Detailed description of the invention

Developed a portable system for data management for reliable management information on health-related PA the rate, such as the measurement of glucose in the blood sample, and display this information. The proposed system for data management is particularly suitable for patients who have continuously measure the concentration of glucose and/or other of the analyzed substances in the blood or body fluids of interest, and record the measurement results. Using the proposed system for data management of patients exposed to frequent surveys, it is easier to control the results of their examinations, and other medical data. The proposed system can be used with various processing devices in different places, because it essentially requires no pre-installation of additional software, agents, drivers, devices, or other components of the programs on a separate processing device. In any portable device contains software tools for software applications for data management, which receives and processes the measurement results and other medical information. The portable device may use an interface Protocol that is compatible with operating systems and hardware configurations of the processing devices of various types. A software application for managing data which can be run in the processing device upon connection of the portable device with the processing device.

In the system for data management can also be integrated advanced data processing and display information from a portable device. Health data can be demonstrated to the users improved ways without running software applications for managing data on a separate processing device. In addition, the system for data management can integrate other functions, such as the measurement function of the analyte, with a portable device.

Due to its mobility system for data management also solves problems associated with the protection of data privacy, such as personal health information. System for data management ensures that all data in a portable device owned by the user, and eliminates the transfer of data to other processing devices and save these data to other processing devices. Thus, to implement the front-end interaction with the specified portable device, the user can use any public computer on which you will not be left any data visible to other persons. For better data protection can also be taken by other security measures, such as procedures is s user authentication. In addition, the proposed system for data management can also ensure the integrity of data during transmission between the portable device and other devices.

On figa shows a system 10 for managing data containing processing device 100 and the portable device 200. Processing device 100 may be a desktop or bonus personal computer (PC), laptop, or handheld personal computer (LDCs)that are compatible personal digital assistant (PDA), smart mobile phone (smartphone), etc. in Addition, processing device 100 may use any operating system and configuration. If the processing device 100 is a desktop or a bonus personal computer, the operating system may be Microsoft® Windows®. In another embodiment of the invention, if the processing device 100 is a PDA, then the operating system may correspond to operating systems for handheld PCs, PALM®, supplied by Palm, Inc., or Blackberry®device, supplied by the company Research in Motion Limited. In General, the processing device 100 includes a processor 110, which is configured to receive and execute any number of software commands. In addition, the processing device 100 typically OS is amino display 120 and a keyboard 130, and/or other elements of IO, which can be external relative to other components of the processing device 100 or combined with them.

As described in more detail below, the portable device 200 may be used in combination with the leading computers that can perform tasks, but which are not fully functional processing devices. Such host computers can be adapted to the task of devices, such as printers, displays, gauges for the measurement of the analyte in the physiological fluids (e.g., meters for measuring glucose in blood) etc. In General, although it may be described specific configuration of the system to control the data that can be used in other configurations, including using other host computers, storage devices, and additional components.

The portable device 200 may have dimensions that allow the patient to wear, to carry and keep. The portable device 200 may include a memory or data storage device, 220, such as flash memory, electrically erasable programmable permanent memory (EEPROM) and the like, the Memory 220 may be configured to contain the combination of storage technologies. The memory 220 contains the it software application 210 for data management referring to the system 10 for data management. Software application 210 may be a set of programs or computer codes that receives and processes the data of the measurement results and/or other input signals. Software application 210 processes and/or displays the input in a way that is convenient for the user or selected by the user or other persons. This information can be used by the user, a social worker, the attending physician and/or other persons. As indicated above, the measured data can include information about the results of measurements of the concentration of the analyte, including the concentration of glucose and/or other of the analyzed substances in the patient's blood or other body fluids. Software application 210 may provide improved mapping and data processing, which can be claimed by the user, subject to surveys several times a day (for example, from six to ten times a day). For example, the software application 210 may include a product that is similar to the control program WINGLUCOFACTS® for patients with diabetes, supplied by Bayer HealthCare LLC (Tarrytown, new York). The software application 210 can provide a complete set of tools that take the measurement results from izmeritelnaya to test glucose in the blood and store them, accept and store other information about the measurement, such as the scan time and the food markers, record the measurement results in electronic form, calculate averages and provide other statistical analysis, summarize and provide feedback regarding the results of the measurements provide adaptable under graphical user interface display on the display screen understandable charts and graphs of the measurement results, monitor the results of the measurements compared to the prescribed user is valid restrictions, provide predictive Analytics and/or send the data to healthcare workers by Fax, e-mail, etc. On figs illustrated screen 120A, which shows the results of measurements of the content glucose in the blood taken from the measuring system, in the format of the electronic form and on fig.1D illustrated screen 120V, which shows similar data with graphical trend analysis. In addition to the software application 210, the memory 220 may also contain other software tools.

The system 10 is not limited to receiving and processing information about the measurements of the concentrations of the analyte, such as glucose in the blood. The system 10 can receive data from other systems or devices that measure and/or re is astronaut medical data and do not require measurement of the analyte, such as measuring body temperature, blood pressure measurement, measurement of heart rate, measuring the oxygen content in the blood, measuring respiration conducted to analyze chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), weighing carried out to analyze the use of furosemide, etc.

