from The New York Medical Journal, Vol. 69, 1899

“. . . one of the most difficult problems to solve is that of retention of applications in situ, and the prevention of injurious scratching and rubbing, especially at night. I have devised for the purpose of retaining dressings upon the head and face a little cap with a mask attached which I now show you.” (page 435)
