ROUTING METHODS FOR MULTIPLE GEOGRAPHICAL ENTITIES

TECHNION RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION, University of Toronto, YISSUM RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT COMPANY OF THE HEBREWUNIVERSITY OF JERUSALEM

Routing method for computing routes over uncertain geo-spatial data whereby only upon visiting the geographic entities it can be determined whether the needed service or product is actually provided and is adequate. When dealing with uncertain data, the returned route may need to go via several entities of the same type. Another routing method consists of finding an efficient and effective route from a starting point to an ending point going trough a predetermined number of objects, wherein...

ANXIETY METER

Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital

Methods and systems for detection of anxiety using physiological signals. The detection of anxiety may take place in real-time and in a naturalistic setting. A modified Kalman filter may be used.

METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR MULTIMODAL DEEP TRAFFIC SIGNAL CONTROL

University of Toronto

There is provided a system and method for traffic signal control for an intersection of a traffic network. The method includes: receiving sensor readings including a plurality of physical characteristics associated with vehicles approaching the intersection; discretizing the sensor readings based on a grid of cells; associating a value representing the physical characteristic for each of the cells; generating a matrix associated with the physical characteristic; combining each matrix...

MODULATION OF CALCIUM ION HOMEOSTASIS IN HARVESTED TRANSPLANTABLE HEARTS

University of Manitoba

An oxygenated cardioplegic composition for immediate reperfusion of a donor heart after its procurement. The composition comprises an adenosine- lidocaine mixture for causing immediate cessation of the heart's systolic function upon contact; a normokalemic concentration of potassium ions; a concentration of Ca2+ ions selected to maintain the intracellular level of Ca2+ ions in the harvested heart muscle cells at about 10-4 mmol/L; and a pH of 6.9. The oxygenated cardioplegic composition is...

NOVEL COMPOSITION AND SOLUTION WITH CONTROLLED CALCIUM ION LEVEL, AND RELATED METHOD AND USE FOR REPERFUSION

University of Manitoba

A solution comprises a preservation mixture comprising a calcium ion source; and a buffer for maintaining a pH of the solution. The molar concentration of calcium ion (Ca2+) in the solution is from 0.18 to 0.26 mmol/L, and the pH is lower than 7.4 and higher than 6.6. A composition for preparing the solution may comprise adenosine, lidocaine, and a calcium source, wherein the molar ratio of adenosine:calcium is from 0.3:0.26 to 0.45:0.18, and the molar ratio of lidocaine:calcium is from...

APPARATUS FOR MAINTENANCE OF HARVESTED HEARTS FOR TRANSPLANTING

University of Manitoba

An apparatus, a system, and methods for maintaining and monitoring an excised donor heart. The apparatus comprises a first component for receiving and submerging therein an excised heart in a constantly circulating perfusate solution and a second component comprising equipment for adjusting the temperature and oxygen content of the perfusate solution. The first component comprises an integral pair of defibrillating pads. A first conduit infrastructure interconnects the first module, the...

APPARATUS FOR TESTING, ASSESSMENT, AND MAINTENANCE OF HARVESTED HEARTS FOR TRANSPLANTING

University of Manitoba
