Page iii - THE HALF-YEARLY ABSTRACT OF THE MEDICAL SCIENCES. Being a Digest of the Contents of the principal British and Continental Medical Works; together with a Critical Report of the Progress of' Medicine and the Collateral Sciences.
Page 315 - ... the case of a young man who had poisoned himself with opium. While he was lying in a hopeless state of coma, four hours before death, a hot iron was held on the outside of the hipjoint; and half an hour after death, a red-hot poker was applied to three places on the inside of the arm. Vesication followed the burns in both instances; but those caused during life contained serum, and those formed after death, air.
Page 117 - ... peritoneum would have been opened without the least consideration, and supposedly as a matter of necessity ; that also the danger of the proceeding is much lessened if so delicate and easily inflamed a structure as the peritoneum is not meddled with. Experience has already amply shown the truth of this ; but, on the other hand, it cannot be denied that there are many good surgeons who look upon this mode of operating not only with great suspicion, but who consider it to be both unsatisfactory...
Page 53 - ... with one pulsation. In figures, the duration of these sounds and pauses by some have been represented thus, — the first sound occupies a third, the short pause a sixth, the second sound a sixth, and the long pause a third. Others have divided the whole period into four parts; of which the two first are occupied by the first sound, the third by the second sound, and the fourth by the pause. The duration, as well as the loudness, of the sounds, however, are very variable even in health, and are...
Page 118 - ... however, to which I have just alluded, induces me to think the central incision, as recommended by Dr. Crisp, preferable in all cases where the obstruction is seated in the small intestines. c. The time at which an operation should be undertaken.
Page 18 - ... no person suffering from catarrhal inflammation of the dermoid layer of the meatus, the membrana tympani, or of the mucous membrane of the tympanum, can be assured that disease is not being prolonged to the temporal bone, the brain, and its membranes ; and that any ordinary exciting cause, as an attack of fever or influenza, a blow on the head, &c., may not induce the appearance of acute symptoms, which, as a general rule, are speedily fatal.
Page 48 - ... there was some obstruction to the passage of air through the larynx. In breathing merely, there is little or no difficulty in these cases, as the individuals are capable of undergoing considerable exertion without very unusual signs of fatigue. The difficulty has appeared to me to be in the paralyzed condition of the muscles of the larynx, whose business it is to dilate the rima glottidis during the act of articulation.
Page 305 - That animal charcoal has the power of withdrawing, when used at a proper temperature and in sufficient quantity, most, if not all, known vegetable and animal poisonous principles, and certain mineral poisons, from their solutions. 2d. That given at the same time with, or shortly after these poisons have been swallowed, it prevents their deleterious action. 3d. That given in cases of poisoning, it can exert no injurious influence, but, on the other hand, promotes vomiting, entangles the poison, and...
Page 207 - The action of the nitrate of silver solution is not that of a stimulant, but rather that of a calmative or sedative. It acts chemically on the mucus, pus, or other albuminous fluids it comes in contact with, throws down a copious white precipitate, in the form of a molecular membrane, which defends for a time the tender mucous surface or irritable ulcer, and leaves the passage free for the acts of respiration. Hence the feeling of relief almost always occasioned ; that diminution of irritability...
Page 47 - When, on the other hand, there is perfect dulness over the lung, increased vocal resonance, and rusty sputum, then exudation blocks up the air-cells, and can only be got rid of by that exudation being transformed into pus; and excreted by the natural passages. In such a case, bleeding checks the vital powers necessary for these transformations, and, as a general rule, if the disease be not fatal, will delay the recovery. I believe...
