I, Michelle Van Patten have invented a new design/utility for an INNER NOSE AIR FILTER as set forth in the following abstract. The inner nose air filter purpose is to reduce the inhaling of air pollution. The invention was born out of the need to alleviate the amount of black residue being expelled from the nose after a day of working in the Los Angeles/Long Beach port environment. The invention is meant to provide a comfortable, functional and readily usable inner nose air filter. It should be disposable and may be provided in basic white as well as various color combinations to promote daily use for the duration of the work shift when subject to the environmental elements of air pollution. The views reveal two cone-shaped cylindrical air filters connected by a nose clip/wire for attachment to the nostril separator or individual insertion. The hope is to reduce nontoxic and possibly toxic substance ingestion.

An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
