WO/2015/041547 NASAL CANNULA WITH TURBULATION ELEMENTS||WO||26.03.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/000205||FISHER & PAYKEL HEALTHCARE LIMITED||GULLIVER, Laurence|
Nasal cannulas for providing respiratory therapy to patients can have a curved prong section that has turbulation elements on the inside curve of the prong. A flow of breathing gas moving through the prong may incur less resistance and create less noise when flowing through such a prong due to the promotion of favorable flow dynamics.
WO/2015/041546 NASAL CANNULA WITH FLOW RESTRICTOR||WO||26.03.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/000204||FISHER & PAYKEL HEALTHCARE LIMITED||GULLIVER, Laurence|
Nasal cannulas for providing respiratory therapy to patients can have a body, two prongs extending from the body, and a gases inlet on one side of the body. There can be a throttle or internal localized reduction in the cross-sectional area of a cavity defined by the internal walls of the cannula body in between the prongs. In at least some arrangements, the throttle can partially or substantially fully equalize flow between the prongs of the cannula.
WO/2015/041544 BEE VENOM COMPOSITIONS AND USES||WO||26.03.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/000199||HONEYLAB LIMITED||HOLT, Shaun Lister|
This invention relates to compositions comprising bee venom and an extract of a plant of the genus Capsicum, such as Capsicum annuum, and their uses for ameliorating the symptoms of arthritis, joint pain, muscle pain, sports injury, multiple sclerosis, shingles, migraine or musculoskeletal disorders or conditions.
WO/2015/041545 VALVE WITH INTERNAL MEMBER||WO||26.03.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/000203||FISHER & PAYKEL HEALTHCARE LIMITED||ARROWSMITH, Mark John|
A valve with an internal member is disclosed which allows exhaled carbon dioxide to escape from a breathing circuit when the circuit gas pressure drops below a threshold pressure. The valve operates by occluding one or more ports under a relatively high pressure and opening the one or more ports under a relatively low pressure. The internal member is attached to the body of the valve at two or more locations on the internal member. The internal member moves in a direction perpendicular to the gas flow through the valve.
WO/2015/038009 MARINE LIFTING VESSEL||WO||19.03.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/000195||THOM, Donald, Scott||THOM, Donald, Scott|
For a self-powered marine lifting vessel or catamaran having static buoyancy, a working deck is forcibly raised or lowered by flexing or extending each of a plurality of articulated pairs of fixedly mounted support beams connecting each hull and the deck. One version uses locally applied forces at the joints from adjacent hydraulic cylinders, incidentally causing the hulls to rotate about their axes. Another version forces the hulls to rotate axially from a non-rotating aft inter-hull linkage. Applications include routine harbour maintenance and hull cleaning, then emergency marine pollution including oil cleanup at a polluted site.
WO/2015/038011 SAW APPARATUS WITH CHAIN STRETCH DETECTION||WO||19.03.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/000197||WARATAH NZ LIMITED||KAYE, Brett James|
A saw apparatus (10) is provided, in which a chain support (36) attached movably to a mount (62) for movement relative thereto. An endless cutting chain (34) is trained about the chain support (36) and a chain driver (38), with a chain tensioner (90) urging the chain support (36) to move relative to the mount (62) to tension the chain (34), and a sensor (102) positioned to sense a position of the chain support (36) relative to the mount (62).
WO/2015/038014 HUMIDIFICATION SYSTEM||WO||19.03.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/000202||FISHER AND PAYKEL HEALTHCARE LIMITED||JACKSON, John James|
A humidification system can include a heater base, a chamber, and a breathing circuit. The heater base includes a heater plate positioned in a recessed region, and a heat conductive portion of the chamber is configured to contact the heater plate. The heater base includes a guard configured to control movement of the chamber into and out of the recessed region. The guard includes an anti-racking mechanism. The system can detect when breathing circuits are connected in reverse. Methods of controlling the respiratory humidification system are described, including determining whether an outlet port temperature has increased by more than a predetermined amount in a predetermined time, or setting a target dew point. The system may comprise an inspiratory conduit comprising an identification component that outputs a signal to a controller configured to control power to a heater plate.
WO/2015/038012 WATERBORNE COMPOSITIONS||WO||19.03.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/000200||VICTORIA LINK LIMITED||DAINES, Alison Margaret|
The present invention provides for compositions comprising at least one polyketone; and at least one acyl hydrazide; wherein, the polyketone comprises at least two levulinic acid moieties. The present inventions also provide for novel polyhydrazone compounds. Examples of completely water-soluble compositions comprising acyl hydrazide and polyketone that form polyhydrazones compounds are provided herein. The compositions and polyhydrazones of the present invention are useful in the preparation of coating materials and the formation of films.
WO/2015/038006 FLUID CONTAINER||WO||19.03.2015|
||PCT/NZ2014/000181||BIOMAXA LIMITED||BEST, Darryl John|
A container for storage and delivery of a fluid such as chain lubricant. The container comprises a receptacle inside which the fluid is stored; a shaped delivery member fitted to the receptacle wherein the top of the delivery member narrows to a point; a nozzle from which fluid inside the container is dispensed located at, and which sits proud of, the point of the delivery member. The delivery member comprises two projections extending from the point of the delivery member adjacent the nozzle, the projections opposing each other about a vertical plane and the nozzle is off set relative to a central vertical container axis. The container assists the user in delivering the fluid to a substrate in an ergonomic manner whilst also allowing the user to at least partially see the fluid being dispensed.
