Paul's materia medica for nurses is practical in that it deals chiefly with the indications and contraindications for the various drugs, and gives their doses. Part IV, on the "Newer Medicinal Agents," as it deals with the new synthetics, the use of which is not clearly defined, might well have been omitted. Part V, "Practical Therapeutics," deals with hydrotherapy, including baths, gastric lavage, enteroclysis and hypodermoclysis; hypodermic medication; antiseptics and disinfectants; disinfection; topical medication, including application of heat, stupes, poultices, cupping, counterirritation and rectal alimentation; antitoxins and serums.
