UNITE sra'rns PATENT curios,

CALVIN D. MOALLUM, OF DE KALB, MISSISSIPPI.

SYRINGE.

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, CALVIN D, MCALLUM, a citizen of the United States, residing at De Kalb, in the county of Kemper and State of Mississippi, have invented new and useful Improvements in Syringes, of which the following is a specification.

My present invention relates to instruments for the treatment of the female organ of generation, and has for its object to provide eflicient means for irrigating or medieating the uterus and adjacent parts.

Another object of'the invention is the provision of means whereby the said treatment will cause but slight pain, and tend to make the treatment less disagreeable thanisthe case with devices of this kind at present in Still another object is the provision of means whereby the womb or parts of the vagina may be held in place while a doctor or attendant is treating an ulcer or cancer thereof,and at child-birth the device is indispensable to cleansethe womb and to Withdraw the placenta.

Other advantageous features of my invention will be fully understood from the followingdescription and claims when the same are readinconnection'with the drawings, accompanying and forming part of this specification, in which:

Figure 1 is a side elevation of, my novel device as applied to a syringe, and showing the rubber tubes I employv as surrounding and attached to the steel or gutta-percha nozzle of a syringe; two of the tubes being broken away." Fig. 2 is a view of my novel device, showing the cap or head of the nozzle in section, and surrounded by the tubes, and also showing in section the ring to which the tubes are connected at their lower ends; the lower portion of the nozzle being omitted for convenience of illustration. Fig. 3 is a detail view of the ring, showing the air inlet in proper position.

Similar numerals of reference designate corresponding parts in all of the views of the drawings.

'My novel device comprises among other features a ring 1, having apertures 2 in its Specification of Letters Patent.

tached to a nozzle of a syringe.

Serial No. 828,314.

upper face, the said apertures receiving short tubes 16, and at 3 I provide in the ring a neck, which neck is in communication with tubing 4, the said tubing being of the ordinary well known construction, and in turn is connected at its end remote from the neck, to a bulb 5. p I

Mounted upon and fixedly connected to and in communication with the apertures 2 through the medium of the short tubes 16 are tubes 6 of rubber or other inflatable material, and at 7 the said tubes are fixedly at- At this point I would have it understood that my device is capable of attachment to any kind of syringe now in use, but for the sake of illustrating the practicability of my novel device, I have shown a syringe comprising a bulb 9 snugly retaining in its neck a nozzle 10 formed of gutta-percha or other suitable material, the said neck inclosing the nozzle. The nozzle 10 is provided in its face with openings 11 and a cap or head 12; the said cap being also provided with an opening 13.

As will be readily appreciated by reference to the drawings, the tubes 6 are increased in diameter at a point slightly beyond their centers, as indicated by 14, for a very important purpose hereinafter pointed out. I In applying my novel device to a syringe,

:it is simply necessary to place the ring 1 over the head 12 of the nozzle 10, and run the ring down so that it will seat around the neck of the bulb 9, and then attach the tubes 6 at their upper ends through the medium of adhesive to the sides of the head 12 of the nozzle, and when this has been done, it will be seen that the said tubes 6 extend slightly beyond the cap or head 12 vice, it will follow that the device is not materially increased in diameter, and this together with the further fact that the soft rubber tubes 6 extend a short distance beyond the head 12 of the nozzle, and thereby serve as a cushion for the said head, the insertion of the device will not be attended with pain. After the device has been inserted, it is only necessary to inflate the tubes 6 through the medium of the air bulb 5, thereby holding the parts open, which will allow water or other fluids to pass freely through the severalpassages into the vagina, when the fluid is forced, by pressing. of the bulb 9, to pass through the guttapercha tube 10 and out of the openings 11 and 13 in said tube. p

The apparatus is indispensable in the treatment of ulcers or cancer of the womb, as in such cases after the device is inserted it is only necessary to inflate certain of the tubes, leaving the ones covering the infected part uninflated, stopping all the openings 11 in the nozzle, except those wished to be used, and thereby giving the doctor or attendant free use of his hands.

It will be gathered from the foregoing that my invention is inexpensive to produce, simple to operate and capable of easy and ready attachment to any style of syringe.

The construction shown and describedis the preferred embodiment of my invention, but I would have it understood that in the future practice of my invention such changes ormodiflcations may be made as fairly fall within the scope of the same as claimed. In the small sizes, four tubes only will be used.

Having described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters-Pat cut, is:

1. The combination with a syringe, of a hollow ring having tubes in communication therewith, a hollow neck contained in said ring and inflatable tubes connected at the upper portions of the first-named tubes.

2'. The combination with a syringe, of a hollow ring having tubes in communication therewith through the medium of apertures in the face of the ring, a hollow neck arranged at one side and in communication with the ring, and inflatable tubes connected to the first-named tubes at the upper ends thereof, whereby when air is introduced into the neck of the ring the tubes will be inhollow apertured ring receiving tubes in its said apertured portions, a hollow neck arranged in one side of the ring in communication through a hose with an air bulb, inflatable tubes the upper portions of, which are of increased diameter; the said tubes being in communication at their lower ends with the ring whereby air may be supplied to the inflatable tubes, and the upper portion of the said tubes being fixedly connected to and surrounding the nozzle of a syringe.

5. The combination in a syringe, of a nozzle provided with a cap at its upper end, and having outlets in its face below the cap; the said cap being provided with an outlet, a

bulb having a hollow neck capable of receiving and holding the lower portion of the:

nozzle in fixed relation to the bulb, a hollow ring provided with openings in its face re-' ceiving the lower. ends of tubes, inflatable tubes in communication with the upper portions of the first-named tubes and the upper portions of the inflatable tubes surroi'md-ing and fixedly connected to the cap of the nozzle. v

,6. The combination in a syringe, of a nozzle provided with a cap at its upper endand having outlets inits face below the cap the said cap being provided with an outlet, a bulb having a hollow neck capable of receiving and ho'lding'the lower portion of a nozzle whereby fluid may be forced throughthe nozzle, a hollow ring. provided with openings in its face-for receivin the lower ends of tubes andalso having a hollow neck in communication with an air bulb, inflata ble tubes mounted onthe upper portions-of the first-named tubes whereby air may be introduced intothe inflatable tubes through the medium of the air bulb; the upper portions of the inflatable tubes being. of a greater diameter than their lower portions, and means for connectingthe inflatable tubes with the sides of the cap.
