ABSTRACT

A search for information about early anaesthetics administered in Papua New Guinea has revealed that an ether or chloroform anaesthetic was given, probably for a retained placenta, at Port Hunter on December 9, 1880. The anaesthetist or anaesthetic assistant was the Reverend George Brown, a Wesleyan Methodist missionary.
