Summary[edit]

Title
Resuscitation set, Europe, 1801-1850
Description

The idea of reviving a victim of drowning by injecting tobacco smoke into the rectum or the lungs seems very strange to us. To some physicians working two hundred years ago, however, this approach was entirely rational. The resuscitation set contains the equipment necessary to inject into the lungs, stomach or rectum. The bellows could be adapted to inflate the lungs with fresh air or to introduce more stimulating vapours such as tobacco in an attempt to revive the patient. The set includes a small ivory syringe with a flexible leather tube to inject stimulants into the stomach. It also contains nozzles, small circular discs for the nostrils and, for the rectum, the long ivory tubes at the front of the set.
