Accidents Affecting the Circulatory System

This brochure may be considered a continuation of that published in 1929. The data collected include the accidents in all the cities, or communes, of more than 20,000 inhabitants (forty-six in all). In these communes there were 28,227 accidents affecting the circulatory system, 262 of which had fatal results, while 1,748 persons received grave, and 5,370 slight, wounds.
