Title

(FR) ADAPTATEURS DE CAPUCHONS POUR FLACON DE MÉDICAMENT ET PROCÉDÉS ASSOCIÉS
Abstract
(EN)
Cap adapters for a medicament vial configured to facilitate the transfer of liquid medicament from the vial and into a syringe. In one embodiment the cap adapter comprises a wall portion with a first lumen passing through it. A vial-engaging portion secures the cap adapter to the vial. A spike extends from the wall portion and defines a second lumen passing through the wall portion. A cone-shaped shield extends from the first lumen. The shield is configured to guide a hypodermic needle toward the first lumen to thereby reduce a risk of needlestick to a user handling the vial. In certain embodiments, a light source cooperates with the cap adapter to illuminate at least a portion of the cap adapter to reduce a risk of needlestick to a user handling the vial in a darkened environment. In certain embodiments, a secondary sealing member abuts a first face of the wall portion and seals an end of the first lumen. In certain embodiments, a locking sleeve resists or prevents removal of the cap adapter from the medicament vial.

La présente invention concerne des adaptateurs de capuchon pour un flacon de médicament configurés pour faciliter le transfert de médicament liquide du flacon dans une seringue. Dans un mode de réalisation, l'adaptateur de capuchon comprend une partie de paroi avec une première lumière la traversant. Une partie venant en prise avec le flacon fixe l'adaptateur de capuchon sur le flacon. Une projection s'étend à partir de la partie de paroi et définit une seconde lumière traversant la partie de paroi. Une protection en forme de cône s'étend depuis la première lumière. La protection est configurée pour guider une aiguille hypodermique vers la première lumière pour ainsi réduire le risque qu'un utilisateur manipulant le flacon se pique avec une aiguille. Dans certains modes de réalisation, une source de lumière coopère avec l'adaptateur de capuchon pour éclairer au moins une partie de l'adaptateur de capuchon et réduire le risque qu'un utilisateur manipulant le flacon dans un environnement sombre se pique avec une aiguille. Dans certains modes de réalisation, un élément de fermeture secondaire appuie contre une première face de la partie de paroi et ferme une extrémité de la première lumière. Dans certains modes de réalisation, un manchon de fermeture résiste au retrait de l'adaptateur de capuchon du flacon de médicament, ou l'empêche.
