1 Claim.
This invention relates to improvements in containers for medicinal preparations such as inhalants, which are used in the treatment of head colds, sinus infections, hay fever and the like,
and it is an object of the invention to provide a container of this character with improved closure means including a nozzle or nose piece and an associated vent tube together with stopper means for simultaneously closing the nozzle or nose piece and the open end of the vent tube to permit the container to be readily transferred from place to place, or stored in positions other than the vertical, without permitting the escape from the container of the liquid medicinal preparations held thereby.
It is a further object of the invention to provide an efilcient container of this character of practical construction and which may be manufactured at low cost.
With these and other objects in view, which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention consists in the novel features of construction, combination of elements and arrangements of parts hereinafter fully described and pointed out in the appended claim.
In the accompanying drawing:
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of an inhalant container formed in accordance with the present invention;
Fig. 2 is a detail perspective view of the stopper member which is adapted to be separably carried by the nozzle or nose piece of the container;
Fig. 3 is a vertical longitudinal sectional view taken through the container with the stopper member removed;
Fig. 4 is a similar view disclosing the stopper member in its applied position on the container and sealing the open ends of the nozzle or nose piece and the vent or aspirating tube.
Referring more particularly to the drawing, the numeral I designates my improved inhalant container in its entirety. In its preferred form, the container comprises a bottle-shaped body 2, which may be formed of glass or other suitable material and which is adapted to contain a liquid preparation in the form of a medicated and volatile oil. The neck 3 of the body 2 includes exterior threads which are adapted for the reception of a threaded metallic ring 4 which empressible rubber closure 1. By tightening the ring 4 upon the threads of the neck 3, the closure 1 will be securely retained in frictional clamped engagement with the open neck of the bottle. 5
Carried by the closure 1 is a nose piece or nozzle 8 which may be formed from molded hard rubber or other suitable and preferably composition material. The lower portion of this nose piece or nozzle is formed with threads 9 which 10 serve to unite the nose piece in secured relationship with the closure l. The nose piece is provided with a passage I0 extending therethrough from one end to the other and through which the vapors of the liquid contained in the bottle 5 are adapted to pass. Midway of its length, the nose piece may be provided with threads H for the reception of a stopper member I2, which may also be formed from hard rubber or its equivalent. This stopper member is in the form of 20 an inverted cup and includes a closed upper end IS, a chamber M of such size as to receive the nozzle or nose piece 8 and the lower open end of the stopper member is provided with an outturned annular flange [5, which when the stop- 5 per member is threaded in a position of closure on the nose piece, will engage with the upper surface of the closure member I and at its perimeter with the inner terminating portions of the ring flange 5. The seating flange l5 of the stop- 30 per member is also arranged when in a seated position to cover the open upper end of a vent or aspirating tube l6. This tube is carried by the closure member I and extends downwardly into the bottle 2, terminating a short distance 35 above the bottom of the bottle.
In the use of the container, the stopper member is removed, as shown in Fig. 1, so that the .user of the bottle may place the nostrils close to the upper end of the nose piece 8. Then, by forceful or positive breathing, air is drawn from the atmosphere and passed through the tube I6 permeating the body of liquid contained in the bottle, and producing vapors thereof which are drawn through the nose piece 8 and thence into the nasal passages of the patient or user. When the container is not in use, the stopper member is applied as shown in Fig. 4, so that the open upper end of the nose piece is closed by the upper portion of the stopper member, and likewise the tube l5 has its upper end closed through cooperation with the seating flange |5 of the stopper member, the latter thus serving in the dual capacity of simultaneously closing both of the outlets of the container. This permits the container to be carried readily from place to place or storing, for instance, with luggage, without leakage or spilling of its liquid contents.
While I have described what I consider to be the preferred form of the present invention, nevertheless it will be understood that the latter is subject to an appreciable modification without departing from the scope of the invention as the latter has been defined in the following claim.
What is claimed is;
An inhalant dispenser comprising a receptacle provided with an open neck portion, a closure of compressible material seated upon said neck,
a ring threaded on the outer side of said'receptacle for retaining said closure in secured relationship with the neck portion of the receptacle, a nose piece carried by said closure and extend-. Y
ing upwardly therefrom, said nose piece being formed from a material possessing greater rigidity than said closure, the lower end of said nose piece being received within an opening provided centrally in said closure, said nose piece being formed with a passageway extending longitudinally therethrough from end to end, the ends of said passageway being of restricted diameter as compared with the intermediate portions thereof, an open-endedaspirating tube carried by said closure and extending into said receptacle, and a stopper member separably connected with said 1 11056 piece and arranged when in a seated position to simultaneously close the open upper end of the passageway in said nose piece and the open upper end of the aspirating tube.
