AANA J. 1999 Feb;67(1):33-4.

Alice Magaw and the great secret of open drop anesthesia.


With this issue of the AANA Journal, "Imagining in Time" begins an occasional series that will reprint historical articles written by early and pioneer nurse anesthetists. The purpose is to keep the past alive and stimulate research interest. A brief commentary will accompany each article and, whenever possible, a bibliography will be included. Appropriately, the series commences with the "Mother of Anesthesia," Alice Magaw, CRNA (1860-1928), who wrote five articles between 1899 and 1906. Featured is a reprint of Magaw's fifth article titled "A review of over fourteen thousand surgical anesthesias," which was published in a 1906 issue of Surgery, Gynecology and Obstetrics.
