II. MODERN VIEWS OF AND METHODS OF STUDYING DISEASES OF THE CIRCULATION
In Part I of this paper the attempt has been made to present in the briefest possible form the fact that we owe our knowledge of the circulation primarily to animal experimentation. This paper has been written for the purpose of showing the practical bearings of the knowledge so gained on our understanding of certain phases of human pathology.There could be no more emphatic way of bringing home to the practicing physician the practical results, so far as the cardiovascular system is concerned, that have accrued through the application to human pathology of the results of experiments on animals than to transcribe in full for his consideration the parts dealing with disease of the blood-vessel system, first, from some work that was standard before the Renaissance, i. e., before the importance of animal experimentation was fully realized
