DENTAL PATIENT CAN GIVE HERSELF GAS (Oct, 1934)

Looks easier than a balloon and a box of whippets.

DENTAL PATIENT CAN GIVE HERSELF GAS
Dental patients can now administer their own anesthesia. The gas, the same as that now used by dentists, is a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. A tube leading to the tanks containing the gases is equipped with a pistol-like control. While wearing a mask, a patient with this control can release as much gas as she needs to overcome the pain. The patient does not lose consciousness but suffers no pain.

    Tired of old-fashioned, troublesome balloons? Self-administer directly from either the stylish ISI Whipped Cream Maker, or one of the colorful ISI Soda Siphons! No more broken balloons! No more frozen hands! No more lost gas!
    (And you can make delicious flavored whipped cream or refreshing seltzer water. Yum!)
