McKesson & Robbins have now ready for free distribution, upon application, a second edition of their pamphlet, giving interesting notes on the uses and properties of this valuable local anesthetic. It gives a record of important operations on the Eye, Ear and Throat, in Gynecology and Dental Surgery, all conducted by eminent investigators.
We are now the largest American manufacturers of Cocaine, and our Alkaloid, Muriate, Solutions and Oleate can be confidently relied upon. We are enabled to assure the profession of this from the many accounts we have received of successful operations conducted under the influence of our Solutions and Oleates made respectively from our own manufacture of the Muriate and the Alkaloid. We are also able to supply the Citrate and Salicylate Cocaine in Salt and Solution.
McKESSON & ROBBINS have received the following letters, among many others, in relation to this important anæsthetic:
D. B. ST. JOHN ROOSA, M. D., LL. D., says: "In my hands it has superseded either in these operations. I am entirely satisfied with Cocaine as a local anesthetic. I have found the preparation made by McKesson & Robbins as good as that from Merck's alkaloid."-Dec. 4, 1884.
CHAS. STEDMAN BULL, M. D., writes:-“I have used your solution in quite a number of cases, both as preliminary to various operations, and also as a local therapeutic agent, and have been entirely satisfied with it as a local anesthetic. It certainly does all that is claimed for it.
HERMAN KNAPP, M. D., writes :-"I have tried a sainple given me by Messrs. McKesson & Robbins, of New York, as their own make, which acted as well as Merck's."
“ 439 MONTAGUE ST., BROOKLYN, Dec. 11, 1884. "It gives me great pleasure to say that I have used the preparation of HYDROCHLORATE OF COCAINE, made by McKesson & Robbins, in a great variety of cases of operations on the eye, with the most complete satisfaction to myself. The relief from pain on the part of the patient was perfect, and no statement can be made more enthusiastic than the facts warrant.
ARTHUR MATHEW SON, M. D.,
“Surgeon Brooklyn Eye and Ear Hospital."
“123 E. TWENTY-FIFTH STREET, Dec. 10, 1884. “Messrs. McKESSON & Robbins :
“ Gents. The specimen of COCAINE, which you left with me a few weeks ago. has given great satisfaction. I have used it in more than a hundred cases of all kinds of painful affections of the eye and ear, and in a great many operations upon the eye, such as cataract-extractions, squint-operations and others, and the preparation has produced complete anesthesia in all cases. Sincerely yours, DR. MITTENDORF.'
Repeated demands have led us to add an Oleate Cocaine, containing 5% Alkaloid to oar list.
