2 Sheets-Sheet Z FIGS 20 BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION Many surgical procedures require the use of tubings, as for example naso-gastric tubes, oxygen therapy tubing, drainage tubes, various catheters, intravenous administration, and the like.

Inasmuch as such tubings or tubes extend between the patient and a supply means or drainagevessel, it is important that the tubings or tubes be restrained against undesirable movement thereof, to insure proper surgical procedures as well as comfort of the patient.

To this end, adhesive tapes have been used to anchor the tubing or tubes directly to the patient, or to the bed linen, bed or other suitable substrate.

However, such known adhesive tapes exhibit a number of disadvantages, including bulkiness and uncomfortability for the patient; restraint against both lateral and longitudinal movements, to thereby prevent longitudinal movement; and a tendency to premature peeling and inadvertent release of the anchored tubing.

Since conventional adhesive tapes use pressure sensitive adhesives which allow peeling upon tensioning edge portions of the tape; known anchoring tapes have a tendency toward premature peeling as an incident to accumulated tensioning forces applied thereto. Such peeling action and release of the surgical tubing may jeopardize the therapy or surgical procedures involved.

Accordingly, an object of this invention is to provide improved anchoring tape means for securing surgical tubing and the like, to a selected substrate; the tape means including tab portions with a strap portion extending therefrom, the strap portion and tab portion being interconnected in a manner to isolate tensioning forces on the strap portion from the peripheral edge portions of the tab portions to thereby prevent premature peeling of the tab portions from the substrate.

Another object of this invention is to provide adhesive tape means of the character described wherein the strap portion is wrapped about the tubing and is adhesively engaged therewith to prevent either lateral or longitudinal movement of the tubing relative to the substrate, or is wrapped with its uncoated surface in contact with the tubing to prevent only lateral movement of the tubing relative to the substrate, while permitting longitudinal movement thereof.

A further object of this invention is to provide an improved adhesive anchoring tape which includes a relatively narrow strap portion which temiinates in one or two enlarged anchoring tab portions, the juncture of the strap portion and the tab portions being at a point inwardly of the periphery of the tab portion whereby accumulated stresses due to tensioning of the strap portion will be concentrated at a point inwardly of peripheral edge portions of the tab portions to thereby avoid premature peeling of the edges of the tab portions.

Still another object of this invention is to provide adhesive anchoring tape of the character described, which is of minimized dimensions and bulk, thereby simplifying application procedures and maximizing comfort for the patient when the tape is applied to his skin.

Yet another object of this invention is to provide adhesive anchoring tape of the character described, which is of a simple construction, is fabricated of stock sheet materials in a manner to materially reduce production costs; and is readily and compactly packaged for shipment and storage.

Other objects of this invention will in part be obvious and in part hereinafter pointed out.

FIGS. 8, 9 and 10 are plan views showing varied forms of utilization of the tape shown in FIG. 7.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS The tabbed anchoring tape of the instant invention comprises a strap portion of narrow width which terminates in one or two tab portions of relatively enlarged surface area. The tab portions may have various geometric configurations, as desired. The tape devices are conveniently stamped by suitable dies from sheet material which may be formed of plasticfilm of suitable gauge, which is coated on one side thereof with pressure sensitive adhesive, which adhesive layer is covered with a protective sheet, in the usual manner; the protective sheet being peeled away to expose the adhesive when the tape is to be used.

Thus, as shown in FIG. 1, l0 designates a tabbed anchoring tape embodying the invention. The same comprises a pair of similar tab portions 11, 12 which are of circular configuration; the tab portions having peripheral edges 13, 14 respectively.

The tab portions 11, 12 are integrally interconnected by a relatively narrow strap portion 15 which is joined at its opposite ends to the respective tab portions 11, 12 at a point indicated at 16, which is located inwardly of peripheral edges 13, 14 of said tab portions.

The terminal portions 17 of strap 15 are defined by side edges 17A which are laterally spaced from edges 18A of slots 18 extending inwardly of peripheral edges 13; and from edges 19A of slots 19 extending inwardly of peripheral edge 14.

The tapes 10 are formed by stamping out sheets of polyvinyl chloride of a selected gauge; the sheets being precoated on one side with conventional pressure sensitive adhesive and protected by the usual covers C; the adhesive being indicated at 20.

The tape 10 may be used to anchor a tubing T to a substrate S, which may be the skin of a patient, bed linen, bed portions or the like. As shown in FIG. 2, the cover C has been removed to expose the adhesive coated surface 20. The medial portion of strap 15 is wrapped about tubing T to form the single turn 21.