Software application 210 can include a combination of programs or components. On figa shows the software application 210, which includes program 212 startup or initialization, which initializes a software application for data management. Program 212 can start to identify appropriate resources and platform processing device 100, so that it can be selected and started to run a software application that is compatible with the platform. The software application 210 may be compatible with at least one platform/operating system. Most compatible software applications 210 improves the mobility of the system 10.

In addition, the software application 210 can use the device 214 for storing data, such as a built-in database to receive and store measurement results. In the system 10 resolved issues related to data security, such as personal health information, providing: (1) storage and processing essentially Yes all the data on the portable device 200, which remains in the possession of the user; and (2) the lack of a permanent transfer of read data from the device 214 to the processing device 100, which may have access to other persons. Thus, to ensure interaction with the system 10, the user can use a public computer, on which no data is visible to other persons. Although the system 10 may transmit data in RAM or other such storage device in the processing device 100, the operation of cleaning or end in the software application 210 assures the removal of any such data transmitted from the processing device 100 after the execution of the software application 210. However, as described below, the software application 210 can be executed directly from the portable device 200, so that no memory, such as memory, processing device 100 will not be used for saving, even if temporary, of any data.

If the user trusts the particular processing device 100 and/or frequently uses it, the user can register processing device 100 in the portable device 200 to allow the data processing device 100. In the portable device 200 may be registered with the unique the first identifier to the processing device 100, on which the portable device 200 can recognize the processing device 100 and to allow the transfer of data to the processing device 100.

Data security can also be improved by using the device 214 for storing data (for example, a built-in database), access and decrypt the data may be exercised only by the software application 210. In addition, the software application 210 may also include programs or components, such as routine checking of the user, which protect the integrity and confidentiality of information. When you run the software application 210 can be immediately generated a request for the user ID and password, personal identification number and/or other identification information. Access to the data in the portable device 200 is permitted to the user only if its response to a request subroutine checks the user corresponds to the identification information stored by the system 10. Subroutine user authentication can also be used to enable data transmission from the portable device 200 to the processing device 100.

In addition, can be used to map the distribution of memory in which the memory 220 is configured so that has several levels of protection. In other words, the areas of memory and 220 are assigned different levels of access and operations, for example, some areas may be more limited in comparison with others. For example, the first level can provide open access to record, delete, and modify data, and the second layer can be completely immutable. While the core of the program, the program in RAM, the critical constant data, etc. can be saved at the second level to protect programs and data from damage or removal.

As described above, the memory 220 may be configured to enable the combination of storage technologies. Accordingly, the core of the program, the software application 210, etc. can be stored in EEPROM (EEPROM) or other primary device. Software application 210 run on the processing device 100 from EEPROM. When this data is processed by the software application 210, keep in a separate flash memory or another storage device in the portable device 200.

As described above, the portable device 200 may include a flash memory device such as flash drive, universal serial bus (USB) or a memory card. USB flash drives are also known under the name "flash". The memory card may have different formats including PC Card (PCMCIA), CompactFlash (CF)card, SmartMedia card (SM/SMC), Memory Stick (MS), Multimedia Card (MMC), Secure Digital Card (SD), xD-Picture Card (xD), Intelligent Stick (iStick), ExpressCard, various modifications, etc. Give the TBA flash memory may use non-volatile memory, so the program is related to a software application 210 may be stored in the portable device 200 even when there is no power on the portable device 200. The portable device 200 may use other storage media such as a floppy disk or optical disc (CD, CD, digital video disc DVD, Blu-ray).

In some embodiments, performing the memory 220 in the portable device 200 may contain "running-in-place" memory (XIP), such as flash memory, NOR flash (digital logic element "NOT-OR"), so that the software application 210 stored in the memory 220 can be performed directly without the need to copy it into memory in the processing device 100. Accordingly, the system 10 can provide data protection the fact that essentially all data is stored and processed by the system 10, operating separately from the portable device owned by the user, and that essentially no data is being transmitted to other processing devices. Thus, to provide front-end interaction with this system the user can use a public computer, on which no data is visible to others.

The portable device 200 may provide an interface interaction with the processing device 100 with the use of the cation-to-use technology plug-and-play (plug-n-play - PnP). The interface provides data transfer between the portable device 200 and any processing device 100 and provides the ability to use software applications 210 processing device 100. In particular, the portable device 200 has an interface element 250, which is compatible with the interface element 150 in the manufacturing device 100. The interface element 250 portable device may be physically connected to the interface element 150 processing device for the formation of the hardware interface. In other words, between the processing device 100 and the portable device 200 can be used physical or wired connection. On FIGU illustrated a portable device 200A, physically United, for example by inserting, via the interface elements 150/250 with processing device 100A, which is a bonus, a portable computer with a display 120 and a keyboard 130. The portable device 200 may be a USB flash drive, and an interface element 250 processing device may be a USB connector, which is inserted into the USB port, acting as an interface element 150 processing device 100. Thus, in the portable device 200 used configuration USB mass storage device large capacity USB MSD), which provide which ensures the connection between the processing device 100 and the portable device 200 in accordance with the standard set of computing communications protocols. The USB connector on the portable device 200 may be easily inserted into the USB port in the processing device 100 and removed from it. In addition, to ensure the connection between, for example, the portable device 200 and the processing device 100 can be used transitional device type mini-USB, micro-USB, etc. Despite the fact that figa shows a single interface element 250, the portable device 200 may include at least two of the interface element 250, provides compounds according to multiple front-end technologies.

