This book is intended primarily, the preface states, for the general practitioner. It discusses in considerable detail the newer investigations and theories concerned with adequate and failing circulation. The methods of determining the state of the circulation by clinical and laboratory means are extensively described. Since it is always helpful to understand the physiologic process causing a particular clinical picture, this volume should be of great value to practicing physicians. Because of its length and extensive citations of original authorities, it probably will be found more useful as a reference book than as one that will be read from cover to cover.
