-1, don't know where it came from.

Iron

Interested in Digital Signal Processing as it relates to medical device development.

Iron

Catching up on some archived courses.
Downloading slides....

Iron

Hello from Beaverton, Oregon.

Iron

hello all from Edmonton, Alberta.

Iron

the presentation today will serve as reference for review an job practice, thanks for this and goodnight! bye...

GREAT PRESENTATION and would like to thanks sir charles for giving and sharing this wonderful topics...

much appreciated for shared lectures...once again, thanks to DIGI-KEY and DESIGN NEWS for another wonderful events...

goodnight!

i am now on slide 20...great!

yes, sir charles, i am very interested to attend more with respect to automation & controls...email me, thanks...

here we go, i am about to begin...

i am now downloading the educational material for this lecture so that i can go simultaneously with sir charles discussion...

good evening once again to all colleagues and our dearly sir charles for giving this lecture...

here i am again to attend for continuing education and would like to thanks DIGI-KEY and DESIGN NEWS for their initiative in creating this learning process that would be a valuable aside from the lecture plus the credits certification for all accomplishment we have been attended...

That was excelent

Iron

Charles,

I would like to know about non inasive blood analysis such as O2 levels.

Iron

Not familiar with ASN.1

Thanks for another very good session.  And thanks to our sponsors for having this on archive.

Iron

Thank you Charles.

Iron

Thanks all for being here today!  We wrap up tomorrow and will try to keep it under 40 minutes (first time for everything!) Have a great day!

Iron

@tdarbonne - thank YOU. 

 

Iron

DA I appreciate your comments - I cut out a lot of my graphic slides in order to get the slide count down (and keep us below 45 minutes).  I am a visual learner also

Iron

Thank you -- that's helpful.  Appreciate this and your earlier series.

Iron

The specializations actually are what make the interoperability work. The overall structure stays the same, you just use a different template for each type of agent. 

 

Iron

from manager to agent? There are error reporting objects that are defined

Iron

Are error codes defined as part of the specializations, or are they defined as an extension?  In practice does the use of extensions invalidate interoperability goals?

Iron

what about communication of error conditions upstream?

 

Iron

The encryption is in the phy layer - USB is wired and none needed.  the PANs (ZigBee and BT) have them built in

I think I either answered all your questions in my talk or put everyone to sleep - I don't see any other questions... did I miss one?

Iron

The earlier presentations discussed the need to encrypt patient data -- and yet the packets coming from some of the examples are relatively simple.  Are the encryption requirements part of Continua's 11073 definition?   What overheads/complications does this entail?  Does this apply mostly to store and forward transmission of the data?

 

Iron

Whew - I apologize for the audio problems at the server side.  I will make sure that I am calling out slide numbers (and that you can see them!) tomorrow

 

Iron

Tomorrow's slides will have a number of references as well as the promised citations from previous data. 

Iron

TimW - I have not run into am isolation issue with USB. There are a number of USB-based sensors and they are treated same as a standard USB cable - the isolation required in the USB std as well as the low voltages involved (3.3 and 5V) take them off the radar for safety issues.  Anyone see anything different?

Iron

This track is especially revelent to me, since my 24 year old son is taking Biomedical Electronics Technology classes at American River College in Sacramento (the class meets at the UC Davis Medical Center).

Iron

Good lecture it is.

Iron

good class Very Important Presentation... examples at the end help with the graphic learners like me ... would like to have seen more graphical representations (data structures, flow diagrams etc) ... would also like to see some reference material that you recommend

IR thermometers are supported in the thermometer as a special case - there will be a std for IR but it is still in committee.

Identifier is a little like a MAC address except there is no central authority.  For now, yes there could be a duplicate but it would be rare

Iron

As to a "Intro to Medical Electronics" curriculum 'track' ... I would be thinking along the lines of a 'new hire training curriculum' examples of which can be found online.  This need not be exhaustive in depth, but could be comprehensive in scope ... ie ... concepts, terminology, main issues, tools, techniques, technologies in a survey course that would allow an engineer (or for that matter, doctor) to understand the FDA process requirements and the state of the art (and industry issues) in the medical device arena ...

