Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Oct. 17, 1905.

To ail whon't it may concern:

Be it that I, SOLOMON E. HEINEMAN, acfti'zen of the United States, residing at Detroit, county of Wayne, State of Michigan, have invented a certain new and useful 1mprovement in Emergency-Bandages for Surgical Purposes; and I declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it pertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, which form a part of this specification.

This-invention relates to bandages for surgical purposes-and has for its object an improved and convenient bandage provided with an antiseptic dressing whichcover-eaportion of the bandage and provided with parts which are free from the dressing and which are intended to be utilized for wrapping the parts mi wdhich the antiseptic dressing has been app 1e In the drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective of a bandage which is intended to be separated into parts and each part used as may be necessary. Fig. 2 is a longitudinal section of such bandage.

The bandage consists of a piece of fabric, preferably linen or cotton, in a strip A, near the middle of which is applied a coating of an antiseptic dressing B. The preferred antiseptic dressing is some antiseptic material held in a mass of gelatinous material easily rendered fluid or semifluid by heat and somewhat soluble by water. A composition of gelatin, with asmall amount of glycerin, of a consistency to be when cold or at the normal atmospheric temperature so thick and solid that it will not run, but which when heated slightly above the temperature of the body becomes semifiuid, is preferred.

The gelatinous mixture containing the antiseptic material mingled with it occupies a space at the middle of the strip of fabric sufficien't to cover any ordinary wound, (a desirable extent is a length suflicient to completely surround the finger,) and at each side of the gelatinous mixture the fabric is extended without dressing for several inches. Preferably the gelatin coating is cut into sections, each one having a width across the fabric sufficient for an ordinary bandage, and the entire bandage may be cut when it is desired to use any portion thereof into a section whose width is'proper for the use to which it is to be then applied.

The special use of sucha bandage is in places where workmen are liable to be injured and where it is desirable to have at hand a clean antiseptic bandage which may be used at once as a dressing on a recently-produced wound. In using it a portion suflicient for the desired application is cut or torn from the bandage, using one, two, or more of the sections 0 d e f of the antiseptic dressing. The portion separated from the large bandage is heated for a moment until the dressing is softened to the proper consistency, is then placed on the wound, and the ends h j are used to wrap the wound and finish the dressing.

What I claim is- An emergency-bandage comprising a strip of textile material having secured thereon intermediate its ends a longitudinally-extended coating of soluble antiseptic material said coating being cut into sections, each one having a width across the fabric sufficient for an ordinary bandage.

In testimony whereof I sign this specification in the presence of two witnesses.
