The first part of this work is devoted to a discussion of hemorrhage and its management. The authors review the various hemorrhages that may occur in the field of otorhinolaryngology. These are considered as surgical, immediate or delayed; medical or spontaneous and the hemorrhagic diatheses. All the classic methods of meeting these emergencies are described in detail. The authors are almost dogmatic in their insistence that when simple methods fail the physician should not temporize but resort to blood transfusion; the earlier this is employed the less the danger encountered and the more satisfactory the results obtained. Under the heading of hemorrhagic diatheses are grouped the hemophilias, the more or less vicarious hemorrhages and acquired blood dyscrasias.
