  • Publication number: 20190133386
    Abstract: A dispenser includes a dispenser body having an interior cavity, and an aperture that communicates with the interior cavity. The dispenser also includes a loading door and a lid. The lid engages a dispenser surface when in the closed position to thereby create a substantially gas impermeable seal. The dispenser further includes a mounting surface disposed within the interior cavity and proximal the aperture. The mounting surface includes a mounting interface that permits substantially gas impermeable mounting of a cartridge while permitting access to the cartridge from the exterior of the dispensing body through the aperture.

  • Publication number: 20190136883
    Abstract: An accessory clamp for use with a rod includes an accessory interface and a corresponding rod clamp. The accessory interface includes at least one of at least one accessory hook and at least one accessory T-slot. By one approach, at least one of the accessory hooks comprises a pivoting accessory hook. By one approach the rod clamp can comprise a universal rod clamp. As one example in these regards, the universal rod clamp can include a selectively variable gripping surface to accommodate a variety of rod diameters. By one approach the accessory interface and the corresponding rod clamp can pivot with respect to one another.

  • Publication number: 20190117327
    Abstract: A protective cover (800) for a medical device includes a body (700) and a cap (100) that is selectively attachable to the body. The cap 100 includes an annulus 101 and a rounded vault (102) spanning an interior portion (118) of the annulus. The rounded vault defines a convex exterior (301). A plurality of partial arch trusses (103,104,105,106,107,108,109) extends from the annulus along the convex exterior toward an apex (601) of the convex exterior. Distal ends (613,614,615,616,617,618,619) of the plurality of partial arch trusses define an interstice (611) at the apex. The partial arch trusses provide longitudinal deflection of impact forces to protect the medical device.

  • Publication number: 20180154117
    Abstract: In one aspect, a catheter securement device comprises a body portion having an upper surface and a lower surface, the body portion having a pocket that comprises a substantially tubular channel, the channel being open at the upper surface, the pocket further including a port cavity in communication with the channel. The securement device further comprises a strap portion movable between a fully closed position and a range of open positions. The strap portion at least partially covers the pocket when in a closed position thereby closing the channel at the upper surface. The strap portion allows access to the channel when in an open position.

  • Patent number: 9884143
    Abstract: A medical personal-services suction handle includes a hand-graspable housing and a primary suction pathway disposed through the hand-graspable housing and having a suction line port at one end and an intake port at an opposing end thereof. An on/off valve disposed at least partially within the primary suction pathway has a user-manipulable interface by which the on/off valve selectively opens the primary suction pathway and occludes the primary suction pathway. A user-engageable pneumatic pathway serves, when selectively engaged, to pneumatically couple the primary suction pathway to a secondary external port in the hand-graspable housing such that suction is applied via the primary suction pathway to both the intake port and the secondary external port. By one approach the secondary external port comprises a thumb-control port.

  • Publication number: 20170296283
    Abstract: A medical kit 100 includes a drape 1323. A plurality of pockets (1302,1303,1304,1305, 1306,1307) are disposed along a bottom edge of the drape 1323 in a linear, side-by-side arrangement. A plurality of medical implements (1310,1311,1312,1313,1314,1315) are stowed in the plurality of pockets on a one-to-one basis. Medical indicia (1316,1317,1318,1319,1320,1321) is disposed along each pocket. The medical indicia can include one or more educational prompts that instruct medical personnel how to use a particular medical implement disposed in a pocket to complete a central catheter dressing change.
