Abstract

Recently, a number of medical incidents and accidents have been reported over the world. Since many are related to medicine, the importance of "Safety in the use of medicine" has attracted a lot of attention. This paper describes experiments conducted to improve the opening of the sealed partition of infusion bags and to indicate an understandable bag design that shows how to use.
