Abstract

Last May I delivered an address in Buffalo, N. Y., before the "Association of Military Surgeons" of the United States, on "Asepsis in Military Service." This address printed in the transactions of that society and also in our own Journal, Nos. 4 and 5, Vol. 26 (January 25 and February 1, 1896), considers at length the principles of sterilization, and gives at the same time a number of practical points just as applicable in operations in private practice as in operations in military service, for which reason I take the liberty to refer you to that for details.

With regard to the mechanical and chemic phases of surgical sterilization I have not much to add to or take from what I said last year. Supported by further experience I can this year more strongly than last recommend the 1 to 2 per cent. solutions of lysol at 120 degrees F.
