This book is more than a series of abstracts from literature for the year, as the editor's personal experience and opinions are given in numerous editorial comments. Scopolamin-morphin anesthesia receives considerable attention, the editor expressing the view that the need of anesthesia in obstetrics is overestimated and stating that he prefers chloroform and ether as more under the control of the attendant. The danger of morphinization of the new-born child is emphasized. Attention is called to the danger from the ordinary methods of resuscitation of asphyxiated children, and suggestions are given by the editor for safer and milder methods.
