Wound fluid blood detection systems and methods are described that are operable in conjunction with reduced pressure wound treatment (RPWT) systems, as well as ancillary therapy and monitoring systems applied concurrently with RPWT systems. The blood detection monitor operates by optically characterizing the content of wound fluids to the extent of identifying percentage blood content. This identification relies upon the transmission of select wavelengths of light across a volume of wound fluid to a photo detector (connected to signal processing instrumentation) capable of quantifying the absorption characteristics of the fluid. The detection components may be implemented in conjunction with either a fluid flow conduit (i.e. the reduced pressure tubing directing fluid away from the wound dressing) or more directly in association with the materials that comprise the wound dressing positioned within the wound bed itself. In addition, the present invention is configured to operate in conjunction with blood gas monitoring systems operating with the RPWT. Finally, the components of the systems that serve to illuminate the wound bed, lend themselves to use in conjunction with illumination in discreet electromagnetic wave wavelengths suitable for the application of phototherapy.

Heat Transfer Device and Manufacturing Method Thereof Using Hydrophilic Wick

Provided is a flat panel type heat transfer device for effectively dissipating heat generated from a heat source in contact with a casing, comprising the casing sealed and having a certain shape, a coolant loaded in the casing and undergoing phase transition, one or more flat panel type hydrophilic wick structures in contact with at least a portion of an inner surface of the casing, manufactured by aggregating fibers capable of absorbing the coolant, and providing a coolant passage leading the coolant to flow in a direction parallel to the inner surface of the casing, and one or more support structures, each having a plurality of through holes which provide coolant passages through which coolant in a vapor phase or a liquid phase flows, while supporting the hydrophilic wick structure such that the hydrophilic wick structure is in close contact with the inner surface of the casing, wherein the coolant fills a portion of a space in the casing and circulates in the space in a manner such that the coolant flows through the hydrophilic wick structure by means of capillary force generated in fine passages formed in the hydrophilic wick structure toward a relatively hot point, is evaporated by heat from a heat source, flows in a vapor phase toward a relatively low temperature point, condenses at the relatively low temperature point, flows back in a liquid phase to the relatively hot point, and repeats the cycle of evaporation and condensation.
