Nov. 25, 1930. M. s. NEWMAN DEVICE FOR TREATING THE STOHACH WITH ULTRA-VIOLET RAYS Filed Oct. 10, 1929 ATTORNEY Patented Nov. 25, 1930 moams's. NEWMAN, or NEWARK, NEW JERSEY DEVICE FOR TREATING THE STOMACH WITH ULTRA- Application filed October 10, 1929. Serial No. 398,609.

This invention relates to for treating the stomach rays.

In the treatment of certain stomach disorders, the use of ultra-violet rays has been found efl'ective, but the application of the rays has been inconvenient and diflicult due to the lack of proper apparatus.

It is an object of this invention to provide an apparatus by means of which ultra-violet rays may be effectively applied for thetreatment of internal disorders. v. A further object is the provision of a device for applying ultra-violet rays to the stomach, 16 the device being provided with means for a device adapted with ultra-violet maintaining the stomach in an inflated condition so that the full effect ofthe rays will be obtained. j These and other objects are attained by 20 the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts hereinafter described and shown in the accompanying drawing, con stituting a material and in which: 26 Figure 1 represents an elevational view showing'an. application of the device. Figure 2 represents asectional view showing details of the device.

Referring to the drawings, the, device is 30 shown to include a hood 3 which may be clamped to an ultra-violet ray lamp, (not shown), by means of the set screw 4.

Rays from the source of ultra-violet rays areprojected on to the quartz lens 5, positioned in the hood 3, and aredirected to a plurality of spaced quartz cylinders 9, each quartz cylinder being connected to the next adjacent'cylinder by a short flexible rubber tube 7, which is provided with internal 40 flanges at its ends adapted to interlock with grooves in the ends of the cylinders. The lowermost quartz element 8 has a rounded tip so as to prevent injury to the oesophagus or stomach. Each of the quartz cylinders is provided with a longitudinal central passage 9, the passage in the ufppermost cylinder entering into a chamber ormed by the metal tubing 7 10, integral with and projecting from the lower side of the hood 3. A short tube 11 part of this disclosure projects from the tubing by a rubber tube 12 to a bulb 13, the

being provided with an the mouth of a as substantially shown i VIOLET RAYS 10, and is connected latter passed through person down into the stomach 11 Figure 1. Ultraviolet rays applied to the-lens 5 will then be conducted by means of the quartz cylinders 6't0 the stomach.

Inasmuch as it is necessary that the stomach be empty when treatments are made with ultra-violet rays, it

will be seen that an empty stomach will be in a deflated condition and prevent effective application of the rays.

Consequently, violet rays, the ing air through the bulb 13. The bulb stomach prior to applying the ultrais inflated by forcthe passages 9 by means of 13 is depressed to force the air into the stomach, and then the tube 12 is pinched the air from the stomach.

In the 'meantime, low air to enter to inflate 12 is then freed and bulb.

more air the valve 14 opens to althe bulb. The tube may be forced into the stomach by again depressing the My invention utilizes the peculiar proplittle loss through and from the above de readily seen that I and easily manipulated erty of quartz of conducting light rays with a non-rectilinear path;

scription it will be have presented a simple device for treating the stomach with ultra-violet rays.

The foregoing disclosure is to be regarded as descriptive and illustrative only, and not as restrictive or limitative of the invention,

to prevent the escape of of which, obviously, an embodiment may be constructed including in departing from the general scope herein inodifications without dicated and denoted in the appended claims.

Having thus described claim as new ters Patent, is:

my invention, what and desire to secure by Let- 1. A device for treating the stomach with ultra-violet rays comprising a plurality of spaced quartz cylinders,

flexible rubber tublng connecting said cylinders, a hood connected to the uppermost attaching the hood to a s cylinder, means for ource of ultra-violet rays, and a lens in said hood to direct ultraviolet rays to the cylinders.

2. A device for treating the stomach with ultra-violet rays, comprising a plurality of spaced quartz cylinders having longitudinal passages, means for connecting said cylinders, means for directing ultra-vlolet rays from a source to the cylinders, and means for forcing air through the passages in the cylinders so that the stomach may be inflated.

3. A device for treating the stomach With ultra-violet rays, comprising a plurality of spaced quartz members having longitudinal passages, flexible means for connecting said members, and means for forcing air through the passages in the cylinders to inflate the stomach.
