This is a concise and practical presentation of the subject, written especially for nurses but equally valuable for the use of interns. The first chapter contains a sufficiently comprehensive terminology. The second details the equipment and technic of the "plaster room"; splints, their uses and their application are well illustrated. The chapter on operative technic is excellent. The common and many of the uncommon orthopedic conditions are described in a terse and clear manner. The final chapter, on heliotherapy, is well worth reading. The book is highly satisfactory.
