Medicines on board the ship included Creosote used for severe vomiting and for toothaches, Spirit of Chloroform used to relieve stomach pain and flatulence and Lead and Opium Pills useful for diarrhoea and stomach and bowel bleeding, contain one grain of opium.

The crew surgery was located on C- deck under the forecastle in the bow of the ship.

During the final moments of titanic’s demise Dr. Henry William Frauenthal who was the ships orthopaedic surgeon made a dramatic escape by jumping from the deck into lifeboat number 5, he landed on a first class passenger Mrs Annie May Stengel breaking two of her ribs and knocking her unconscious, Despite this Mrs Stengel survived the ordeal and was taken on board the Carpathia along with Dr Frauenthal and other survivors.
