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...
