Abstract

To the Editor:  —In The Journal, April 14, 1917, p. 1088, Cooke and Taussig call attention to certain abnormalities in auscultatory phenomena which they preface by stating that "it has doubtless been observed by others, but so far as we know there is no mention of it in the literature." I wish to put on record the fact that in the second edition of my book on "Blood Pressure," prepared in 1915 and printed in September, 1916, casual mention of the occasional absence of the second phase was made on page 97, while on page 320 a chart indicates this phenomenon and specific mention is made of it.
