rr'rrmitar.VV ArrLIoAToBQ 'A Application fuminaenum9,1 1aaavr seriarn-jiassa My invention relates to the class of internal applicator, more vparticularly urethral applicators, for the application of 1nedica. tion with accompanying heating, whenl de-V sired, as hereinafter more fully described.
In the drawings, showing 4one preferred embodiment of the invention:
Fig. 1 is a view of one form of the device in side elevation; f v p Fig. 2 is an enlarged longitudinal sec tional view through the front endportion of the applicator;
Fig. 3 is across section on the line III-III of Fig. 2; l A
Figs. 4 and 5 show in detail a modiiied form of cross section and end elevation respectively; and l Figs. 6, 7 and 8 are cross sectional views showing further modied forms of construction.
The applicator as a whole consists of two main members A and B laid side by side, and secured together in any suitable manner to maintain their relationship as a single instrument.
Each is in the form of a tube, made of any suitable material as hard or soft rubber or metal, rounded at the outer closed. ends, and of any length and diameter desired. TubeA is the heating tube and tube B is the medication supply tube having near its terminal a plurality of outwardly distributing ports 2. These openings may be of any size, spacing or arrangement, .and may extend for a portion or the entire length of tube B as desired. v
The inner end portion of tube B is deected more or less away from tube A, as at 3, for convenience in handling and proper clearance of its terminal connection 4 from the socket 5 of member A.
Terminal connection 4 is socketed for tight insertion thereinto of the delivery end or tip of a standard hypodermic syringe 6, of well known construction. When the syringe is filled to any desired extent and inserted in the terminal 4, its contents will be forced into the tube B, forcing a corresponding amount outwardly through the openings 2 in the form of a spray, jets or streams, along any desired length of the tube. It will be understood that the tube B may be kept filled with the medication, always ready for application and delivery upon the forcing action of the syringe, with accurate regulat-ion of the amount discharged.
Member A is provided with an electrical heater 7 ,suitably wound for proper resistance through the conductors which extend outwardly through a standard attaching socket 5, for connection Vwith a sourceof current by terminals 8,
As thu-s constructed, the applicator is kadapted for use and application to any avail yable internal cavity, organ, or tissue.
The particular form-of the tubular members A and Bis of arbitrary selection, and
maybe varied as desired. Thus, instead of two cylindrical members, they may be of the form shown in Figs. 4 and 5, with flat confront-ing faces joined on the line 9, yand tapering" towards a common blunt point.
VOtherwise, the double tube construction mal;r 1
be made integral, asin Figs. 6, 7 and 8, wit the individual cavities 10, 11,separated by an integral partition 12. y
The tipsof the members A and B, whether made separate or integral,
objects in view.
What I claim is:v
1. An applicator of the class vdescribed consist-ing of av double barrelled elongated multi-tubular body tapered .at its outer end providing a common entering terminal and having a middle longitudinal partition forming a closed heater cavity andl a perforated medicat-ion cavity, a heater in the heater cavity, and a syringe connected with the medication cavity.
2. In an applicator, the combination with a double sided elongated hollow body having a tapered terminal and perforations at one side of the body with a middle longitudinal partition lproviding a heater cavit Y at one sideand a medication cavity at t e other should ber rounded, as shown, to facilitate introduction',
side, of a heater within the heater cavity, and
a medication pressure syringe connected with the end portion of the medication cavity.
3. In an applicator, the combination with a, double sided elongated hollow body hav ing a tapered terminal and perforations at one side of the body with a middle longtu dnal partition providing a` heater cavity at one side and a medication cavity at the other side with a divergng tubular Wall form-ing a rear extension of the medication cavity, of y a heater Within the heater cavity having' a current supply connection at the rear end of the heater portion of the body, and a medlo cation pressure Syringe connected With the rear .extension of thegmedoaton cavity portion of the body.
In -eeti'mony whereof I hereunto ax my signature.
