E. SOKOLIK Nov. 27, 1951 SYRINGE Filed June 21, 1948 iatenteci Nov. 27, 1951 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE SYRINGE Edward Sokolik, New Brighton, Minn.
Application June 21, 1948, Serial No. 34,159
My present invention relates to improvement in syringes for general use especially for feminine use and the object is to provide a Syringe that intromits and simultaneously withdraws a syringing fluid.
Further advantages Will be apparent as the novel combination, arrangement and .construction are subsequently specified and claimed.
In the drawings herewith:
Fig. 1 is an elevation of the invention;
Fig. 2 is a transverse section on line 2-2, Figure 1; and
Fig. 3 is a transverse section on line 3--3, Figure 1. v
The syringe 3 is comprised of a nozzle 4 and a cross-head fitting 5 provided with compressible bulbs, a supply bulb 2!! and receiving bulb 23 adaptably connected preferably by a screwthreaded joint 8. The nozzle 4 has an open end 6 adapted for connection to the fitting 5 and a closed end I. Formed in the nozzle 4, extending from the open end 6 up to the closed end I, is a central outlet passageway l .and inlet passageways II, at least one on each opposite side of said central passageway Ill. The central outlet passageway ID is transitioned into a preferably circular connection means with a discharge orifice I2 formed therein. This connection means is illustrated as being in the form of a shank, and the open end I3 of the inlet passageways H, is preferably provided with screw-threads 8, which run deep enough to permit the tube M in the cross-head fitting to sealably engage the connecting means of the open end I2 by detachably connecting the preferably reducing elbowshaped fitting 5 by the screw-threaded joint 8. Formed in the periphery of the nozzle 4, are dispersed outlet apertures ll leading from the inlet passage-ways II, and inlet apertures l8 leading to the outlet passage-way Ill.
The nozzle 4, as illustrated, is shaped to conform to the vagina as indicated at I9, and is provided With a radially flaring flange 9 to prevent the extrusion of the syringing fluid.
The cross-head fitting 5 comprises preferably an elbow-shaped inlet casing 16 so curved as to facilitate convenient application of the syringe 3 and to promote gravitational flow of the syringing fluid, and is provided preferably with screwthreads 2| to connect with the screw-threads 8, and adapted to connect at the other end [5 thereof to the supply bulb 20. Concentrically disposed in said preferably elbow-shaped casing I6, is an outlet tube It adapted to connect with the connection means of the discharge opening 12 and 6 Claims. (01. 128-240) emerging from the casing l6, preferably in the form of a shank 22 adapted for connection to the receiving bulb 23. The bulbs 20 and 23 are of elastic material having compressible characteristics, and in operation the receiving bulb 23 is compressed first, and subsequently released to effect a suctioning function. The supply bulb 2B is then compressed to intromit into the shank I5, the fluid, which is simultaneously suctioned up by the bulb 23 as same is assuming the form of a balloon. The bulbs 20 and 23 are adapted to be manipulated in the palm of the hand and to serve as shankhandles, whereby to apply the nozzle 4.
This is a preferable form of the invention and other forms are possible with respect to the scope and concept of the subjoined claims.
1. An improved two-way feminine syringe of the character described, comprising: a two-way nozzle including an internally applicable syringing portion and'an externally applicable head portion, a pair of inlet passageways extending longitudinally in the nozzle, a central outlet passageway extending longitudinally between said inlet passageways, the nozzle havin dispersed outlet apertures in the periphery of the syringing portion leading from the inlet passageways and dispersed inlet apertures in the periphery of the syringing portion leading to the outlet passageway; said head portion including a radially flaring flange to afford a barrier to the extrusion of the syringing fluid, a two-way cross-head fitting connected to the nozzle, said cross-head fitting having an inlet passageway communicating with the inlet passageways of the nozzle and an outlet entrant tube communicating with the connecting means of the central outlet passageway; a pair of compressible bulbs, one a supply bulb in communication with the inlet passageway of the cross-head fitting, the other receiving bulb in communication with the outlet entrant tube of the cross-head fitting.
2. The structure of the nozzle as defined in claim 1, in which, the nozzle is of a substantially arcuate shape.
3. The structure of the nozzle defined in claim 1, in which the nozzle is of a substantially clavate shape.
4. The structure of the' nozzle defined in claim 1, in which, the girth and length of the nozzle is adapted to distend the folds of the vagina and to extend up to the uterus for universally effective syringing.
