This volume presents the author's views on certain phases of diseases of the heart in an informal way designed to be supplementary to larger textbooks on the same subject. It is strictly clinical and covers especially well the general subjects of history taking and physical examination, prognosis and treatment in the manner used in bedside teaching without elaborate descriptions of diseases in true textbook style or meaningless case histories. It presupposes an organized knowledge on the part of the reader of the general field and hence is valuable, for the most part, as an aid to the medical student or practitioner, but not as a substitute for some other sources of more systematized knowledge of heart disease. It is strictly sound and conservative throughout and should be of value to any one at all interested who has not already had special training in the field.