Most of the traditional desktop and bonus personal computers equipped with USB ports, and modern operating systems such as Microsoft® Windows®, Mac OS®, Linux, and other systems, like Unix, initially support the industry-standard memory devices of large capacity USB type. Since data transmission over the USB natively supported by different devices, no need for local installation in the manufacturing device 100 auxiliary programs, agents, device drivers or other software components that provide communication with the device configuration USB high capacity (USB MSD) of the portable device 200.

The portable device 200 may also be a memory card Secure Digital (SD) with a set of contacts, which act as inter Isny element 250. The interface element 150 processing device may be an expansion slot that accepts memory card contacts. Processing device 100 and the portable device 200 may correspond to the technical requirements of the interface SDIO (secure digital input and output). Can also be used memory card other formats having different interface specifications. However, the use of type interface SDIO preferably, since most of the processing devices, such as PDA, HPC and smartphones have an expansion slot that is compatible with the SDIO standard.

In another embodiment of the invention or additional interface elements 150 and 250 can also provide data transfer between the processing device 100 and the portable device 200 through the wireless communication method (for example, radio frequency telemetry means the middle of the action), such as using wireless technology Bluetooth®technology Zigbee, Z-Sense™, systems FitSense, BodyLAN™ and other radio frequency technologies. RF technologies such as Bluetooth®, provide wireless communication with external devices, for example, with bonus personal computers and mobile phones. Can also be used for other wireless, or so-called "non-physical", communications the district technology such as using infrared communication.

In the storage device 200 preferably used interface element 250 that is compatible with at least one interface standard or Protocol, such as USB, SD or Bluetooth®. Processing device 100 that uses any widespread front-end technology, is more suitable interface for interaction with the storage device 200. Thus, the software application 210 in the portable device 200 may be directly executed in the processing device 100 different types with different operating systems and hardware configurations, which makes the system 10 is more versatile.

The block diagram shown in figure 2, illustrates the ability to perform in the manufacturing device 100 software application 210 stored in the portable device 200. In step 302 processing device 100 is initially connected to the portable device 200. As described above, the interface element 150 processing device and an interface element 250 portable device may establish the connection according to any front-end technology. For example, the user can insert the USB connector of the portable device 200 into the USB port in the manufacturing device 100.

As well as the above, processing device 100 may initially support the technology interface of the portable device 200. Thus, in step 304 processing device 100 may immediately be reported according to the current configuration of the portable device 200. If the portable device 200 uses the configuration of USB MSD and the processing device 100 supports this configuration, the connection between the processing device 100 and the portable device 200 is installed automatically. Due to the widespread use of USB interfaces the need for pre-installation processing device 100 additional programs, agents, device drivers, or other software applications for combining processing device 100 with the configuration of the USB MSD portable device 200 in General is absent.

At step 306 processing device 100 detects the portable device 200. On figa shown that the software application 210 212 includes a program run. In step 308, the program 212 can be started immediately after the detection processing device 100 of the portable device 200. Program 212 can be started automatically or after user input, another person or another component. Many operating systems support the autorun feature, which poses the s system to perform some action immediately when you insert removable media, such as CD-ROM, DVD-ROM or flash devices. Processing device 100 may use the version of the operating system Microsoft® Windows®, which supports the auto-run or auto play to automatically run the program 212. For some of the processing devices 100, which are used, for example, operating system Microsoft® Windows®, the portable device 200 may first declare their processing device 100 that it is a fixed device, before being involved AutoPlay operating system to run the program 212.

In step 310, the program 212 will rekonfigurirovat portable device 200 from the initial configuration USB MSD in the new configuration, which is adapted for application software 210. In step 312, the new configuration data management allows running software applications for data management and its use in combination with the processing device 100. Configuration for data management also supports related functions such as the management data is updated in the device 214.

Reconfiguring the portable storage device 200 of the more versatile configuration USB MSD in a specialized configuration management data block or deny access to other software applications, is contained in the processing device 100, files and the data contained in the portable device 200, and in this way improve the security of the system 10. If the processing device 100 uses the operating system Microsoft® Windows®, Windows® Explorer, which creates a graphical user interface for accessing the file systems do not have access to the files on the portable device 200, while the portable device 200 is reconfigured specifically for software applications for data management. This reconfiguration can be performed automatically upon connection of the portable device 200 with the processing device 100, which prevents access of unassigned software applications contained in the processing device 100, to any data contained in the portable device 200.

