Description

July 17, 1951 c. SCARKINO BABY MOUTH WASHER Filed Feb. 24, 1950 Carl .Scar/u'no IN V EN TOR.

Patented July 17, 1951 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE 2,560,746 BABY MOUTH WASHER Carl Scarkino, Kenner, La. Application February 24, 1950, Serial No. 145,980 4 Claims. (Cl. 128-232) This invention relates to a mouth spray syringe especially adapted for use with infants and children.

The primary object of this inventionis to provide a mouth washer for spraying an antiseptic or germicidal solution into the mouth of an infant or child in such a manner that the solution will effectively strike the entire inner surface of the mouth without any possibility of causing strangulation of the infant or child.

A further object of this invention is to provide a mouth spraying syringe which is relatively simple in design and construction and which is extremely easy to operate both for filling the device and for delivering a sprayed germicidal solution to the mouth.

Yet another object of this invention is to provide a mouth spray syringe comprising an aspirating bulb for retaining a germicidal fluid, a tube secured upon and extending at its lower end into said bulb, a cup vertically adjustable upon said tube, and a spraying head on the upper end of said tube adapted to be received in the mouth.

These, together with various ancillary objects and features of the invention which will later become apparent as the following description proceeds, are attained by the device, a preferred embodiment of which has been illustrated by way of example only in the accompanying drawings, wherein:

Figure 1 is a perspective view of the device shown employed for spraying the mouth of a child;

Figure 2 is a longitudinal sectional view through the device; and

Figure 3 is a sectional view taken substantially in the plane of section line 33 of Figure 2.

Specific reference is now made to the drawings. In the several views in the accompanying drawings and in the following specification similar reference characters indicate corresponding elements throughout.

The mouth syringe of the present invention is generally indicated at I and includes a rubber aspirating bulb I2 for retaining any desired germicidal 0r antiseptic solution I4. A rubber or plastic tube I6 is provided having spaced beads I8 for removably attaching the tube to the aspirating bulb I2 with the lower end 20 of the tube extending into the bulb as shown clearly in Figure 2.

Mounted for vertical adjustment on the tube I6 is a spray-receiving cup 22 which is preferably fabricated of rubber, said cup having an aperture 24 through the bottom end thereof and a bead 26 about the aperture, the tube I6 being received in the aperture and extending axially through the cup. The cup 22 may be pushed upwardly or downwardly on the tube I6 relative to the bulb and includes a metallic resilient insert 28 in the walls thereof adjacent the aperture 24 and extending partially into the bead 26, said insert normally urging the cup to positive [gripping engagement with the outer Wall of the tube I6.

Secured or pressed into the upper end 33 of the tube is a circular plate 32 having a plurality of circumferentially spaced apertures or bores 34 therethrough. A convex, preferably plastic, bafile cap 36 is positioned on the upper end of the tube I6 and is secured to the plate 32 by means of a recess screw 38. The undersurface of the baffle cap 36 is provided with a plurality of concave recesses 40 which overlie the apertures or bores 34 provided in the plate 32. The plate 32 with its apertures 34 together with baffle cap 36 and its concave recesses 48 all constitute a spraying head.

In practical use, the syringe is inverted and the spraying head immersed in a container having a desired germicidal solution. Compression and release of the aspirating bulb I2 will cause the fluid to be sucked through the tube I6 and fill the aspirating bulb. Thereafter, the syringe is held in the position shown in Figures 1 and 2 and the cup 22 is adjusted upon the tube It to a position adjacent the mouth of the child. The spray head is then inserted within the mouth as shown in Figure 1 and a compression of the aspirating bulb I 2 will cause germicidal fluid to pass upwardly through the tube I6 and through the apertures 34 to strike the concave recesses 46 and to spread to all portions of the mouth in the manner shown in dotted lines in Figure 2. Because of the apertures or bores 34 in the plate 32, the injection of a large volume of fluid directly into the mouth will be avoided inasmuch as a spray will be produced, and because of the size of the baffle cap 36 and the concavity of the recesses 40, the fluid Will not be injected in large spurts directly into the throat thus avoiding any possible strangulation of the infant or child.

In view of the foregoing description taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings it is believed that a clear understanding of the de' vice will be quite apparent to those skilled in this art. A more detailed description is accordingly deemed unnecessary.

It is to be understood, however, that even though there is herein shown and described a preferred embodiment of the invention the same is susceptible to certain changes fully comprew 3 hended by the spirit of the invention as herein described and by the scope of the appended claims.

Having described the'invention, what is claimed as new is:

1. A mouth spray syringe comprising an aspirating bulb for retaining a germicidal fluid, a tube secured upon and extending at its lower end into said bulb, a spray-receiving cup vertically adjustable upon said tube, and a spraying head on the upper end of said tube adapted to be received in the mouth, said cup having a bottom end and an open upper end of larger diameter than said bottom end, said upper end being disposed towards said spraying head.

2. A month spray syringe comprising an aspirating bulb for retaining a germicidal fluid, a,

tube secured upon and extending at its lower end into said bulb, a cup vertically adjustable upon said tube, and a spraying head on the upper end of said tube adapted to be received in the mouth, said cup being made of rubber and including an aperture through its bottom end receiving said tube, the walls of said cup including a resilient insert adjacent said aperture urging the bottom 4 of said clip into positive engagement with said tube.

3. The combination of claim 1 wherein said spraying head includes an apertured plate secured in the upper end of said tube, a convex bafiie cap having concave recesses in one face thereof, and a pin fastening said bafiie cap to said plate with the recesses overlying said apertures provided in said plate.

4. The combination of claim 3 wherein said cup is made of rubber and includes an aperture through its bottom end receiving said tube, the Walls of said cup including a resilient insert adjacent said aperture urging the bottom of said cup into positive engagement with said tube.

CARL SCARKINO.
