To the Editor:
—In my article in The Journal Sept. 22, 1923, page 999, on "Causative Factors and Treatment of Chronic Empyema," it is stated that "sodium hypochlorite solution" was employed. The solution employed was "Surgical Solution of Chlorinated Soda N. N. R." (Solution Chlorinated Soda, Carrel-Dakin). It was prepared by diluting "Hyclorite" with seven volumes (7 to 1) of water. The strongly alkaline solution of chlorinated soda U. S. P. is too irritating for the purposes I described.
