  • Patent number: 4406281
    Abstract: The specification discloses a cover for protecting a hospital operating room tourniquet. A thin sheet (12) is formed from flexible, liquid impervious material and has a length sufficient to be wrapped around the limb of a patient. A pad (14) is formed along one side of the sheet in order to be wrapped around the patient's limb to perform cushioning thereto. A fastener (26-28) is attached to one edge of the sheet and is attached to another portion of the sheet in order to maintain the sheet in the desired position about the patient's limb such that a tourniquet can be placed thereover. The sheet has a width wider than the tourniquet such that a portion of the flexible sheet may be folded over the tourniquet to cover and shield the tourniquet from moisture and contamination.

  • Patent number: 4372301
    Abstract: A universal arm sling and shoulder immobilizer (10) is provided. The shoulder immobilizer (10) includes a sling trough (14) having first and second ends (26, 28) with the first end (26) closed for allowing the elbow of the arm to abut the closed end (26). The sling trough (14) is constructed of flexible material allowing the second end (28) to be folded towards the first end (26) for shortening the length of the sling trough (14) for providing a sling of a desired length thus allowing the shoulder immobilizer (10) to accommodate a wide range of limb sizes. A support strap (16) of variable length is provided and is secured to the first end of the sling trough (14) and is of sufficient length to extend across the back of the wearer, over the opposite shoulder and to the top portion of the sling trough (14) adjacent the second end (28) thereof. A restraining strap (18) is provided for securing the limb supported by the sling trough (14) adjacent the chest of the wearer thus providing shoulder immobilization.
