Title:Devices, systems and methods for medicament delivery
Abstract: An apparatus includes a container defining an internal region configured to contain multiple medicament delivery devices, such as, for example, pen injectors, auto-injectors, inhalers or the like. The container includes an electronic circuit system configured to output a first electronic output associated with a first medicament delivery device contained within the internal region when the first medicament delivery device is removed from the internal region of the container. The electronic circuit system is further configured to output a second electronic output associated with a second medicament delivery device contained within the internal region when the second medicament delivery device is removed from the internal region of the container. The second electronic output is different than the first electronic output. At least one of the first electronic output or the second electronic output is associated with a use instruction.

Assignee: Intelliject, Inc. (Richmond, VA)
Filing Date:Feb 05, 2007
Application Number:11/671,025
Claims:1. An apparatus, comprising: a container defining an internal region configured to contain at least a portion of a medicament delivery device; a retainer configured to be movably coupled to the container, the retainer configured to retain the portion of the medicament delivery device within the internal region; and an electronic circuit system including a switch disposed on a printed circuit board, the electronic circuit system configured to output a first electronic output when the switch is moved from a first state to a second state, the electronic circuit system configured to output a second electronic output when the medicament delivery device is removed from the internal region; a portion of the retainer configured to tear a portion of the printed circuit board to irreversibly move the switch from the first state to the second state when the retainer is moved relative to the container.

2. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein: the first electronic output includes at least one of a visual output, an audible output, a haptic output, a wireless communications signal or a wired communications signal; and the second electronic output includes at least one of a visual output, an audible output, a haptic output, a wireless communications signal or a wired communications signal.

3. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein at least one of the first electronic output or the second electronic output includes recorded speech.

4. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein the first electronic output is associated with any one of an identification of the medicament delivery device, an identification of a physical condition, or an instruction for using the medicament delivery device.

5. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein the second electronic output is associated with at least one of an identification of the medicament delivery device, an identification of a physical condition or an instruction for using the medicament delivery device.

6. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein the medicament delivery device is at least one of a pen injector, an auto-injector or an inhaler.

7. The apparatus of claim 1, further comprising: a label configured to be coupled to the medicament delivery device, the label containing an information associated with the medicament delivery device, the information being arranged in a machine-readable format, the electronic circuit system configured to receive the information, at least one of the first electronic output or the second electronic output including at least a portion of the information.

8. The apparatus of claim 7, wherein the label includes at least one of a magnetic strip containing the information, a bar code portion containing the information or an radio frequency identification tag containing the information.

9. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein at least one of the first electronic output or the second electronic output includes a communications signal configured to notify an emergency response system.

10. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein the second electronic output is unique to the medicament delivery device.
