An intubation case for adults.

An Intubation Case

Intended for use with adults, this intubation case was originally owned by Jacob Solis-Cohen, MD (1838-1927). Solis-Cohen was a pioneer in laryngeal surgery and Lecturer on Laryngology and Diseases of the Chest at Jefferson Medical College from 1867-1927. The intubation case was later used by his son, Meyer Solis-Cohen, MD.

The white label reads:

"Please clean these tubes with boiling water and disinfectant (preferably 4% formaldehyde), then wipe out inside of tubes with piece of clean muslin placed over wire to prevent blood remaining in tubes or instruments rusting." [Signed] J. Solis Cohen
