VAGINAL SYRINGE June 4,1929.

Original Filed Feb. 21, 1924 now be described: The person desiring to use the syringe lies flat on the back, and the injection tube will be inserted into the mouth of the vagina until the stopper 6 completely seals the same and the part 6" is spanned to establish a passage across said part between groove t and passage 8. The inner end of the injection tube will then be directly in front of the mouth of the womb, so that with the clamp 13 open, the cleansing fluid may freely pass therethrough and be discharged from the slots 12, at the bottom of the vagina from Where it is forced upward the entire length of vagina; this action causes the mouth of the vagina to open sufficiently to allow the cleansing fluid to drain into the gap 6 and through drain passage 8 and drain tube 10 into a receptacle on the floor. The sald process continues until the supply of fluid is exhausted, thereby thoroughly cleansing and irrigating the walls of the vagina and the entrance to the womb and thereafter the vagina again seals the gap 6*. VVhen it is desired to dilate the walls of the vagina, the clamp 13 will be slightly closed to partially close the drain tube 10 which will permit a faster flow of liquid into the interior of the vagina than the outflow of the fluid therefrom. This will cause the fluid to collect within the vagina and consequently dilate the walls thereof so that all of the fold may be thor- I oughly irrigated.

hen the supply of cleansing fluid has been exhausted, there will be a difference of height in the fluid in the drain tube and the supply tube and in View 'of the pressure of air in the supply tube, there will be a siphoning action which will drain all of the liquid froln the interior of the vagina. In most syringes it is practically impossible to use the same while the person is on their back,

but with my device it will be quite simple to thoroughly an cl efficiently manipulate the syringe so that the interior walls of the vagina will be thoroughly cleansed and irrigated, and the fluid which would remain therein, due to the fact that the mouth of the vagina is on a higher level than the interior thereof, will be positively siphoned therefrom.

If it is desired to secure a greater pressure of the fluid than is possible by having the 7 source of supply elevated above the injection tube, it is made possible by using the valved bulb 15.

It will be understood that while I have described my preferred form of vaginal syringe, I do not intend to limit myself to the specified construction of same, as many minor changes in detail of construction may be resorted to without departure from the spirit of the invention.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim is:

1. In a syringe, a hollow injection tube, a shield mounted upon the said tube, and held in place at one end by a raised shoulder, and at the front by a threaded nipple, the threaded nipple attached to the end of the said tube, and resting against the concave-face of the saidshield', the said nipple having at its outer end means for attaching a rubber tube and holding the said tube thereon.

2. A vaginal syringe, a hollow injection tube having a plurality of radially extending flanges at the nozzle only, saidnozzle having a plurality of narrow discharge slots formed between said flanges to discharge the fluid in spray sheets, the bottom of the syringe having a grooved drain projecting therefrom at its periphery and of uniform vwidth throughout its depth on the exterior of the injection tube and throughout the length thereof, an outwardly flared collar at the opposite ends of the tube, inner endof the grooved drain tera continuation of the groove through the shield to the out-let.

3. A vaginal syringe, a hollow injection tube having a plurality of radially extending flanges formed at the outer end thereof, a plurality of discharge slots being formed between said flanges, a pair of substantially parallel flanges extending from the bottom of the tube throughout its length and forming a drain groove along the same of a depth at least as great as its width, an anular flange on the tube at the rear end of the groove, a shield secured on tube in rear of the collar and hav ing a drain opening therethrough curved toward the collar with a space between the two adapted to be closed over by the walls of the vagina without closing said space to form a continuation of the drain groove, and the open side of said groove being closed by the walls of the vagina across the edges of the obstructing said groove, a tube connected to a engers theinjeaicn tubers: supplyi g the blea-nsing (fluid tliereto,-and a tube connected-fi te drain fordrainingthe"agina;

tube, there being narrow raidi al formedon the outer slurfaceof said tube com- :prising a pair of spaced walls, extending the whole length of said tube, and disposed in angular relation less than an obtuse angle so that the groove is of no greater width than its depth atany point on its length, astopper positioned at the inner end of said tube in spaced relation with said drain groove, said stopper being provided with a discharge passage, separate means for conduc ting the cleansing fluid to and from said tube, means for regulating the flow of said fluid, and

means for selectively opening or closing said fluid conducting means.

5. A syringe comprising a hollow injection tube, a plurality of radiallyextending flanges formed at the outer end thereof, discharge slots being positioned between said flanges,

flanges extending from the periphery of the tube throughoutthe length thereof at the bot.- tom and forming a drain groove throughout the length of the tube of uniform width and depth throughout its length, said groove being approximately as deep as it is wide, and

, means to conduct and drain a cleansing fluid to andfrom the nozzle and drain groove re spectively. a j a 6. A syringe comprising a hollow injection tube, a plurality of radially extendingflanges formed at the outer end thereof, discharge slots being positioned between said flanges, flanges extending from the periphery of the tube throughout the length thereof at the bottom and forming a drain groove throughout the length of the tube, open at bothends in alignment with the groove, said groove being approximately as deep as it is wide, a stopper positioned at the inner end of said tube in spaced relation with said drain groove, said stopper being provided with an outlet passage'in alignment with said drain groove, means for conducting a cleansing fluid through said tube, means for conductlng said fluid from' said outlet passage, and means for select vely opening or closing said fluid conducting means and for simultaneously closing the same whereby to supply the fli'iidzwithout discharge for dilating the vagina or for creating a siphoning action to discharge all of the cleansing fluid from the vagina through said, groove and portions of the vagina positioned therebeneath. Y I i 7. A vaginal syringe comprising a hollow injection'tube, discharge slots at the outer end thereof, grooved channel formed along the bottomof the tube fromtip to rear'end thereof open at both ends and having spaced sub stantially parallel walls forming a relatively I width; collar on -the rear end of the. tube, a

j 8. Ina vaginal syringe, a round hollow injection tube having a pair of spaced parallel walls projecting from the bottom thereof in the direction of chords of an arc of the circle of the tube forming a drain groove of uniform width and substantially as deep as it is wide, and a plurality of radially extended forwardly tapered flanges at extreme forward-end of the tube upon the exterior surface thereof and terminating at the extreme forward end of the tube,there being slots between said flanges.

9. A syringe of the class described, includ' ing a round. hollow injection tube having a pair of spaced parallel flanges along the bottom thereof parallel to the. axis of'the tube and with their outer edges in the same horizontal plane, forming a drain groove extending from the tip end of the injection tube to the realend thereof and being of uniform width throughout its depth and length, the depth being at least great as its width and said drain groove being open at both ends, radial flanges on the periphery of the tube ex tending from near the forward end of the tube to the tip thereof, the tip end of the tube wall having radial slots therein between the flanges, means for conveying fluid through the tube, and means leading'froni the rear end of the groove to drain the same.
