  • Publication number: 20160287785
    Abstract: An intravenous delivery system may operate by gravity feed, and may have a liquid source containing a liquid, a drip unit that receives the liquid from the liquid source, and tubing that receives the liquid from the drip unit for delivery to a patient. A flow rate sensor may be used to measure a flow rate of liquid through the intravenous delivery system, and may generate a flow rate signal indicative of the flow rate. A controller may receive the signal, and may compare the flow rate with a desired flow rate. If the flow rate is more or less than the desired flow rate, the controller may transmit a control signal to a flow rate regulator. The flow rate regulator may receive the control signal and, in response, modify the flow rate to bring the flow rate closer to the desired flow rate.

  • Publication number: 20160262679
    Abstract: A biological fluid collection device includes a collection module and an outer housing. The collection module includes a housing comprising a first end having a sample introduction opening, a second end having a sample dispensing opening, and a passageway extending between the sample introduction opening and the sample dispensing opening. A mixing chamber and a holding chamber are in fluid communication with the passageway such that a sample introduced into the sample introduction opening passes through the mixing chamber and subsequently into the holding chamber. The biological fluid collection device further includes a closure covering the first end, a cap covering the second end and including a vented plug, and an activation member adapted to force a sample contained in the holding chamber out of the sample dispensing opening. The collection module is positioned inside of the outer housing and the closure closes the open end of the outer housing.

  • Publication number: 20160220160
    Abstract: A specimen transfer device adapted to receive a blood sample is disclosed. The specimen transfer device includes a housing and an actuation member. A deformable material is disposed within the housing and is deformable from an initial position in which the material is adapted to hold the sample to a deformed position in which at least a portion of the sample is released from the material. A viscoelastic member is disposed within the housing between the material and the housing and between the material and the actuation member. The viscoelastic member is engaged with the actuation member and the material such that movement of the actuation member from a first position to a second position deforms the material from the initial position to the deformed position.

  • Publication number: 20160103046
    Abstract: A specimen mixing and transfer device adapted to receive a sample is disclosed. The specimen mixing and transfer device includes a housing, a material including pores that is disposed within the housing, and a dry anticoagulant powder within the pores of the material. In one embodiment, the material is a sponge material. In other embodiments, the material is an open cell foam. In one embodiment, the material is treated with an anticoagulant to form a dry anticoagulant powder finely distributed throughout the pores of the material. A blood sample may be received within the specimen mixing and transfer device. The blood sample is exposed to and mixes with the anticoagulant powder while passing through the material.

  • Patent number: 9289557
    Abstract: A stopper adapted for attachment with a plunger rod for use within a syringe barrel includes a main body portion defining an open rearward end configured to receive the plunger rod. The main body portion is manufactured from a rigid or semi-rigid polymeric material having an elastic modulus in the range of about 0.01 GPa to about 5 GPa. When fluid pressure is increased inside the syringe barrel during an injection, at least one of the following actions occurs: a) a flexible roof of the main body portion expands in a radial direction toward an inner wall of the syringe barrel; b) a first perimetrical skirt extending around an outer circumference of the main body portion is forced against an inner wall of the syringe barrel; and c) an engagement between the plunger rod and an engagement portion provided along an inner circumference of the main body portion.

  • Patent number: 9099074
    Abstract: Acoustic insulation comprising tuned resonant absorbers to absorb sound energy and prevent it from being emitted and a method of installation of the acoustic insulation. The acoustic insulation is preferably placed or sprayed by a thermal spray process. The resonant absorbers are strategically placed in the placed or thermally sprayed material to maximize sound absorption. Discrete mass absorbers may be sealed or left open.

  • Publication number: 20150082746
    Abstract: A device for transferring fluids includes a piercing member having a distal end and a proximal end and defines a longitudinal fluid channel. An opening is positioned at the distal end of the piercing member with the opening in fluid communication with the longitudinal fluid channel. Further, a sleeve having a proximal end and a distal end includes an extended position where the sleeve surrounds the piercing member and a retracted position where the sleeve is retracted from the distal end of the piercing member. The sleeve defines an opening at the distal end of the sleeve with a gap defined between the retractable sleeve and the piercing member.

  • Publication number: 20140276649
    Abstract: A connection system for connecting a first medical device component to a second medical device component is disclosed. The connection system of the present disclosure provides for quick and intuitive coupling and decoupling of two opposing medical device components through the use of a connection path and a disconnection path, the connection path being distinct from the disconnection path. Furthermore, the connection system of the present disclosure provides audible and tactile connection feedback through the use of elastically deformable connection elements.

  • Publication number: 20140261877
    Abstract: A system for the closed transfer of fluids that provides substantially leak-proof sealing and pressure equalization during engagement of a cannula with a vial, during transfer of a substance from a vial chamber to a barrel chamber via the cannula, and during disengagement of the cannula from the vial is disclosed. The leak-proof sealing of the system substantially prevents leakage of both air and liquid during use of the system. The system of the present disclosure also permits pressure equalization between a vial and the system when the system is attached to the vial. The system is compatible with a needle and syringe assembly for accessing a medication contained within a vial for administering the medication to a patient.

  • Publication number: 20140074038
    Abstract: A drug transfer assembly including a connector connectable to a portion of an intravenous line adapted for connection to a patient's bloodstream and an adapter cap removably connectable with the connector is disclosed. The connector is formed of a rigid material and the adapter cap is formed of a pliable material. With the adapter cap connected to the connector, the adapter cap protectively surrounds and shields the connector. The adapter cap provides a cushioning surface which prevents rubbing of the connector against the skin of a patient. In this manner, the adapter cap prevents the connector of a drug transfer assembly from causing irritation and/or infection to the skin of a patient. Furthermore, the adapter cap provides a protective shield which prevents the connector of a drug transfer assembly from becoming contaminated with undesirables.

  • Publication number: 20130310760
    Abstract: A stopper adapted for attachment with a plunger rod for use within a syringe barrel includes: a main body portion defining an open rearward end configured to receive the plunger rod and a closed front end; and a stopper scale line formed along an outer edge of the main body portion. The stopper scale line is formed to provide a visual enhancement of a portion of the stopper that aligns with volume measuring demarcations provided along the syringe barrel, and the stopper scale line contrasts with the main body portion of the stopper.
