Page 86 - On the other hand, the observation is made that "no regularity" is found "in either the minimum or maximum pulse-rates when individual " Benedict and Joslin, Carnegie Inst. Wash. Pub. No. 176, 1912, p. 85. PULSE-RATE IN DIABETES. 31 diabetics are compared with normal individuals, since some of the diabetic subjects show a minimum pulse-rate considerably lower than the average minimum pulse-rate of the normal subjects; and similarly, the normal individuals in some instances show a pulse-rate considerably...

Page 114 - 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 87 - ... 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.

Father died of pneumonia, mother and brother well. The past history included scarlet fever, dysentery at three years of age, measles, mumps, whooping-cough, chicken-pox, enuresis nocturna which ceased at the age of four years. (I have repeatedly observed this symptom in the early history of diabetic children.) Always a...
