The Davidson Pneumothorax device in original case

To treat a pneumothorax

The Davidson Pneumothorax device was patented in 1933 by Louis R. Davidson, a tuberculosis specialist.
Manufactured by J. Sklar Manufacturing Company.
Founded in 1892 in Brooklyn and moved to Long Island City around 1940, sold to 1985
It was used for the treatment of tuberculosis caused by an artificial pneumothorax (collapse of the lung by direct insertion of air in the chest cavity). So the lungs could heal faster by having them rest.
Was used for the treatment of tuberculosis until the BCG vaccine became popular in the middle of 1940.
Device consists of a five-way valve on which the in-and outlet hose, pressure gauge, reservoirs and an operational needle are connected.
The reservoirs can move and are at the bottom so that the air can be sucked away as needed.
It is a portable device controlled by a physician at the patient's home, in the doctor’s office or in the hospital.
