Description

Dec. 17, 1935. H, B. VEYSEY SURGICAL BANDAGE Filed Jan. 10, 1935 mu/z/v 70R H8 VZYSEX Patented Dec. 17, .1935

PATENT. OFFICE SURGICAL BANDAGE Helen Beatrice Veysey, Woodstock, Ontario, Canada Application January 10, 1935, Serial No. 1,081

2 Claims.

My invention relates to improvements in surgical bandages, and the object of the invention is to devise a bandage which may be quickly placed in position over a surgical dressing covering the wound to securely and comfortably hold the same in place and which, at the sametime, will be light and neat in appearance and which will adhere closely to the flesh to prevent the entrance into or escape of matter from the wound and which will obviate the use of long and heavy head bandaging which becomes hot and uncomfortable, takes considerable time and skill to apply and, if not carefully applied, will not hold the dressing firmly and comfortably in place over the wound, and it consists essentially of a cap, or cover, shaped to contain the dressing covering the wound, and to fit around its edges closely to the flesh around the edge'of the dressing, and an elastic band adjustable in length and det-achably connected at its ends to opposite ends of the dressing cover and in such a way that the draw is adjustable to adapt it to hold the cover in various positions according to the position of the wound on the head of the patient as hereinafter more particularly explained in the following specification.

. In the drawing like characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in each figure. In all the forms used whether for a mastoid,

cheek, jaw, chin, nose, eye or ear wound I provide a dressing cover 1 made preferably of fine white cotton material. One end of each cover is formed by a transverse straight edge l from 3: the ends of which extend the ends of a tension yoke 2 formed of fabric such as tape or any other suitable flexible material. The yoke 2 has a longitudinal draw on the longitudinal edges of the cover when under tension leaving the inter- 5, mediate fabric slack over the dressing, the ends of the yoke tending to draw together. The other end in the form shown in Figs. 3, 7, 10, 19 and 21 is formed into more or less of a point by the converging of the longitudinal edges of the cover at 30 that end as indicated at I", such end being provided with a metal eye I adjacent its extremity. In the forms shown in detail in Figs. 13 and 16 for chin and nose injuries, both end edges extend transversely in a straight line as indicated 3:, at I and 2 in these figures and the edge 2 is also provided with a similar tension yoke 3.

In order that each cover piece may be shaped to fit the particular part of the head to which it is applied I form suitably positioned pleats and 40 darts. V

In the form shown in detail in Fig. 3 adapted to a mastoid wound, I provide a pleat 4 in its upper transverse edge I and a pleat 4 extending from its rear edge 4. In the form shown in de- 45 tail in Fig. 7 adapted for cheek wounds, I provide pleats 5 and 6 extending from the transverse end edge I of this figure and a pleat 1 extending from the rear longitudinal edge I of the cover piece. In the form shown in detail in Fig. 10 adapted to 50 jaw wounds, I form an end pleat 8 in the transverse edge I pleats 9 and II) in the rear edge andpleats l l and I2 in the front edge. In the form shown in detail in Fig. 13 adapted for chin wounds, each transverse edge l and l is provided with a centre dart i4 and side darts l5 and I6 and the lower edge with a centre dart II. In the form shown in detail in Fig. 16 each end transverse edge is provided with a centre dart l8 and each longitudinal edge with a centre dart I9. In the form shown in detail in Fig. 19 adapted for eye injuries the transverse straight edge l is provided with a centre pleat 2| and side pleats 22 and 23 and the end H with a centre pleat 24 and the longitudinal edges with centre transverse pleats 25 and 26. In the form shown in detail in Fig. 21 adapted for ear injuries, longitudinal darts 21 extend from each end of the cover piece and a transverse dart 28 from each longitudinal edge of the cover piece.

The cover piece support consists of a belt or band 29 shown in detail in Figs. 22 and 23 and formed of elastic material. One end of the band is formed into a loop as indicated at 30, the free end 30 being secured to the cross bar 3| of the buckle 3| slidable upon the band as indicated particularly in Fig. 23. 32 is a hook provided with a slotted eye 32 through which the band is slidable. Adjacent the opposite end the band is bent back upon itself to form a reinforcement at 29 in which portion is secured a ring 33. The extreme end 29 of the band is provided with a hook 34, the end 29 being looped up and connected to the ring 33 by the hook 34.

When the dressing cover piece is in position the band 29 is passed over the head, the hook 32 engaging either the eye I of Figs. 3, 7, 10, 19 and 21 or the yoke 3 of Figs. 13 and 16 and the looped portion 29 passing through the loops 2 at the opposite end of the cover piece. 29 is an endless elastic band surrounding the head and extending over the band 29 at each side of the head servwith a centre dart l 3, the upper longitudinal edge yokes 2 and 3 the draw of the elastic support may be adjusted to the best position for holding the cover I firmly in place, which will be light, cool and comfortable covering only the dressing and the surrounding flesh immediately adjacent thereto, which may be adjusted to fit any size of head, from which the dressing cover may be detached for the quick removal and replacement of the dressing and Without the removal of the dressing supports from the head of the patient, which may i be quickly applied so as not to tax the endurance of the patient and result in unnecessary loss of time to the doctors and nurses.

Although I have described my device in connection with mastoid, cheek, jaw, chin, nose, eye and ear injuries, these are only examples of the various applications together with its support for which it is suitable such as the top of the head, neck or back of the head or, in fact, any part to which a bandage is to be applied.

What I claim as my invention is:

1. In a surgical bandage, the combination with a dressing cover comprising a body formed to fit over the dressing and at its edge the flesh of that part of the patient to which it is applied, a fabric loop at one end of the cover and an eye at the opposite end, of a dressing cover support comprising an elastic band extending around the head of the patient, a hook at one end of the support engaging the eye of the cover, a hook at the opposite end of the support, and a ring securedto the band and spaced from the hook and engaged thereby after passing through the loop of the cover.

2. In a surgical bandage, the combination with a dressing cover comprising a body formed to fit over the dressing and at its edges the flesh of that part of the patient to which it is applied, a fabric yoke at one end of the cover and an attaching means at the opposite end, of a dressing cover support comprising an elastic ban-d extending around the head of the patient and secured at one end to the attaching means, a hook at the opposite end of the elastic band, and a ring secured to the band and spaced from the hook and engaged thereby after passing through the loop of the cover.
