l HOLDER FOR INTRAVENOUSAPPARATUS Amy J. Daniels, North Wilbraham, Mass. Application February 8, 1947, Serial No. 72.7,425
This invention relates to improvements in holders for intravenous tubing.
The principal object of the invention is the provision of a holder which is arranged and adapted to be attached to a person such as a person's limb or the like for holding the tubing for intravenous injections.
In the use of an intravenous needle which is attached to the end of flexible tubing in giving intravenous medication, blood, plasma, anesthesia, and the like, the tubing which, of course, has some weight, tends to displace the needle and interferes with the proper operation of the apparatus. In fact, the needle which is inserted in the patient practically holds and supports the tubing.
According to this invention, a guard is provided which has a flexible band associated therewith for securing the guard to the arm, leg or the like of the patient. The guard, being attached to the patient and arranged to securely support the tubing carrying the needle, holds the tubing and thereby prevents movement thereof which would dislodge or move the needle.
With the foregoing and various other novel features and advantages and other objects of my invention as will become more apparent as the description proceeds, the invention consists in certain novel features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of parts as will be hereinafter more particularly pointed out in the claim hereunto annexed and more fully described and referred to in connection with the accompanying drawings wherein:
Figs. 1 and 2 are plan and side elevational views respectively of the holder for intravenous apparatus embodying the novel features of the invention; and
Fig. 3 is a view showing the guard of Figs. 1 and 2 attached to the arm of a, person, said arm and the intravenous apparatus being shown in dash lines.
Referring now to the drawings more in detail, the invention will be fully described.
A guard plate 2 is provided which is preferably somewhat convexly shaped, as shown, so as to approximate the contour of the limb of a patient. This plate 2 will preferably be made from relatively thin metal. Stainless steel or the like will be found to be adapted for the practice of the invention.
Slots 4 are provided adjacent opposite ends of the plate 2 and a strap or band 6 extends through the said slots 4 so as to underlie the plate 2 as shown.
The strap 6 may be made from any pliable and'more or less stretchable material such as rubber, rubber composition or the like. A button 8 is provided adjacent one end of the strap 6 and the opposite end of said strap is provided with longitudinally spaced openings which are adapted to receive the button 8. Clips l2 are secured to the plate 2 and are formed in some suitable manner to receive the tube of the intra venous apparatus which carries the needle. Theclips may take any form desired and will be. adapted to receive and releasably hold the tub-- mg.
In the use of the invention, the band 6 is: wrapped around the limb of a patient and se cured by means of the fastening means at opposite ends thereof so as to hold the plate against the limb without slipping. The needle M on the end of the tubing is inserted in the limb and the tube 16 carrying the needle is slipped into one of the clips, all as shown in Fig. 3.
In this way the plate, being held as it is against movement on the limb, holds the tubing against displacement and relieves the needle of any strain or movement which might be caused by the tubing.
The invention may be embodied in other specific forms without departing from the essential characteristics thereof. Hence, the present embodiments are therefore to be considered in all respects merely as being illustrative and not as being restrictive, the scope of the invention being indicated by the appended claims rather than by the foregoing description, and all modifications and variations as fall within the meaning and purview and range of equivalency of the appended claims are therefore intended to be embraced therein.
What it is desired to claim and secure by Letters Patent of the United States is:
A device for attaching an intravenous tube to the limb of a, person comprising in combination, an elongated substantially rigid supporting plate curved longitudinally to lie transversely across one side of a limb and substantially fit the same, said supporting plate adjacent its opposite ends provided with transversely extending slots, a flexible strap underlying said plate having end portions extending upwardly through said slots adapted to extend from opposite ends of the plate and encircle portions of a limb between the ends of said plate, means for securing said end portions of the strap together for securing the supporting plate to the limb, a relatively rigid elongated clip member extending longitudinally of the supporting member and secured intermediate its opposite ends to an intermediate portion of said supporting plate and having opposite free end portions extending towards opposite ends of said plate, and the opposite free end portions of the clip member extending upwardly away from said supporting plate and then downwardly towards said supporting plate with the extremities thereof spaced therefrom forming with the upper side of said plate clips at Opposite sides of the intermediate portion of the plate having openings to receive a tube which are directed at opposite ends of said plate.
