Note 11: Dr. Peter J. Gibbons (1861-1925), Inventor of the Gibbons Resuscitator, applied for permission to experiment upon convicts executed by electricity in the New York State prisons with an apparatus designed to restore animation, has brought his apparatus to New York in order to place it in the hands of New York physicians for experiment.

The apparatus is designed to resuscitate persons who have undergone electrical shock, taken poison, been long immersed in water, or have suffered from a similar misadventure. To resuscitate it is necessary simply to restore breathing.

Dr. Gibbons's device is a simple double bellows, shown in the accompanying engraving. The end of the long tube is inserted in the mouth of the patient or, if this be closed, in an opening made in the throat. The patient's nose is closed, and when the handle of the bellows is raised the air rushes from the patient's lungs into one apartment of the bellows. Simultaneously the other apartment is filled with fresh air through a tube on the reverse side. This air is forced into the lungs by the compression of the handles.

Dr. Gibbons says that he has experimented on numbers of animals shocked by electricity, poisoned and affected by various ills of that kind with great success during the past eight years. He also claims that a large percentage of deaths from electricity are not instantaneous, and could be averted by using his invention. The voltage necessary to kill is not a fixed quantity.

In State executions from 1,200 to 1,800 volts are used, whereas, he says, he is acquainted with one case where a man operating a dynamo received a shock of 4,600 volts, and was resuscitated by ordinary methods after seven minutes. In another case Dr. Gibbons's own assistant, a Mr. Greenwood, received 1,500 volts and was restored. D'Arsonval reports a case where a man reeceivd 5,000 volts and was resuscitated after half an hour
