relief of pain. Feeling indisposed, she retired about eight o'clock
in the evening. At six o'clock the next morning she was found dead
in her bed, with a handkerchief containing chloroform upon her
face.--Anstruther, Scotland; Med. Times and Gaz., p. 240, August
26, 1865. 147. Male, four and one-half years; pale and sickly,
having Buffered with nephritis and dropsy. Chloroform was given on
a cloth, for the painless introduction of a catheter. The child
cried, but soon became insensible. The anaesthetic was then
withdrawn, and the catheter was introduced. After this operation
the child began to breathe badly, the lips became blue, and the
jugular veins were distended. The respiration, now ceased, and the
pulse stopped. Tickling the pharynx excited a deep inspiration, and
tracheotomy was followed by another. Artificial respiration and
galvano-puncture of the heart did no good.--Hiiter: Berliner klin.
Wochenschr., December 3, 1865; Kappeler: Case No. 3. 148. Female,
seventeen years. Had frequently taken chloroform for the painless
extraction of teeth. Twenty-five minims were now given on a napkin.
After a few inhalations the patient became very violent, but she at
length seemed to be insensible. The dentist then attempted to
extract the tooth, but found the jaws clenched. He forced them open
and drew the tooth. He then went for a glass of water, and, on
returning, was alarmed by one or two long, yawning respirations.
The pupils were dilated, the pulse disappeared, and she was dead.
Autopsy.--Left side of the heart contracted and empty. Other organs
healthy.--Gillespie: Edinburgh Med. Jour., January 1866; Kappeler:
Case No. 6. 149. Death from chloroform given for the removal of an
ingrowing toe-nail.--St. Mary's...
