ENDOTRACHEAL CATHETER Filed Aug. 6, 1964 INVNTOR Frz HU 1 n BY @4CHJ v @wr ATTORNEYS United States Patent O 3,363,629 ENDOTRACHEAL CATHETER Franz Kuhn, Offenbach am Main, Germany, assignor to Firma Willy Rusch, Rommelshausen, Wurtternberg- Baden, Germany Filed Aug. 6, 1964, Ser. No. 387,846 Claims priority, application Germany, Aug. 17, 1963, R 35,926 11 Claims. (Cl. 12S-351) The invention relates to an endotracheal catheter for anaesthetic administration.

Known endotracheal catheters consist of a tube which is curved throughout, the two ends including an angle of about 120. A further known catheter of this type, the so-called Oxford catheter, has a comparatively great curvature which extends over about a quarter of a circle. Two elongated straight sections extend from the curved part. Also flexible endotracheal catheters are known which embody a wire spiral and are straight in the natural condition.

Damage to the vocal cavity could not previously be avoided with any of the known catheters. Since all these catheters do not lie smoothly in the trachea, laryngeal cramp, spasms of the windpipe and breathing difficulties can often not be avoided as a result of the pressure exerted at specific points by the catheter. Also the abovementioned known highly exible catheter does not prevent the aforesaid damage since these catheters press with a certain pressure on the trachea as a result of their elastic stressing.

The invention is directed to the problem of developing an endotracheal catheter in which such difficulties or damage are reliably avoided.

The invention comprises an endotracheal catheter which is of S-shape, that is commencing from the outer end, it has an approximately straight section followed by a first curved part with a radius of curvature of about 50 to 75 mm. over an arc range 4of 80 to 90 (included angle), this being followed by a straight section about 20 to 45 mm. long and after this a second curved section the curvature of which runs oppositely to the aforesaid curvature and extends at a curvature radius of between 75 and 95 mm. over an arc range of 35 to 50.

The particular advantage of the invention lies in the fact that this catheter adapts itself well to the course of the trachea and nevertheless can be introduced comparatively easily and without damage into the trachea. Experiments have shown that with this catheter the complications normally to be expected, such as for example damage to the vocal cavity, laryngeal cramp, spasms of the windpipe, pressure points on the trachea or the like, are prevented and that the instrument can be satisfactorily introduced despite its curved form.

The invention is not limited to the curvatures following exact circular arcs; the invention should rather extend to those catheters in which the curvature only more or less approaches such arc forms, that is that the radius of curvature is not constant over the whole arc. In particular in the region of the transfer points from one curvature to another (or to a straight section) the radius of curvature of the two adjacent sections is progressively increased to provide a smooth transition.

Preferably the catheter is proportioned differently for male and female patients. For example, with a catheter for a male patient the rst curvature is somewhat greater than the curvature for a lcatheter for female patients, whereas the second curvature is somewhat flatter, that is to say, the centre angle of the curvature is somewhat smaller than with the catheter for female patients.

The catheter according to the invention may embody at its inner end a bulb in known manner.

3,363,629 Patented Jan. 16, 1968 Further features of the invention will be apparent from the following description of one embodiment of the invention, together with the claims and the accompanying drawing and the individual features can be used on their own -or several of them may be utilized in one embodiment of the invention.

In the embodiment shown the catheter tube of the endotracheal catheter is pre-shaped and is of S-form. An initial straight section provides the outer end of the catheter and can be of desired length; following this there is provided a first curved section 2 the radius of curvature 3 of which is about 50 to 75 mm. The arc curvature angle is between 80 to 95, that is the central angle 4 amounts to about between 80 and 90. The lirst curved section 2 is followed by a straight section which can be 25 to 45 mm. long. To the section 5 there is provided a second curved section 6 which has a curvature opposite to that of the rst curved section 2 and is co-planar with the first curved section. The radius of curvature 7 amounts to between and 95 mm. and the curved arc extends over 30 to 50, i.e. the central angle 8 amounts to 30 to 50.

The catheter tube is cut off obliquely at its inner end and embodies a bulb 9 which is connected to a control bulb 11 through a tube 10 extending externally of the catheter tube and fastened to it.

In an embodiment of the endotracheal catheter suitable for a male patient the radius of curvature of the first curve is between 50 and 60 mm. long, for example 55 mm., and the centre angle 4 is between 84 and 88 for example 86. The intermediate straight section 5 is about 25 mm. long in this embodiment of the invention. The second curved section 6 has in this embodiment of the invention a radius of curvature 7 between 85 and 95 mm., for example 9() mm., and the central angle 8 of this curvature lies between 35 and 40 for example 37.

In another embodiment of the endotracheal catheter according to the invention suitable for female patients, the radius of curvature of the first curve is between 65 and 75 mm. on the average, for example 70 mm., and the central angle 4 is between 80 and 85 lfor example 82. The intermediate section 5 can be about 25 mm. long. The radius of curvature of the second curve is between 75 and 85 mm., for example in the average case mm., and the centre angle 8 lies between 45 and 50 for example 48.

The catheter can consist of rubber or a suitable synthetic material, for example plasticised PVC or silicone rubber. It can be made comparatively stiff since it lits well to the course .of the trachea.
