  • Publication number: 20200261648
    Abstract: A drug delivery device is provided that includes an on-board controller to determine when proper placement on the patient's body has occurred as well as an amount of drug delivered to the patient. The controller can also be used to determine if and when the proper placement has been disturbed during drug delivery and/or if less than a full dose of the drug has been dispensed.

  • Publication number: 20200238006
    Abstract: Systems and methods for injecting a drug and detecting tissue induced back pressure are disclosed. A drug delivery system may include a reservoir filled or fillable with a drug, an administration member connected or connectable in fluid communication with the reservoir, a drive assembly, and a pressure sensor. The administration member may be configured for insertion into and subsequently retraction from a patient. The drive assembly may be configured to urge the drug from the reservoir to deliver a dose of the drug to the patient via the administration member. The pressure sensor may be configured to detect tissue back pressure during use of the drug delivery system, including after dose completion and prior to retraction of the administration member. The drug delivery system may be controlled in a manner that accounts for the tissue back pressure measurement.

  • Publication number: 20200238005
    Abstract: Systems and methods for drug delivery with pressure sensitive control are disclosed. A drug delivery system may include a reservoir filled or fillable with a drug, a drug delivery device coupled to the reservoir to deliver the drug from the reservoir to a patient, a pressure sensor, an output device, and a controller. The controller may be configured to determine if the drug delivery device has completed delivering a dose of the drug to the patient, and if delivery of the dose of the drug is complete, to measure tissue back pressure using the pressure sensor. Subsequently, the controller may be configured to determine if the tissue back pressure is below a first predetermined value, and if so, control the output device at least once and/or control a mechanism to retract an administration member from the patient.

  • Publication number: 20190275241
    Abstract: A drug delivery device includes a housing defining a shell and an inner volume, a container, a drive mechanism, a needle assembly, a fluid flow connection, and a backflow prevention mechanism. The container has an inner volume to contain a medicament to be administered to a user. The drive mechanism is at least partially disposed within the housing and exerts a force to urge the medicament out the container. The fluid flow connection is coupled to the container and the needle assembly and allows the medicament to flow from the container to the needle assembly to be administered. The backflow prevention mechanism is associated with at least one of the container, the fluid flow connection, or the needle assembly and includes at least one flow restrictor to restrict a fluid from flowing from the needle assembly to the container.
