  • Publication number: 20140222020
    Abstract: An instrument channel device for receiving a medical instrument having a distal tip includes an elongate tubular shaft including a proximal shaft portion and a distal shaft portion positionable within a body cavity. The shaft defines a lumen for passage of the distal tip of a flexible medical instrument therethrough, allowing positioning of the medical instrument such that its distal tip is disposed distally of the distal shaft portion. A telescoping reinforcement is positioned on the distal shaft portion. The reinforcement has a collapsed position in which the telescoping reinforcement has a length that is shorter than the length of the telescoping reinforcement in an expanded position. As an instrument is advanced from the distal end of the lumen, the telescoping reinforcement is engaged by a distal portion of the instrument such that advancement of the distal tip to a position beyond a distal end of the telescoping reinforcement moves the telescoping reinforcement to the expanded position.

  • Patent number: 8636703
    Abstract: A syringe needle safety apparatus comprising a syringe barrel having an open end and an opposite end adapted for a needle and a needle safety cover displaceable between a un-deployed state wherein the cover is constrained and the needle exposed, and a deployed state wherein the cover covers at least the needle tip. A plunger is slidably engaged in the syringe barrel and at least one element secures the needle safety cover in the un-deployed state. Biasing means urge the needle safety cover from the un-deployed state to the deployed state, and a housing is coupled to the opposite end of the syringe barrel, the housing comprising a corresponding securing member and a deformable member, the deformable member releasing the at least one element from the corresponding securing member upon receiving a releasing force via the plunger. During deployment, the needle safety mechanism provides for the needle safety cover to avoid contact with the needle, reducing or eliminating blood contact.

  • Patent number: 7743799
    Abstract: A vial adapter is described comprising a housing, the housing comprising an expandable chamber to contain a volume, an internal passage in communication with the expandable chamber, at least one opening in communication with the internal passage, and an access member integral with the housing. A hollow spike comprising a proximal end is integral with the housing and a distal end. The spike comprises a vent lumen open at the distal end and a fluid lumen open at the distal end, the vent lumen is in communication with the internal passage and the fluid lumen is in communication with the access member. A first check valve restricts communication from the expandable chamber to the internal passage, and a second check valve restricts communication from the internal passage to the opening. Methods of reconstituting and/or withdrawing hazardous material using the vial adapter are described.
