—The advantages of nitrous oxid as a preliminary to ether are well known and require no particular commendation. Suffice it to say that nitrous oxid followed by ether combines the elements of safety, rapid and pleasant narcosis, avoidance of the stage of struggling and excitement, and a great reduction of the quantity of ether necessary for the induction and continuation of the anesthesia. Various apparatus have been devised for this series. Many, however, are rather cumbersome, complicated and expensive.
—The inhaler which I have devised for the administration of nitrous oxid and ether consists of a closed metallic face-piece, provided with an inflatable rubber cushion, accurately fitting it to the patient's face. On top of the face-piece is a detachable glass and metal ether-container, from which a visible supply of ether may be fed in definite quantities as desired. (Modification of Brown's ether container.) Within the face-piece is a wire
