EDWARD JOHN LAMPORT, OF CAPE TOWN, CAPE COLONY.

NASAL DOUCHE.

Specication of Letters Patent.

Patented July 2, 1907.

Application tiled August l0, 1906. Serial No. 329,999.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, EDWARD JOHN LAMPO-RT, a citizen of the United States, and a resident oi Cape Town, Cape Colony, South Africa, have invented a new and Improved Nasal Douche,v of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

vvThe purpose of the invention is to provide a Very durable, effective and reliable construction oi a nasal douche and one which will also be simple and economic.

Another purpose of the invention is to so construct the douche that it will operate simultaneously upon both nostrils, and whereby the flow oi liquid to the outlet will be automatic and constant until cut off, and also to provide means for regulating said iiow of liquid.

The invention consists in the novel construction and combination of the several parts, as will be hereinalter ully set forth and pointed out in the claims.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying draW- ings forming a part oi this specification, in which similar characters oi reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.

Figure 1 is a front elevation of the improved device; Fig. 2 is a sectional side elevation of the douche; and Fig. 3 is a longitudinal section taken practically on the line 3 3 o Fig. 2.

A represents a container in which the liquid is placed. This container is usually in the form oi a bottle, having a neck a, into which neck the upper end of a body or conducting tube 10 is screwed, or otherwise secured. The said tube 10 is enlarged at its lower end to form a flat tapering head 11, in which head three channels 12, 13 and 14 are produced, the channels l2 and 13 being outer channels and the channel 14 a central channel. All of the channels 12, 13 and 14 connect with each other at their upper ends and with the interior of the body or conducting tube 10.

A needle valve 15 is tted to turn in the central channel 14, and when the said valve is moved upl ward so as to bring its inner pointed end into the lower portion of the single opening in the body tube 10 as is shown in Fig. 3, all communication between the direct opening or door oi the body tube and the channels 12 and 13 is cut off. The flow of liquidto the channels 12 and 13 can be controlled at will by moving the needle valve 15 outward to more or less open the said channels 12 and 13 at their inner ends. The outer ends oi the said channels 12, 13 and lil'are suitably spaced, and the shank 16 ofthe said valve 15 is provided with an exterior threaded portion 17 which is screwed into the correspondingly threaded lower portion of the channel 14, and the valve stem 16 is provided with a suitable knob 18 at its lower end.

Two U-shaped nozzles 19 and 20 are employed, the

inner end of one nozzle being screwed or otherwise removably introduced into the channel 12 in the head 11, While the other nozzle is introduced into the Channel 13, both of the tubes being passed into the head .11 from its bottom portion. The nozzles 19 and 20 are 'brought close enough together to permit the outlet endsoi said nozzles to be brought one in engagement with each nostril, and a valve stem 18 is between the said tubes, so that the Valve can be conveniently operated.

Each nozzle at its outlet end is provided With an elongated preferably oval button 21, the upper surfaces 22 of which buttons are more or less convexed, as is shown in Figs. 1 and 2, so as to readily accommodate the outlet ends of the nozzles to the.nostrils, and each button is provided with an opening extending through the same where the button is connected with the nozzle.

Since the container is located some distance above the outlet, when the needle valve 15 is opened the flow of liquid to the nostrils will be automatic and continuous and in quantity regulated by the aforesaid valve.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent,-

1. A nasal douche, consisting of a container, a conducting tube connected with the bottom of the container, twin nozzles of non-liexible material attached to the bottom portion of the conducting tube, which nozzles are upwardly curved at their free ends, said nozzles where they are connected with the said conducting tube being provided with independent passages connecting them with said tube, a valve common to both of said passages, and buttons at the tree ends of the nozzles, adapted for engagement with the nostrils of the user of the device.

2. A nasal douche, consisting of a container, a conduct4 ing tube extending down from the container, which conducting tube is provided with a head at its lower end having channels therein connecting with the channel in the body portion of the tube, nozzles secured to the channel portions of the said head, and a valve operating in the head at the point of juncture of the branch channels with the main channel of the tube.

A nasal douche, consisting of a container, a body tube extending down from the container, said body tube beingprovided with a head at its lower end, in which head converging channels are formed, leading into the main channel of the tube, curved nozzles, one of which is secured at the outer end of each of the said channels, a needle valve operating in said head at the point of its juncture of the branch channels with the main channel of said tube, exterior means for operating said needle valve, and apertured buttons at the outlet ends of the said nozzles.

In testimony whereof I have signed my name to this specication in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.
