Page 563 - Pneumonia is a self-limited disease, and runs its course uninfluenced in any way by medicine. It can neither be aborted nor cut short by any known means at our command.
Page 728 - It makes its approach in so slow and insidious a manner that the patient can hardly fix a date to his earliest feeling of that languor which is shortly to become so extreme. The countenance gets pale, the whites of the eyes become pearly, the general frame flabby rather than wasted, the pulse perhaps large, but remarkably soft and compressible, and occasionally with a slight jerk, especially under...
Page 117 - DIPHTHERIA. -The patient should be placed in a good light, and, if a child, properly held. In cases where it is possible to get a good view of the throat, depress the tongue and rub the cotton swab gently, but freely ', against any visible exudate...
Page 500 - ... a sharp nose, hollow eyes, collapsed temples; the ears cold, contracted, and their lobes turned out: the skin about the forehead being rough, distended, and parched; the color of the whole face being green, black, livid, or lead-colored.
Page 564 - There is no specific treatment for pneumonia. The young practitioner may bear in mind that patients are more often damaged than helped by the promiscuous drugging which is still only too prevalent.
Page 185 - One fact well deserving our attention is this, that a child born of a mother who is without any obvious venereal symptoms, and which, without being exposed to any infection subsequent to its birth, shows this disease when a few weeks old, this child will infect the most healthy nurse, whether she suckle it or merely handle and dress it ; and yet this child is never known to infect its own mother, even though she suckle it while it has venereal ulcers of the lips and tongue.
Page 700 - ... arterio-sclerosis depends, in the first place, upon the quality of arterial tissue (vital rubber) which the individual has inherited, and secondly upon the amount of wear and tear to which he has subjected it That the former plays the most important role is shown in the cases in which arterio-selerosis sets in early in life in individuals in whom none of the recognized etiological factors can be found.
Page 68 - Communities in which vaccination and revaccination are thoroughly and systematically carried out are those in which smallpox has the fewest victims. On the other hand, communities in which vaccination and revaccination are persistently neglected are those in which epidemics are most prevalent.
Page 117 - In other cases, including those in which the exudate is confined to the larynx, avoiding the tongue, pass the swab far back, and rub it freely against the mucous membrane of the pharynx and tonsils. Without laying the swab down, withdraw the cotton plug from the culture tube, insert the swab, and rub that portion of it which has touched the exudate gently, but thoroughly back and forth all over the surface of the blood serum. Do' not push the swab into the blood serum, nor break the surface in any...
Page 510 - ... hours, she took 472 grains ; on the third day, 236 grains ; on the fourth day, 120 grains; on the fifth day, 54 grains; on the sixth day, 22 grains; on the seventh day, 8 grains, after which the treatment was suspended.
