The Anaesthetic Spray Producer A very ingenious apparatus somewhat on the principle of the toy for dispensing Eau de Cologne in the form of vapour, has recently been contrived by Dr Benjamin RICHARDSON for the purpose of producing what is known to the medical profession as "anaesthesia," and by the uninitiated as "numbness." Dr RICHARDSON uses his apparatus for the purpose of producing local anaesthesia, previous to performing a surgical operation, and he has been remarkably successful in many cases. The spray of ether is, for instance, applied to the gums before extracting a tooth, and the tooth becomes as white as the tooth itself in less than a minute, and quite insensible. So successful is this method in extracting teeth that the Doctor speaks of extracting four teeth in one case, without the patient experiencing any pain, and without the loss of a drop of blood. The apparatus has been procured by Mr H. LYON, of Ipswich, and that gentleman intends to make use of it in his dental practice. The great point in favour of the new method of local anaesthetics is the fact that the reaction is in no degree painful, and its use is by no means prejudicial to the health of the patient, as is sometimes the case with the use of chloroform.
