  • Patent number: 7938816
    Abstract: The invention relates to a medical bag which is intended for the infusion of a medicament by means of gravity. The inventive bag comprises: at least two compartments, namely a first compartment (1) containing a medicament in the form of a solution and a second compartment (2) containing a rinsing solution; and means for separating/communicating the compartments, which prevent the rinsing solution from automatically entering the medicament compartment except at the end of the infusion period. The rinsing solution ends the infusion, by rinsing the medicament bag and the infusion line, such as to prevent any risk of contamination or leakage of residual medicament from the bag or line.

  • Publication number: 20090024095
    Abstract: The invention concerns a syringe comprising: a body including a cylindrical side wall having an open upstream end with an inner annular rim and a downstream end closed by a transverse wall provided with an orifice; a shaft equipped with a plunger having at least two annular sealing lips between which is defined at least one annular chamber. The shaft, which can slide inside the body, defines inside the body an inner chamber designed to be at least partly filled with a content. Delivery passages provided inside the body are configured to communication said annular chamber of the plunger with the outside of the body or with the inner chamber of the body, when the plunger is abutting against the annular rim.

  • Patent number: 6416498
    Abstract: This device comprises: a syringe body equipped with an access which may be connected in succession to a filling member, such as a needle, and to an infusion line fitted with a non-return valve to allow liquid to pass from the syringe into the line; a housing mounted so that it can slide in leaktight fashion inside the body so as to vary the volume of a chamber which it delimits with the body of the syringe; an element which, forming a piston, mounted on the housing and in contact with the chamber, is able, according to its position, to create a raised pressure or reduced pressure in the chamber; means for moving the piston-forming element back and forth.

  • Patent number: 5807346
    Abstract: A metering instrument for dispensing several doses of a liquid includes a tubular body designed to be held by the user, a reservoir containing the liquid, a movable tail mounted inside and on the axis of body, and a pusher grippable by the user and mounted translationally in the body. The tail has a rack constituted by successive annular notches, and the body has several axial slots distributed over its periphery. The pusher includes an outwardly projecting pin that is designed to engage one of the axial slots of the body.

  • Patent number: 5779677
    Abstract: The injector has a reservoir containing a drug. The injector has a tubular body with a tubular wall, a plunger, a needle and a plunger rod. The tubular body also has two springs. The first spring is compressed from bearing on a part of the inner surface of the tubular body and on a piece that is connected to the plunger rod. The first spring pushes in the direction in which the needle protrudes. The second spring acts in the opposite direction of the first spring. The second spring is compressed by bearing on a part of the inner surface of the injector body and on a ring. The force exerted by the second spring is greater than that exerted by the first spring. The ring is slidably mounted and is capable of entraining the reservoir in the direction of the retraction of the needle. The ring is blocked by a movable abutment. The plunger rod cooperates with the movable abutment to release the second spring and cause the retraction of the needle.

  • Patent number: 4200209
    Abstract: A device for stoppering and connecting a container containing a sterile liquid comprises a pair of hollow cup-like elements aligned coaxially and sealed together along their peripheries in a fluid-tight manner; a disk formed of a fluid-tight, pierceable elastomeric material located between the two hollow cup-like elements, the disk serving to seal the interior of the upstream cup-like element from becoming contaminated while permitting successive passages of materials therethrough, the upstream cup-like element having a hollow extension for connection to the container or to a tube coming from the container; and the downstream cup-like element having a closed extension with a weakened separation line between the extension and the downstream cup-like element whereby the extension may be broken under stress from the downstream cup-like element to provide access to the elastomeric disk.
