This monograph is based on an analyses of 20 clinical cases and experiments on 17 rabbits. The author's conclusions fall in line with the generally accepted point of view. He describes the clinical, roentgenographic and electrocardiographic alterations in the heart in anemia, and the changes induced in rabbits by hemorrhage as regards both the electrocardiogram and the microscopic appearance of the heart post mortem. He attributes the changes in the heart as primarily due to coronary insufficiency and submits a table subdividing the various varieties of coronary insufficiency to be encountered clinically on a systematic basis and places anemias in their proper location. Throughout this well documented report the author's findings are intelligently integrated with the findings in the literature. References are made to two hundred and seventy-three previous publications in the world's literature. This is a meritorious contribution to the subject in the Spanish language.
