Origin[edit | edit source]
Hua Tuo (c. 140–208), courtesy name Yuanhua, was an ancient Chinese physician who lived in the late Eastern Han Dynasty. The historical texts Records of the Three Kingdoms and Book of the Later Han record Hua as the first person in China to use anaesthesia during surgery. He used a general anaesthetic combining wine with a herbal concoction called máfèisàn (麻沸散, lit. "cannabis boil powder"). Besides being respected for expertise in surgery and anaesthesia, Hua Tuo was famous for his abilities in acupuncture, moxibustion, herbal medicine, and medical Daoyin exercises. He developed the Wuqinxi (Wade–Giles: Wu-chin-hsi; 五禽戲; lit. "Exercise of the Five Animals") from studying movements of the tiger, deer, bear, ape, and crane.

Usage[edit | edit source]
This artifact was in Warehouse 13's Inventory. Was going to be used along with Hippocrates' Fibula to heal Myka of her cancer.
During the events of Endless Terror, Pete finds out that Myka's tumor was benign. Feeling used, Pete vowed to bring down Paracelsus himself and using the Scalpel to incapacitate him by hitting Paracelsus in the leg. According to a deleted scene, this removed the anti-Bronzing chemicals Paracelsus had ingested, thus allowing him to be Bronzed.
