By simply raising both handles at the same time, the pumps were filled with their respective fluids and by allowing them passively to descend all risks and violence were avoided, and the fluids were allowed to flow into their appropriate blood=

Precautions to be used
The operation of injecting the blood-vessels was, by this means made a very gradual one, and could be spread over a considerable time, without fatigue or provoking sudden muscular efforts on the part of the operator. Occasionally the handler of the pumps were supported so as to allow the capillary blood vessels to contract by their elasticity and thus to press onward the fluid already injected into them and afterwards to afford
