  • Publication number: 20080009824
    Abstract: A delivery device includes a durable housing portion and a separable disposable portion that selectively engage and disengage from each other. The disposable housing portion contains a reservoir and secures to the patient and may be disposed of after it has been in use for a prescribed period. A disposable pump assembly selectively connects to the reservoir. The disposable pump assembly includes a pump rotor, a septum and a needle for conveying infusion media from the reservoir to the patient.

  • Publication number: 20060264894
    Abstract: A delivery device includes a durable housing portion and a separable disposable portion that selectively engage and disengage from each other. The disposable housing portion secures to the patient and may be disposed of after it has been in use for a prescribed period. Components that normally come into contact with a patient or with infusion media are supported by the disposable housing portion for disposal after the prescribed use, while the durable housing portion supports other components such as electronics for controlling delivery of infusion media from the reservoir and a drive device and drive linkage.

  • Publication number: 20060264890
    Abstract: An infusion media delivery device includes a housing having a base adapted to be secured to a user's skin. An infusion media reservoir is supported by the housing. A moveable hollow needle is selectively engageable with the reservoir to communicate infusion media from the reservoir. The needle is supported for movement relative to the housing base between a first position and a second position. The needle is spaced apart from a user's skin when in the first position and the base is secured to the user's skin, and the needle is arranged to pierce the user's skin when in the second position and the base is secured to the user's skin.

  • Publication number: 20060264888
    Abstract: An infusion media delivery device includes a durable housing portion and a separable disposable portion that selectively engage and disengage from each other. The disposable housing portion secures to the patient and may be disposed of after it has been in use for a prescribed period. The disposable housing portion supports an infusion media reservoir and a needle on a moveable platform. The platform is moveable between a first position in which a needle is disengaged with a patient and a second position in which the needle is engaged with the patient.

  • Publication number: 20060253086
    Abstract: A needle structure for communicating media to or from a patient includes a hollow shaft having two ends and a longitudinal dimension between the two ends. A passage is provided along at least a portion of its longitudinal dimension for conveying a flowable media. The shaft has at least one bend along its longitudinal dimension to dampen motion of one end of the needle relative to the other end of the needle.

  • Patent number: 7108505
    Abstract: An optical conduit is bundled with one or more fluid carrying conduits such that the bundled conduits are axially aligned near their distal ends. Light and fluid emitted from orifices at the terminal ends of the conduits are emitted along substantially coaxial paths. A ferrule is preferably used to bundle the conduits together at the distal ends of the conduits, and elsewhere along their combined lengths if desired. The fluid conduit may comprise an outer tube and a smaller coaxial inner tube, one tube for delivering a first fluid and the other tube for delivering a second fluid. The optical conduit comprises optical fibers for delivering light through the end of the bundle. Because the conduits are bundled near the distal ends of the aligned tubes, the light and fluid delivered through the conduits are precisely aimed at the intended point.

  • Publication number: 20060184104
    Abstract: A needle guard for an insertion device generally used with an infusion set. The needle of the insertion device is commonly adapted for puncturing at one end and including at the opposite end a hub. The needle guard includes an opening adapted to receive the insertion device and a locking mechanism adapted to secure the insertion device in the needle guard. By pushing the needle hub into the needle guard for disposal, barbs on the needle hub will mate with undercuts on the inside of the needle guard and secure the needle hub in a position where the needle is covered, preventing unintended contact with the needle.

  • Publication number: 20060173410
    Abstract: An insertion device, generally used with an infusion set, including a needle being adapted for puncturing at one end and including at the opposite end a hub. The hub includes a handle part and a guard part that are capable of securing the needle through the use of locks. Locking structures are used to secure the insertion device in a position where the needle is covered in a locked position, avoiding unintended contact with the needle.
