Abstract: Amory theorizes that anesthesia is caused by “paralysis or temporary
death of the nerve-substance,” “deprivation of the vitalizing power of
blood,” and/or “stagnation in the capillary circulation.” He defines
“analgesia” as insensibility to pain without anesthesia, and credits M.
Beau for the definition.
