Abstract: Todd reports on the results of a survey on the use of anesthesia during labor that he conducted twenty eight years after the discovery of anesthesia. Six hundred sets of questionnaires were sent to practitioners, 400 of which were directed to obstetricians, and 200 went to country practitioners in Missouri and Kansas. Two hundred sixty-two responses were received, some included detailed personal descriptions of the physicians’ impressions of anesthesia. Todd also consulted contemporary literature on the subject for this study. He concludes that the use of anesthetics during labor works excellently and will continue to increase in use.
