The author, speaking as one who has authority, defends his evident opinion that ether is the anesthetic of choice in almost all cases. He describes his technics, the devices which he has invented for the administration of ether and also his equipment for intratracheal anesthesia and for resuscitation. Instructions and advice are on a broad plane and are stated in generalities. For those who are anxious to follow Dr. Flagg's technics, the book will be well received.
