This invention relates to surgical appliances and has special reference to a holder for a hypo- .dermic syringe and a vial holding the medicament-to be drawn into said syringe.

.One important object of the invention is to provide a device of this character in which the .syringe and vial will beheld removably in such 3 position that the needle of the syringe may be inserted through a closure of the vial axially thereof and without danger of breaking the needle.

A second important object of the invention is to provide a device of this character wherein a hypodermic syringe may have longitudinal movement in guides on an arm but, when in position for withdrawal from said guides, the arm is so arranged that the needle cannot be pressed thereon by any tilting movement as in withdrawal.

A third important object of the invention is to provide supporting means whereon a vial support and a hypodermic support are so mounted thatthey may be tilted in order that, when the contents of the vial become partially exhausted the liquid therein may be still positioned around the point of the needle.

A fourth important object of the invention is to provide a device of this character wherein the support for the hypodermic may be tilted in relation to the vial.

A fifth important object of the invention is to provide a vial holder in such a device and a base therefor on which the vial holder may be angularly adjusted and held in the desired adjusted position.

A sixth important object of the invention is to provide a device of this character with an adapter for holding a vial of smaller size than that for which the regular vial holder is provided.

A seventh important object of the invention is to provide a form of the device wherein the vial 'holder and syringe holder are permanently aligned but which is equipped with means for -manually grasping the device so that by movement of the hand it may be shifted into various angular positions in accordance with the quan-.

tity of material in the vial.

An eighth important object of the invention is to provide a device of this kind having a bottle holder so arranged, by improved means, that the holder may be swung to permit ready introduction and removal of the bottle.

With the above and other objects in View as will be hereinafter apparent, the invention consists in general of certain novel details of construcaway at one side of its upper end so that there is (Cl. 128-215) tion and combinations of parts hereinafter Tu11y----.

Fig. 14 is a side elevation partly in axial section of a further form of the invention. 4

Fig. 15 is a section on the line I 5-I5 of Fig. 14.

In the form of the invention shown in Fig. 1 there is provided a relatively heavy base l8 and upwardly fromv this base extends a standard I I cut provided a bearing member l2 at the other side of the upper end. Through this bearing member extends a screw l3 and on this screw is rotatably mounted a disc l4 carrying an arm l5. In the periphery of this disc is provided a series of spaced notches which are engageable by a stop plunger ll seated in a tubular portion l8 of the stem H and urged upwardly into engagement with the disc 14 by a spring IS. A pin 2!] extends from the plunger I? through a guide slot 2| shoulder of the vial and establishes its relation to the vial holder 23, the vial being pushed up throughthe open bottom of the holder. The arm 15 is provided at its free end on one side with a pair of fixed stops 2E and on its other side with a spring member 21 adapted to hold the barrel 28 of a hypodermic syringe in alignment with the axis of a vial holder, the arm l5 being properly bent for this purpose. The screw l3 has. on one end a head 29 and on its othependtanutfiil'and beneath thehead'andifut are spring discs 31 so tha't prcper spring pressure is kept betweenthe parts- The hub member 22 is provided with aboss 32 which engages in a semi-circular slot 33 formed in the disc or hub. M. The relative movement of the vial member and the arm is thus limited by the engagement of the boss 32 with the ends of the slot 33. It will be observed from Fig. 2 that the member i5 is provided, adjacent the vial holder, with a longitudinal slot 34. On the standard l l is fixed a shelf 35 and when the parts are in the full line position shown in Fig. l the bottom of the vial rests on this shaft. As also seen from Fig.1 the vial holder and the syringe holder are normally in vertical position. This is when the vial is filled with the medicinal substance. The syringe can then be slid into position and the needle pushed down into the substance whereupon the plunger of the syringe may be drawn up and the required amount of medicament drawn into the syringe. The syringe may then be raised in its guides until the point freefrom the closure of the vial whereupon the arm [5 may, by movement of the pin 26 downwardly by the thumb nail, or the like, be freed from .the vial holder and brought into the dotted line position shown at A or in any other convenient dotted line position. When in this position the needlepoint will lie opposite the slot 34 and thereby the syringe may be tilted and swung out ers composed of the members 26 and 21 and thus freed for use on the patient without the needle contacting in any way with the hands or anything extraneous to the medicament and vial closure. When the contents of the vial lessen so that they cannot be reached by the needle the vial holder and arm l5 are both tilted into some such position as shown in the dotted line B or-evenentirely up-side-down alongside of the standard Of course, in the latter position the last of the contents of the vial can be drawn into the hypodermic.

