Description

July 3, 1934. L. M. ROSENBLUM BANDAGE Filed Aug. 15. 1931 Patented July 3, 1934 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 1 Claim.
This invention relates in general, to bandages and particularly to bandages for the neck, throat or ears.
In the treatment of mumps or other glandular 5 ailments of the throat and ears, a great deal of difflculty is usually experienced in properly bandaging the patient to obtain effective results, to say nothing of his comfort while the bandage is retained in its proper position. Very frequently these bandages shift from their proper position or else become entirely removed from the seat of ailment, especially while the patient is in a reclining or sleeping position. Then, too, when it is desired to use a hot water bottle or an ice l5 bag, or various packs for treating certain ailments, it is extremely difficult to localize this medium for obtaining the required results without-inconveniencing the patient. When the usual bandage slips or becomes displaced from its affected portion, as for example, while the patient is asleep, he may be caused to suffer serious results due to the setting in of complications.
In an effort to overcome the above and other objectionable features in the usual methods of bandaging the neck or ears of a patient, the invention may be said to contemplate the provision of an extremely simple and highly effective bandage which may be readily applied to the affected region of the patient, worn without the least discomfort, without fear of its accidental removal or partial displacement, and which may be easily removed in the minimum amount of time when desired.
Throughout the specification and claim, the 3 use of the term medicaments is to be interpreted to mean any kind of dressing, medicine, poultice, pack, liquid or solid that may be used for the treatment of sickness.
In the drawing, in which the same reference characters refer to the same parts throughout, preferred embodiments of my invention are illus trated.
Figure 1 is a view in perspective, illustrating one of a number of applications in which my improved bandage may be applied to a patient;
Figure 2 is a face view thereof, illustrating it in its flattened position;
Figure 3 is a sectional view taken on the line 33 of Figure 2, shown on an enlarged scale;
Figure 4 is a similar view, but illustrating another form of my invention;
Figure 5 is a somewhat diagrammatic showing or development of the blank employed in the form of my invention shown in Figure 4; and
Figure 6 is a view in perspective partially broken away, illustrating a somewhat different embodiment of my invention.
My invention in the forms or embodiments shown in the drawing and briefly described, comprises a bandage having a body portion 10, of 00 suflicient length to encircle the neck of a patient and provided with one or more upwardly extending rounded ends, shown as at 11, integrally formed with the body portion 10, pockets 12, and means 13, located at the extreme ends of the 66 body portion 10, for securely tying or fastening the bandage in its proper position.
Referring to the embodiment of my invention illustrated in Figures 1, 2 and 3, it will be noted that I employ a filler 14, which may be formed 70 of burkram or the like, for the purpose of retaining the bandage in its proper position, at the same time affording it the desired amount of flexibility. This buckram filler 14, is preferably formed in the substantial shape as the outline of the bandage 10, and is adapted to be covered by a flannel or the like, and preferably stitched along the marginal edges thereof, for preventing its accidental displacement with respect to the filler 14, as for example, during its use or during 30 its washing or cleaning operation. Y
Although each side of my improved bandage may be effectually used adjacent the face or neck of the patient, depending upon the ailment or treatment, I will, for the convenience of descrip- 35 tion, term sheet 15, as the inner covering and the similarly formed sheet or strip 16, as the outer covering.
In the embodiment of my invention above referred to, I may form the covering for the pockets on with a sheet of similar material, shown as 17, which may be opened back upon itself along its upper edge and stitched, as indicated at 18, whereas the lower edges thereof, may be folded hack-upon themselves for the purpose of enclosing or fastening the lowermost end of the lining 19. The coverings 15 and 16, together with a pocket covering 17, and its associated lining 19, are now securely held together in their assembled position by means of the marginal stitches 20. The upper ends of the coverings 15 and 16, it will be appreciated, may be secured together by means of stitching 21.
It may be here stated that the lining 19, may be formed of a comparatively thin rubber sheeting or any other material impervious to moisture and may be readily movable from its full line position to theposition shown in dotted lines, for reasons which will be hereinafter described. When the bandage is employed with the pockets 12, on the outer side thereof, as shown in Figure 1, I have found it desirable to form the upper edges of the covering 1'1, in a straight line rather than have them conform to the rounded ends 11, for the purpose of readily permitting the insertion or removal of the ice packs or medicaments into and from the pockets without discomfort to the patient, and at the same time presenting a greater area of local contacting surface. Obviously when the bandage is worn in this manner, a poultice, particles of ice or other wet dressings may be quickly renewed without removing the bandage from the patients neck, thereby maintaining the same desired temperature and avoiding any possible shocks to the patient which would result with the removal of the bandage. In an application of this kind the lining 19, should be adjacent the pocket covering 17, to prevent the saturation of the outer side thereof. It may be here stated that I may find it convenient to rubberine or waterproof both the covering 16, ad- Jacent the pocket 12, and its respective pocket coverinz 17.
The fastening means indicated generally as at 13, may consist of a pair of edges or ribbons suitably stitched at each end of the bandage 10, for the purpose of providing an adjustable and highly satisfactory fastening means.
In the embodiment of my invention shown in Figures 4 and 5, I employ a single piece of flannel covering 22, which isadapted to be folded at 23, one side extended upwardly along the filler material 14, and passed downwardly along its front face thereof, to.which it may be secured by means of stitching 24. The opposite or front side is extended upwardly, as shown at 25, to provide the covering for the pocket 12. As clearly shown in Figure 4 of the accompanying drawing, the lower edge of the lining 19, may be interposed between the lower return edges of this covering and securely held in place by means of the stitching 26. The upper edge or straight portion of the pocket covering is indicated as at 2'7, whereas the downwardly extending flap or shield in back of this covering is shown as at 28. In other respects this embodiment of my invention is substantially similar to the one just described.
I have found the somewhat difierent embodiment of my invention, which is illustrated in Figure 6, especially desirable in the treatment of the ears. In this instance I may employ a single upwardly extending portion 11, arrange the front wall 30, of the pocket 12, of theisame substantial shape as its mating rear wall 31, and provide them with snap members 32, or other fastening devices for permitting their ready separation and instant attaching as desired. I have also found it desirable, in this embodiment of my invention, to increase the length of the pocket 12, that is to say, the extreme ends 33 and 34, would be equi-distant from the center thereof. As previously described, the marginal stitching in addition to securing the several layers of the bandage in their assembled position, will provide the outer dimensions of the pocket 12.
This embodiment of my invention will be found highly advantageous for use in connection with warm or hot packs, where it is desired to employ any of the various heated compounds for effecting the desired result.
The invention is not intended to be necessarily restricted to the particular constructions and arrangements of parts, nor the particular applications of such constructions, herein shown and described, as the same may be modified in various particulars or be applied in many varied relations without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention, practical embodiments herein illustrated and described attempting merely to show some of the various forms and modifications in which the invention might be embodied.
What I claim is:
A bandage comprising a body portion of sheet material folded upon itself and stitched to form spaced medicament carrying pockets, one side wall thereof being supported by a flexible stiffener and having ears adjacent the pocket portions extended above the upper edge of said pockets to engage adjacent parts of the member being treated to prevent shifting or displacement of the bandage, and means for securing said bandage in applied position.
