Like Mary Benbow, she was bled to alleviate these symptoms. When the cough continued and the pain in the back got worse, making it difficult for her to walk, she sought admission to the hospital. On admission she was found to be generally emaciated, anxious, her complexion sallow and with a pale-yellow tinge (symptoms that Taylor retrospectively thought to be typical of cancer). 35 Her pulse was frequent and rather small and soft. There was no swelling in the lower back, where the pain was most severe, but a tumour could be felt in the abdomen, which was apparently fixed to the vertebral column.

The tubes were first introduced through the mouth and subsequently through the nose, which kept them more safely outside the aseptic field. The ‘catheters’ were not produced for this purpose but purchased from a shopkeeper who dealt in rubber tubing of all sizes. Magill selected pieces that had a natural curve because they were stored in coils. Endotracheal intubation (inserting the tube deep into the trachea) proved useful during chest operations such as lobectomies or pneumonectomies, either to allow the application of a mix of air with an anaesthetic agent such as chloroform, nitrous oxide or by the 1930s cyclopropane (a gas that could be administered in a mixture with a higher proportion of oxygen, making it less likely that the patient suffered oxygen shortages), or just to keep the airways free of secretions by using the tube as a suction device.

Lilienthal recommended an X-ray examination to clarify extent and location of the disease. 38 This was not always necessary, however, Lilienthal argued, as the chest was going to be opened anyway, and opened widely, which would reveal conditions that could not have been predicted by any other means. Usually Lilienthal made a long incision on the patient’s back, along the seventh rib. He then removed small pieces of one or several ribs and opened the thorax with an instrument called a rib-spreader.
