Application: Closed loop blood pressure control (Patent ID: US20230380705A1)

The patent filed by Medtronic Plc describes a system that measures a biometric parameter associated with a subject, determines control parameters based on the biometric measurement, and performs a control measure based on a comparison to a threshold. The system can deliver therapy treatment or output notifications related to medical conditions based on the control parameters. The process is triggered by specific criteria such as changes in posture, activity level, or biometric parameter values.

The system includes sensors, a processor, and memory storing instructions for measuring biometric parameters, deriving control parameters, and executing control measures. The sensors can be optical, ultrasound, or impedance sensors measuring parameters like blood pressure, pulse wave velocity, or anatomical characteristics. The control measures can involve delivering therapy treatment through devices like pacemakers or neurostimulators. Additionally, the system can utilize machine learning models to determine control parameters based on biometric data and operate in a closed-loop mode for continuous monitoring and intervention.