With features plug-and-play" interface interaction processing device 100 with the portable device 200, the device can be connected or disconnected by the user at any time. The system 10 ensures that no damage to data or software applications contained on the portable device 200, during connection or disconnection of the portable device 200 with the processing device 100. To ensure the successful transfer and save data can be used routines check the RCTs checksum and/or completion of the transaction, that improves retention of information a whole. In addition, as described above, when removing the portable device 200, the software application 210 may perform an operation of cleaning or end with the destruction of all data, temporarily stored in the processing device 100, for example in RAM, and gradually shut down.

Although the portable device 200 and the software application 210 stored on it can be compatible with most of the processing devices 100 having different operating systems, however, the system 10 may also use or other processing device 100, which acts as a base station. The portable device 200 may be connected to processing unit of the base station with the use described here, the front-end technologies. Processing device, the base station may provide a data repository for long-term storage of data that is downloaded from the portable device 200. In addition, in the manufacturing device of the base station can be run from a portable device 200, the main version of the software application for data management. For example, processing device, the base station may be a personal home computer.

In addition, the portable device 200 may be provided with a port expansion is to be placed, which can take additional devices such as an SD memory card. The interface of this port expansion works like the other interfaces described in this specification. In particular, this interface can use the SDIO interface for receiving an SD card. Additional memory on the SD card can be used to store a large database with measurements.

In addition to storing data, such as measurements taken from the system for measuring glucose in the blood, and other medical data, processed by the software application 210, the portable device 200 due to its mobility and compatibility can perform the function of a portable device containing the history of the disease. When the portable device 200 may be applied to facilitate the use of important information together with the personnel of emergency medical aid, doctors, other health workers, etc.

In the private embodiment, the portable device 200 may provide important information during emergencies. If the user is unconscious or for any other reason unable to contact the guardian, the guardian can connect the portable device 200 with the processing device 100 via the interface element 250, and after running the software applications which I 210 important information might appear in a pop-up window or the initial window. This functionality is possible due to the high compatibility of the portable device 200 with different processing devices 100 and the guardian does not need to pre-install software components in the processing device 100 to run the software application 210.

In some cases, the software application 210 can be distributed among health care institutions, so that the data in the portable device 200 may be available, if such access is allowed, using the software applications 210 that is installed in the processing device 100 medical institutions, for example on a personal computer. In order to ensure the security of data can be encrypted so that they can be read in the manufacturing device of a medical institution only using the deciphering key. If the instance of the software application 210 is already working in the manufacturing device 100, a software application 210 on the portable device 200 may be allowed to run to avoid simultaneous operation of two instances of the software application 210. Since the portable device 200 and the processing device 100 may have different versions of the software application 210 may require approval procedure different versions. Different versions of software is prilojeniya can organize and store data in different ways and/or receive data in different formats. In other words, the structure of the device 214 and the types of data stored in it may depend on the version of the software application 210. For example, if the processing device of the medical institution uses a newer version of the software application 210, this newer version can be designed to provide backward compatibility with older versions of the software application 210 and can work with data stored in the portable device 200. However, if the processing device 100 of the medical institution uses an old version of the software application 210, the old version of the software application 210 may be stopped, and a newer version is contained on the portable device 200 may be run in the processing device 100 hospitals. Can also be used and other technologies reconciliation of different versions. For example, the software application 210 can be designed with the possibility of a core set of functions that always work the same, and the same structure of some basic data types, such as the results of measurements of the concentration of an analyte in a physiological fluid, so that at least some aspects of the software applications 210 remain unchanged, and in this way can be provided p is of Jamaica, and backward compatibility.

In General, the types of data that can be saved and used in conjunction with other persons, such as medical institutions, include inter alia: information about the name and the address of the control data of the patient (information from medical records, data daily monitoring of chronic diseases and parameters measured, the measurement results collected for the last 12 hours and the like); data on concomitant diseases; information on the latest dose of insulin or other accepted therapeutic drug; the name of the attending physician and his / her contact details; information on recent visits to the doctor; a Testament in case of death; information on case of disability; insurance information; information about allergies and other user-supplied information. In another embodiment of the invention or additional information may be provided on the label or other labeling that is attached to the portable device 200.

Only the user controls the information that provided shared access through a portable device 200, to preserve the integrity of his private life. For greater control of the shared data, the software application 210 may provide multiple levels of access to some types of data were only available for the La these persons/organizations. For example, only the personnel of emergency medical care may have access to information such as medical information and data, which are usually put on a medical alert bracelet. In other words, the software application provides the implementation of the most basic functions, such as displaying a single pop-up window to provide less sensitive personal information to persons who do not have access to higher level. Thus physician can have access to more sensitive information that is associated with the health of his patient. In addition, access to a higher level may be granted to relatives or close people, for example parents of a child suffering from diabetes.

As described above, the portable device 200 may have multiple interfaces 250 for connection and communication with various devices. In addition to the connection with the processing device 100 to run the software application 210, as described above, the portable device 200 may use their communication capabilities for remote connections, such as network with external systems to provide the user a wider range of functionalities and services. In some embodiments, perform these external systems can function as the host computer of the host notarypublic connection of the portable device 200 with external systems. Such an external system can perform the functions of the software application 210 or other components of the software application stored on the portable device 200, for providing communication between the portable device 200 and external systems. In another embodiment of the invention these external systems can save locally the necessary components of the software application.

