A report on the use of gas, air and Trilene ancesthesia for dental and other minor procedures is presented. The advantages over gas and air and gas and oxygen are: Increased operating time. Higher oxygen administration. Greater relaxation. Easier control and greater flexibility. Lower cost of administration. The untoward sequelce are on a par with the methods at present in use. The apparatus is more portable and certainly less cumbersome than is necessary for gas and oxygen. A simple new device, when used with the De Caux-McKesson apparatus, allows for a variety of mixtures of this anaesthetic to reach the nose-piece.
