Abstract

One morning a man was brought into the surgery of the Good Samaritan Hospital with the right side of his face badly lacerated, requiring an operation. The anesthetic was started, and while the patient was being scrubbed the surgeons realized the difficulty of doing the operation with the ordinary inhaler constantly in the way. Within five minutes I devised and had ready for operation the apparatus shown in the illustration.

The tubes were introduced into the nostrils, the anesthetic was continued, and the operation finished without interference from administration of the anesthetic.
