Application: Automatic detection of a diaphragm in time-motion data using ventilator waveforms (Patent ID: US20230414889A1)

The patent filed by Koninklijke Philips NV describes a diaphragm measurement system that utilizes ultrasound imaging data and respiration data to calculate a diaphragm thickness metric. The system includes an electronic processor programmed to receive the necessary data, calculate the metric, and display it on a display device. Additionally, the system can include an ultrasound imaging patch wearable by the patient to obtain the ultrasound imaging data.

Furthermore, the system can identify components of the ultrasound imaging data corresponding to the diaphragm by analyzing hyper-echogenic lines and correlating them with respiration data. It can also adjust mechanical ventilator settings based on the calculated diaphragm thickness metric. The method outlined in the patent involves receiving ultrasound imaging and respiration data, calculating the diaphragm thickness metric, and displaying the results. Overall, the system aims to provide accurate diaphragm measurements for patients, particularly those receiving mechanical ventilation, to optimize treatment and monitor patient-ventilator synchrony.
