The Summer of 1884: Nitrous Oxide from Drs. Gross and Basehore

This early color-free image of two well-dressed girls (left) is the obverse of a trade card from the Wood Library-Museum ’s Ben Z. Swanson Collection. “Gross&Basehore, Dentists ” advertised dental extraction services in York, Pennsylvania “without pain, using nitrous oxide gas.” A shoemaker-turned-dentist, Milton H. Gross (1857 to 1935) earned his D.D.S. in 1880 from the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery. Related to one of Dr. Gross’s dental school classmates, Ho race E. Basehore (1862 to 1931) abandoned bartending to become Gross’s preceptee. Analysis of newspaper advertisements helps date this trade card to the summer of 1884.

AbstractPurposePerforated peptic ulcer (PPU) complicates 2 to 10% of patients with peptic ulcer disease and has mortality risk of up to 20%. Omental patch repair is the mainstay of surgical management and gastric resectional procedures are advocated for a large/giant ulcer or suspected malignancy. Emergency gastrectomy is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study is to compare the outcomes of omental patch repair with gastrectomy in patients with large PPU ( ≥ 20 mm).MethodsA retrospective review of all PPU patients who underwent surgery from January 2008 to December 2014 was d...

In elderly patients, this trial aimed to assess the impact of the addition of remifentanil during RSI on the occurrence of: tachycardia (primary outcome), hypertension (due to intubation) nor hypotension (rem...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the potential analgesic action of 8% capsaicin cream for topical use in patients with myofascial pain syndrome.MethodsInitially, cream formulations of PLA (Placebo) and CPS (Capsaicin 8%) were developed and approved according to the current requirements of the health authority agency. The 40 participating patients were randomly assigned to the PLA and CPS groups in a double-blind fashion. Before the creams were topically administered, according to the allocation group, the local anesthetic was used for a period of 50 minutes directly in the area of interest. The cream was applied...

A growing number of studies, in particular pre-clinical studies, however, demonstrate that general anesthetics can cause neuronal death and even long-term neurological deficits. Herein, we report our literature review and meta-analysis data of the neurological outcomes after anesthesia in the young. We also review ava...
