The revision for this edition has entailed the omission of older procedures and the addition of new methods of treatment. The net result is somewhat longer than the previous edition, although it does not depart from the aim to present the subject simply for the medical student and general practitioner. The book embraces methods of examination, descriptions and illustrations of instruments, technic for the use of applications and the performance of minor operations. The section of formulas is revised, especially the consideration of local anesthetics and biologic products. The report of the Committee on Local Anesthetics of the American Medical Association has guided the rewritting of this subject.
