As part of its opening festivities, Portugal’s Museum of Anesthesiology issued this attractive medallion. Depicting a Morton Ether Inhaler, the obverse (left) reads: “MUSEU DE ANESTESIOLOGIA/PORTUGAL.” Note the opening artistically designed into the inhaler for peering through the “broken globe” at the ether-laden sponge inside. The medallion’s reverse (right) reads: “INAUGURADO EM/19 OUTUBRO 1996/GALAMARES/SINTRA” (Portuguese for: “Inaugurated on 19 October 1996, Galamares, Sintra”). Anesthesiology readers who are touring Lisbon are certainly encouraged to visit Portugal’s Museum of Anesthesiology. (Copyright © the American Society of Anesthesiologists, Inc.)
