Abstract

Many of the unpleasant effects of cocain may be averted and much of the dread of operations may be dispelled by using the following method of local anesthesia. As a preliminary step (preparatory for the application of a stronger solution) a spray of one-tenth per cent. cocain solution is used. In about half a minute, the same spray may be repeated and the thirty seconds between these two sprays may be utilized in arranging a very small amount of cotton on the probe for immediate use. Although this requires but a minute of time, the membranes are sufficiently anesthetized to allow the introduction of the probe without giving the patient any annoyance from the contact of the cotton with sensitive parts. The cotton on the probe has been moistened in a 25 per cent. solution of cocain. Anesthesia will take place in from three to five minutes, by rubbing the
