  • Publication number: 20200155823
    Abstract: A medical connector for providing a sterile connection between a multi-use portion and a single-use portion of a fluid delivery system is provided. The medical connector includes a fluid inlet port configured for removable engagement with a connection port of a multi-use disposable set (MUDS) to establish a fluid connection therewith and a waste outlet port configured for removable engagement with a waste inlet port of the MUDS to establish a fluid connection therewith. A patient fluid line is connected, at a first end, to the fluid inlet port and connected, at a second end, to the waste outlet port. Fluid flow through the patient fluid line is unidirectional from the first end to the second end. The patient fluid line is configured for being disconnected from the waste outlet port for delivering fluid to a patient. A multi-fluid delivery system having the medical connector and MUDS is also provided.

  • Publication number: 20200038580
    Abstract: A fluid injector system includes a powered fluid injector, a connection port configured to receive a single-use disposable set having tubing connected to a fluid inlet port at a first end and connected to a waste outlet port at a second end, and a detector associated with the connection port and configured to generate a signal in response to a sonic, infrasonic, or ultrasonic wave emitted from the single-use disposable set during a priming operation of the single-use disposable set. In some examples, the detector is configured to generate a signal if the frequency of the wave emitted from the single-use disposable set is outside a predetermined range of frequencies corresponding to a predetermined range of frequencies of air expelled from the tubing. A method for detecting the multiple uses of a single-use disposable set connected to a fluid injector system is also provided.

  • Patent number: 10137294
    Abstract: A method for protecting a pressure transducer from fluid pressure damage using a pressure isolation mechanism is disclosed. The method includes associating the pressure transducer with an isolation port of the pressure isolation mechanism, placing a pressurizing device for delivering fluid under pressure in fluid connection with an inlet port of the pressure isolation mechanism, and actuating the pressurizing device to cause fluid flow in the inlet port such that a free floating, fluid flow responsive valve member positioned in an internal cavity of the pressure isolation mechanism engages a seal seat therein to attain a closed position, preventing fluid flow between the inlet port and the isolation port and thus prevent overpressure in the isolation port. Hemodynamic pressure signals read with the pressure transducer may be transmitted at least in part through a body of the valve member, or a portion thereof, when in the closed position.

  • Patent number: 9895527
    Abstract: A pressure isolation mechanism including a valve housing which defines a first lumen associated with a pressurizing device, a second lumen associated with an input line which connects a low pressure fluid delivery system to the valve housing, and a pressure isolation port is disclosed. The pressure isolation mechanism further includes a first valve having a normally open position permitting fluid communication between the first lumen and the second lumen and movable to a closed position when fluid pressure in the first lumen reaches a predetermined pressure level, and a second valve disposed within the second lumen and regulating fluid flow through the second lumen, wherein the second valve substantially isolates the input line from a pressure transducer connected to the pressure isolation port. A method for correcting for dampened hemodynamic blood pressure signals in a fluid delivery system which includes the pressure isolation mechanism is also described.
