'1 Claim. (Cl. 311-9 This invention relates to a device for attachment to surgical table for supporting body app ndages during surgical operation thereon.
The conventional surgical table has no attachments such as arm supports, head supports or leg supports, having drainage facilities.
It is an object of this invention to provide supports for body appendages during surgical operation thereon.
It is another object to provide for example, an arm support suitable for use in conjunction with a stretcher or alternatively with a conventional surgical table.
It is a further object to provide a surgical device having drainage elements capable of being sterilized.
It is yet another object to provide a compact, easily portable device, readily attachable to a stretcher or surgical table.
These and other objects of this invention will become ed S at Pa cfj Q i'ng outlet spout 17 under which a; pail 18 is disposed upon a wheeled carriage 19. f I As'shown in Fig.2, the basin 15 is provided with an end flange 20 and apairfot side flanges 21. The side flanges -21 are provide'd with integral extensions '22 which extend suitably beyond the basin 15.
A securing board 23, preferably of wood, is preferably provided with a plurality of apertures 24. The board 23 is inserted between the mat 11 and the table 12 and the mat being of soft material is pressed into the apertures 24 thereby rigidly securing the board. The board 23 is, for example, secured to flange extensions 22 by a plurality of screws 25 (Fig. 4).
As shown in Fig. 5, a screen 26 of stainless steel is secured circumferentially between a top rim 27 having an integral depending leg 28 and a bottom circumferential support plate 29 by means of plurality of rivets 30.
In use, a sterilized cloth 31 is disposed over the entire basin 15 and then a sterilized screen is disposed upon the cloth 31 over the edges of said basin thereby presenting a sterile surface upon which the arm is rested. The arm being operated upon is washed with sterile saline solution during the operation, the wash waters passing through the cloth 31 and into basin 15 from whence they apparent upon reading the following descriptive disclosure taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawing in which;
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a conventional surgical table having attached thereto an arm support embodiment of this invention showing a sterilized screen dis posed upon a sterilized cloth, the latter being disposed upon a basin receptacle,
Fig. 2 is a top view of the basin receptacle with the screen and cloth removed,
Fig. 3 is a view taken on line 3--3 of Fig. 2,
Fig. 4 is a view taken on line 4-4 of Fig. 2,
Fig. 5 is a view taken on line 55 of Fig. 1,
Fig. 6 is a perspective view of a head support modification,
Fig. 7 is a side elevation view of the head rest modification,
Fig. 8 is a perspective view of a pair of clamps used to secure the basin receptacle to the rails disposed upon the conventional surgical table, and
Fig. 9 is a view, broken away in part, showing the manner of securing the basin receptacle of Fig. 8 to the rails of a surgical table.
Turning to the drawing, and particularly to Fig. 1, a conventional surgical table 10 is provided with a mat 11 upon which the patient lies, said mat being disposed upon a table 12 supported upon an elevating undercarriage structure 13.
As shown in Figs. 1 to 4, the armattachment modification 14 is provided with a basin 15 open at the top and of preferably an equilateral triangular cross-section.
The bottom trough 16 slopes downwardly to a dependare removed through spout 17.
Turning now to Figs. 8 and 9 there is shown a method of attaching the basin 15 to a conventional rail 32 disposed on the side of the surgical table 10. In this modification a support bar 33 is welded to one end of the pair of side flanges 21 and a pair of conventional clamps 34 are secured to bar 33 as by welding. Clamps 34 are of a quick fastem'ng type so that the attachment may be readily secured firmly to a conventional surgical table.
The attachment is preferably provided with a telescopic leg support 35 at its outer end, said leg support being provided with conventional locking means to lock the extended leg in a suitable position. Leg 35 is preferably welded to the outer end wall of basin 15.
Figs. 6 and 7 show a modified attachment used to support the head of a patient while on the operating table. This attachment is provided with a pair of horizontally disposed rods 36 secured by welding to the end wall of basin 15. The rods 36 are disposed into a pair of suitable longitudinal cavities and then-locked by means of thumb screws 37 secured to the undersurface of table 12.
Clearly there are many ways of securing the attachment of this invention to a surgical table but all such conventional ways fall within the scope of this invention.
This invention has been illustrated by means of a plurality of embodiments but it is not to be limited to these embodiments.
A bedside operating table for surgery of the corporeal extremities comprising a longitudinal metal basin of V-shaped cross-section having an integral V-shaped element forming side walls and a trough sloping downwardly from the rear of said V-shaped element to the front thereof, said basin having a relatively small rear triangular end wall fixedly secured to the rear edge of said element and also having a relatively large front triangular wall 'fixedly secured to the front edge of said element, said =basin having an outlet opening in the trough of the V- shaped elernent adjacent said front triangular wall, said basin having a rectangular top opening formed by said side and end walls; a pair of opposed longitudinal L- shaped metal flanges fixedly secured to the exterior surface of each of said side walls of said V-shaped element in suitable spaced relationship to the respective edges, said longitudinal L-shaped flanges extending suitably beyond the front triangular wall; a relatively small L-shaped flange fixedly secured to the exterior surface of said rear triangular end wall adjacent the top edge thereof; a holder board having, at least one large aperture removably secured to and between the extending portions of said longitudinal flanges iinlspaced ;relatifinshi gv 110 the front end Wall of said basin; a rectangularwireiscreen assembly having a substantially peripheral depending skirt disposed over the rectangular opening of said basin and adapted to seize a sterilized cloth disposed upon said opening of said basin and a telescopic leg fixedly secured .to the exterior surface of the rear end wall.
