  • Publication number: 20220401640
    Abstract: An infusion pump can determine and display what the drug load is inside of a patient by taking into account various factors such as drug half-life, pump pauses, and delays while a drug moves from a pump to a patient. A pump can also calculate and provide times when: medication will reach the patient; the drug concentration will reach a specified level; and a physiological response is expected. The pump can compensate for pauses in the delivery—for example, by infusing larger boluses of the drug into the patient within safe boundaries for concentration and timing. The pump can also predict what the drug load or concentration will be in the patient over time after the infusion stops by providing a graph, and in some cases act on such predictions by changing a flow rate or other parameters.

  • Patent number: 10300193
    Abstract: A controller for a programmable medical pump is configured to select a drug library file that corresponds to a received medication name and determine a number of times status information is received within a designated time period from a current time during an infusion therapy. The example controller is also configured to determine if the number of times the status information is received comports with an accumulated medication dosage limit using a dose per administration program parameter. Responsive to the number of times the status information is received matching or exceeding the accumulated medication dosage limit, the controller is configured to prevent another administration of the medication until enough time has passed such that the number of times the status information has been received within the designated time period from the current time is less than the accumulated medication dosage limit.

  • Patent number: 9333291
    Abstract: Enables an infusion pump battery capacity management and battery charge alert system and method including an infusion pump with rechargeable batteries, a controller, a computer and a user interface. The infusion pump accepts a programmed infusion and selects a battery capacity assessment option to determine one or more recharge options of the batteries, and may optionally select a program delay option to execute an infusion delay and later select the battery capacity assessment option. During the battery capacity assessment option, the infusion pump calculates an anticipated power capacity requirement to execute the programmed infusion, calculates a remaining battery power capacity, compares the calculated anticipated power capacity requirement to the calculated remaining battery power capacity, and determines whether the infusion pump is able to fully execute the programmed infusion based only on the remaining battery power capacity or whether a recharge is required.

  • Patent number: 9272089
    Abstract: A differential pressure based flow sensor assembly and method of using the same to determine the rate of fluid flow in a fluid system. The sensor assembly comprises a disposable portion and a reusable portion. A flow restricting element is positioned along a fluid flow passage between an inlet and an outlet. The disposable portion further has an upstream fluid pressure membrane and a downstream fluid pressure membrane. The reusable portion has an upstream fluid pressure sensor and a downstream fluid pressure sensor. The upstream fluid pressure sensor senses the upstream fluid pressure at a location within the fluid flow passage between the inlet and the flow restricting element. The downstream fluid pressure sensor senses the downstream fluid pressure at a location within the fluid flow passage between the flow restricting element and the outlet. The process utilizes output of the sensors to calculate the flow rate of the fluid.

  • Patent number: 8672876
    Abstract: A fluid delivery system having a closed-loop control process for delivering a medical fluid to a patient. A fluid infusion system includes a pump for delivering a fluid to a patient via an administration tube. A flow sensor associated with the administration tube provides an indication of the actual flow rate of fluid in the administration tube. Such a flow sensor may comprise a positive displacement flow sensor constructed using micro-fabrication and/or micro-molding techniques. A reader reads the actual flow rate signal and provides an indication to a controller for controlling the pump. The flow rate information can also be used for providing status information, such as the existence of a blockage in the fluid delivery system.

  • Patent number: 8657778
    Abstract: A disposable assembly for use with a sensor assembly comprises a body, a flow restricting element, and a fluid pressure membrane. The body has a lid portion and a base portion. The body defines a fluid flow passage that forms an inlet and an outlet. The flow restricting element is positioned in the fluid flow passage between the inlet and the outlet. The membrane is located between the lid and base portions along the fluid flow passage. A reinforcing structure, such as a ring or a rigid disk, is positioned between the fluid pressure membrane and the lid portion to provide increased resistance to pressure in the fluid flow passage. The ring or disk can be a separate component or formed on the membrane. The membrane thickness adjacent to sensor access openings in the lid portion can be increased for pressure resistance, too.

  • Patent number: 8523797
    Abstract: A point of care fluid testing system for determining properties of a fluid comprises a patient connection, a primary fluid routing portion, a pump, a secondary fluid routing portion, and a flushing fluid connection. The patient connection connects the system to a patient. The primary fluid routing portion has a pump region, a fluid transfer region, and an in-line testing region. The pump region pumps the fluid sample from the patient to the testing portion and back to the patient. The in-line testing region evaluates a first characteristic of the fluid sample. The fluid transfer region transmits a portion of the fluid sample out of the primary fluid routing portion. The secondary fluid routing portion includes an off-line testing portion that receives the portion of the fluid sample transmitted from the fluid transfer region. The off-line testing portion evaluates a second characteristic of the fluid sample.
