Abstract
(EN)
There is provided a medicament dispenser for use with a medicament carrier having multiple distinct medicament doses carried thereby and an internal mechanism for dispensing the distinct medicament doses carried by said medicament carrier. The mechanism comprises receiving means for receiving the medicament carrier; release means for releasing a distinct medicament dose from the medicament carrier on receipt thereof by said receiving means; an outlet (620), positioned to be in communication with the medicament dose releasable by said release means; indexing means for individually indexing the distinct medicament doses of the medicament carrier; and counting means (649) for counting each time a distinct medicament dose of the medicament carrier is indexed by said indexing means. The counting means is a distinct electronic counter unit that is reversibly receivable by the medicament dispenser.

Cette invention a trait à un distributeur de médicaments, utilisable avec un porte-médicaments garni de plusieurs doses médicamenteuses séparées, équipé d'un mécanisme interne permettant de distribuer les doses médicamenteuses séparées que contient le porte-médicaments. Ce mécanisme est pourvu d'un contenant logeant le porte-médicaments, d'un système de libération libérant une dose médicamenteuse séparée contenue dans le porte-médicaments à réception de celui-ci par le contenant susmentionné, d'un orifice de sortie en communication avec la dose médicamenteuse séparée pouvant être libérée par le système de libération, d'un dispositif d'indexage indexant individuellement les doses médicamenteuses séparées contenues dans le porte-médicaments et d'un compteur fonctionnant chaque fois qu'une dose médicamenteuse séparée est indexée par le dispositif d'indexage. Ce compteur consiste en une unité électronique distincte de comptage que le distributeur de médicaments peut recevoir de manière réversible.