Accordingly, the portable device 200 may be connected to an intermediate device such as a personal computer with access to the Internet, or mobile communication device with access to a cellular network, for transmitting data to other persons, such as medical institutions. Thus the user does not need to connect the portable device 200 directly from the processing device 100 of another person to share data. Thus, the medical data stored on the portable device 200, can easily be used by other persons, including health professionals, which can be located in remote or very remote areas. This feature of the invention may be particularly useful for users who are unable to visit a medical institution because of health problems, distance, cost, etc. in Addition, this feature of the invention is valitsimet the capacity of the hospital to track medical data of the user and often immediately in urgent cases. Data transfer can manage the intermediate device may include a processor to perform the respective component software application, stored in the intermediate device or portable device 200.

In addition, the portable device 200 may be connected with the intermediate device to update the location data and/or software applications stored on the portable device 200. For example, the portable device 200 can be easily updated/fixed version, or even a complete new version of the software application 210 through the connection to the remote boot server via a network computer or mobile communication device. In another example, the portable device 200 may receive new or updated parameters the execution of the software application on the portable device 200. In some embodiments, execution of new programs or functions of the system 10 may be adopted, for example, acquired from the remote boot server. Additional functions to customize or individualize the graphical user interface for a software application to manage the data can be accessed through the system, available on the Internet. To ensure the integrity of data and software applications on a portable device 200, data is e or a software application, downloaded the update mode on the spot, may be approved prior to their use in the portable device 200. For example, to confirm full and successful download data or software applications can be used routines checksum. An in-place upgrade can control the intermediate device may include a processor to perform the respective components of the software application, stored in the intermediate device or portable device 200. In another embodiment of the invention, or additionally, the portable device 200 may include a processor that can locally run software applications to control aspects of the in-place upgrade. For example, a processor in the portable device 200 can ensure the integrity of information on the portable device 200 according to the update file data (DUF), or other component that provides a successful software application. For extra data protection can be used the update file encryption/decryption of data.

As described above, embodiments of the portable device 200 can use the USB interface for connecting to different devices. In traditional systems, interface USB standard provides the tie is between the processing device and peripheral devices, moreover, the processing device acts as the host and peripherals with USB support act as slaves. In General, when using USB, only the host computer with USB can initialize the data in the connected peripheral device is a USB peripheral USB device can only respond to commands from the host computer. Thus, peripheral device with USB support does not have the ability to connect to other peripherals with USB support channel peer-to-peer communication. On FIGU shows processing device 100, which is a bonus personal computer, acting as the host computer and the portable device 200, acting as a peripheral device. When you run the software application 210 in the manufacturing device 100 processing device 100 by using the software application 210 controls the execution of program commands and any transmission of data on a portable device 200.

However, in other versions of the portable device 200 may include processing functions, enabling it to act as the host. Thus, the portable device 200 is not limited to the role of the slave device as a peripheral device that supports the USB standard. the related words, the portable device 200 can communicate with a variety of devices via peer-to-peer communication, including devices that are usually considered peripheral devices.

For example, the portable device 200 may use the technical requirements of USB 2.0 standard and USB OTG (on standard peer-to-peer connection peripheral devices USB without connecting to the host PC, no need to install drivers), which is in addition to the technical requirements of USB 2.0. Functional means according to the USB OTG provide connection of the portable device 200 with other devices that support USB OTG. When two devices with USB OTG functions are connected to each other directly, the communication Protocol with the host PC (NHP) provides any of these two devices can act as the host. The Protocol NHP also allows the two devices to exchange their roles of master and slave. When the physical connection between two devices that support USB OTG, one of the devices assumes the role of master of computer and supplies power to the USB bus voltage vbus and a current of 8 mA for implementation between the two connected devices connection according to the USB standard. To request the host computer to enable USB bus power vbus can be used in the IAOD the request Protocol communication session (SRP). The relationship between these two devices is bidirectional or duplex, and in this way between the two devices can be carried out the exchange of information. Such a relationship can provide a low transmission speed (1.5 Mbit/sec), the normal baud rate (about 12 Mbit/s) or high speed (approximately 480 Mbit/sec). Preferably functionality of USB OTG is configured for use with devices that have a battery, and minimize energy consumption. In this regard, the USB bus power vbus can be turned on or off host computer using the SRP Protocol.

It should be noted that if the portable device 200, shown in figa, which contains functionality that supports USB OTG, is connected with the processing device 100 (not supporting the USB standard GR), processing device 100 and the portable device 200 may be contacted by the usual Protocol of the USB standard, and the processing device 100 in General will act as the host computer, as described above. Other portable devices may use communication protocols that provide advantages similar to the advantages of USB OTG.

Through the use of standard USB OTG portable device 200 may be directly soy is into with printer, supports the USB standard, and the data from the portable device 200 may be printed automatically. The portable device 200 can dynamically create ready to print or printable files and can transfer these files to the printer via the USB connection.

