Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR CONTROLLING THE OPERATIONAL STATE OF A MEDICAL DEVICE
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to systems and methods for controlling the operational state of a medical device that has a power source. In one implementation, a method is provided for controlling the operational state of the medical device. The method may include periodically measuring at least one variable using a sensor of the medical device and determine, based on the periodically measured at least one variable, whether one or more transition conditions are satisfied. The method may also include transitioning the medical device from a low-power operational state into an active operational state when it is determined that the one or more transition conditions are satisfied, wherein the low-power operational state draws less current from the power source than the active operational state.
