This book is designed for nurses at the beginning of their professional careers. It aims to be a general introduction to the study of disease. The first portion of the book deals with general principles, including a chapter on the living body and one on the nature and cause of disease. The second portion deals with the organs and their diseases, namely diseases of the heart, diseases of the lungs, diseases of the urinary system and the like. The final chapter is on practical applications—the prevention of disease, the principles of the treatment, the nurses of the laboratory. The author is a well known pathologist, and the book should be extremely useful for the purpose for which it is intended.
