APPLICATO R.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 634,363, dated October 3, 1899.

Application filed September '7, 1897. Serial No. 650,793. (No model.)

To aZZ whom it may coitcomt:

Be it known that I, WILLIAM A. MORRISON, of Boston, in the county of Suffolk and State of Massachusetts, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Tubes for Packing Gauze into or Irrigating Abdominal or other Wounds, of which the followingis afull, clear, and exact description.

This invention consists of a tube constructed and arranged for use in packing gauze drainage in an abdominal or other wound, or any pus-cavity that requires drainage, to insure the gauze being placed at the bottom of the wound, and also for washing and cleaning out such wound, all substantially as hereinafter fully described, reference being had to the accompanying sheet of drawings, in which is illustrated a tube constructed and arranged for use in accordance with this invention.

Figure 1 is a side view of such tube; Figs. 2 and 3 being cross-sections on lines 2 2 and 3 3, respectively, Fig. 1. Fig. d is a side view of a tube having its lower end curved or bent.

111 the drawings, A represents a tube constructed in accordance with this invention. This tube is made in two longitudinal halves or parts B and O, and on each edge of one half B is a longitudinal rib D, and in each edge of the other half 0 l is a longitudinal groove E, the ribs of the first part fitting in the grooves of the other part, and when the two parts are placed together with the ribs in their respective grooves they make practically a solid tube, and as the ribs and grooves terminate a short distance from the ends of the tube, as at F, the two parts when placed together and held by hand are prevented from moving longitudinally as well as laterally upon one another. The end of each part is so formed, as shown at G, that when the two parts are placed together the tube will be practically closed at such end, While the other end of each part being straight the tube is open at such end.

In the sides of the tube near its lower end are a series of holes or openings H through the thickness of the material.

In the use of this tube, the two parts or sides of the tube being placed together with the ribs in their respective grooves and being so held by hand, the lower end K of the tube is then inserted in the wound and gently pushed therein between the intestines or other parts until the end is in contact with the bottom of the wound orpus-cavity, and as the tube is being pushed into the wound it is given.

a slight rotary motion. Into the open end L of the tube, is then inserted a piece of gauze of the required size, which is gently pushed down to the bottom of the tube with any suitable steel rod or instrument and there held. The two parts of the tube are then separated from each other sufl'iciently for the ends of the parts to be free from each other and the gauze and are then gently withdrawn from the wound with the steel instrument, leaving the gauze in place in the wound for the drainage thereof, which remains there until it is desired to remove it, when it is removed and if necessaryanotherpiece of gauze inserted, as before.

When desirous of using the tube to flush or wash out a wound, the tube is inserted in the wound, as before described, and then a syringe or flushing-tube is inserted in the open end L of the tube, preferably reaching to the bottom of the tube, and the necessary cleansing liquid forced through the holes therein into the wound.

By the use of this tube a gauze for drainage can be quickly, conveniently, and gently inserted into a wound to the bottom thereof without touching the sides of the wound to irritate and injure it unnecessarily.

The tube shown in Fig. 1 is straight; but in Fig. 4c is shown a tube havingits lower end curved or bent, which in some instances is preferable for use on account of its curve, but otherwise the tube is constructed the same as the tube in Fig. 1.

- In the manufacture of the tube for use only for packing gauze drainage the holes H can be dispensed with; but it is well tohave them, as it makes the tube more useful and they do not interfere with the proper packing of the gauze.

The two parts of the tube can be secured together in other ways than by the ribs and grooves, but as described is exceedingly practical; also, a more or less number of holes can be made as desired, and the tube can be made of any suitable metal or material. The

two parts can be secured together in any suitable manner, but as described and shown and held by hand is sufficientand practical.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim is- 1. An instrument for packing gauze in an abdominal or other wound, consisting of a tube constructed of two longitudinal halves or parts adapted to be placed together, the contiguous edges of the two parts having respectively longitudinal ribs and grooves by which the two parts are held from movement longitudinally and laterally, one end of the tube when the parts are together being open, the other ends of the two parts being so constructed that when placed together the end of the tube is closed.

2. An instrument for packing gauze in an abdominal or other wound, consisting of a tube constructed of two longitudinal halves or parts adapted to be placed together and held from movement longitudinally and latorally, one end of the tube when the parts are together being open, the other end constructed to be closed, and such latter end having holes or openings through its sides near such end.

3. An instrument for packing gauze in an abdominal or other wound, consisting of a tube constructed of two longitudinal halves or parts adapted to be placed together, the contiguous edges of the two parts having respectively longitudinal ribs and grooves, by which the two parts are held from movement longitudinally and laterally, one end of the tube when-the parts are'together being open the other end constructed to be closed and such latter end having holes or openings through its sides near such end.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.

WILLIAM- A. MORRISON. lVitnesses:

EDWIN W. BROWN, FLORENCE I. GARRETT
