  • Publication number: 20050234370
    Abstract: Disclosed is a breast pump that supports a mother's and infant's breastfeeding needs and facilitates the lifestyle of the mother's choice. The breast milk expression system disclosed allows breastfeeding mothers to obtain milk comfortably, hands-free, conveniently and with discretion. The breast milk expression system disclosed includes at least two contact points which mimic hand-expression as well as infant suckling and effectively stimulate the secretion of oxytocin and prolactin to provide a healthy, safe and efficient breastfeeding session. The system disclosed has a gentle rhythmic massage means and is located a distance from the base of the nipple and massages in all quadrants of the breast. The rhythmic forward pressure is provided by a plurality of opposing pairs of expression bellows that move the milk from the lactiferous sinuses through the nipple pores, bio-mimicking the techniques of hand expression.

  • Patent number: 5993420
    Abstract: A cassette which is adapted to be insertable into and removable from an infusion pump. The cassette has a housing, a length of flexible tubing supported by the housing, and a first vertically movable member disposed in the housing. The first vertically movable member has a slot formed therein, and a portion of the flexible tubing is disposed within the slot. The first vertically movable member is movable between a clamped position in which the flexible tubing is clamped to prevent any substantial liquid flow therethrough and an unclamped position in which substantial liquid flow through the flexible tubing is enabled, and a spring is provided for biasing the first vertically movable member to the clamped position. The first vertically movable member may be designed so that the closure of a door of an infusion pump in which the cassette is inserted will cause the vertically movable member to be in the unclamped position to allow liquid flow through the flexible tubing.

  • Patent number: 5766155
    Abstract: An infusion apparatus for infusing liquid into a patient having a housing, a pump disposed in the housing and adapted to pump liquid through a conduit, a visual display for generating messages to the user of the infusion apparatus, a backlight associated with the visual display, and a light sensor that generates a signal indicative of the ambient light level where the infusion apparatus is being used. The infusion apparatus includes control means coupled to the light sensor and the backlight for causing the backlight to be selectively activated based on the signal generated by the light sensor. The selective illumination of the backlight saves power and is particularly advantageous when used in connection with ambulatory, battery-powered infusion pumps. The control means may cause the backlight to be activated when the ambient light level does not exceed a threshold value, and may cause the backlight to be automatically deactivated after a predetermined period of time.

  • Patent number: 5620312
    Abstract: An infusion apparatus for infusing liquid into a patient and having a housing adapted to receive a cassette with a flexible tube through which liquid may be pumped, a pump disposed within the housing and adapted to pump liquid through the flexible tube of the cassette, and a door, connected to the housing, which has an open position and a closed position. The apparatus includes latching means for maintaining the door in the closed position and first and second release means operatively coupled to the latching means. The first and second release means are independently operable so that the door is released by the latching means only upon actuation of both the first and second release means. As a result, inadvertent opening of the door due to jarring of the infusion apparatus is minimized or prevented.
