Our work with children at the James Whitcomb Riley Hospital requires considerable intranasal work under general anesthesia. A postnasal pack has been in common use, and considerable difficulty has been encountered when the nose fills up with blood or débris. In order to correct this difficulty, an aspirator was made by Charles Storz, which fits up through the postnasal pack, or rather, around which the postnasal pack is wrapped.

This instrument has been found to be of great service, even in so simple a procedure as lavage of the maxillary sinus. The accompanying figures illustrate the instrument.
