  • Publication number: 20080144178
    Abstract: According to one embodiment of the invention, a microscope drape disposable lens cover system includes a coupling member configured to couple to an objective lens barrel of a microscope. A lens housing is coupled to the coupling member. The lens housing includes a transparent protective lens positioned such that a geometric normal of the transparent protective lens forms an angle with respect to an optical axis of an objective lens housed within the objective lens barrel when the housing is coupled to the objective lens barrel. At least a portion of a fitting is disposed between the coupling member and the lens housing. The fitting is frictionally retained adjacent the coupling member to prevent the rotation of the fitting relative to the coupling member but enables the rotation of lens housing with respect to the objective lens barrel coupling member.

  • Patent number: 6314958
    Abstract: A medical drape for controlling fluid during a medical procedure. The drape includes a base sheet formed of a fluid impervious material which is placed underneath a patient and on an operating bed. A sealing lip, which is made of a material such as a plastic encapsulated, compressible foam to conform to the underside of the patient, is attached to the base sheet in a fluid tight fashion and serves to achieve a fluid tight seal between the medical drape and the patient positioned thereon. The sealing lip rings a region of the base sheet and causes fluid that runs down along the patient above the base sheet to collect on the base sheet region, from where it is funneled to a fluid collection pouch. In an alternate embodiment, the medical drape is provided with a patient covering main sheet. A method of controlling fluid run-off during medical procedures with the a medical drape is also disclosed.
