Excerpt from Chloroform, the Best of Anaesthetics

During the inhalation I watch the face more than I do the pulse, although the face, the chest movements andwthe pulse, as felt in the temple, are all kept under constant observation. The color and expression of the face will always be a sure index of the working of the heart and lungs. -as soon as sleep begins to show itself, I take away the pillow from the head of the patient, so as to insure a horizontal decubitus, which would often be seriously. Objected to by the patient during the sensible condition. Should symptoms of vomiting show themselves, the patient is immediately turned over on the side until emesis is accomplished. The anaes thetic is continued, notwithstanding the retching. I find the continued inhalation of the anaesthetic the best method for checking that involuntary contraction of the abdominal muscles, which accompanies vomiting.
