Design of drug packaging to prevent children from misopening

European and American countries attach great importance to the safe drug packaging to prevent children from opening. They noticed this issue in the 1970s. In 1974, legislation forced all oral drugs to adopt safe packaging to prevent children from opening. It has been implemented for 20 years. However, the importance of safe drug packaging in China still needs to be publicized and enlightened

CR series medical bottle caps produced by Rexam company of the United States apply a press rotation mechanism. When a "tick" sound is heard, it indicates that the bottle cap has been sealed

in order to prevent children from poisoning by eating drugs by mistake, the consumer product safety committee of the United States has promoted manufacturers to adopt safety packaging that prevents children from opening, especially the toxic chemicals that drugs and household life will come into contact with. According to the definition of the us poison control packaging act, "safe e-packaging that prevents children from opening" means that children under the age of five are difficult to open by themselves, but ordinary adults can open it correctly without difficulty

when designing safe drug packaging to prevent children from opening, pharmaceutical companies mainly consider it from the perspective of ergonomics; Because the strength of children's hands is much weaker than that of adults, and children are still developing the coordination ability of limb activities, they are unable to perform some more complex actions, such as turning after pressing down or lifting up after pressing down

in the aspect of preventing children from misopening and eating drugs, the design of safe drug packaging also includes a visual warning function. Different color packaging and labels can be used to mark the danger and improve attention. In the Research Report of the composite material center, it is pointed out that black and red images have the most significant effect on marking the danger, while red and green images can improve attention

in 1996, the United States published a research report on safe drug packaging to prevent children from opening. This research report analyzed accidental poisoning deaths of children under five years old in the United States from 1964 to 1992, especially compared the difference in the incidence of accidental poisoning deaths of children between 1964 and 1973 and between 1974 and 1992. Since the implementation of safe drug packaging to prevent children from opening began after 1974

in addition, this retrospective study shows that the proportion of accidental poisoning deaths among children has decreased significantly since 1974. Other statistical analysis has confirmed that the decrease in the incidence of accidental poisoning deaths among children is directly related to the use of safe drug packaging to prevent children from opening. Why do we want to promote safe drug packaging that prevents children from opening? Because it is really effective in saving the lives of children! With it, many children will not die of poisoning due to accidental ingestion of drugs. 7 Maximum change angle: 99999 °
