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

Reference Comments
Dr. Ray Matthews; similar to 997.008.004; also see 997.008.034a-c; "Understanding Anaesthesia Equipment
-- Construction, Care and Complications" by Jerry A. Dorsch, M.D. and Susan E. Dorsch, M.D.,
1975, p. 47 (see attached photocopy)
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

Research Facts
Information provided by manufacturer: "This device is simply inserted under the skin and is designed to diagnose syncope without using electrical leads. The monitor features a continuous looping memory that can record up to 42 minutes of the heart's electrical activity before and following a fainting episode. This information helps physicians determine the cause of the syncope. The Reveal was developed in Canada by Dr. George Klein at the London Health Sciences Centre and our engineers at Medtronics of Canada, and is now exported around the world."
