A SIMPLE APPARATUS FOR THE INTRAVENOUS INJECTION OF SALVARSAN OR OTHER DRUGS

A SIMPLE APPARATUS FOR THE INTRAVENOUS INJECTION OF SALVARSAN OR OTHER DRUGS The nearly universal recommendation of the intravenous use of salvarsan has brought up the question of which is the most convenient and best contrivance for the administration of this drug. A large glass syringe is probably the simplest appliance for giving the injection; however, it is not always possible to get a syringe which will hold 300 c.c. If it is administered by gravity, it is essential for the operator to have an assistant. The apparatus which I am going to describe can be constructed at a small cost, answers the purpose in every respect and can easily be operated by the physician alone. The materials required are: Wide-mouth bottle, capacity 360 c.c. (12 oz.). Rubber stopper to fit the bottle, two perforations in stopper. Two glass tubes to fit perforations, one sufficiently long to reach to the bottom of the bottle, the other to reach through the stopper.

Abstract

The nearly universal recommendation of the intravenous use of salvarsan has brought up the question of which is the most convenient and best contrivance for the administration of this drug. A large glass syringe is probably the simplest appliance for giving the injection; however, it is not always possible to get a syringe which will hold 300 c.c. If it is administered by gravity, it is essential for the operator to have an assistant. The apparatus which I am going to describe can be constructed at a small cost, answers the purpose in every respect and can easily be operated by the physician alone. The materials required are: Wide-mouth bottle, capacity 360 c.c. (12 oz.). Rubber stopper to fit the bottle, two perforations in stopper. Two glass tubes to fit perforations, one sufficiently long to reach to the bottom of the bottle, the other to reach through the stopper. A
