This new apparatus is similar to the needle-douche and the gastric motor meter. It consists of a thin rubber bag connected with a double tube, and has been devised by me for the purpose of diagnosis and treatment. As stated before, this is simply an addition to the double tube, known as the needle-douche, which I first used two years ago, and which was first shown at the International Medical Congress at Rome in 1894, and later at the meeting of the American Medical Association at Baltimore, May 7, 1895. Further reports on its uses and advantages were published in the Therapeutic Gazette, May 22, 1895, in an article on "Chronic Glandular Gastritis." Again, reference has been made to the use of the double tube in an article "Methods of Diagnosis and Therapeutics in Diseases of the Stomach," published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, June 22, 1895.
