This volume embraces in small space the essential features concerning the prognosis and therapy of diseases of the heart. Most of what is written is to be found in the standard works on practice or in the special works on heart disease. While there is little of the new, the old and tried are clearly set forth, systematically arranged in nine chapters dealing with such topics as aortic disease, mitral and tricuspid disease, myocarditis, angina pectoris, functional affections and heart strain, paroxysmal tachycardia and Stokes-Adams disease, pericarditis, the treatment of special symptoms. This grouping makes for ease of reference. Little is to be found concerning the aids to prognosis and the hints as to treatment afforded by the galvanometer.
