A Powder Dosing Valve DOSIMAT is a mechanical release mechanism that prevents and controls an oral drug’s accidental release. It is a rubber device that can hold tablets, capsules, or liquids. It is used to avoid ingesting contaminated tablet contents that might cause harmful effects like nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. The device also stops the pressurization of the bottle that releases the medicine into the stomach. Allowing the medicine to be absorbed by the body gradually rather than quickly allows it to have the required time for proper absorption.
DOSIMAT can be used in different oral medications, including Tylenol, Motrin, Aspirin, Naproxen, Acetaminophen, and NSAIDs. It is used in conjunction with a syringe pump that contains a liquid disc that releases a precise dose of the oral medication through the valve. The entire process is automated and can deliver doses of the drug through the valve per minute. Also, many medical professionals are now using the device to administer chemotherapy sessions. It reduces the number and size of pills to be given during the treatment session.
