Oxydonor No.2. American Artifacts.
Oxydonor. The Free Medical Dictionary.
Research Facts
The Oxydonor Victory is simply a metal tube filled with carbon. It was claimed to cure virtually all diseases simply by forcing oxygen into the body. Proponents of Sanche's incredible theory of "Diaduction" (the pseudoscientific explanation of the Oxydonor cure) organized as the Fraternity of Duxanimae. In this way, Sanche solicited donations for the cause (Diaduction), in addition to sales of the Oxydonor.
One of America's most notorious quacks, Dr. Sanche apparently moved around a lot, keeping one step ahead of the authorities. His July 27, 1897 patent lists his residence as New Orleans, and his Aug 3, 1897 patent as Detroit. In 1915, a fraud order was issued against Dr. Sanche & Co., of New York, Rochester, Chicago and Detroit. He soon evaded this setback by marketing his devices from Montreal. In Feb, 1916, the fraud order was extended to cover his Montreal address. This device likely dates from that period.
The user was required to place the centralmetal tube, or "Vocor", in a jar of iced water and then attach the the contact disk on the client’s ankle. It was declared worthless by the American Medical Association.
