Abstract

To the Editor:  —My attention has been called to a passage in the textbook "Case Histories in Obstetrics" by DeNormandie in which the author, in a discussion of the technic of normal pregnancy, and in the conduct of case 13, points out the utilization of the scalp circulation in the visible fetal head as an index of the condition of the fetal heart. This comment was unknown to me at the time I sent in my clinical note, which appeared in The Journal, June 29. Nevertheless, I consider this sign of sufficient value to warrant the reemphasis it may have received.
