AUTOMATICALLY RETRACTABLE NEEDLE SYRINGE Filed Feb. 14, 1964 INV ENT OR iqaz'azd 6. Weliman ATTORNEYS United States Patent 3,306,290 AUTOMATICALLY RETRACTABLE NEEDLE SYRINGE Harold S. Weltman, 292 S. Franklin St., Wilkes-Barre, Pa. 18702 Filed Feb. 14, 1964, Ser. No. 344,996 10 Claims. (Cl. 128218) This invention relates to hypodermic syringes, or the like, of the type employed by dentists and physicians for injecting drugs, and other fluids into body tissues. More particularly, the present invention relates to an improved syringe of the type employing disposable carpules as used in the dental profession to inject a local anesthetic.

The hypodermic syringes that are presently used to effect subcutaneous injections are characterized by a plunger operated device that carries a slender tubular needle through which liquid is passed into body tissue. The tubular needle being exposed to view is subect to accidental damage and contamination during sterilization or while being carried from place to place and causes apprehension in the patient on seeing the needle.

Accordingly, it is an object of the present invention to provide a syringe with an automatically retractable needle whereby the needle is protected when not in use thus saving expensive replacement of damaged needles and providing freedom from contamination and improved psychological disposition of the patient by removing the anticipation, apprehension and excitement caused by sight of an exposed needle.

Another object of the invention is the provision of an improved dental syringe of the type employing disposable carpules, which is of simple, inexpensive and practical construction and which is easily kept in good operating and aseptic condition.

Still another object is the provision of a new and improved hypodermic needle syringe which is convenientfor dental use and which allows concealment and protection of the needle portion of the syringe until immediately before insertion into the tissue of the patient whereby the needle is extended out of the sight of the patient.

Yet another object of the invention is to provide a new and improved syringe of the foregoing character that is highly effective, extremely serviceable and yet easily manufactured at low cost.

Other objects and many of the attendant advantages of the invention will be readily appreciated as the same becomes better understood by reference to the following detailed description when considered in connection with the accompanying drawings in which like reference numerals designate like parts throughout the figures thereof and wherein:

FIG. 1 is a fragmentary elevational view of a typical preferred form of my improved hypodermic syringe;

FIG. 2 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view through the syringe of FIG. 1 with the needle shown in a retracted position;

FIG. 3 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view similar to FIG. 2 but with the needle shown in a projected position.

FIG. 4 is an enlarged transversed vertical sectional view taken on the line 4-4 of FIG. 3 and FIG. 5 is a fragmentary vertical sectional view of a modified form of the hypodermic syringe.

Referring now to the drawings that are shown; in FIG. 1 the hypodermic syringe 6 of the typical simple cylinder and piston type device and as illustrated is chargeable with a carpule or fluid carrying unit 8 and having a plunger 10 adapted to operate against the carpule to eject fluid therefrom through needle 12.

The body portion of barrel 14 is usually of cylindrical shape and is formed with longitudinal openings or slots 16 on opposite sides thereof allowing view and manipulation of the carpule. A thumb rest 18 is mounted on the back end of the plunger 10 and finger rests 20 are mounted on and are adapted to revolve around head portion 22. The opposite end of the plunger has stop means 24 which, on extensions of the plunger, also act as compressing means for the carpule.

There are various head portions available on different types of syringes that provide means for supporting the plunger and allow access to the barrel for insertion of carpules. But the type preferred for the purposes of the present invention comprise a hollow head portion 22 having a central bore 26 to receive plunger positioning means comprising a tapered cylinder 28 having a central cylindrical bore 30 for receiving the plunger and being tapered so as to fit a short distance into the back end of the barrel and also adapted to be disposed into the recess 26 of hollow head portion 22 when compressed against spring 34 by withdrawing the plunger. Said head portion has arms 36 rotatably secured to barrel 14 by means of screws 38.

The assembly of this section of the inventive device is accomplished by inserting the cylinder over the plunger, the narrow end of the cylinder toward the stop on the plunger. The spring is then slid over the plunger and the plunger inserted into the head and the thumb rest screwed on the other end of the plunger. The spring is compressed and the holes in the arms of the head aligned with holes provided in the barrel and the screws inserted. The back part of the syringe is then ready to receive a carpule.

