  • Publication number: 20150374919
    Abstract: An injector may include a container having a wall with an interior surface defining a closed sterile reservoir filled with a drug product. The injector may also include a fluid delivery system comprising a sterile container needle that is in fluid communication with the container in a delivery state, but may or may not be in fluid communication with the container in a storage state. Further, the injector may include an actuator that is adapted to move the container needle from the storage state to the delivery state.

  • Patent number: 8932253
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for infusing medication into a patient's body using a medication chamber referenced to ambient pressure. The apparatus includes a medication chamber enclosed by a peripheral wall which includes a movable portion configured to transfer exterior ambient pressure into the chamber. Means are provided for exerting a negative bias force acting on the movable portion in a direction opposed to the ambient pressure force. Thus, the resultant pressure in the chamber will be negative with respect to ambient pressure, reducing the risk that the chamber can be overpressurized and produce an unintended medication discharge.

  • Patent number: 8915879
    Abstract: Ambulatory infusion pumps, pump assemblies, cartridges, baseplates, cannulas, insertion tools, and related components as well as combinations thereof and related methods. One method of dispensing medicament from a cartridge includes pushing a plunger so as to controllably dispense out of a medicament reservoir within the cartridge in accordance with a stored delivery profile an amount of medicament of 0.1% or less of the total filled volume of the reservoir and with a single-dose precision of better than plus or minus 20%. The single-dose precision is obtained after a time-to-precision period of less than eight hours, which begins at the onset of the first plunger pushing for the cartridge, during which the plunger is being pushed in accordance with the stored delivery profile.

  • Patent number: 8603050
    Abstract: Implantable infusion devices and systems with side port access detection capability and methods of detecting side port access. The methods may include the steps of sensing pressure in a fluid passage between an implanted pump mechanism and an implanted outlet port and determining that an implanted side port has been accessed by a hypodermic needle based on a predetermined change in pressure in the fluid passage between the implanted pump mechanism and the implanted outlet port.

  • Patent number: 8352042
    Abstract: A method of preventing inadvertent signal transmission sent from a remote control for controlling the operation of an implantable infusion device. The method includes maintaining the remote control in a locked state prior to a user intentionally unlocking the remote control in order to generate transmission of a signal from the remote control to the implantable infusion device. The unlocking of the remote control can include moving a button control element, unlocking a button lock, pressing a button other than the signal generation button, pressing the signal generation button in a specific sequence or shaking the remote control.
