This table was designed with the view of securing one that would serve equally well for a cataract operation, brain surgery, mastoid operations, throat work, laryngotomy or bronchoscopy. The table has now been in use for one year and has filled the requirements for this work. The table can be raised to a height of 41 inches and lowered to 31 inches. This allows the operator to work standing or sitting. The table may be tilted to any desired position. This can be done very rapidly if difficulty with anesthesia or other conditions indicate the need for a change of position.
The head-piece of the table may be elevated to any desired position. This advantage, together with the tilting of the table, greatly diminishes the work in bronchoscopy and laryngectomy. In bronchoscopy it is not necessary to have an exceedingly well-trained assistant to hold the head.
The table is firm