A standard carpule comprises a tubular transparent body 40 containing fluid 42 having a front end comprising a first plug 44- constructed of pliant type material and adapted to be pierced by the rearward pointed end 46 of needle 12 and a back end comprising a piston type of plug 48. The plugs are preferably of soft pliant material such as rubber so that the first plug is penetrable by needle in a sealing engagement and the back plug is compressible to have a sliding and sealing engagement with the interior of the carpule wall.

The inside front portion of barrel 14 is threaded to receive externally threaded hub 50. The hub comprises a front tapered portion 52 terminating in a rounded point 54 having an exit port. The hollow, externally threaded back portion is adapted to receive needle retracting spring '56 and a bore is provided through the front hub portion to allow extension of the needle. The needle 12 is of the usual doubly sharpened type and has a piston disc 58 secured thereto at a suitable midpoint allowing travel of said needle from an extended to a retracted position in its housing in the barrel. The forward travel of said disc and needle is restrained by abutment of the disc on the end of hub 50 and rearward from said hub is provided an enlarged bore section 60 which acts as a cylinder for said piston and needle and terminates at stops 62 which is the start of narrower section 64 of the barrel, which extends along the length of the carpule 8.

The assembly of the front section of the barrel is accomplished by inserting the needle and piston into the front end of the barrel, placing the spring over the needle and screwing the hub onto the barrel. Insertion of,a carpule is accomplished by completely withdrawing the plunger from the barrel so as to compress the head spring and draw the cylinder into the recess provided in the head of the barrel. The entire head is then rotated on the arms pivoted at the screws secured to the barrel thus exposing the back end of the barrel. The carpule is now inserted into the barrel and the head rotated back to a closed position. The front plug of the carpule may be pierced by the back point of the needle in one of two Ways. The carpule may be grasped through the slots in the barrel and moved forward in the barrel until the plug is pierced and seated against the back side of the piston disc of the needle. The same effect may be accomplished by exerting pressure on the carpule by means of the thumb rest and plunger thus driving the carpule forward until it is seated on the needle. The latter method is preferred since the needle may be cleared of air at the same time by expelling a small amount of fluid. In either case, release of pressure results in the automatic retraction of the needle and return of the carpule by the bias of the expanding forwardly disposed spring. To inject the fluid, slight pressure on the thumb rest completely extends the needle out of the hub and by additional pressure, the rear piston type stopper of the carpule will be moved forward relative to the walls of the carpule by means of the plunger and the fluid contained therein will be expelled from the needle. Removal of the needle from the injection site and release of pressure on the thumb rest results in automatic retraction of the needle into the hub. The head is again broken open and by finger pressure through the slots in the barrel, the carpule is removed and the syringe is now ready for sterilization.

The modified embodiment of the invention shown in FIG. has most of the advantages of the first described structure except the ability to retract the needle once the carpule has been inserted. This device has the same forward and back sections and is operated and used in the same manner. However, the barrel is shortened by an amount equivalent to the cylindrical bore provided for the axial movement of the needle piston. Therefore, on insertion of the carpule, the needle remains permanently extended but is automatically retracted during sterilization and handling so as to protect the needle from accidental breakage or damage. Specifically, this modified embodiment comprises a shortened barrel 66 having an internally threaded front end and externally threaded hub 50 secured thereto and an axially moveable doubly pointed needle 12 with piston means 58 disposed in enlarged cylindrical bore 60 in the barrel terminating in stop 62. A carpule retaining narrowed back portion 64 of the barrel terminates in rotatable head section 22 carrying plunger and stop member 24, tapered cylinder 28 and head spring 34.

The following is illustrative of a specific embodiment of the invention, it being understood that the relative dimensions are given by way of illustration only and can be altered to suit particular requirements:

variety of carpules. The main parts of the syringe can be stainless steel or chrome plated steel. The piston can be a machined disc or of the self lubricating variety of plastics capable of withstanding sterilization temperatures such as a polytetrafiuroethylene, commercially known as Teflon or Kel-F.

Obviously, many other modifications and variations of the present invention are possible in the light of the above teachings. It is therefore, to be understood that within the scope of the appended claims, the invention may be practiced otherwise than as specifically described.
