GEORGE C. HOHEIN, 0F STAUNTON, VILRjGrINIA` SYRINGE.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Oct. 9, 1917.
Application filed March 10, 1916. Serial No. 83.408.
To all whom it may Concern:
Be it known that I, GEORGE C. HOHEIN, a` citizen of the United States, residing at Staunton, in thc county of 'Augusta and State of Virginia, have invented new and useful lmprovcments in Syringes, of which the following is a specification.
The invention relates to syringes, and more particularly to the class of sanitary hot water and air drying syringes.
The primary object of the invention is the provision of a syringe of this character, wherein the construction thereof is novel in form to develop a thoroughly sanitary condition and healthful state of the membrane in the female organ.
Another object of the invention is the provision of a Syrin e of this character, wherein the parts thereo are readily and easily separated, so as to permit the easy cleaning thereof, or the stcrilizing of the same.
A further object of the invention is the provision of a syringe of this character, wherein any pus or matter can be readily drawn from the membrane of'the female organ, and thereafter the said membrane thon oughly dried, thereby leaving the same and the pores in a sanitary, firm and healthy condltion.
A still further object of the invention is the provision of a syringe of this character, which is simple in construction, thoroughly reliable and efficient in operation, strong, du able and inex ensivc in manufacture.
ith these an other objects in View, the invention consists in the features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing, and pointed out in the claims; hereunto appended.
' In the accompanyin drawing:
Figure 1, is a side c ovation of a syringe constructed in accordance with the Invention.
Fig. 2, is a vertical longitudinal sectional view thereof.
Fig. 3, is a perspective view of the suction nozzle. detached.
Fig. 4, is a perspective view of the inner perforated nozzle.
Fig. 5, is a sectional view on the line 5-5 of Fig. 1.
Similar reference characters indicate corresponding parts throughout the several views in the drawing.
llclcrring to the drauin;l in uctall, the syringe comprises a handle member l0, prefcrnlily tapered from one clul to the other, and is formed with a central longitudinal horc 1l. which communicates with a socket l2. in the small rml oll thc mclnhcr, while in this bore l1, is a tube lil, formed at one cud with a perforated spray head 14, adn itcd to fit within the socket 12, in the smaller end of thc handle, the opposite cud of thc tube 13, being screw threaded at l5, for thc dctuchalllc cngngcnn'nt ol' the same in a nipple lhyol' n comprcssilile hulh l?, haring a removable cap or plug 15, normally cl0sing a lilling opening therein, so that thc. hulb can he filled with liquid.
The smnller end of the handle member 10, is formed with inner and enter screw threads 19 and 20, reslwctively, externally thereof, and dctachably engaged with these outer threads is :1n inner nozzle 21, while detnchnhly engaged with the inner threads is au outer nozzle 22, the latter being formed with a plurality of internal tcats 223, providing cells or pockets 2l, openinlg through tlm outer surface of the said nozz e to servo as vacuum cups therein.
'lhc mucr nozzle 2l, is formed with a plurality of pcrforations 25, for the circulation of water within the outer nozzle 22 for the expanding and contracting thereof so that corresponding action will be imparted to the cells or pockets 24, for creat .ing a suction upon the membrane of a female or ran, to extract pus and matter therefrom, wilien the instrument is in use. These cells or pockets 2l extend only through the outer fac-c of the. nozzle Q2 and the inner ends are closed so as not to communicate with the space formed between the inner and outer nozzles. When Water is forced into the spar-e between the inner and outer nozzles .51 and 2:2 the latter nozzle belges, therehy fiattcningthe cells or pockets 24 therein and on the water being drawn out of said space the said cells or pockets contract .oi relax which will exert an alternate pressure and grip on the skin of the wall of the cavity in which the device is inserted and thus draw out pus or other foreign matter from the pores therein, as will he elearl evident. When the nozzle 22 is expanded y the internal pressure and the cells or pockets 24 flattened as stated, air will he forced from the latter so that on subsequent relaxation of the pocket they will set up a suction on the membrane of the cavity with which they are in Contact. y
The nipple 16, is provided with a hand operated cut ofl' valve 26, which controls the flow of liquid from the bulb to the nozzle or lube 13, within the handle. Of course it will be apparent that the outer nozzle 22, can be taken off and the inner nozzle 21, will permit thc use of the instrument as a douche, that is to say either as a liquid sprayer or an air atomizer for the drying of the membrane or pores of the shin, in the use of the Syringe.
From the foregoing it is thought that the ronstruction and manner of use of the syringe will be clearly understood and there fore a more extended explanation has been omitted.
Having thus described my invention, I claim:
1. A syringe comprising e handle having a central longitudinal bore therein, a tubular stem Within the bore in the handle, a compressible bulb detechablyconnected with one end of the stem, u hand-operated valve controlling communication between the bulb and the Stein, a perforated nozzle on the stein and seated Within the handle. an inner nozzle detachably connected with the handle and having perforations, an outer nozzle detachably connected with the handle and having a plurality of teats struck inwardly to forni suction pockets opening through the outer surface thereof.
2. A syringe of the class described com- 'being formed with a plurality prising a handle tapered from one end to the other thereof and having a central bore, a tubular stern fitted Within the bore, a. flared perforated nozzle on said stem and seated with'i the handle, a compressible bulb detachalily connected with the threaded end of the stem and having a filling opening, a removable cap closing seid filling opening, a hand-operated valve controlling communication between the bulb and the stem, inner and .outer nozzles detachably mounted on the handle, the said inner nozzle of perforations, and a plurality of hollow teats formed on the outer nozzle and Vprojected inwardly thereof to provide suction cups opening through the outer surface of the said outer nozzle.
3. In a syringe a handle having a longitudinal bore extending therethrough, a, tubular stem inserted Within said bore, a compressible bulb connected with one end of said stem, a resilient nozzle connected with one end of the handle and having a plurality of inwardly extending teats opening outwardly through the nozzle, said teats flattening when a pressure is set up'within the nozzle and relaxing when the pressure is released, thereby acting as suction pockets.
In testimony whereof I afii'x my signature in presence of two witnesses.
