Research Facts
Dr Ralph and Mrs Olga Crawford donated their extensive Canadian dental collection to the DCF to create the museum in 1997; further donations were received while Dr Crawford was Curator Emeritus at the Dental Canada Museum until its closure in 2008; this item was donated by Dr. William Mills from Etobicoke, Ontario; this type of anaesthesia would be used on patients who were needle-phobic, not able to have chemical anaesthetics, or did not want post-treatment numbness; electrodes were taped to the face, and the muscles were stimulated via a signal from the battery-operated unit; the patient themselves controlled the level of stimulation; one study, presented at the 2001 meeting of the American Public Health Association, found that a majority of patients found electronic anaesthesia to be acceptable; it also states that 3M's product was pulled from the market, however, because the marketability wasn't there

Dr. Ray Matthews; similar to 997.008.004; also see 997.008.034 a-c; "Understanding Anaesthesia Equipment -- Construction, Care and Complications" by Jerry A. Dorsch, M.D. and Susan E. Dorsch, M.D., 1975, p. 47
Research Facts
This machine mixed gases according to the doctor's instructions; this machine was used on children and adults for any type of surgery requiring anaesthesia; the disc flowmeter gauges were very inaccurate; the central switch could cause patient death if accidentally turned; this TO-FRO or CIRCLE switch could change the tubes leading to the patient from 1 to 2 (or the other way around, which could be fatal); the reducing valve reduced the pressure in the gas cylinder

Description
Kinet-O-meter anaesthesia machine which consists of two heavy cylindrical metal poles on a metal stand with four wheels; the top of one pole has two tank hook-ups each, for oxygen, nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide, with regulator on top; the top of the other pole has a hook-up for cyclopropane which leads to a panel with four flow meters (for nitrous oxide, cyclopropane, carbon dioxide and oxygen) in cc/liters per minute; the four flow meters lead back to the tank hook-ups by tubes; behind the flow meters, there is a blood pressure cuff manometer with a rubber tube which would originally have had a rubber bulb; a metal valve in the front was to be hooked up to the patient (via a soda lime absorber) to administer a mix of the four gases; the back of the machine has a wrench attached permanently by a metal chain, for turning on cylinders of gas.

Research Facts
The four flow meter gauges at the front regulate the flow of nitrous oxide, cyclopropane, carbon dioxide and oxygen and were very inaccurate; carbon dioxide was used to stimulate patient respiration thus allowing quicker anaesthetizing; this model allows for two cylinders each of oxygen, nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide; this was an improvement over earlier models, as cylinders sometimes ran out of gas during operations; it was difficult to determine when the oxygen cylinder was empty and nitrous oxide pressure falls very quickly; with this model, if a tank ran dry, the patient could immediately be changed over to a full tank; another improvement was that the tanks were bigger than those in earlier models; the principle of this machine is the same as other machines in the same era; the regulators are single-stage regulators.
