Research Abstract
The Pediatric Pulmonary Division is engaged in research studying the effects of various inhaled bronchodilators, including inhaled diuretics, on pulmonary mechanics in infants and children. In addition to conducting physiological measurements in the laboratory, the division is engaged in studies of certain lymphokines and cytokines and their effect on chronic inflammatory lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis, bronchopulmonary dysplasia and reactive airway disease. Certain cytokines are manipulated pharmacologically.

Eliezer Nussbaum has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

Sleep apnea ball valve device with bleed for exhaling
Patent number: 10888684
Abstract: A sleep apnea device with bleed for exhaling including a peripheral wall formed with an interior through passage formed with a proximally facing seat, bleed passages in the wall bypassing the seat and a ball to close against the seat.
Type: Grant
Filed: August 23, 2018
Date of Patent: January 12, 2021
Inventors: Eliezer Nussbaum, Carl Kramer

Sleep apnea cannula head harness device
Patent number: 10751501
Abstract: A sleep apnea cannula harness device including sleep apnea cannula bodies configured with distal radial flanges of predetermined exterior diameters and cylindrical elastic barrel walls defining barrels, the walls having a relaxed configuration with the inside diameters smaller than the predetermined diameters so the peripheral walls will grip the exterior diameters of the cannula bodies. The barrel walls are formed distally with annular cups receiving diametrically enlarged flanges of the cannula bodies and being formed with posteriorly facing clearance notches to confront the patient's upper lip and provide clearance for such upper lip.
Type: Grant
Filed: October 21, 2016
Date of Patent: August 25, 2020
Assignee: The Regents of the University of California
Inventors: Eliezer Nussbaum, Carl Kramer

Sleep apnea device to positively block exhaling and method of use
Patent number: 10391273
Abstract: Nasal cannula devices formed with through air-flow passages and circular membranes anchored centrally to retainers and operative upon inhaling by the patient to raise off the peripheral edges of respective seats for free flow of air into the nasal passages and, further, operative upon exhalation by the patient to seat on the seats. The invention further includes a method introducing the cannula devices with cushioning rings to cushion against the walls of the walls of the nasal passages. In another method the invention includes manufacturing a barrel with proximal and distal glands to friction fit on a shell fom1ed in the body of the cannula and receiving an annular retainer friction fit in the distal cannula to mount a sealing membrane.
Type: Grant
Filed: June 22, 2015
Date of Patent: August 27, 2019
Assignee: The Regents of the University of California
Inventor: Eliezer Nussbaum
