Reference Comments
Dr. Ray Matthews; similar to aspirator jar illustrated in Canadian Heidbrink catalogue, p. 25 (see attached photocopy); "Blakiston's Illustrated Pocket Medical Dictionary", edited by Normand L. Hoerr, M.D. and Arthur Osol, Ph.D., 1952, p. 74
Research Facts
An aspirator is a negative pressure apparatus for withdrawing liquids from cavities; the suction tube was hooked up to a suction machine; when negative pressure was created, then fluid could be sucked in via the hollow tube with a rubber hose attachment; the bent metal tube would have led to the patient via a rubber tube; the ping-pong ball was used to stop aspiration when the collecting jar was full; the ball would rise with the collected liquid and seal up the top and discontinue the negative pressure within the jar
