To the average student of medicine, the term vasomotor system conveys ideas that are more or less vague. To one desiring more exact information, this monograph will be extremely helpful in explaining the obscurities of the complicated actions by which blood vessels undergo changes in diameter. There are discussed the structure of the vessels, the vasomotor nerves, vasomotor reflexes, the capillaries, veins, chemical action on arterioles, hemorrhage and shock. The acknowledged position of the author as a learned teacher, writer and investigator assures one of an authoritative and scientific treatment of the subject.
