The examination of the Thoracic Viscera resulted as follows : — The Heart weighed eleven ounces. All the cavities were entirely empty except the right ventricle, in which a few shreds of soft, reddish, coagulated blood adhered to the internal surface. On the surface of the mitral valve there were several spots of fatty degeneration ; with this exception the cardiac valves were normal. The muscular tissue...
Page 416 - No intestinal adhesions were found other than those between the transverse colon and the liver, already mentioned. The abdominal cavity being now washed out as thoroughly as possible, a fruitless attempt was made to obtain some indication of the position of the bullet before making any further incision. By pushing the intestines aside, the extremity of the catheter, •which had been passed into the wound, could be felt between the peritoneum and the right iliac fascia; but it had evidently doubled...
Page 414 - That after the abdom• inal cavity was opened the position of the bullet should be ascertained, if possible, before making any further incision ; and that, finally, the thoracic viscera should be examined. This order of procedure was unanimously agreed to. The examination was then proceeded with, and the following external appearances were observed : — The body was considerably emaciated, but the face was much less wasted than the limbs. A preservative fluid had been injected by the embalmer,...

Suddenly and without any warning, she would make a long inspiration, with a slight crowing noise ; an attempt to exhale would be made, but without success ; another crowing inspiration followed by a forcible, but ineffectual effort to exhale ; and this would be repeated until the child became blue around the mouth, and sank into partial unconsciousness, when free respiration would take place, and the child would generally sink into a deep sleep. Frequently toward the close...
Page 372 - As- soon as the amelioration produced by coralia ceases, that is to say, at the end of four or five days at the most, it should be discontinued, and chelidonium majus administered, of the sixth dilution, three doses in twenty-four hours, and continued, unless there is a renewal of the violent spasmodic coughing-fits, or convulsions in little children, or spasms of the glottis (all of which circumstances would call for a return to coralia), until the evident transformation of hooping-cough into simple...
