  • Patent number: 6070574
    Abstract: A mouth-to-mouth resuscitator device for providing a physical barrier between a rescuer and a victim including a hollow tubular housing having an air input end and an air output end and counting a self closing one way valve having a disc shape secured between the housing ends and a pair of spaced apart rods secured to the disc for attaching the disc to a support plate, so that the inner end of the plate is received between the rods to support the valve disc and provide a hinge for dividing the disc into a pair of flaps to bend outward to an open position in response to forced air for transferring the air from the air input end to the air output end, and the flaps resiliently return to a closed position when the forced air has dissipated.

  • Patent number: 5263922
    Abstract: A valved bandage and method for covering an open wound in the chest cavity. The bandage includes a flexible sheet having a hole formed therein. A normally closed one way valve section extends outward from the outside of the sheet and in communication with the hole. The bandage is secured over the chest wound, so that the valve is in alignment with the chest wound opening to close the chest wound. The bandage enables fluids from inside the chest cavity to flow into the valve, to open the valve and be released to the outside. The valve automatically closes after the flow of fluids into the valve substantially ceases, to prevent back flow of air from the outside to the inside of the chest cavity. The one way valve section of the bandage may be formed into an angled configuration, so that the position of the outlet of the angled valve section may be varied to provide optimum drainage of fluids.

  • Patent number: 5261898
    Abstract: A temporary colostomy apparatus for diverting the fecal stream and comprising an open ended excrement tube including a fecal receiving end having a liquid inflatible balloon on the outside thereof. A dissolvable and absorbable band is snugly wrapped around the outside of the colon at a preselected location. The tube is inserted inside the colon through a slit opening, so that the balloon is further inward but adjacent the band. The balloon is inflated so that the outer circular periphery thereof contacts the inside surface of the arrested colon and has a circumference slightly larger than the band. The inflated balloon and the band are in an abutting relationship with a common area of the colon sandwiched therebetween, to prevent outward movement of the tube. A retainer ring is positioned on the disposal end of the tube and pressed against the outside of the body to prevent inward movement of the tube.

  • Patent number: 5222950
    Abstract: A quick release tamper evident closure device for disposable fluid medical storage bags. The closure device comprises an outlet port section and a closure cap section sealed together. The outlet port section is sealed to the bag and includes a tubular member for discharging the fluid in the bag. The outer end of the tubular memeber extends inside a cavity formed in the cap section. A tear path is formed around the cap section for severing the cap section from the port section to provide access to the tubular member. The tear path includes opposed curved portions merging into an apex. A handle extends outward from the cap section and aligned with the apex for applying an outward force which is initially concentrated at the apex, to cause ripping of the closure cap at the apex and then along the remainder of the tear path. The handle includes an opening and is flexible for varying the dimensions of the opening to accommodate the various sized finger inserted therethrough.

  • Patent number: 4838874
    Abstract: A container for fluid including a front flexible wall and a rear flexible wall sealed together along marginal portions thereof to define a body for holding fluid and unsecured along other portions thereof to provide a fluid supply opening. A valve is positioned in said supply opening between the front and rear walls, to provide a fluid inlet passageway when the valve is in an open condition and to close the fluid inlet passageway when the valve is in a closed condition. The valve comprises a flexible inner sheet and a resilient or spring sheet opposed to each other. The inner sheet is normally in contact with the spring sheet for closing the inlet passageway. The inner sheet and spring sheet extending outward from each other upon the application of an external force for opening the fluid inlet passageway, so that fluid may pass between the inner sheet and the spring sheet and into the body of the container.

  • Patent number: 4819628
    Abstract: A resuscitator device for providing a physical shield between the rescuer and a victim requiring mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. The device comprises a flexible sheet having an opening centrally formed therein and a rigid tube secured to the sheet around the periphery of the opening for inserting into the mouth of the victim. A self closing one-way valve is contained in the tube and extends downward from the sheet opening and includes a flexible sleeve normally held closed at the outer end thereof by the action of a spring formed from a strip of rigid and flexible material secured to the outer end of the sleeve. The rescuer exhales a deep breath into the input of the valve via said opening in the sheet, to overcome the resilient force of the spring for discharging forced air into the mouth of the victim. After the rescuer has fully exhaled, the spring strip resiliently closes the valve to prevent any back flow of air, mist or liquid from the victim to the rescuer.

  • Patent number: 4475909
    Abstract: A male urinary device and method for applying for an incontinent patient comprising a sheath and a cushion strip interposed between the sheath and the penis. The cushion strip includes a seat portion and an arm extending out from one side of the seat and another arm extending out from the opposite side thereof. The second arm is positioned offset from the first arm so that the arms do not overlap on each other when wrapped around the penis. The seat and the arms are dimensioned so that the arms also do not overlap on the seat. The adjacent edges of the arms are applied to abut each other when the cushion strip encircles the penis and forms a continuous ring therearound, which is non-bulging on the upper surface thereof.The cooperation of the sheath and the level cushion strip affords a liquid tight seal between the sheath and the cushion strip. The abutting adjacent edges of the arms prevent liquid leakage therebetween.

  • Patent number: 4116227
    Abstract: A combination catheter venting and urine sample collecting unit comprises a hollow open-ended body having an outlet and adapted to receive and communicate with a conduit extending to a urine collecting reservoir and an inlet adapted to receive and communicate with a catheter extending to the bladder. The body further has a urine collection needle-receiving port and a number of circumferentially spaced venting apertures spaced longitudinally of the said needle-receiving port. A strip of bacteria and liquid impermeable, and air-permeable filtering material is positioned in liquid-sealing relation beneath the venting apertures. The filtering material is carried on the outside of an open-ended support tube having circumferentially spaced apertures in alignment with said venting apertures. The support tube is enveloped by said body which is preferably molded about the tube. The body has a continuous outer annular indented wall surface upon which the needle-receiving port opens.
