CLAY WILSON, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

INHALEE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented :een a, tera.

Application filed April 17, 1913. Serial No. 761,678.

To all whom t may concern:

Be it known that I, CLAY VILsoN, a citizen of the United States, residing in the borough of Manhattan, city, county, and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Inhalers, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to the class of inhalers adapted to act as containers of medicated volatile fluids to be used for purposes of inhalation in the treatment of diseases or alfections of the throat, nasal passages, &c., and it consists in the construction and ar- Y rangement of parts hereinafter described and claimed specifically, a distinctive feature being the formation of the top of the container with an air inlet passage extending approximately at right angles thereto or transversely as related to axis of the device, in conjunction with an inhaling nozzle extending approximately parallel to said axis,-said inlet and outlet ducts opening into the container on opposite sides thereof, substantially, so that the impregnated air to be inhaled, taken from above the surface of the liquid contents in any case, may or may not be drawn through said liquid as may be found most expedient, and according to the position in which the inhaler is held during the act of inhalation, all as hereinafter more fully set forth.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1, is a top view of my improved inhaler; Fig. 2, a side elevation thereof in a vertical position; Fig. 3, a similar view showing the inhaler tilted so as to cause the liquid con- -tents to cover the inner port of the air inlet duct; Fig. et, a section taken upon plane of line l-fl Fig. 1.

My improved inhaler is preferably, although not necessarily, made of glass, the container or receptacle C, being made integral with the inhalation or exhaust nozzle z', and the air inlet duct a. The vapor exhaust port 1, and the air inlet port al, are situated on opposite sides of the top of the container C, and the air duct a, extends laterally across the top of said container and preferably nestles close to the contracted neck of the inhalation nozzle z', in order to obviate unnecessary protrusion, and also to bring the exterior port a2 of the air duct a, as nearly in line as possible with the center of the inhalation nozzle t', so that when the inhaler is tilted as shown in Fig. 3, the said exterior inlet port a2 will be well above the level of the medicated liquid in the container, thereby guarding against overflow, even if the inhaler is placed in a horizontal position, provided of course that the inhalation nozzle t' is uppermost.

By this construction and arrangement of parts it is obvious that the inhaler in practice may be used in two ways. Tvlhen'held upright, or approximately so, the air and vapor may be withdrawn through the inhalation nozzle t', from above the surface of I the medicated fluid in the container C, without having passed the air through said fluid; or by tilting the inhaler as indicated in Fig. 3, the exhaust through the inhalation nozzle c', will cause the inflow of air through the duct a, to pass through the medicated liquid before it can be inhaled.

In the iirst instance given the volatile medicant impregnates the air slightly and a moderate treatment of the affected parts is attained, whereas in the second instance the air becomes impregnated more thoroughly with the medicinal vapor, and a more radical treatment is assured. Thus the user can modify the treatment to suit requirements or his taste or convenience, simply by varying the position in which the inhaler is held during use. Even when held upright in a substantially vertical position, the inrush of air through the duct a, to replace that withdrawn through the inhalation nozzle i, is suflicient to agitate and disturb the medicated fluid in the container C, thereby facilitating the impregnation of the air preparatory to inhalation; but when the air is made to pass positively through the medicated fluid as above described it is obvious that the agitation will be greater and the impregnation of the air rendered more thorough. f

The simplicity of my device is exceptional, and its cost nominal as compared with inhalers heretofore known and used, so far as I am aware. Aside from the corks or stoppers S, S, used to seal it when not required for actual treatment it is a one piece device in which all internal tubes or appliances are entirely dispensed with. There are no operative parts, tubes, or packings, and hence nothing to foul up or get out of order, and it can be readily washed out and thoroughly cleansed whenever desired, and recharged with any volatile medicant that it may be found expedient to use in the treatment of parts aected. adapted for use commercially as an original Furthermore it is package7 to be sold charged with a suitable quantity of a prescribed medicinal preparation designed for treatment by inhalation, ready for irninediate use on the removal of the Stoppers S, S. The latter may, if desired, be connected by cords to the contracted neck of the inhalation nozzle z', or to the duct a, if preferred, for the purpose of preventing loss or displacement.

What l claim as my invention and desire to secure by Letters Patent is;

l. An inhaler of the character designated comprisingl a container, an inhalation nozzle positioned at one side of the top thereof, and an air duct communicating with said container on the other side of the top and extending laterally across said top, for the purpose set forth.

2. A one piece glass inhaler of the character designated consisting of a body portion constituting` the liquid container formed with an inhalation nozzle communicating with one side thereof and With an air duct communicating With the other side thereof, said air duct extending laterally across the end of the container for the purpose described.
