This edition has been greatly enlarged, both by the revision and expansion of material given in the earlier editions and by the addition of several new chapters on asthma, syphilis, lead poisoning, anemia, endocrine disorders, preoperative and postoperative medical treatment and vaccine therapy.
The principles of treatment are briefly elucidated and are based largely on accepted scientific knowledge. Many useful tables and diets are included and the chapter on medication deserves particular commendation, in that it is devoted to the intelligent use of relatively few drugs, vaccines, gland extracts, serums, etc.
The book should prove particularly valuable to the practitioner when time is available for quick reference only.
