PARENTERAL BOTTLE CONSTRUCTION Filed Sept. 11, 1944 QWJQW Patented Feb. 19, 1946 7 PARENTERAL BOTTLE CONSTRUCTION John E. B. Shaw, Chicago, Ill. Application September 11, 1944, Serial No. 553,635
My invention relates to a bottle adapted for blood transfusions or parenteral administration Among the objects of my invention is to provide a sealing plug for a bottle having a sterilized top portion, maintained in sterile condition by a covering member. Another object is to supply said covered sterilized top portion with depressed indicators to guide aneedle through the plug for passage of fluid either in or out of the bottle. My invention-also contemplates such other objects, advantages and capabilities as will later more fully appear and which are inherently possessed by my invention.
While I have shown in the accompanying drawing a preferred form ofmy invention, yet I wish it understood that the same is susceptible of modification and change without departing from the spirit of my invention.
Referring to the drawing,
Fig. 1 is a perspective view of the bottle construction; Fig. 2 is a sectional view of the upper portion of the container; Fig. 3 is a similar view with the closure construction in closed position shown in cross section; Fig. 4 is a view similar to Fig. 3 but showing the cover member beingremoved, preparatory to the insertion of a needle;
Fig. 5 is a top plan view of the cover member; Fig. 6 is a top plan view of the plug; and Fig. 7
is a bottom plan view of the plug.
The embodiment selected to illustrate my inventlon comprises a bottle It formed of glass or any other suitable material, having. an open mouth it.
Extending within the open mouth it is the body portion it of a plug l3 of pierceable rubber or the like. A flange It at the upper point of the body portion l2 provides a rim l5 which rests on top of the walls It of the bottle It surrounding the mouth it.
The body portion H has a hollowed out portion I! extending upwardly therein from the bottom thereof to that point It slightly below where the body portion ends and the flange It begins. The open bottom of hollowed out portion ll communicates with the interior'of bottle Ill.
In the top IQ of flange I4 are cut slight spaced depressions 2D and 2|. Depression 20 is marked Out and depression 2| is marked In." An upwardly extending opening 22 in the wall above hollowed out portion I1 is positioned directly below depression 20.
portion on top Ill and covers depressions 20 and 2 I.
A cap 26 made of light metal or the like having screw threaded side walls Z'l is positioned so that said walls 2! interengage with screw threads 28 on the neck 29 of bottle it. The cap at has a, top flange portion 30 which bears against the top 3i of body portion 25 of covering member it.
When it is desired to add blood or plasma to bottle it, the user grasps tab 32 which extends upwardly from and is an integral part of the top 30 of covering member 2t and pulls it away from flange 3!] and exposing for the first time depressions 2!] and H which have previously been sterilized and kept sterile by sterilized covering member Ed, said tab 32*being an integral part of rubber'covering member 2t permits the covering member to stretch, slip out from under and be removed from said holding member without damage to said covering member, said holding member and said plug. The user then places a needle at opening 2! and pierces the top 19, extending through hollowed out portion ill into the interior of the bottle ill, for the passing therein of the blood or plasma.
When it is desired to remove plasma from the container it, a needle connected to a suitable filtering device is pushed through the depression 2! marked In. A long aspirating needle then is pushed through the hole at depression at, marked Out, and the plasma is aspirated into a desired bottle.
Having thus described my invention, I claim:
1. A blood transfusion bottle comprising walls forming a hollow container portion and ending in a screw threaded neck and open mouth, a plug of pierceable rubber material having a body portion extending within said open mouth, and
a flange resting on the top of the walls for sealing said mouth, said plug having a sterilized top portion having a pair of spaced depressions, a rubber covering member having a sterilized bottom portion substantially co-extensive with said top. portion of said plug and positioned thereagainst to maintain said top portion in sterilized condition, and a holding member of light metal material having a vertical screw threaded portion adapted to interengage with the screw threaded neck and having a horizontal portion engaging the top of said covering member, said covering member having an integral tab adapted to be grasped for removal of said covering member from said plug and exposing the top portion thereof, either of said depressions adapted to receive and guide a needle, said plug adapted to be pierced by said needle so that fluid may be added to or withdrawn irom the bottle.
2. A parenteral bottle comprising a hollow container portion having an open mouth, a plug of pierceable rubber material sealing the open mouth 01 said container portion, said plug having a sterilized top portion, a rubber covering member having a sterilized bottom portion positioned against said sterilized top portion oi said plug and maintaining it in sterilized condition, and a holding member of light metal material attached to the neck or said container, said holding member having a horizontal portion engaging said covering member and adapted to I normally hold said covering member asainst said plug, said covering member having an integral tab, said holding member and said covering member adapted upon a user grasping and pulling said tab to stretch said covering member to permitsaid covering member to be removed from said holding member without damage to said covering member, said holding member and said plus.
