This book is divided into three sections. The first discusses the physiology of the circulation in a comprehensive manner, bringing the subject up to date. The second section discusses the graphic and instrumental methods used in the study of the phenomena of the circulation, describing in detail the string galvanometer and other modern and approved methods. The third section discusses the pathologic conditions of the circulation, and tries whenever possible to correlate them with similar conditions produced experimentally. The author consistently explains these diseased conditions by the existing pathologic physiology. Although the work is somewhat technical and presupposes a good general knowledge of physiology, it should prove of value to the physiologist and the clinician desirous of being conversant with modern ideas of the circulatory disorders. The value of the work is enhanced by the illustrations, and the bibliography at the end of each chapter.
