H. D. OAPITAIN. HAND BAG FOR PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS.

APPLICATION FILED JUNE 12, 1909.

Patented Nov. 21, 1911.

FFIQE.

HENRY D. GAPI'IAIN, OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.

HAND-BAG FOR PHYSICIANS AND SURGEONS.

Application filed June 12, 1909.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, HENRY D. CAPITAIN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook and State of Illinois have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Hand-Bags for Physicians and Surgeons, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact specification.

This invention relates to that class of hand bags for physicians and surgeons adapted to carry not only the surgical instruments which the surgeon is liable to need while visiting his various patients, but also a limited quantity of antiseptics or other.

medicinal supplies, bandages, etc., and it has especial reference to that class of these hand bags provided with means whereby the surgical instruments may be sterilized and retained in the sterilizing compartment free from contamination by the other articles which the surgeon or physician may see fit to deposit in the bag.

The quantity of material and instruments which the surgeon or physician is liable to require varies, of course, from time to time with the character of the case in which he happens to be engaged, and to the end that the bag may not be unduly large at times when only a small quantity of instruments or material is to be carried, and yet sufiiciently large at other times to accom- 'modate the maximum amount, the inven tion has for its primary object to provide an improved and eflicient form of surgeons or physicians hand bag containing a sterilizing compartment which shall be expansible to accommodate additional material or articles.

Another object of the invention is to provide an article of the described character which shall have both an expansible outer case or bag, and an expansible sterilizing compartment, so that the sterilizing com partment may be expanded to accommodate the varying quantity or number of instru ments, and the outer case or bag will expand proportionately, or the bag alone may be expanded independently of the sterilizing compartment to allow for the introduction of a varying quantity of material placed in the bag outside of the sterilizing compartment without expanding the sterilizing com partment.

With these ends in view, the invention consists in certain features of novelty in the construction, combination and arrangement Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Nov. 21, 1911.

Serial No. 501,719.

of parts by which the said objects, and certain other objects hereinafter appearing are accomplished, all as fully shown in the accompanying drawings, described in the following specification, and particularly pointed out in the appended claim.

In the said drawings-Figure 1 is a vertical, longitudinal section of a surgeons or physicians hand bag embodying this invention. Fig. 2 is a cross sect-ion on the line 22 of Fig. 1. Figs. 3 and 1 are perspective views of the top and body respec tively of the sterilizing compartment.

The outer case or bag proper comprises two main members, a bottom and inner member 1, and an outer and top member 2. The bottom member 1 is in the form of a rectangular box with an open top, while the top member is in the form of an inverted box with an open bottom telescoped with the member 1. The top and outer member 2, however, is preferably formed with hinged lids 3, 4:, provided, if desired, with a suitable clasp and lock 5, whereby access to the in terior may be readily gained without pulling the telescoped members 1 and 2 apart. hen the telescoped members 1, 2, are together, and the bag is in carrying condition, the two members are firmly bound against relative displacement by straps 5 which pass completely around the bag and are attached to the bottom member only by any suitable means, such as keepers 6, so that the top member may be readily raised and lowered with relation to the bottom member, as the quantity of the material in the bag varies, or may be readily lifted out of telescoped relation with the bottom member when desired.v

Arranged within the bottom member 1 is a sterilizing compartment which, when in the condition of its smallest capacity, preferably completely fills the bottom member. This sterilizing compartment as clearly shown in or quantity of instruments or material.

Within the body portion 7 of the steriliz- 1 ing compartment may be arranged a perforated tray 10 upon which the instruments or material may be placed, the tray being provided with handles 11 whereby its contents may be lifted out of the sterilizing compartment without being touched. desired, a number of bottles 12 may be carried within the sterilizing compartment on top of the tray 10 by means of a removable holder 13 detachably held in the compartment by clips or guides 14 at the ends of the body 7, and having individual clips 15 for the various bottles 12, so that when the sterilizing compartment is to be used for sterilizing the instruments, the tray of bottles may be lifted out temporarily to permit the tray 10 to be removed with the instruments, sutlicient play being allowed at the sides of the tray 10 to permit the tray to pass the clips 14 which hold the bottle holder 13.

WVith an apparatus thus constructed, it will be seen that if the instruments or material to be carried by the physician or surgeon do not exceed the capacity of the sterilizing compartment, all of the same may be placed in said compartment and the entire apparatus collapsed to its minimum size, as

shown in cross section in Fig. 2, but should it be desired to carry some articles or material which the surgeon does not wish to place in the sterilizing compartment for fear the instruments might be contaminated thereby, and for the further reason that it is not convenient to open the sterilizing compartment as it may be desired from time to time to put something into the bag or remove something therefrom, such additional articles or material may be placed on top of the sterilizing compartment and the outer casing or bag members 1 and 2 expanded accordingly, and only sufficiently to accommodate such arti- Copies of this patent may be obtained for five cents each, by addressing the Commissioner of Patents,

cles; the bag member 2 being provided with the hinged lids, ready access is afiorded to the bag without pulling the telescoped sections entirely apart, which would of course in. some cases allow small articles to fall out. Thus it will be seen that two independently expansible compartments are provided, one being the sterilizing compartment and the other being the ordinary carrying compartment constituted by the top of the sterilizing compartment and the side walls and top of the bag member 2. Should it be desired to gain access to the sterilizing compartment f without permitting the articles in the ordinary carrying compartment above to fall 1 out, the object may be accomplished by opening the top of the bag and reaching down through the material or articles resting on Qtop of the sterilizing compartment and grasping a handle 16 on said top and then ;by lifting the bag member 2 by means of 1 said handle, or at least while holding on to the handle, said bag member and its contents together with the lid or top 9 of the sterilizing compartment may be removed from the lower members.

WVhat I claim is:

A physicians and surgeons hand bag comprising a bottom member, a top member into which the bottom member is slidable, the top member being formed with lids hinged at the sides to uncover the inside of the bottom member, the latter remaining in position within the top member, and a sterilizing compartment formed by two telescopic members disposed within the said bottom member, the top member of the said compartment forming the bottom of a second compartment within the bag, the said sterilizing compartment members being removable from the top and bottom members through the top when the top and bottom members are retained in the same relative position.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specification, in the presence of two subscribing witnesses, on this 10th day of June, A. D. 1909.

HENRY D. OAPITAIN.
