' Application'January 19, 1953, Serial No. 331,761

4 Claims. (Cl. 128-206) This invention relates to a surgical appliance and more particularly to a nasal adapter for oxygen inhalation.

The primary object of this invention resides in the provision of a device which when used in combination with a cannula can be used to supply oxygen to a patient with a maximum of comfort for the patient.

A further object of this invention resides in the provision of a nasal adapter for use in asso ciation of a cannula which includes means for preventing soreness of the lips and nose due to chafing and escaping oxygen, which adapter may be used and then destroyed or disposed of in view of the extremely inexpensive cost of production of these appliances. This nasal adapter can also be used to receive a nasal catheter and also a gastric tube by inserting such into the apertures provided to receive the cannula, and will provide added comfort to the patient by eliminating the adhesive tape now used to hold the tube in place.

A further object of the invention resides in the provision of a nasal adapter which when used in conjunction with a cannula prevents loss of oxygen and thus decreases the total expenditure of oxygen by a patient.

Still further objects of the invention reside in the provision of a nasal adapter for oxygen inhalation that is strong and durable, simple in construction and manufacture, capable of being used in conjunction with conventional cannulae and which may be manufactured and produced from readily available materials.

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

Figure l is a perspective view of the nasal adapter comprising the present invention;

Figure 2 is a side elevational view of this device;

Figure 3 is a rear elevational view of the nasal adapter showing the manner in which the cannula extends into the body of the device;

Figure 4 is a vertical sectional view as taken along the plane of line 4-4 in Figure 3; and,

Figure 5 is a sectional detail view as taken along the plane of line 5--5 in Figure 2.

With continuing reference to the accompanying drawings wherein like reference numerals designate similar parts throughout the various views, reference numeral [0 generally designates the nasal adapter for oxygen inhalation comprising the present invention. This nasal adapter includes a body l2. The body I2 may be made from any suitable molded or sheet synthetic resinous material having the required characteristics of flexibility and resiliency. The body i2 is shaped and configurated to conform to the contours of a human beings nose and at the upper portions thereof is provided with a slot I4 therein. The body 12 about the slot I4 is provided with a padding of foam rubber IE or of any other suitable soft yet resilient cushioning material. The slot i l together with the pad l6 protects the bridge of the users nose.

Preferably integrally formed with the body 12 is a thickened portion H3 at the base of the body l2. A pair of spaced apertures 20 and 22 extend through the body l2 and through the thickened portion [8 and are interconnected by an arcuate horizontally extending slot 24 in the thickened portion l8. Ribs 26 and 28 are formed on either side of the slot 24 and together with the apertures 20 and 22 receive a cannula 30 and lockingly hold the cannula in position. The cannula 30 is provided with a pair of spaced parallel cylindrical intercommunicating elements 3|. A padding 32 of resilient material such as foam rubber is provided to cushion and protect the upper lip of a patient using this device. A pair of rings 34 and 36 may be provided to permit elastic bands to hold tubes in place during nasal feedings.

Since from the foregoing, the construction and advantages of this nasal adapter are readily apparent, further description is believed to be unnecessary.

However, since numerous modifications will readily occur to those skilled in the art after a consideration of the foregoing specification and accompanying drawings, it is not intended to limit the invention to the precise embodiment shown and described, but all suitable modifications and equivalents may be readily resorted to that fall Within the scope of the appended claims.

What is claimed as new is as follows:

1. A nasal adapter for oxygen inhalation comprising a body, a thickened portion at the base of said body, spaced apertures extending through said thickened portion and through said body, a horizontally arc-uate extending groove in said thickened portion forming a resilient clamping slot joining said apertures, said slot and said apertures lockingly receiving a cannula.

2. A nasal adapter for oxygen inhalation comprising a body, a thickened portion at the base of said body, spaced apertures through said body, a slot in said thickened portion, said slot and said apertures being adapted to receive a cannula, and resilient pads secured to the uppermost and lowermost portions of the interior of said body.

3. A nasal adapter for oxygen inhalation comprising a body of a flexible resilient material shaped to conform to the contours of a human nose, a thickened portion at the base of said body, spaced apertures through said body, a 51st in said thickened portion, said slot and said apertures being adapted to receive 'a cannula, and resilient pads secured to the uppermost and lowermost portions of the interior of said body.

4. A nasal adapter for oxygen inhalation comprising a body, a thickened portion at the base of said body, spaced apertures extending through said thickened portion and through said body, a horizontally arcuate extending groove in said thickened portion forming a resilient clamping slot joining said apertures, said slot and said apertures lockingly receiving a cannula, and resilient pads secured to the uppermost and lowermost portions of the interior of said body.