To interact portable device 200 to another device may require a device driver and/or other components of the software application. For example, to print data sent to the printer, you may need the printer driver. Thus, to print files to the portable device 200 may store and use the printer driver when connecting the portable storage device 200 to the printer for printing data. Since installing additional device drivers and/or other components of the software application on the portable device 200 that supports USB OTG, it may be impossible after manufacturing of the portable device 200, the portable device 200 may be compatible only with the pre-selected set of device drivers which were installed on the portable device 200 during manufacture. The list of compatible devices can be saved in the portable device 200 with the ability to determine the compatibility of the portable device 200 with this device.

the other variant of the invention, the first portable device 200, supports USB OTG, can connect directly with the second portable device 200, and one of the portable devices assumes the role of the host computer (host computer). Also, in one embodiment of the invention, when the user wants to replace the old new portable device portable device, data and configuration contained in the old portable device can be easily transferred directly into the new portable device. In another embodiment of the invention functional tools located on the first portable device 200 may be used in conjunction with the second portable device 200, or Vice versa. For example, the second portable device 200 may include interface elements USB, and wireless RF Protocol RJF, missing in the first portable device 200. However, if the first portable device 200 is connected to the second portable device 200 through the USB interface, the first portable device 200 may have access wireless RF Protocol, which is equipped with a second portable device 200.

The analyte can include, for example, in the sample of whole blood, blood serum sample, a plasma sample of blood, other body fluids like IZH (interstitial fluid) and urine and fluids, which are not physiological.

Analytical d is tcic 400 includes space for liquid, designed for introducing sample of physiological fluid. For example, a puncture of a finger or other body part with obtaining the blood sample on the surface of the skin, the user can apply the Lancet or the scarificator. The user can then collect the blood sample by bringing analytical sensor 400 in contact with the sample. The space for the liquid may contain a reagent that reacts with the sample to show the concentration of an analyte in the sample.

Analytical sensor 400 may be an electrochemical sensor. Electrochemical analytical sensor typically includes multiple electrodes and a space for a liquid containing a certain enzyme. Space for liquid contains a reagent that is designed for the conversion of the analyte (e.g. glucose) in the sample fluid (e.g. blood) in a chemical compound, which can be measured by electrochemical method, electric current formed by the components of the electrode circuit. The reagent typically contains the enzyme, including, for example, glucose oxidase, responsive to the analyzed substance and an electron acceptor, for example ferricyanide salt, with the formation of compounds, which can be measured by electrochemical method and detecting electrodes. For the reaction with Glu is osoi can be used by other enzymes, including glucose dehydrogenase. In the General case, the enzyme is chosen so that it reacted with the desired target substance or substances in such a manner that contributed to obtaining information related to the analyzed substance (e.g., concentration) in the sample fluid. If you want to install the concentration of another analyte, for reaction with him to pick a suitable for this enzyme.

In another embodiment of the invention the analytical sensor 400 may be optical analytical sensor. In measuring systems based on optical sensors can be used such technologies as transmission spectroscopy, absorption spectroscopy, diffuse reflection, fluorescence spectroscopy, resonance energy transfer fluorescence, a combination of this and other, for measuring the concentration of the analyte. System indicator reagent and an analyte in a sample of physiological fluid react with changes in the permeability of light which is directed to the sensor 400. The rate of change of the light permeability is a measure for the concentration of an analyte in a physiological fluid.

Some commercially available analytical sensors that can be used include supply company Baer HealthCare LLC (Tarrytown, the state of new York). These analytical sensors include inter alia used in the control of glucose in the blood Ascensia® CONTOUR®, Ascensia® BREEZE® and BREEZE®2, Ascensia® Elite® and Elite® XL. Other analytical sensors, in addition to the above, can be used in methods and systems according to the present invention.

Shown in figure 3 meter 500 receives and uses analytical sensor 400. The 500 meter measures the concentration of the analyte in the sample collected analytical sensor 400. The probe 500 may have the contacts to electrodes for electrochemical detection the electrochemical reaction of the analytical sensor. In another embodiment of the invention the measuring device 500 may include a detector of optical signals to detect the rate of change of the light permeability of the optical analytical sensor. To calculate the actual concentration of the analyte, the resulting electrochemical or optical response measured by the measuring device 500, and, in General, to control the measurement procedure of the sample, the probe 500 uses at least one processor 510, which may execute software commands according to the algorithm. Data processed by the processor 510 may be stored in memory 520. In addition, the meter can have Paul obiteljski interface 570, which contains a display (e.g., liquid crystal display and the like). Buttons, scroll wheel, touch screens, or a combination of this can also be provided as part of the user interface 570 to enable the user to interact with the meter 500. The display typically displays information about the measurement results, measurement procedures and/or information in response to commands entered by the user

On figa and 8B shows that the battery 260 is located in the cap 202 of the interface element 250. Thus, the outside of the battery 260 is a cover of the interface, but the NTA 250. The battery 260 may be located inside the cap 202 according to the first orientation, that is, when the cap 202 is placed on the interface element 250, the battery 260 is connected to the interface element 250 and supplies power to the integrated device 800. On FIGU illustrated cap 202 in the second orientation, in which the battery 260 is in the offset position so that the battery 260 and the interface element 250 is not combined. Thus, in the second orientation of the battery 260 is not connected to the interface element 250 to conserve battery energy and extend service life. The cap 202 can be translated from the first orientation to the second and back by removing the cap 202, rotation of the cap 202 180 degrees and install the cap 202 back to the interface element 250. The battery 260 may contain at least one replaceable battery element. In another embodiment of the invention used non-rechargeable batteries that are attached to the cap 202, and in this case to use the new items, you need to replace the cap 202 as a whole.

