  • Patent number: 9884149
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide an infusion preparation in which the Maillard reaction between an amino acid and a reducing sugar does not occur during storage and the size of fat particles in the fat emulsion does not increase during storage, and in which various types of vitamins can be incorporated in a stable manner, in spite of the fact that it is a two-chamber infusion preparation. Furthermore, even if only one of the infusions (of the infusion preparation) is administered, the patient is unlikely to develop hyperkalemia, vascular pain, or phlebitis. The present invention provides an infusion preparation containing two chambers separated by a partition that can be communicably opened, wherein a first chamber contains a first-chamber infusion containing a sugar and a fat emulsion, a second chamber contains a second-chamber infusion containing an amino acid and an electrolyte, the first-chamber infusion is substantially free of potassium, and has a relative osmotic pressure of 2.0 to 3.

  • Publication number: 20100329242
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a server apparatus includes a memory, a determination module and a controller. The memory stores a management table associating terminal IDs specifying the terminals with media processing abilities owned by the terminals. The determination module refers the management table and determines whether information showing a media processing ability corresponding to the first terminal and information showing a media processing ability corresponding to the second terminal coincide with each other based on the reference result. The controller executes first processing for making speech connection between the first terminal and the second terminal by a peer-to-peer when the media processing abilities coincide with each other, and executes second processing for leading in a speech path between the first terminal and the second terminal to convert into the same media processing ability when the media processing abilities non-coincide with each other.

  • Patent number: 7815198
    Abstract: A gasket is to be disposed in a compressed state between a groove bottom surface defining a gasket groove formed in a first member and a seat surface of a second member so as to make a hermetical sealing between the groove bottom surface and the seal surface. The gasket includes a first seal section formed at an end part of the gasket in a compression direction. The first seal section is ridge-shaped so as to become slender in a direction toward a tip portion of the first seal section. The first seal section has first and second side surfaces which are opposite to each other with respect to a first plane passing through the tip portion of the first seal section. The first side surface overhangs outwardly larger than the second side surface.
