This "Panárketon," or "Agenda Médica," is a sort of "greater" visiting list or physician's diary, aiming to encompass, in a book of pocket size, data to which the busy physician may turn in an emergency. Besides the usual lists of drugs, forms of poisoning, and tables of arteries and bones, there are offered a description of the Wassermann test, a summary of first aid medicine, surgery, obstetrics and ophthalmology; diet in various diseases, and even an outline of necropsy and embalming. As a mere aide-mémoire, a book of this kind may prove useful. It should not, however, be taken, as pointed out by by Dr. Pi Suñer in his introduction, as a substitute for thorough medical training.
