ARS. HYDROG. Arseniuretted Hydrogen Gas. Noack and Trinks. To prepare the Gas for medicinal purposes, mix equal parts of Arsenic and Tin or Zinc with Muriatic-acid in a gas-resort; warm the mixture gently; by passing it through boiled water, a series of attenuations may be made and the Gas may be administered by olfaction.
The Gas is strongly absorbed by the Oil of Turpentine, which is thickened by the Gas, and deposits white crystals; the Oil of Turpentine might, perhaps, prove an antidote to the Gas.
