EMBALMING APPARATUS Filed March 28, 1942 attorney for example, be inserted upwardly into the ab dominal aorta and/or into the inferior vena cava, itbeing observed that a tube when being inserted into the abdominal aorta would necessarily be of a length approximately 18 inches, so
tions in other deeper vessels of the human body not hereinbefore mentioned.
By referring to Figure 2 of the drawing, the
relative sizeand positioning of the cage-like revolvable member I! may be seen and in addition thereto the relative size and positioning of the secondary tube 20 and the jet l9 forming the delivery orifice thereof as well as the restriction 2 i. It'being obvious in connection therewith that the restriction maybe varied in accordance with the known principles of jet propelling of fluids;
Having thus described my invention, what I as to insure its reaching the aortic arch im w 7 I tion, a secondary tubular member attached to the mediately above and toward one side of the heart and in which area blood clots and otherblood blocking formations are commonly located. It t will be seen that in accordance with this invention, clots or other blood blocking fo'rmation's in any of the deeper blood vessels of the bo'dy'or in the aortic arch'area of the heartcan be readily and speedily removed due ;to the suction action of the. jet pump formed by the jet l9 and the restriction 2| of the drainage tube'and to the mechanicalaction which will tend to break up clots and other blood blocking formations, that of the revolving cage-like memberffl. v Thus it Will be observed that clots and otheri'blood blocking formations heretofore often incapable of be- I -ing removed may be readily and speedily removed with the drainage tube, the subject of this' inven-, ti'on, and the complete embalming of the body,
thereby insured dueto the definite removal of ob'-' jects otherwise blocking the? arteries? and veins and particularly the "abdominal aorta, the aortic arch thereof,' the inferiorv vena cava, and- 'the rightand left common iliac arteries and veins thus enabling these'vessels to'be used for the generally k'nown andpracticed introduction of capilla'ry washing fluids to insure the removalvof blood particularly when it is flattened, in accordance with thisjinventionplt willbe obviou to those skilled .inthe art thatmodificationsiof this invention are possible particularly as to shape and length, for example, tubes of smaller diameter and of longer length and having more than one flexible section might quite obviously beused in penetrating thecommon iliac arteries and veins reaching into the femoral arteries and veins for the removal of clots :or other blood blocking formations. Tubesformed according to the inventionexcept asfor modifications as tosize and shape might also beemployed-in establishing communication channels. for the positive re. moval of clots and other blood blocking forma- L.
