Page 112 - If abnormal acids are present in the blood, these displace a proportionate amount of carbondioxide, and as the carbondioxide tension in the alveolar air bears a direct relation to that in the blood, it is evident that the carbondioxide in the alveolar air will vary likewise. A low carbondioxide tension of the alveolar air therefore indicates an acidosis.
Page 85 - ... with the increased metabolism previously noted" and further substantiated by the evidence set forth in this report." "It is not at all impossible that the degree of acidosis and the degree of metabolism may be at least approximately estimated in diabetes by a careful examination of the pulse-rate." "We commend to the attention of the physician the importance of the pulse-rate in diabetes and particularly the value of changes in the pulse-rate in the same patient during the progress of the disease.
Page 35 - During the yearpreceding the onset of the disease the patient developed rapidly both in height and weight. In February 1908, she showed weariness. Early in March, polydipsia, polyuria, and polyphagia were present, and sugar was demonstrated in the urine.
