A new exhibit titled “Celebrating 100 Years of Anesthesiology at Mayo Clinic” is now on display in the Plummer 12 Library in Rochester. The exhibit was curated by the W. Bruce Fye Center staff and focuses on the beginning of the Department of Anesthesiology, the individuals who helped develop it, and some of its initial impacts on the specialty of anesthesiology. 

The exhibit also features various tools and devices used by nurse anesthetists and anesthesiologists during the 20th century, including wire-mesh anesthesia masks, a wax model of an intravenous method of anesthesia, a Fluothane administering device, and different types of needles.

The exhibit is part of a rotating series open to Mayo staff, students, and volunteers. Visit the Plummer 12 Library to see the exhibit or browse the exhibit virtually on the W. Bruce Fye Center’s website.
