Application: Smart medication delivery devices for providing users with delivery infomatics and methods of using same (Patent ID: US20230372611A1)

The patent filed by Becton Dickinson and Co. describes a medication delivery device (MDD) that is paired with an external device to ensure accurate medicine delivery to patients. The MDD captures data from a flow sensor and transfers it to the external device via wireless or wireline connection. The MDD can have Bluetooth™ and/or near field communication (NFC) communication circuits for connectivity, and an LED indicator to show different states such as powered on, paired, delivery in progress, and delivery completion. The external device can use the captured data to determine flow infomatics like flow rate, total dose delivered, and dose completion status.

The MDD includes a sensor to sense medication flow, a processing device to receive sensor data, and an indicator to signal when the MDD can be removed from the delivery site. The processing device can analyze the flow rate, detect clogs, and store data with time stamps. The MDD can be various devices like an injection pen, pump, or wearable patch pump, with the sensor being a flow, thermal, pressure, or MEMS sensor. Additionally, the MDD can transmit data to the external device in real-time for monitoring and ensuring accurate dosing, with the external device generating alarms if the delivered dose differs from the prescribed dose based on the flow data.
