To throw larger quantities of the medicinal fluid on the surfaces of the lesions in nose and throat affections, Müller of Carlsbad has added to the Körting apparatus a metal spiral inside the tube. The fluid is forced through the very small bore of this spiral at a pressure of 3 to 6 atmospheres, and with an opening of ½ mm. in diameter, a liter will be expelled in three minutes, and yet the pressure of the spray as it emerges is not strong. An olive tip excludes the air when the nose is sprayed and a bell-shaped piece answers the same purpose for the mouth. Müller has derived great benefit from Carlsbad spring water applied in this way, especially in ozena, although the spray produced a slight transient hemorrhage at first in these cases. He adds that any salt solution would probably prove equally effective.—Wien. klin. Rundschau, November
