Abstract

Apparatus for holding a blood bag and causing the blood to be fed comprising an open boxlike member having a wall and a movable piston inside the boxlike member in operative relation with the wall. Mechanical means is secured to the piston to retract it from the wall and thus to provide a space in which a blood bag can be positioned and held in place by the piston. Retraction of the piston puts it under spring pressure which causes it to apply pressure to the blood bag and thus to force blood out of the bag gradually and constantly until the bag is empty.

INVENTOE. YWALTEA J. J/NOTT/ ATTORNEY FIG. 2-

sLoon-ritorusmc APPARATUS BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION At the present time, one type of apparatus for handling a blood bag and feeding blood therefrom includes an inflatable sleeve which is placed around the bag and inflated to apply pressure to the bag and thus to force the blood therefrom. However, the pressure is relatively low, about 300 mm. Hg, and the sleeve must be reinflated in the middle of the operation. These factors are undesirable.

Another type of apparatus uses a C cartridge to apply pressure to the blood bag; however, the operation of this apparatus is too slow and again the pressure is too low, also about 300 mm. Hg.

DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING FIG. 1 is a perspective view of apparatus embodying the invention;

FIG. 2 is a sectional elevational view of the apparatus of FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is similar to FIG. 2 showing the apparatus at another stage in its operation; and

FIG. 4 is a sectional elevational view of a portion of the invention at one stage in its operation.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENT The apparatus of the invention includes a generally boxlike frame 20 having a front wall 30, a rear wall 40 and two sidewalls 50 and 60. The ends of the frame are open at top and bottom. The frame 20 is preferably made of a light, thermally conductive material such as aluminum, or some other metal. If heat conduction is not required, the frame might be made of plastic. A movable piston 70, also made of aluminum, plastic or the like and generally the same size as the front wall 30 of the frame is placed inside the frame abutting the front wall.

The piston 70 has a front wall 30 which abuts the front wall 30 of the frame and a rear wall 90. At about the center ofthe rear wall 90 of the piston 70 is secured, for example by welding, a threaded nut 100, and a threaded shaft 110 is secured to the threaded nut 100 and held in place by a lock nut 120. The shaft 110 extend rearwardly through a hole 130 in the rear wall 40 at about its center. The hole 130 is 'sufficiently large so that the shaft lll) can move about so that the flat piston secured thereto can be oriented at different angles with respect to the front wall. The threaded shaft 110 extends a suitable distance out of the frame, and its free end carries a handle 140 which has a hub 150 mounted on the shaft 110. A relatively short portion 160 of the hub, near the end 162 adjacent to wall 40, is threaded internally, and this engages the threaded shaft 116. The end 162 of the hub bears against rear wall 40 during one stage of the operation of the apparatus. The end of the threaded shaft inside the handle hub carries a washer or disc 170 which is of sufficient diameter that the handle cannot be completely removed from the shaft. In addition, considering the apparatus 10 when it is inoperative and piston 70 abuts wall 30 as shown in FIG. 2, the end of the shaft 110 within the handle hub includes a portion 112 (FIG. 4) which is threaded and engages the threaded portion 150 of the hub. Between portion 112 and washer 170, the shaft 110 includes a smaller-diameter, unthreaded portion. 114 onto which the handle hub can be moved in order to, in effect, disengage the handle from the shaft. This disengagement permits the handle to float free with respect to the shaft. This is done so that the shaft can move into the frame during the operation, to be described.

If desired, washer 170 might be omitted so that the handle might be removed completely from the shaft. In addition, the shaft need not be threaded all the way to its inner end secured to piston 70.

A spring 180 of suitable size and strength is mounted on the threaded shaft llll inside the frame between the rear wall 40 and piston 70.

LII

A carrying handle is provided for the frame, and one suitable handle comprises a metal strip 190 secured between the top edges of the two sidewalls 50 and 60. The handle 190 is used to suspend the apparatus 10 during operation.

In operation of the apparatus 10, initially, the piston 70 is inside the frame as far as it will go and in contact with the front wall 30. The spring 180 at this time is expanded to its fullest extent and is generally not under compression. The handle is then rotated in the proper direction to draw the threaded shaft 110 into the hub of the handle and thus to retract the piston 70 from the front wall 30. This operation puts the spring 180 under compression. When a suitable space or chamber is provided (FIG. 3) between the piston and the front wall inside the frame, a blood bag 198 is inserted and held in place by hand, for example, and the handle is rotated in the opposite direction to disconnect it from the shaft as in FIG. 4. If washer is not present, the handle is completely removed. Now, with the blood bag suitably coupled to a patient, and under the pressure of the spring 180, the piston 70 is forced against the bag under spring pressure, and the blood is forced from the bag. The piston bears against the bag constantly and uniformly and is moved toward the front wall until the bag is emptied. It is clear that the free end of the shaft 110 which extends out of the housing through wall 40 may be of sufficient length so that the handle 140 can be rotated away from wall 40 and the shaft 110 can be released to start a fluidfeeding operation without being disconnected from the handle as illustrated in FIG. 4. In this case, the handle need only be threaded away from the wall 40 a distance at least as great as the distance through which the plate 70 must travel toward wall 30 to completely empty the bag 198. The dimensions of the parts as shown in FIG. 3 would appear to be suitable to permit this mode of operation.

The apparatus of the invention can be used to dispense blood at an elevated temperature, for example body temperature, by means of an electric heating element 200 secured to the outer front surface of the front wall by clips, screws, or by any suitable means. The heating element would include the usual power cord which could be connected to a power outlet, or it might be battery operated.

The invention has many advantages as follows:

1. By suitable selection of the spring mounted on the shaft, pressure as high as 800 mm. Hg can be readily achieved.

2. The apparatus is light, of the order of 2%pounds, so that it can be handled easily by a nurse.

3. A patient can be moved while the apparatus is coupled to him since it is self-contained.

4. Warm blood can be dispensed.

5. The apparatus is completely mechanical and will last indefinitely.
