Description

May 28, 1963 F. s. BUONO DISPOSABLE URINARY DRAINAGE BAG ASSEMBLY Filed Aug. 1'7, 1962 'll, III II. I! ill I A i 3 l I I INVENTOR. F/Qfl/VK e5. BUG/V0 14, JM Mm fiTTOE/VE'YS u i i 3,690,958 Patented May 28, 1963 This invention relates to an improved urinary drainage bag assembly and, more particularly, to an improved hanger for a disposable urinary drainage bag.

It is an object of the present invention to provide an improved hanger particularly suitable for use in supporting a disposable urinary drainage bag at the side of a hospital bed or in some other suitable location and which is of improved construction so that it may be readily assembled with and disassembled from the drainage bag.

A further object is the provision of an improved hanger for urinary drainage bags of the above character having an improved arrangement for guiding the drainage tube into the drainage bag so that there is no interference between the hanger and drainage tube and so that the drainage tube will properly drain into the bag.

My invention contemplates the provision of an improved hanger for a disposable urinary drainage bag in the form of a wireframe having transverse supporting and hanger bars interconnected by side members and having a bracket mounted on the Wire frame adjacent one side thereof and extending downwardly at a laterally inclined angle and terminating in a similarly inclined U-shaped drainage tube guide below the hanger bar.

In the accompanying drawing FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a urinary drainage bag assembly having a hanger embodying my invention;

FIG. 2 is a longitudinal sectional view in the direction of the arrows on the line 22 of FIG. 1; and

FIG. 3 is a cross sectional view in the direction of th arrows on the line 3-3 of FIG. 1.

In the drawing I have shown a urinary drainage bag suitably supported on my improved hanger 12 which in turn is supported from the rail 14 of a hospital bed. A drainage tube 16 leading from the patient in the bed is supported by the guide bracket mounted on the hanger in such a manner as not to interfere therewith and so as to discharge into the drainage bag 10.

The drainage bag 10 may be of any desired type having a tubular culf or hem at the upper end thereof so as to be supportable by the hanger. In the accompanying drawing I have shown one type of disposable urinary drainage bag made of a suitable, transparent, flexible plastic material which is inert to the contents thereof. For this purpose I have found that sheet plastic material made of polyethylene, polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride or its copolymers serves very satisfactorily. The bag is made of two layers of plastic sheet material which may be integrally connected together at its lower and upper ends as shown at 18 and 20 and is heat sealed adjacent its side edges 22 and 24; The heat seal 22 extends from the bottom of the bag to a point adjacent the top edge of the bag where it meets a transverse heat seal 26 extending across the bag a short distance from the connected top edge 20 thus forming a tubular hem or cuff through which a portion of the hanger may extend to support the bag.

The heat seal 24 extends from the lower edge of the bag to a short distance from the transverse seal 26 leaving an opening 28 through which the drainage tube 16 may be inserted into the bag and through which the bag may be subsequently emptied if desired.

My improved hanger 12 is preferably in the form of a frame made of metal wire. The metal wire is preferably of a type which is resilient and which is corrosion-resistant so as to be unaffected by the material to be drained into the bag. For this purpose I have found that stainless steel, nickel plated or vinyl coated steel, copper-nickel alloy and marine bronze serve satisfactorily.

The wire frame comprises generally a supporting bar 30 extending transversely of the upper portion of the hanger and preferably having integral eyes or loops 32 formed by twisting the wire of the supporting bar upon itself. The wire frame is also provided with a hanger bar 34 of greater length than the supporting bar 30 and extending transversely of the lower portion of the wire frame parallel to and in alignment with the supporting bar. A first side member 36 is integrally connected between one end of the supporting bar and hanger bar and is disposed at an outwardly inclined angle. A second side member 38 is integrally connected to the other'end of supporting bar 30 and extends downwardly at an outwardly inclined angle terminating in a laterally-projecting upwardly facing U-shaped hook 40. The U-shaped hook 40 on side member 38 is releasably engageable with the other end of the hanger bar 34 which has a complementary shaped, curved portion as shown most clearly in FIG. 1.

The hanger is assembled with the drainage bag 10' by releasing the hanger bar 34 from the hook-shaped catch 40 and inserting the hanger bar through the tubular hem or cuff formed at the upper end of the drainage bag. The end of hanger bar 34 is then engaged with the hookshaped catch as shown in FIG. 1.

The hanger may be supported in a suitable manner as from a bedrail 14 by means of a hanger cord such as shown at 42 which is extended through the two eyes 32 and secured together in endless fashion. One portion of the hanger cord may be extended through the aperture in the hanger, hook or clip 44 and the other portion of the hanger cord may be extended around the bed rail as shown and engaged with a hook on the end of the clip. The cord can then be adjusted so that the drainage bag is suspended in horizontal fashion. If desired, the hanger cord may simply be suspended from a suitable projection such as a hook or rod.

I also preferably provide a suitable bracket formed with a guide for the drainage tube preferably arranged so that the hanger will not interfere with the drainage tube and so that liquid is free to readily drain through the tube into the bag.

For this purpose I provide a bracket 46 made of wire and secured to the first side member 36 and the hanger 34 at a position near the side or end of the hanger. The bracket depends downwardly at an outwardly inclined angle and terminates in a similarly inclined U-shaped drainage tube guide 48 positioned below the hanger bar. The wire bracket as shown is made of an elongated strip of wire folded upon itself so as to provide two spaced parallel-wire members connected together at the free end thereof. The U-shaped guide 48 is of a size to accommodate and hold in place a drainage tube 16. The spacing between the Wire members is such that an elastic washer or collar 50 assembled around the drainage tube 16 and preferably bonded thereto can be accommodated between the two wire members in the guide as shown. The washer fits snugly around the drainage tube, and it serves to properly position the drainage tube in the guide and also serves as a stop to prevent accidental withdrawal of the drainage tube from the drainage bag.

In using my improved hanger for disposable urinary drainage bags I first release the free end of hanger bar 34 from interengagement with the catch 40 and assemble the tubular seam or cult of a disposable drainage bag over the'hanger bar. I then interengage the free end of the hanger bar with the catch 40 as shown in FIG. 1. The assembly is then suspended in a suitable position as from the rail of a hospital bed by eXtending the hanger cord 42 around the rail of the bed and engaging it with the hook of the clip 44. The assembly is then adjusted so that the drainage bag is suspended in substantially hori zontalposition.

The drainage tube 16 which is suitably connected to the patient is extended into the opening 28- in the drainage bag and engaged in the drainange tube guide 48 in the manner shown with the collar 50 positioned between the two wire members of the guide bracket.

It will thus be seen that the drainage tube can be assembled with the bag without any interference from the hanger and that the fluid is free to drain through the tube without any obstruction.

At suitable intervals the disposable drainage bag is removed and replaced with a new bag. The bag may be forwarded to the laboratory for suitable tests on the material drained therein. Under any circumstances the bag need not be cleaned and sterilized, for reuse, but can be discarded.

It will thus be seen that I have provided an improved urinary drainage bag assembly having an improved hanger that can be readily assembled with and disassembled from disposable drainage bags; which can be readily suspended in a suitable position as from a hospital bed; and which is provided with an improved guide bracket for retaining and guiding a drainage tube without interference with the hanger and so that the fluid may readily drain therethrough into the drainage bag.

Modifications may be made in the illustrated and described embodiment of my invention without departing from the invention as set forth in the accompanying claims.
