CLAIMS

The invention is claimed as follows:

1. A reconstitution device comprising:

a piercing member having a first end and a second end, the first end of the piercing member configured to engage an administration port;

a delivery member having a first end and a second end, the first end of the delivery member configured to engage a delivery site;

a collar configured to engage a vial; and

a cap extending from the collar and holding the piercing member and the delivery member such that the second end of the piercing member and the second end of the delivery member are disposed within the collar.

2. The reconstitution device of claim 1, wherein the cap is formed integrally with the collar.

3. The reconstitution device of claim 1, wherein the collar is cylindrical and is configured to concentrically engage the vial.

4. The reconstitution device of claim 1, wherein the collar engages with the vial, such that the piercing member is in fluid communication with the vial and the delivery member is in fluid communication with the vial.

5. The reconstitution device of claim 1, wherein the administration port is an intravenous ("IV") bag port, and wherein the first end of the piercing member is configured to pierce the IV bag port.

6. The reconstitution device of claim 1, wherein the delivery site is an IV line, connectable to a patient, and wherein the first end of the delivery member is configured to connect to the IV line.

7. The reconstitution device of claim 1, wherein, when placed in an operating position, each of the piercing member and the delivery member are oriented vertically.

8. The reconstitution device of claim 1, wherein the first end of the piercing member is formed integrally with the administration port.

9. The reconstitution device of claim 8, wherein the administration port is connected to an IV solution container.

10. The reconstitution device of claim 1, wherein at least one of the first end of the piercing member, the second end of the piercing member, and the second end of the delivery member includes a syringe needle.

11. A reconstitution system comprising:

a drug vial;

a fluid container; and

a reconstitution device, the reconstitution device including:

a piercing member having a first end and a second end, the first end of the piercing member configured to engage the fluid container,

a delivery member having a first end and a second end, the first end of the delivery member configured to engage a delivery site,

a collar, and

a cap extending from the collar and holding the piercing member and the delivery member such that the second end of the piercing member and the second end of the delivery member are disposed within the collar.

12. The reconstitution system of claim 11, wherein the collar engages the vial, such that the piercing member is in fluid communication with the vial and the delivery member is in fluid communication with the vial.

13. The reconstitution system of claim 12, wherein the fluid container holds a fluid, such that the fluid may travel from the fluid container into the first end of the piercing member, through the piercing member, from the second end of the piercing member into the vial, from the vial into the second end of the delivery member, through the delivery member, and from the first end of the delivery member to the delivery site.

14. The reconstitution system of claim 11, wherein the vial contains an active agent.

15. The reconstitution system of claim 14, wherein the active agent is a pharmaceutical agent or a nutritional supplement.

16. The reconstitution system of claim 11, wherein the fluid container is an IV bag and the delivery site is an IV line connectable to a patient.

17. The reconstitution system of claim 16, further including an infusion pump in operable communication with the IV line.

18. The reconstitution system of claim 11, wherein the fluid container is formed integrally with the reconstitution device.

19. A method of using a reconstitution system comprising:

enabling a piercing member and a delivery member to be placed in simultaneous communication with an inside of a vial;

enabling fluid from a container to be introduced, via the piercing member, into the vial to mix with an agent located within the vial to form a mixed drug; and

enabling the mixed drug to be delivered from the vial together with fluid from the container, via the delivery member.

20. The method of Claim 19, wherein enabling the mixed drug to be delivered from the vial, via the delivery member, includes enabling a distal end of the delivery member to be connected to a tube that is connectable to a patient.
