Patients' Perspective Regarding the Administration of Local Anesthesia by Dental Hygienists.

Conclusion: This qualitative study offers insight into the patient's perspective of dental hygienists administering LA. Participants supported dental hygienists administering LA and appreciated the aspects of patient-centered care that this practice provided. Patient participants were unclear on educational requirements and training, but supported legislation allowing dental hygienists to administer LA. PMID: 31628175 [PubMed - in process]

Whether these experimental advantages extrapolate to the clinical setting and whether analgesia has no plateau at higher concentrations than investigated requires further studies.

In late 1846, following his successful public demonstrations of surgical anesthesia, Boston dentist William T. G. Morton selectedLetheon as the commercial name for the ether-based “preparation” he had used to produce insensibility to pain. We have not identified a first-hand account of the coinage ofLetheon. Although the name ultimately derives from the GreekL ēthē, the adjectiveLethean, much in use in the mid-19th century, may have influenced Morton and those he called on to assist in finding a commercial name. By one unverified account, the nameLetheon might have been coined independently by both Augustus A...

Police officer Charles Thomas (left) examines an Esmarch chloroform mask (similar to the museum example,right) found in November of 1933 alongside the dead body of Chicagoan Rheta Wynekoop. As the latter ’s philandering husband rode a train out of town, his cash-strapped mother, physician Alice Wynekoop (1871 to 1955), confirmed that she had already taken out extra life insurance on Rheta. When Rheta complained of abdominal pain, her mother-in-law chloroformed her “for the examination.” Panick ing when Rheta appeared to have dropped dead, Dr. Wynekoop tried to cover up the medical mishap by shooting her d...

While living abroad, the former First Lady of the United States, Mrs. Mary Todd Lincoln (1818 to 1882) tried to realign a picture hanging in her parlor in Pau, France. Unfortunately, the chair that she was standing upon collapsed, throwing her against a table. Debilitated by the ensuing back pain, Mrs. Lincoln boarded a transatlantic steamer back to New York City in October of 1880. There she was nearly crushed, emotionally and physically, by crowds rushing past her toward fellow passenger, actress Sarah Bernhardt. As the impoverished Mrs. Abraham Lincoln lingered in New York, waiting for congressional supplementation of h...
