Treatment using dantrolene
Patent No. 9,271,964
Provided are low-volume, safe for injection formulations of dantrolene yielding significant advantages over the currently approved and marketed dantrolene for malignant hyperthermia (MH) threatening anesthetic crisis. Once dantrolene can be made immediately available to patients triggered of MH, the anesthesiologist will be able to focus exclusively on the management of the patient’s physiologic status in this complex and evolving crisis, not on the laborious and time consuming reconstitution process of the rescue agent. The low volume, safe for injection formulations of dantrolene have significant advantages over currently used approaches to the prevention and treatment of pumphead, and other neurological, cognitive and motor dysfunction incident to iatrogenically or trauma induced situations of altered blood flow, including those incurred during surgical procedures involving CPB or related procedures, as well as those incurred during non-normothermic episodes caused iatrogenically or by disease.

Device for control of difficult to compress hemorrhage
Patent No. 9,271,738
Bleeding from blood vessels located in difficult-to-compress regions of the body (especially the abdomen, pelvic or groin region) is controlled by the use of a portable, small-footprint belt-like device that contains multiple inflatable bladders. The inflatable bladders are selectively positioned and inflated over exsanguinating blood vessels, thereby exerting pressure to stop the bleeding. The device may also be used to provide perfusion support in low flow disease states such as hemorrhagic shock and cardiac arrest.

Systems and methods for secure remote storage
Patent No. 9,275,071
Systems and methods are provided for transmitting data to at least one storage system. A request is received to store a data set in a storage location. In response, a first plurality of shares is generated, each containing a distribution of data from the data set, and at least one share is stored in a local memory configured for backup in at least one remote storage system. At least one share is transmitted to the at least one remote storage system. Systems and methods are also provided for improving data availability. In response to a restoration event, if insufficient shares of data are available to reconstruct a data set, a read instruction in a journaling message is transmitted to a remote storage system requesting an additional share. The additional share is received and stored in a local storage, and the data set is reconstructed.

Polyelectrolyte complexes
Patent No. 9,273,220
The present invention relates to aqueous compositions of associative polyelectrolyte complexes (PECs), optionally containing surfactants, biocidal agents and/or oxidants, which can provide surface protection to treated articles including reduced soiling tendency, reduced cleaning effort and improved soil repellancy, as well as providing bacteriostatic properties to treated surfaces that thereby gain resistance to water, environmental exposure and microbial challenge. Treatment means and compositions are provided that employ associative polyelectrolyte complexes formed by combining a water soluble cationic first polyelectrolyte with a water soluble second polyelectrolyte bearing groups of opposite charge to the first polyelectrolyte under suitable mixing conditions where the one polyelectrolyte present in molar excess is added in the form of a first aqueous solution during a mixing step to a second aqueous solution comprising the oppositely charged polyelectrolyte present in molar deficiency. Also provided are means to form stable associative polyelectrolyte complexes in aqueous solutions having R values from about 0.10 to 20, including near stoichiometric R values approaching 1, being the ratio of charged groups present on the component polyelectrolytes employed.
Inventors: David R. Scheuing (Pleasanton, Calif.), David J. Lestage (McKinney, Texas), Carl W. Bennett (Glen Allen, Va.), Mona M. Knock (Pleasanton, Calif.), Charles W. Scales (St. Augustine, Fla.), William L. Smith (Pleasanton, Calif.), Rui Zhang (Kaohsiung, Taiwan)

Automated mix in-cup apparatus and the method of operating the same
Patent No. 9,272,250
The present disclosure describes an automated blend in-cup apparatus and the related method of operation. The disclosure relates generally to the field of mixing consumable material. More specifically, the disclosure relates to a mixer that is automatically operable to lower a mixing blade into a cup or vessel that contains material to be blended/mixed. A shield is automatically lowered to at least partially isolate the cup. The apparatus further comprises a well with an inlet manifold and a drain and a fixed but removable cup-receiving holder. The shield can include a magnetic portion that is detected by a first sensor on the apparatus. A safety interlock prevents the actuation of the mixing blade in the event that the magnetic portion is not proximate to the first sensor. Overall, the apparatus is effective, fast, easy to operate, safe, and clean.
