BREATHING DEVICE
‘ Edward Bell Fishburne, Anniston, Ala.
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,

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

not be drawn into the nostrils.
It is to be understood that the forms of my
invention herewith shown and described are to

sections being cut away to provide a nose re
ceiving opening, the blank further comprising
spaced extensions at the ends of the inner side

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.

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.
