This is a practical handbook on the physical examination of the normal body. It is thorough, yet concise. As stated in the preface, the diagnosis of specific disease conditions has been avoided, mention of the abnormal being made here and there merely to emphasize certain procedures. The book is designed for the use of students, preparatory to the study of the pathologic body. It contains a section on blood pressure and the sphygmomanometer, and closes with a chapter on physical signs in the diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis. It will be of distinct aid to the beginner in physical diagnosis.
