#1
Christina H Shin, Theodore A Alston
In 1847, British anesthesia pioneer John Snow (1813-1858) observed that patients did not manifest cyanosis during induction with hypoxic mixtures of ether vapor in air. He hypothesized a molecular mechanism that would be understood over a century later as the second gas effect.

In the 1870s, Joseph Jacobs was employed as an apprentice in the Longs and Billups pharmacy in Athens, GA. Jacobs later established a chain of pharmacies in Atlanta, GA. Coca-Cola was first sold to the public on May 8, 1886, at Jacobs' Pharmacy in the Five Points district of Atlanta, GA. The soda fountain in Jacobs' Pharmacy was owned by Willis E. Venable, who was related to James M. Venable, the first patient etherized by Crawford Long in Jefferson, GA.

Professor Henryk Hilarowicz was a Polish surgeon who first described the technique of brachial plexus block performed in the interscalene groove between the anterior and middle scalene muscles. The article devoted to the technique appeared in the German-language journal Zentralblatt für Chirurgie in 1925, 45 years before Alon Winnie, who is widely regarded as the originator of this method, published his paper in Anesthesia & Analgesia in 1970.

William James greatly influenced the fields of psychology, philosophy, and religion during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This was the era of Modernism, a time when many writers rejected the certainty of Enlightenment ideals. Positivism, which rose to prominence in the early 19th century, had emphasized physical phenomena, empirical evidence, and the scientific method. Darwin's On the Origin of Species (1859), with its theory of natural selection, provided an explanation for the evolution of species apart from a divine Creator...

Matthew L Edwards, George S Bause
American dentist Zacheus Rogers taught surgeon Edmund Andrews-and indirectly anesthesia pioneers SJ Hayes and FW Hewitt-to oxygenate anesthetics. Ironically, Rogers may have himself suffered neurologic damage by failing to oxygenate the nitrous oxide that he is speculated to have abused personally.

Though most patients survived the hypoxic challenge, some patients likely suffered asphyxial brain damage from GQ Colton's nitrous-oxide techniques and were admitted to insane or lunatic asylums.

Marta Mion
Several ancient authors cited mandrake as a powerful and well-known narcotic drug: from Homer to Dioscorides, from Plato to Aristotle, passing from Hippocrates, Demosthenes, Theophrastus, Celsus, and Apuleius. Their detailed studies included the concrete appearance of the plant, the related recipes including mandrake as essential ingredient, the right dosages, how to administer the obtained medication, and the possible collateral effects. Even in the Middle Ages, the success of this root continued: Isidore of Seville, Theodoric of Cervia, Gilbertus Anglicus, and William from Varignana extensively reported their researches on sponges soaked with mandrake juice, which were used before surgical interventions as soporific tools...

Darin J Correll, Igor Kissin
PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to determine how drugs and their administration techniques, introduced over the past 40 years and still popular now, influenced publication-based academic interest in the treatment of postoperative pain. METHODS: Specific scientometric indices-popularity index (PI), top journal selectivity index (TJSI), and index of change (IC)-were used. Of the 61 terms searched, only those that had a PI value ≥1.0 during the 2011-2015 period were selected...

Benjamin Gorbaty
The Civil War influenced all aspects of American society and culture, including the field of medicine and critical care. Union physician Lauramann Howe Russell's letter to his daughter, Ellen Howe, written on October 19, 1862, illustrates the changes in hospital construction, gender roles in healthcare and medical treatments which revolutionized healthcare during the Civil War. This letter offers a glimpse of the medical care of wounded soldiers during the early years of the Civil War. In describing his conversion hospital, he reveals the precursor to the new hospital construction which would greatly influence hospital design for decades to come...

Lisa Huang, Christine N Sang, Manisha S Desai
BACKGROUND: The use of equipment powered by electricity in the operating room increased the risk of fires in the presence of flammable agents such as ether and cyclopropane. Chloroform was associated with cardiac arrhythmias and liver damage. The introduction of halothane in the late 1950s was heralded as a solution to many problems facing the specialty of anesthesia. We explore whether the manufacturer promptly reported halothane's adverse effects to regulatory agencies and practitioners...

REVIEW
Brendan McGrath, Christopher Tennuci, George Lee
One-lung anesthesia presents many practical, anatomical, and physiological challenges to the anesthetist in modern day practice. The techniques and equipment that we use today have developed slowly over the course of the last century. The idea of isolated lung ventilation came from bronchospirometry studies by pioneering physiologists as early as 1871, and some of their original equipment was adapted for clinical use in the 1930s. Anesthetic techniques have generally been developed to facilitate surgical advances, and the development of double-lumen tubes is no exception...

Rajesh P Haridas, George S Bause
A previously unpublished four-page letter from Charles T. Jackson, MD, to John Snow, MD, was acquired in December 2016 by the Wood Library-Museum of Anesthesiology, Schaumburg, IL. The letter may be a draft or a copy of the letter which may have been sent to Snow in 1848. Jackson's letter to Snow does not reveal any significant new insight into the controversy over the discovery of etherization. A hitherto unknown meeting of Jackson's former chemistry student, Joseph Peabody, and John Snow, MD, was revealed in the letter...
