One of the founders of the National (later International) Anesthesia Research Society, Elmer Isaac “Ira” McKesson (1881 to 1935, left) led a trio of physician-anesthetists from Toledo, Ohio, who promoted unsupplemented nitrous oxide-oxygen anesthesia. Besides brief use of 100% laughing gas at anesthetic induction (“primary saturation”), the Toledo trio promoted another brief blast of pure laughing gas for muscle relaxation of already-anesthetized patients (“secondary saturation”). After McKesson died, his partner Frederick W. Clement, M.D., saturated readers with McKessonalia in three editions of Nitrous Oxide-Oxygen Anesthesia, all published three or more years after brain lesions were associated with hypoxic nitrous oxide techniques. In 1953 the youngest of the Toledo trio, Kenneth C. McCarthy, M.D., published a red-covered “secondary saturation” of McKesson “Anesthesia Papers” (middle), formally titled (right) as Some Papers on Nitrous Oxide-Oxygen Anesthesia.