Looking forward to tomorrow.

Iron

Thanks all - please bear with me a moment as i work through the window for your questions!

Iron

Thanks very much, great presentation

Iron

Thank you Charles - this has been very informative

 

thanks Charles!

 

Iron

Thank you Charles

Iron

Thank you Charles

Platinum

Thank you Charles.

Iron

Please advise the title of the music to play.

Iron

Excellent presentation, Charles. Thanks!

Thank you , Charles!

Iron

Charles, thank you for today's lecture.

Iron

All the 26 slides are over as well as another very interesting,informative live presentation Charles; Thanks Again!

Iron

Are infrared thermometers supported in the standard?

"Increases likelihood of interopability" scares me .... likelihood vs requirement ... ... thinking 4 remote controllers on the coffee table days

What is slide number now?

Iron

Yes recording are available later and it is typically with no problems

Iron

heart monitor store and forward ...

last 3 days I had problems with audio are this presentations recorded and will they be available later

Iron

Buffer exhaustion? ... Flooding? ... Security issues, ... privacy issues??

ANSI-C compatible 'stacks' seem to be available for 11073 -- open source and vendors ...

While I liek the chat functionality, it woudl be better if we all were viewing the slides on-line so that when the slide changes we would know about it.  Sometimes difficult to determine when we are moving to the next slide.

Iron

Is the identifier like a MAC address?

identifaction data

Iron

Emergency data: eg. heart arrythmia

I cannot sleep cause I can hear you now....

 

Iron

After slide 11

Having gone through Domain, Service and Communication models at high level, would like to see data structures, flow diagrams, sample interaction example ... ie, brain thinking in graphics, text needs more help ... a few diagrams and explanations here ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO/IEEE_11073 but not a lot --- other reference material to share??

Charles, could you discuss galvanic isolation requirements and some solutions for equipment connected via USB2-HS to PCs or other mains connected boxes?

Iron

For sound issues, try chrome or Firefox - seems to be most successful. IE fails.

Iron

Hello from Milwaukee.

Iron

Slide numbers are clearly visible

Blogger

Hello , all it is fine

 

Iron

No problems on my end.

Iron

Not a fun lecture with some many sound interruptions. This has been the worst day so far!

Iron

To the moderator:  Please have Mr. Lord state the slide number each time he moves to a new slide.  Thanks.

Iron

What slide are we on?

Iron

Try flushing your DNS cache - you may be pointed to the wrong server

Iron

chrome audio now okay

Iron

nope... same music... I give up

Iron

I use Firefox and refreshing doen't work. Also the music cuts out frequently.

Iron

Sorry I'm late.  Had to get fresh coffee....

 

Iron

IE is not streaming. Logging out to try chrome

 

Iron

@caa028 try flushing ur cache

Iron

it does not look like a client (browser) side issue... something is wrong on the server side... wrong audio is being strimmed...

Iron

audio is clear here I am using firefox. For those tghat are having problems refresh your browser

Iron

If refreshing your browser doesn't work, please try using a different browser. FF and Chrome work the best.

not for me... tried refreshing the page, restarting the browser (using firefox), different browser (chrome) - same result... get the "laptop radio" announcement and then the music starts streaming...

Iron

I think that this piece was composed by Antonio Vivaldi.

Iron

Everything is fine in London, Ontario with audio

Iron

No music no lecture, refreshed browser - no effect, only get "lockhoff radio" verbal announcement

 

Iron

I have refreshed my browser several times... only get music

Iron

Audio issues? Try refreshing browser a few times.

Iron

@richnass - yes, getting some music streaming instead of a lecture

Iron

no stability in the sound, very intermittent!

Iron

Hello everyone - Please try refreshing your browser if you aren't hearing the lecture. And then hit the play buttom again.

Houston we have a problem

Iron

still no lecture audio... just some classical music...