It will be apparent that in this case, the adhesive coating 20 will contact and engage the .tubing T; and with the tab portions 1 1, l2 pressed against substrate S, the tubing T will be restrained against both lateral and longitudinal movement with respect to substrate S.

It has been found that with the tensile forces concentrated at points 16 as the juncture of strap 15 and tab portions 1 1, 12; the periphery l3, l4 and forward tab portions 22, 23 of the tab portions 11,12, respectively will not peel prematurely and the anchoring means 10 will hold tubing T in place relative to substrate S as long as desired.

If tubing T is to be restrained only laterally but permitted to have movement longitudinally with respect to substrate S; then tape 10 is applied to tubing T and substrate S as previously described except that the strap portion 15 is wound about tubing T with its uncoated surface in contact with the tubing and the adhesive coated surface 20 outermost, as shown in FIG. 3. Thus, the tubing T may slide longitudinally in turn 21 of tape strap portion 15, while restrained against laterally movement relative to substrate S.

While tape 10 is shown as having its strap portion 15 integral with tab portions l1, l2; alternatively, as shown in FIG. 4; tape 10A comprises a pair of similar tab portions 25, 26 which are of rectangular configuration with rounded corners.

.InvAAe Tab portions 25, 26 are interconnected by a strap portion 27 of narrow width and slightly enlarged terminal portions 28.

The terminal portions 28 of strap 27 are suitably secured to central portions of tab portions 25, 26 by adhesive, welding or the like. Thus, the juncture points 31 of strap portions 30 and the tab portions 25, 26 are again located inwardly of the peripheral edge of said tab portions 25, 26. Here again tensile stresses are concentrated inwardly of the peripheral edge of tab portions 25, 26 to prevent premature peeling of said tab portions from any substrate, not shown, to which tape A is attached, in the manner previously described; the adhesive coating and cover sheet for the same, not being shown.

In some instances, but a single anchoring tab is necessary to secure tubing T to substrate S. In this case, as shown in FIG. 5, tape 103 comprises a single tab portion 11 with strap 17 extending therefrom, in the manner previously described. Thus, the juncture point 16 is located inwardly of peripheral edge 13 and edges 17A are laterally spaced from edges 18A defining slots 18 extending inwardly of edge 13.

Tape 10B is used to engage tubing T, as shown in FIG. 6,

after cover C has been removed to expose adhesive layer 20 on tab portion 11 and strap 17'. The free end of tape 17, indicated at 30, is wrapped around tubing T and adhered to an inner portion of strap 17 thus locking tubing T against longitudinal movement while allowing limited lateral movement thereof.

In FIG. 7 is shown another embodiment of the invention wherein the tape 40 comprises adjacent, opposed tab portions 41, 42 with intervening, short strap portions 43, 44 extending in opposite directions from a central connecting portion 45, which also connects tab portions 41, 42.

The strap portions 43, 44 have their junctures 46 with central portion 45, located inwardly of the peripheral edges of tab portions 41, 42; the side edges 47 of strap portions 43, 44 being laterally spaced from edges 50 of said tab portions, to define slots 48 which terminate at their inner ends in enlarged portions 49. Adhesive 20 and a cover Sheet C is applied to one side of tape 40. The strap portions 43, 44 terminate at their outer ends in enlarged portions 43A, 44A respectively.

in using tape 40, in one case, as shown in FIG. 8, separate tubings T, T may be anchored against longitudinal or transverse movement by the respective strap portions 43, 44 which are wrapped around and adhered to said tubings T, T. Or, as shown in FIG. 9, a single tubing T is anchored in place by the oppositely extending strap portions 43, 44 adhesively secured to said tubing T which overlies said strap portions. Further, as shown in FIG. 10, a pair of tubings T, T in side by side relation are held together by strap portions 43, 44 extending toward each other with their enlarged portions 43A, 44A in overlapped, adhesively secured relation, allowing only limited lateral movement while permitting longitudinal movement since the uncoated surface of said strap portions are in contact with the tubings.

While the devices 10, 10A, 10B and 40 set forth herein are formed from synthetic resin sheeting such as polyvinyl chloride or the like; other sheetings of textile woven and nonwoven fabrics, as well as sheetings of various suitable materials may be used.

It is understood that the tabbed anchoring tape means of the instant invention can be used for anchoring a variety of medical and surgical adjuncts; including nasal oxygen cannula, urinary drainage catheter, urinary drainage tubing, intravenous administration. tubing, intravenous indwelling arterial catheter, and the like; as well as for securing surgical dressings in place.

Further, such tape means may be used for anchoring elongated articles such as wiring or the like, to various substrates; thus avoiding premature separation of the anchored article from its substrate.