In the forms shown in Figs. 6 and '7 there is provided a slotted vial holder 36 which is secured by screws 31 within a base 38. Extending up from this vial holder is a fixed arm 39 having a thumb ring Ml at one end and a finger grip 4! at its other end. This arm carries at its free end a pair of fixed posts 4! and Which may be grasped the hypodermic syringe 43. This form of the invention also has a slot 44 in the arm 39 for the same purpose as the slot 34. Obviously this arrangement cannot be tilted on the base but by the insertion of the operators thumbqthrough the ring 40 and grasping. the finger piece 4| may be tilted to any position for extracting the contents of the vial of the holda spring member 42 between In the device shown in Fig. 9 there is simply provided an adapter which may used for holding smaller bottles than thoseordinarily supposed to be held in the vial holders of the two forms above described. In this case the adapter has a cylindrical upper end 46 of suitable size to fit within the vial holder of either form and this adapter is provided with a pin or lug 41 for guiding into the slot 48 of the vial holder 36 or the slot 23' of the vial holder 23.: However, the lower end of this adapter 46 is provided with a series of inwardly sprung spring fingers. 48' which grasp the smaller size vial and hold it centrally of the adapter. Thus a small vial can be inserted'in this adapter and the adaptemand vial together insgtedNin-eit-lYe i o'fThevial holders 23 or 36 and the will be held centrally for the insertion of the hypodermic needle.

Notches 23a in the first form and 36' in the second form are provided to grip the pin 41, the pin and slots being, of course. properly sized.

In theform of the invention shown in Figs. 10 to 13 there is provided a base 49 on which is secured, by any suitable means such as brazing or the like, the foot 53 of a standard 5| having an inwardly offset portion 52. On the upper end of this standard is carried a pair of pins 53 and a spring clamp 54 corresponding to the members 4 and 42 of the second form of the invention.

At 551s a split bottle holder having its proximal edges provided with opposed notches 56 as in the other forms so that the pin 4'1 of the adapter may be seated therein. Soldered or otherwise secured to this bottle holder is a saddle 51 which is provided with a boss 53 standard 51 and pivotally secured thereto by a screw 59. This boss is here shown as located at the upper end of the saddle and from the lower end of the saddle projects a spring pin 60 which extends through a slot Bl in thestandard 5!, the slot being arcuate and extending around the pin or screw 59. At the lower end of this slot (ii there is provided a notch 62 into which this spring pin 68 springs upon the bottle holder being arranged in vertical position. Thus t e bottle holder is latched in such vertical position but may be released by springing the pin out of the notch and turning the holder on its. pivot. Obviously other such notches may be provided to hold the bottle holder in other desired positions. A thumb ring 63 and finger post 64 are also provided in this form of the invention for convenience in handling.

In this form of the invention the base may be of heavy and solid form since, by raising the tral opening 56 at one side of which is a notch In this notch is seated the lower end.

5|. of a standard 52 which is secured to the base by screws 53 extending radially through the base 49. This standard 52 has its upper end oifset toward the vertical center line of the base. At

its top this standard is provided at one sideedge with a pair of integral fingers 54 corresponding to the fingers M of Fig. 6 and with a gripping spring. 55 corresponding to the spring 42 of that figure.
