This manual discusses the chemical composition of the blood, acidosis and alkalosis, variations of the blood sugar in health and disease, changes of the blood constituents in nephritis, tetany, rickets, gout, and in certain other conditions, such as anoxemia.

To these discussions are added methods for determining the nonprotein nitrogen constituents of the blood, the chlorids, the carbon dioxid combining power of the plasma, the phosphate and calcium content.

Although the methods given are excellent and the subject matter is well presented, most of these are contained in other more comprehensive laboratory guides.
