This procedure, at the present time, is widely employedas a substitute for tracheotomy in the treatment of dyspnoeadue to inflammatory affections of the larynx or trachea, orstenosis of the larynx ; it consists in the introduction of ametallic or hard-rubber tube into the larynx, which isallowed to remain in place for a few days. This oper-ation has been reintroduced to the profession by the lateDr. ODwyer, of New York, who devised a set of in-genious instruments for the purpose of laryngeal intu-bation. The instruments required are a mouth-gag (Fig. 485), INTUBATION OF THE LARYNX. 579 Fig. 485.. Mouth-gag.Fig. 486
