A valuable textbook for teaching the art of bandaging. Numerous good photographs show clearly each step in the application of bandages to the injured parts of the body. Triangular and roller bandages are thoroughly described. It is regretted that so little mention is made of the use of adhesive bandages, since they enjoy wide use in this country. The sections on shock and first aid in hemorrhage are given in the briefest outline. Mention of the elementary physiology involved would have been both more instructive and more interesting reading. The section on first aid to fractures contains no information on the use of splints, particularly on the improvisation of splints from materials at hand. Photographs showing how to lift patients to a stretcher and the moving of patients are welcomed additions to the new edition.
