To all "whom it may concern:
Be it known that I Josir a citizen of Cuba, and a resident 'of Regia Habana, Cuba, have invented a new and Im# ioved Chloroformer, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.
My invention relates to a devicefor the administration of an anesthetic, and the object thereof i's to provide a simple, light, eiiicient and` inex ensive device Whichis sanitary, as it can e easily taken apart and sterilized, which can be easily and quickly attached and reinovedfrom the patient, in
which the amount of anesthetic administered can be easilfy regulated, and 1n which the anesthetic be the atient isy spread lover a lai-ge, areal to facilitate the evaporation ofthe same.
-I obtain the above object by providing a nose piece having an extension Whereinto a.
removable container for absorbent material is fitted, and with which extension is associated a receptacle for an anesthetic with means for controllifg the feed from the same to the said container, said container- Aresponding parts iiiall the views and i which:
Fi re 1 is a perspective View showing an ein iment of my invention in use; F10'. 2 is a longitudinal section of 'the same; Fig. 43 is a section on line 3-3, Fig. 2; Libis a section' on line 4 4, Fig. 2; and Fig. 5'is a perspective view of the container -for the absorbent material.
Referring to the drawings, 7 represents the nosepiece, which is providedwith lan extension 8,.,preferably of prismatic cross section, the extension forming properly a conv tinuation ofzthe nose piece, said extension 8 being open'at its lower and uplper ends; andadiacent'the upper openiiig`t e said extension is provided with undercut grooves 9 liiito 'which is fittedl a pair ofcontactin slides l0 closing the-upper.opening.

of theslides 10. is" rovided ivi-th a central 'slotll extending roin the end Ato about the middle, of they-gelida, as best shown in sli e are in alinemenn andw en the "slidessaid slides and together oi'man Lopening two slides 1Q with its stem 12 v'is-.a rec "L tacle 13, which is supported on the sl'bs' ceptacle is adapted to .receive the chloroform, or any similar anesthetic, throu li' the plugged opening la same through the ste .1.2 by means cfa valve 15 controlling the discharge from the same. The receptacle 13 is preferably made of glass, so as to facilitate the control v'of the amount of anesthetic to be discharged.
Fitting snugly into the extension 8, through the lower opening, is a container 16 open at its upper end and at thev -side facing .the nose piece thevvall ofthe container 1s formed of a fine mesh fabric 17. The absorbent material 18 is placed in the 'container from the upper end before the same is fitted into the"extension wherein the. upper end of the container cornes-in engagement with the shoulder at the upper end ofthe o ening of the extension. The position of t e container 16 within the extension 8 is substantially-central with the receptacle 13, and when the valve 15 is open to allow the anesthetic to flow on toI the absorbent material 18 in the container 16 the same is ra idly spread over a large area of the absor ent material and thereby end of'the extension 8 or from the lolvver end o f the container, the same can. 'only escape through the fabric 17 ofthe 'ontainer, whic leads to the nose ieee. Therefore when the said device is p aced on the' patient,4 as shown inFigs. 1 and 2, the gauze or fabric 17 faces the nostrils of the patient. and 'asl lie breathes'he necessarily inhales the -vapors coming through the said fabric. i
The device is maintained inv proper posia vidingelastic laces 19 secured to the no Fi 3. Tlieslots'll of the upper and lower 4 are in normal position, covering the 'upper Opening in the extension 8, as shoivnin- Fig. 3, the said slots are at opposite'sidesofv substantially in the center of the extension- \8. Engaging the opening 'formed by hy the .engagement ofthe flan e'- ortiens vof the stem with tYiesidS.

In a ehloroforlner, a nose piece having an extension forming a continuation -of at the top and bottom thereof; slides adapted to close the iop opening of the extension; a receptacle for anesthetic engaged by said slides and whereby the saine is secured to said extension; a container for absorbent material iitting into said extension through the lower opening, said receptacle having a valve-controlled discharge into said container, said container having a tine mesh Wall forming an outlet from said container into said nose piece, said nose piece having` means whereby the same can be properly secured and maintained on the patient.
2. In a ehlorotoriner, a nose piece having ing at the -top thereof and under-cutgrooves adjacent 'the opening;V Atwo superposing'A slides fitting -into said groove, each-of said slides having a longitudinal slot extending substantially to the middle ofthe same, said "slides knormally 'closing the upper. opening of said'eatension;` a receptacle for an .anesthetic, having a stemengagedby the slots of said slides and-whereby said receptacle is secured to said extension; a container for absorbent lmate'iaLWt-hin said :extension and relnovabliz associated therewith,
