Dr Patay's medical kit with complete set of emergency surgical instruments


Description

This medical kit of the French Society for the Relief of the Wounded belonged to Dr. Camille Patay (1840-1893). The case contains three large amputation knives, scalpels, scrapers, probes, trocars and needles, an amputation tourniquet, a saw, a drill bit, and a Garengeot spanner used for dental extraction. These tools give an insight into the work of the Loiret flying ambulances, which stayed as close as possible to the columns engaged in combat.
