This word signifies a collection of instruments, &c., for any operation whatever. (F.) Appareil. In Surgery, it means the methodical arrangement of all the instruments and objects necessary for an operation or dressing. By extension, the French give the name Appareil, Capsa chirurgica, to the case or drawers in which the apparatus is arranged. Apparatus has likewise been applied to the different modes of operating for the stone. See Lithotomy. In Physiology, Apparatus, (F.) Appareil, is applied to a collection of organs, all of which work towards the same end. A system of organs comprehends all those formed of a similar texture. An apparatus often comprehends organs of very different nature. In the former, there is analogy of structure; in the latter, analogy of function.