Iron

interested in signal conditioning of physiological measurements

 

Iron

Needed to refresh browser again. Looks like audio issues are still not figured out by the tech guys.

Iron

Audio is on. Is anyone having difficulty?

Blogger

very nice music..... where's the lesson?

Iron

several refresh attempts... getting "laptop radio"... followed by some music...

Iron

rswanson, I recall hearing the music on a diamond commercial years ago and then live at Honolulu Youth Symphony.  I have an email in to the girl's mother who might remember the name of the music and author.

Platinum

Hi everybody . .  from mexico

I had to restart the audio again to hear the lecture

 

Iron

maybe try refreshing your browser window?

 

Iron

@rswanson: I think it's Vivaldi. Nice add to let us know audio should be working. At least it was. Now music has stopped and just silence.

Iron

yes - same - no audio - waiting

Iron

My foot is a tappin'...   :)

No audio? Hearing some music instead of a lecture...

Iron

Gorgeous Day north of the border

Iron

I still want to know what is the name of the music that's playing

 

Iron

Hi to all from Egypt

Iron

wow, on page 4 of today's slide deck, i see Charles's terms mangled as "Star Trek", "Transporter", "Personal Communicator".  you can see the effect of C2H5OH last night, considering that home-made version costs only $2 / litre, or $1.5 / bottle. :)  that is why i need a personal breatheriser! :))

The U.S. Medical Device Industry in 2012: (continued)

 

Weaknesses

The U.S. medical device industry faces the confluence of many internal challenges. Four significant weaknesses of this ecosystem are: a growing talent and development gap, a slow and cumbersome regulatory system, an excise tax on medical devices, and a lack of a permanent R&D tax credit.

 

Foreign outsourcing of manufacturing, R&D, and other operations, combined with industry consolidation, is forecast to decrease the number of industry operators during the next five years. Small companies are common and typically specialize in developing niche technology, while larger players frequently seek to acquire these firms to expand their product range or gain access to a particular technology. However, during the past five years, consolidation has swept the industry, with the number of companies decreasing at an average annual rate of 5.5% to total 828.

http://www.mddionline.com/article/medtech-2012-SWOT

The U.S. Medical Device Industry in 2012:

 

Today, the United States is the acknowledged world leader in medical devices and diagnostic products. With more than half of the leading global medical device companies based in the United States, the industry currently employs more than 400,000 Americans directly and 2 million people indirectly.

 

Strengths

During the past 50 years, the United States has provided an ideal environment for innovation that has facilitated significant advances in medical technology. This has been due to its;

market size, Regulatory Standards, the institutional knowledge available in both the government and in the universities, the increase in patient knowledge and demands, and its strong venture capital community ...

 

WASHINGTON ­— Harvard, MIT, and a coalition of other powerhouse research institutions have thwarted a reform proposal by the Obama administration to slash the amount of government research money each school receives for overhead costs.

 

The result is that about $10 billion a year, roughly a quarter of the nation's university research budget, will continue to be channeled into such things as administrative salaries and building depreciation instead of directly into scientific studies.

 

Critics say the system lacks accountability, unfairly rewards the biggest schools, and is an ineffective use of taxpayer research dollars in an era of fiscal austerity.

http://www.bostonglobe.com/news/nation/2013/03/17/harvard-mit-and-other-research-schools-thwart-obama-administration-effort-cap-overhead-payments/Nk5PT0Mc8MQZihFVNs5gNK/story.html

The $20B [Medical Device] tax was included in the Affordable Care Act that was signed into law in 2010. The amount is based on a 2.3% excise tax that will be levied on the total revenues of a company, regardless of whether a company generates a profit, starting in 2013. Many companies will owe more in taxes than they generate from their operations. The result will be devastating to innovation, patient care and job creation.   ...   ...

 

The overwhelming majority of innovation from the medical device industry comes from smaller manufacturers who work closely with clinicians and engineers to develop the therapies and treatments of tomorrow. If it is not repealed, this tax will stifle innovation, harm patient care and weaken the position of the United States as the global leader in medical device innovation.
