SURGICAL SWAB.

application ined. April 24,1916.

To all whom t may concern:

Be it known that l, @Tiro C.. SCHULZ, a citizen of the United States, residing at Chicago,V in theocounty of Cook and State of lllinois, have invented certain new and useful 'Improvements in Surgical Swabs, of which the following is a speciiication.

This invention relates to a surgical swab and has for its object the provision of a simple means for transporting small quanti'- 7ties of a fcleansing, antiseptic or healing liquid in a manner best adapted to render it quickly available and readily applicable when needed.

Further objects and advantages of my invention will be apparent as it is better understood by reference to the following specification when read in connection with the accompanying drawing illustrating the preferred embodiment thereof.

Figure l is a view in perspective or' a surgical swab according to my invention;

F ig. 2 is a longitudinal section through the swab;

Fig. 3 is an elevation partially vin section illustrating the manner of breaking the container to release the liquid therefrom;

Fig. el is a section on the line fle-il of Fig. 2, and

Fig. 5 is a transverse section illustrating the manner of wrapping the container.

Referring to the drawing, l indicates an elongated preferably tubular sealed con-- tainer of glass or other readily riable material adapted to contain a small quantity of liquid. ln sealing the container l ll form aconstricted neck 2 projecting from one end thereof', the purpose of which will hereafter more fully appear.

rlhe container 1 is completely inclosed within a wrapper 3 comprising a plurality of turns of textile fabric, such as gauze bandage material, wound thereon as indicated in- Fig. 5 and extending beyond the neck 2 to form a soft, pliable brush or applicator means i for applying the liquid. A fastening 5, preferably'of cord, is disposed tightly' about the wrapper 3 to retain the container l within the wrapper. The wrapper 3, except for the brush applying means Ll, 'is im pregnated with a liquid resistant material, preferably paraffin, and is then ready for use.

To utilize my invention it is necessary merely to break therneck 2 of the container Specification of Letters Patent.

liquid. When the contents of the container.. A

has been utilized the swab is discarded.

During the application of the liquid this.

broken end of the receptacle is retained within the wrapper by the fastening A5'.

My invention is particularly desirable,'in

connection with first-aid packets, for apply'.

ing iodin to wounds, since small but suiiicient quantities of iodin may be readily carried by individuals in aI form which makes it quickly available and readily applicable when needed. My invention, aswill be ap-V parent, is equally elicient as a, meansr for transporting and applying liquids other than iodin and I do not desire to be limited t0 a n means adapted only to contain iodin.

Ffmrtherinore, the shape of the swab en# rabies it to be used surgically without the necessity of providing a handle of any kind.

rlhis is not only due tothe elongated shape of the swab which enables it to be handled without the fingers coming in contact with the brush but also to the parafflned protective wrapping which confines the liquid and absolutely protects the fingers against stain. In the practical use of swabs it may often happen that. the liquid will be permitted to iiow back from the brush but with a swab made in accordance with my invention the liquid will not permeate the protector even if it does run back onthe container from the'broken end thereof. It will be apparent, therefore., that if the swab is held in the hand and used i/n the manner intended there will beV no possibility of the liquid staining the vfingers and also that the antiseptic property of the liquid Will-be preserved. l/Vhenthe end of the container is `broken the liquid will flow lengthwise of the container directly to the soft pliablelfextile,

brush by which it may be applied to a wound without irritation. Practically all the liquid in the container may thus be used on a woundl since very little is absorbed by the brush and prote-ctor on pactnes's, simplicity of construction and 'the ,ease with which the contents may be released and applied, fills a long-felt need in the art.

It will be understood that various changes may be made in the form, construction and arrangement of the parts Without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention or sacrificing any of its material advantages, the form hereinbefore described being merely a preferred embodinient thereof.

I claim: y

1. A surgical swab comprising an elongated friable liquid container having a constricted end,'a pliable brush iliade of fabricated textile material embracing and secured to said container at the constricted end thereof, and means beyond said endconining the textile mate-rial to retain the end when broken, the portion of the textile inatelial embracing,r said" container heilig inipregnated with a liquid resistant.

A Surgical swab con'iprising an elongated liquid container, an impermeable wrapping,inclosing the lcontainer, a pliable brush extending beyond one end of the `container, and means for preventing portions of the container when broken from escaping to the brush.

3. A surgical swab comprising an elongated friable liquid container, a wrapper comprising a plurality of turns of textile fabric wound thereon, said Wrapper being extended beyond one end of the container, and n1 ans for confinii'ig the wrapper adjacent said end of the container to form the projecting free end of the wrapper into a soft pliable brush for applying the liquid in the container when the latter is broken.
