Page 1299 - At the same time there has been a tremendous increase in the number of undergraduate medical students, thus making undergraduate teaching by the reduced faculty personnel excessively burdensome.
Page 502 - If only a few bubbles are liberated, a second addition of 5 to 10 mgm. of potassium nitrate will not cause a further liberation of bubbles, and the oxidation of the organic matter is complete. If the second addition of nitrate causes a further oxidation, repeated additions of 5 to 10 mgm.
Page 1255 - ... WJ Mayo has said: The real job of the medical profession is the extension of knowledge of what the medicine of today is doing and can do in the future, and this must be done by collective effort. Now failures as a profession are the failures of individualism. Medicine's place is fixed by its service to mankind. If we fail to measure up to our opportunity, it means state medicine, political mediocrity and loss of professional ideals. Dr. Wells Teachnor, in his presidential address before the Ohio...

Page 277 - The central nervous system is influencing, to a great extent, visceral functions that existed long before its development. Attempts at retroactive controls always have many exceptions in law, and are physiologically troublesome in man. The nervous system in man weighs as much as the liver and has as many or even more possibilities of functional disturbances, because it is less stable in its functions. The only difference is that the bile function can be seen, and disturbed thoughts cannot be seen—...
Page 336 - Exophthalmic goitres occur at any age, but most often between the ages of 20 and 40. The condition is best treated surgically and the best results are obtained in patients operated on early in the course of the disease before marked damage has been done to the vital organs. Many patients require one or two ligations of the superior thyroid vessels preliminary to thyroidectomy in order to make thyroidectomy a safer procedure. If care is exercised in selecting the type of operation which should be...
Page 278 - ... psychic disturbances are generated in her reproductive organs. After all, it is the mental and not the physical which controls our estimate of man. To one who has had occasion to observe the results of surgical operations on the reproductive organs of women, the truth of these remarks is self-evident. Today I consider every surgical disease of the generative organs of women with their future nervous condition in mind, as well as the physical state which is desired. In many instances there is...
Page 277 - ... intangible changes in the nervous system which follow the operation. Physical cure is sometimes purchased at the price of nervous instability ; and we speak wisely of neurasthenia, psychosis, neurosis and hysteria. Often the same physical cure could have been obtained without creating the disturbances so troublesome to the patient, the family and friends. Christian ( ?) science (?) and similar cults go to the other extreme, refusing to recognize the physical and considering only the psychic....
Page 501 - If the large crucible is not heated sufficiently, the destruction of organic matter will not be complete. However, there is a wide range of temperature between the two limits, and after a little experience no difficulty is encountered. When the sodium hydroxid is first heated in the presence of water, considerable foaming is produced.
Page 278 - The small cystic ovary especially has been th° victim, not of the surgeon, but of the operator. Following this type of operations it will be found that a group of patients return complaining of what they have been told are adhesions, but without mechanical signs. I have seen a number of patients who have, been operated on and reoperated on, with only temporary success, for adhesions that did not produce mechanical symptoms. I have little faith in the common belief that adhesions located by the patient,...
