Application December 16, 1935, Serial No. 54,757 3 Claims. (Cl. 128-445) My invention is a breathing device which is applied to the nose of the user. An important object of the invention is to pro vide a device of the above mentioned character 5 which is applied to the nose of the user, while being shaved, with a hot towel or towels applied to the face, affording communication between the interior of‘ the nose and the atmosphere exter iorly of the hot towels, thereby preventing the 10 inhaling of hot vapors from the towels. A further object of the invention is to provide a device of the above mentioned character, which is extremely simple in ‘construction, and will be held in place, in use, by the towel. A further object of the invention is to pro 15 vide a device of the above mentioned character which may be made of paper or cardboard, so that it can be discarded after use. A further object of the invention is to provide 20 a device of the above mentioned character which may be made in different sizes for ?tting differ ent sizes and shapes of noses. A further object of the invention is to provide a blank from which the device may be quickly 25 and conveniently assembled, so that such devices may be shipped to the user in the knocked down condition, thus economizing in space. Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent during the course of the fol 30 lowing description. In the accompanying drawing forming a part of this application and in which like numerals are employed to designate like parts throughout the same, Figure 1 is a perspective view of a breathing 35 device embodying my invention, showing the same applied to the nose, Figure 2 is a central longitudinal sectional view through the same, in use, 40 Figure 3 is a perspective view of the device, re moved, ' Figure 4 is a plan view of a blank from which the device is formed, Figure 5 is a plan view of the overlapping ends} 45 of the inner side of the device, showing the a - tension it, while the end extension projects downwardly below the lower end ll of the ad jacent side section it. Arranged between the extensions H is a lip-engaging flap M, integral with the side section 8 and foldable with relation thereto, upon a scored or folding line E5. The lip-engaging ?ap M is separate from the end extensions H, as shown. The side sections it] 10 are cut away along the line or edge it, for pro ducing a nose receiving opening H. In forming the breathing device from this blank, the side sections 9 are folded upon the lines 6,, transversely of the side section 8, until 15 they assume a position at substantially a right angle to the side section 8, and then the side sections it are folded transversely with relation to the side sections 9, upon the folding lines 1 until the side sections it are substantially par 20 allel to the side section‘ 8. The reduced ends it’ of the side sections it overlap and are se cured together by any suitable means, such a cement which will not readily dissolve in hot water vapor. I also contemplate securing these 25 overlapping ends together by means of a me chanical device, such as a staple H’, as shown in Figure 5. I may also equip one end It!’ with a transverse slit l2’ for receiving a hook l3’, formed upon the end Ill’ of the companion side 30 section it). I also contemplate assembling the device and shipping the same to the user in the assembled condition with the ends Ill’ connected by any suitable means. _ In use, the assembled device, which is in the 35 nature of a hollow rectangular box or shell, is applied to the nose as indicated in Figures 1 and 2. The end of the nose projects into the shell and through the opening I1, and the shell is arranged generally at a right angle to the 40 longitudinal axis of the nose and projects lat erally beyond the nose for a substantial dis tance. The lip-engaging ?ap M engages the lip and is bent thereby outwardly with respect to the side 8 of the shell, and the towel is folded 45 over this lip-engaging extension so that the shell is held in place upon the nose by the Figure 6 is a plan view of a blank showing a ‘ towel. The extensions ll engage with the face adjacent to the nose and conform generally to further form of attaching means. The blank 5 is originally ?at and has spaced the contour of the face or lip at the base 01' 50 the nose. The nostrils are spaced from the side transverse scored or folding lines 5 and 1, form 8 so that breathing may properly occur and the ing an inner side section 8, intermediate side sec outer end of the shell is arranged exteriorly of ~ tions 9 and outer side sectionsv Hi, all of which the towel and in free communication with the are integral, as is obvious. The side sections 8 atmosphere, with the result that proper breath 56 and 9 have their lower end portions or exten taching means thereof, and, 55 sions l 8 provided with curved edges I2, as shown. The folding line ii projects through one end ex ’ 2 2,068,171 ing may occur and the hot water vapors will not be drawn into the nostrils. It is to be understood that the forms of my invention herewith shown and described are to sections, and outer side sections,,the outer side sections being cut away to provide a nose re ceiving opening, the blank further comprising spaced extensions at the ends of the inner side be taken as preferred examples of the same and ' section and intermediate side sections, and a that various changes in the shape, size and lip-engaging ?ap carried by the inner side sec arrangement of parts may be resorted to with tion and arranged between the spaced ex out departing from the spirit of my invention tensions. or the scope of the subjoined claims. Having thus described my invention, what I claim is: 1. A blank for forming a breathing device to be applied to the nose, said blank having pairs of folding lines for dividing the blank into an 15 inner side section, intermediate side sections and 10 3. A breathing device to be used with a hot towel or the like applied to the face, said device comprising an elongated shell, said shell hav ing oppositely arranged substantially flat sides, one side having a nose receiving opening formed therein, the opposite side having a flap attached thereto and foldable to engage upon the upper outer side sections, the outer side sections being lip, the flap being con?ned substantially within cut away to provide a nose receiving opening, the limits of the width of its side and being en the blank further comprising a lip-engaging flap secured to the inner side section. 20 2. A blank for forming a breathing device, having pairs of folding lines for dividing the blank into an inner side section, intermediate side gaged by the towel or the like for holding the device in place, said shell having its opposite ends open.
