, citizen of the United States, residjngat Everett, in the, county of Middlesex, and

State ofiMassaehusetts, have invented new and useful Improvements in Pressure Syr inges and Subcutaneous Needles, of which the following isva specification. 1

Thisrinvention relates toa prussure syringe and (subcutaneous, needle.

The. object of the inventlon is to, provide a a pressure syringe and sulbcutaneous needle cocmhlned and COIIIPI'lSlIlg a serum onflurd container which will not leak, whiehJwill be ahsolutelyxsealed and which can be rendered sterile andu freeafrom contamina{ tion,.,but which will be readily adaptalole for use by the application of direct pressure upon the pistonlof theisyringe witholl' any danger or possibility of the V fingerslor of any extraneous or contaminating material coming in contactwith the sealing medium or the contents of the container. j

The object of the'invention is further to provide a device i-of the ehara'cter set forth,

which "is entirely free from anyipossibility of corrosion or climatic orlchemicalchanges. The mventlon. ,CQIlSlSts 1n. an-1mproved container constitutingasyringe andin the particular manner in which the neck of the container is sealed by means of 11a stopper which, while heing per fectly tightso that i no foreign matter can get into the barrel of-the container and contaminate the, serum or fluid containedtherein, still can he: imme diatelyyejected by hydraulic or other pres sure hy means of the piston.

V The 'nvention flll'tllGPCOIlSlSl'zS the conin L struction-of the hub towwhich a hypodermic needle is. fastened and in the,,means for connectingthe hub tothe containers.

i The invention-v finally consists in the com hination and arrangement of parts set forth in the following specification and particularly pointed outin the claims thereof.

Referring to the drawings: 3 Figure 1 is a sectional; s am-sf my improve syringe ands-needle: v