On figa and 9B illustrates another integrated device 900, in many respects similar to the integrated device 800 described above. One end of the integrated device 900 includes an interface element 250 standard USB cap 202. Others who Goy the end of the integrated device 900 includes another cap 203, hosts analytical sensors 400. Caps 202 and 203 are interchangeable. Thus, during operation, the cap 202 is placed on the interface element 250 and connects the battery 260 to supply power, and the cap 203 is removed to provide access to the plates of the sensor 400 for sampling. For example, the cap 203 may contain several analytical sensors 400, which can be used to collect samples, and then analytical sensors 400 may communicate with the integrated device 800 to collect data samples. However, when integrated device 800 is not used, the cap 203 may be placed on the interface element 250 and the cap 202 can be placed on the other end of the integrated device 800. The cap 203 may provide adequate sealing of the ends of the integrated device 800 for proper storage of analytical sensors 400.

On figa illustrates another integrated device 1000, in many respects similar to the integrated device 600. Integrated device 1000 includes an interface element 250 USB standard in the main body 201. Cap 209 may be connected with the possibility of coupling with the main body 201 and placed on the interface element 250. Cap 209 contains the sensor 280 temperature and the corresponding scheme is at 281. The sensor 280 may include a thermocouple, a thermistor, termograficheskoe sensor and other Sensor 280 measures the temperature of the outer surface 204 of the cap 209 or near it. When the cap 209 is installed on the interface element 250, the sensor 280 is connected to an interface element 250, and the corresponding temperature data are transmitted to the processor of the integrated device 1000. In General, the temperature of the main body 201 may not correspond to the ambient temperature, since the main body 201 may store the heat generated during operation of the integrated device 1000. The temperature of the main body 201 may also depend on close other warm or cold items. For example, the main body 201 can be transferred to the body heat of the patient, when integrated device 1000 is in the hands of the user or otherwise located near the user's body. Because of its heat capacity, the main body 201 can be a very long time to reach thermal equilibrium with the environment. Because the outer surface 204 of the cap 209 has a weak thermal coupling with the main body 201, the temperature measured on the outer surface 204 or near, essentially depends on the temperature of the main body 201. In addition, the temperature sensor 280 reaches equilibrium with the environment much faster than jus the first housing 201. To accelerate the transition temperature of the outer surface 204 to the ambient temperature can be used radiator. As a result, the sensor 280 more accurately measures the ambient temperature. Temperature data received from the temperature sensor, can be used to determine the concentration of an analyte in a sample of physiological fluid (e.g., glucose concentration in the blood) according to reaction with the reagent in the measuring sensor 400. Because the level of response can be affected by temperature change reagent, to estimate the temperature of the reagent can be measured ambient temperature. Essentially, the integrated device 1000 may consider the sensitivity of the reagent to the temperature and in this way to more accurately calculate the concentration of an analyte in a sample.

On FIGU shows a cross-section of the cap 209 with sensor 280, which can be used with the integrated device 1000 shown in figa. In particular, the sensor 280 includes a thin membrane 205 part item 206 of the outer wall of the cap 209. Thin membrane 205 is characterized by low heat capacity and a large ratio of surface area to thickness, which helps to quickly reach thermal equilibrium of a thin membrane with the environment. Essentially, the sensor 280 measures the temperature of a thin membrane 205 to the achievements a more precise definition of ambient temperature. To minimize thermal conductivity, thin membrane 205 may be made of plastic or similar material, and the element 206 of the outer wall may be connected with the rest of the cap 209 so that there is at least one gap 207 between the element 206 of the outer wall and the rest of the cap 209. The gap 207 directs the flow of ambient air around a thin membrane 205 and in this way accelerates the alignment of the temperature of a thin membrane with ambient temperature. In another embodiment of the invention, the element 206 of the outer wall may have a very weak lock connection, which has gaps 207 and allows ambient air to flow around a thin membrane 205. Thin membrane 205 or element 206 of the outer wall at any damage can be replaced. Diagram of the sensor 281 temperature may include infrared (IR) sensor to measure the temperature of thin membrane 205. In another embodiment of the invention, a thin membrane 205 may be made of a thermochromic material that changes color with temperature change. In this case, the sensor 280 may include a light source, for example at least one laser led and the sensor, for example at least one photodiode. The light source transmits photons in thermochromic material, and the sensor receives the photons reflected the t thermochromic material and indicates the color of thermochromic material. In some embodiments, the execution circuit 281 can be placed in the main body 201, and not in the cap 209, while the thin membrane 205 or other design temperature sensor remains in the cap 209.

