Explanation: I take this to mean an anesthetic applied through a mask fitted over the throat (larynx) and held with an elastic band.
Makes sense to me, as it would save administering a full anaesthetic, if only a repositioning of plaster is involved - a short sharp knock out is all that's required?
Could Maskennarkose = Narkosemaske? If so:
(Lexikon Medizin - Urban und Schwarzenberg Verlag: Narkosemaske: Atemmaske fuer Inhalationsnarkose; Kunstmaske mit elast. Abdichtungsrand u. ....E. anesthesia mask)
