  • Patent number: 10953163
    Abstract: In a medicament dispensing device (1), when a medicament preparation-containing syringe (11) is replaced, a microprocessor (23) detects the time at which the replacement is performed as the time of the start of use of the preparation, and counts the elapsed time after the use of the preparation has started. Then, the microprocessor (23) notifies the result of the counting by a LCD (10), etc. to the user. Also, the microprocessor (23) detects that a syringe needle for dispensing the preparation has been mounted, and after detecting the mounting of the syringe needle, the microprocessor (23) counts the elapsed time after the start of use of the preparation. When an effective use period has expired, the microprocessor (23) issues a message in a step S17 that the effective period of a medicament has expired.

  • Patent number: 10596331
    Abstract: A pharmaceutical injecting device comprises a main body case, a piston, a drive mechanism, a display component, and a controller. The body case has a cartridge holder in which a pharmaceutical syringe is installed. The piston is provided movably with respect to the pharmaceutical syringe that is installed in the cartridge holder. The drive mechanism drives the piston. The controller is electrically connected to the drive mechanism. The display component is connected to the controller. The controller has a display controller. The display controller causes the display component to display a plurality of injection sites and to display at two or more injection sites selectable displays indicating that those injection sites are suitable for injection.

  • Patent number: 9155835
    Abstract: A medicament dispensing device capable of managing the effective use period of a medicament preparation-containing syringe by simply and accurately detecting a period of time after the start of use of the preparation. In a medicament dispensing device (1), when a medicament preparation-containing syringe (11) is replaced, a microprocessor (23) detects the time at which the replacement is performed as the time of the start of use of the preparation, and counts the elapsed time after the use of the preparation has started. Then, the microprocessor (23) notifies the result of the counting by a LCD (10), etc. to the user. Also, the microprocessor (23) detects that a syringe needle for dispensing the preparation has been mounted, and after detecting the mounting of the syringe needle, the microprocessor (23) counts the elapsed time after the start of use of the preparation. In a step S12, the microprocessor (23) checks whether or not the elapsed time counted by a timer (21) has exceeded a specified time.

  • Patent number: 8771233
    Abstract: A medication administering device for automatically identifying a medication syringe and administering a correct medication. A microprocessor (20) of the medication administering device (1) identifies the color of a medication or a medication syringe on the basis of a reference value, determines the adequateness of the medication, and indicates the result of the determination by means of an LCD (10) or the like to the user. In step S4, the microprocessor (20) determines whether or not color data received from a color detecting unit (13) is within a reference value range. If the color data is within the reference value range, the microprocessor proceeds to step S5, otherwise proceeds to step S6. In step S6, the microprocessor (20) issues a message to the effect that the user needs to check the medication.
