The publishers have prepared on heavy stock, reinforced with linen, an anatomic chart showing the skeleton of the human body in outline as well as the external surfaces and then in brilliant red have indicated the large arteries of the body, the points of pressure for application of pressure to prevent hemorrhage, the bones and other indications as to the points of application for tourniquets.
