IN DISCUSSING this subject, which was suggested to me by your President. Dr. Isabella C. Herb, I am uncertain as to how generally local anesthesia is combined with gas-oxygen in practice. I trust that this will not be an old story to the majority of you. A fact that, however, encourages me in presenting this matter is that in seeing Cesarean sections done in several of our Eastern centers, this combined technic of anesthesia was not used.