SUBSTANCE: in the method a type of the map is built and placed using logics determined by the map type component, corresponding to each visual element, besides, such logics may depend on one or more values of parameters of the map type component. Some of these values of parameters correspond to available values of map model parameters, and other ones are calculated using a model, which determines analytic ratios between parameters of the map model. Sequence of operations for building of map type may be fully controlled by data and may include a mechanism for canonisation of input data and linkage of canonised input data to model parameters.

EFFECT: expansion of functional capabilities, due to provision of generation of a layout controlled by infrastructure data, which depends on input data.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to medicine. In method realisation current values of each of parameters of clinical data characterising current state of cardiovascular system are measured and fixed. Results of assessment of values of clinical data parameters are transformed. Results of assessment of current values of each parameter of clinical data are fixed depending on time of performed measurements. Results of transformation of assessment of current values of each parameter of clinical data are visualised on plane, coinciding with plane of displaying multicolour screen of videomonitor. Information about dynamics of cardiovascular system state is obtained. Also performed is digitisation and weighting of fixed instant values of each parameter of clinical data in physical values. Three-dimensional image of cardiovascular system state AN(t) is created in form of totality of geometrical places of points in N-dimensional space of cardiovascular system states, with coordinates of each point of N-dimensional space of cardiovascular system states being determined by totality of non-invasively and invasively measured in physical values digitised instant values of various clinical data, which characterise current state of cardiovascular system. Two-dimensional images of cardiovascular system states A2(t) are formed in form of projections of formed AN(t) on plane, coinciding with plane of displaying multicolour screen of videomonitor. Coordinates in 2-dimensional state of cardiovascular system states of each point of formed A2(t) are memorised. Virtual three-dimensional models of various nosologic forms of cardiovascular system diseases Bi are built in form of totality of M-geometrical places of points in N-dimensional space of cardiovascular system state, where i=1; 2; 3;…M is the number of displayed diseases of cardiovascular system. Coordinates of each point of each of B are determined by totality of values of various clinical data in physical values, describing characteristic clinical-morphological picture of corresponding disease and degree of CVS pathology manifestation, respectively. Coordinates in N-dimensional space of cardiovascular system state of all points of three-dimensional images Bi are memorised. Two-dimensional models of various nosologic forms of cardiovascular system diseases B2i are formed in form of projections, formed by B2i on plane, coinciding with plane of displaying multicolout screen of videomonitor. Coordinates in 2-dimensional space of cardiovascular system state of all points formed by B2i are memorised. Formed B2i are visualised on screen of multicolour videomonitor in such a way that colour of each point B2i in visible ranges of wavelengths Δλr, Δλo, Δλy, Δλg, Δλb…Δλ,m corresponds to certain type of disease, and degree of pathology is characterised by value, inversely proportional to wavelength of respective range. Visualisation on screen of multicolour videomonitor of successively formed in time values A2(t) is also performed, with each previous value A2(t) being connected by means of straight lines with their following values, and colour of A2(t) and connecting straight lines is formed by addition of red (Δλr), green (Δλg) and blue (Δλb) colours with similar amplitude proportion. Check of satisfaction of set of conditions A2(t) ⊂ B2i is carried out. Decision about cardiovascular system disease is taken in case of satisfaction of a condition from set A2(t) ⊂ B2i. Ambiguity of taking decision about cardiovascular system disease is excluded if mutual intersections B2i are present, when instant value A2(t) simultaneously belongs to two and more B2i, by formation on screen of multicolour videomonitor of each of new images of state A2k(t) and non-intersecting images of diseases в2ik by respective k transmissions of origin of coordinates of N-dimensional space of cardiovascular system state into selected by cardiologist points on plane of multicolour screen of videomonitor and carrying out procedure of projecting A(t) and Bi on plane coinciding with plane of displaying multicolour screen of videomonitor and after each of k transmissions of origin of coordinates of N-dimensional space of cardiovascular system state, where k=1; 2; 3;…j. Formed A2k(t) and в2ik are visualised on screen of multicolour videomonitor. procedure of A2k(t) and в2ik formation is stopped when condition, when A2k(t) belongs only to one в2ik is satisfied. Decision about absence of disease is taken if condition A2(t) ⊄ B2i is satisfied. Assessment of dynamics of change of cardiovascular system state is performed by results of analysis of preliminarily determined values of quantities Δτ=A2(t1)-A2(t2) and dΔτdτ for specified time interval, where t1; t2 are moments of time of beginning and end of specified time interval respectively.

EFFECT: invention makes it possible to simplify process of operative analysis of clinical data by set of measured clinical signs and avoid mistakes in generation of medical control decision for diagnosing.

SUBSTANCE: under clinical conditions, when at any time there are several patients, there are central stations (10) of patient control, for instance, nursing units, for combination of the collected information relative to physiological parameters of patients. Data is displayed in several subwindows (22) of the display (18) of the control station (10). Due to certain limitations for dimensions of the display (18), it is often difficult to distinguish data displayed in subwindows (22), or even display all collected data. The user may expand any such subwindow (22) into a scale-variable subwindow (32), which provides for more functions than any other subwindow (22), without full coverage or adjustment of size of any other subwindow (22).

EFFECT: improved access to information.
