Each month we visit Dr. Blaufox’s Museum of Historical Medical Artifacts to take a look back at the medical equipment that cleared the way for what patients encounter in doctors’ offices and operating rooms of today. Some equipment may be recognizable, while other inventions featured here have since become obsolete or have had their usefulness discredited.

Description: Blond wood box with wooden partitions contains a stainless steel clamp-shaped device to attach to a table, an upright t-shaped stand which screws into this labeled Dr. Koster Apparatus with one end labeled “Don” the other “Rec.” Also contains three 2 ml syringes with spring loaded plungers, steel fittings, extra fittings, tubing. Syringes have a picture of a barber pole with “x” emblem. The top of the “t” is open as are the arms. The top is also labeled “Don” so there was a flow of blood from the donor to the recipient using the “t” as the pathway.
