Pagina 209 - The patient is thus exposed to the influence of three agents, heated air, common steam, and the vapour of mercury, which is thus applied to the whole surface of the body, in a moist state. After the patient has remaine'd in the bath from five to ten minutes, perspiration generally commences, and by the end of twenty or thirty minutes, beyond which I do not prolong the bath, it is generally excessive.
Pagina 193 - As long as the action is incomplete, there will be seen, after rest, at the line of contact, a darker ring. When this no longer appears, the chloroform may be drawn off, and for greater security once more acted on by a quarter of its volume of the acid, which should now remain colourless.
Pagina 196 - Then is it, that the muscles acting with one accord, set at nought the extending power, and complete the work of reduction, in defiance of all the agents employed at the moment to prevent it. I consider that the muscles are the immediate agents of reduction, and not the surgeon, whose entire duty consists, in placing the bone in a position, to give them the opportunity of displaying this harmony of action, and of exercising a power, even beyond that of the mechanical agents of extension.
Pagina 35 - ... by way of second course. Liquids should be taken, not at the meal, but half an hour after, so as not to impede the action of the gastric juice upon the mass. Here should end the solid feeding for the day; no second dinner or supper should follow, nor, indeed, any more meals be taken sitting down. A piece of biscuit and a glass of water can be taken standing up, if faintness is experienced ; a cup of gruel or roast apple before going to bed.
Pagina 193 - The chloroform, having been tested as above, and found more or less impure, is to be agitated with oil of vitriol (half its volume will be sufficient), and allowed to remain in contact with the acid, of course in a clean, dry, stoppered bottle, and with occasional agitation till the acid no longer becomes darker in colour. As long as the action is incomplete, there will be seen, after rest, at the line of contact, a darker ring.
Pagina 277 - ... discomfort to the patient and retardation of the healing. I suspect that the many instances of disappointment from this cause have led to the general neglect of the process of scabbing in the treatment of wounds. The observance of perfect rest, and of the other means for warding off inflammation, will...
Pagina 146 - ... uterus, which must sooner or later take place. But, while I do not advocate the use of this drug under the circumstances related, I can speak loudly in its praise after the abortion has occurred, especially if such have been attended with a large loss of blood : it will allay excitement, tranquillise the circulation, and procure sleep.
Pagina 208 - Surgeon to the Queen's Hospital, Birmingham. THE MODERN TREATMENT OF SYPHILITIC DISEASES, BOTH PRIMARY AND SECONDARY; comprising the Treatment of Constitutional and Confirmed Syphilis, by a safe and successful method.
Pagina 291 - Achilles-tendon and the tendons of the anterior and posterior tibial muscles of a child nine months old, in whom, when it was five months old, all these tendons were divided for the cure of congenital varus. The child had perfect use of its feet after the operation, and, when it died, no trace of the division of any of the tendons could be discerned even with microscopic aid. In the instances of divided human tendons, less retraction, I have already said, takes place than in those of lower animals....
