It is stated that this book is based on the English edition of Lenzmann's "Emergencies," which appeared in 1914, but that the text has been entirely rewritten and the subject-matter revised so extensively that it is practically a new work representative of the teaching of standard British authorities on medical, surgical and obstetric emergencies. Each topic is discussed in its entirety: as to the etiology, symptoms, pathology, diagnosis and treatment. The advice given is in accordance with accepted practice, and only well known and accepted remedial agents are recommended. Its value would be greater if the subject-matter were more condensed, less discursive and, therefore, more quickly available when an emergency arises.
