Abstract

During the past few months two tubes have been devised which may be introduced by mouth and passed into the stomach and thence into the duodenum. The description of these tubes was published almost simultaneously by Gross1 and by Einhorn.2 Both instruments, however, were constructed for use on adults, and both seem to have accomplished their purposes, although they differ somewhat in principle.

I believe that this tube will be of practical use in the treatment of infants, and may serve also to give additional information in those unexplained cases of malnutrition with which we
