As stated in the preface, the author lays no claim to completeness, but states that the book "is rather of the nature of an essay based on an experience gained during some eight years' immediate association with the surgical side of St. Thomas Hospital." A number of the emergencies more frequently encountered are discussed, among them being hemorrhage, burns scalds, fractures, acute infective and abdominal diseases, injuries of the abdomen, strangulated hernia, respiratory obstruction, injuries of the neck, chest, nervous system, eye and ear. Avoiding unnecessary details, the author has confined himself to the essential points of emergency treatment.
