Pagina 90 - Allow me to take this opportunity to tender you my most cordial thanks for having, by your brilliant researches, demonstrated to me the truth of the germ theory of putrefaction, and thus furnished me with the principle upon which alone the antiseptic system can be carried out.
Pagina 26 - In the course of an extended investigation into the nature of inflammation, and the healthy and morbid conditions of the blood in relation to it, I arrived several years ago at the conclusion that the essential cause of suppuration in wounds is decomposition, brought about by the influence of the atmosphere upon blood or serum retained within them, and, in the case of contused wounds, upon portions of tissue destroyed by the violence of the injury.
Pagina 40 - It appears, then, that by applying a ligature of animal tissue antiseptically upon an artery, whether tightly or gently, we virtually surround it with a ring of living tissue, and strengthen the vessel where we obstruct it.
Pagina 55 - Can such things be, And overcome us like a summer's cloud, Without our special wonder?
Pagina 47 - ... the improved health and satisfactory condition of the hospital, which has been as marked in the medical as in the surgical department, is mainly attributable to the better ventilation, the improved dietary, and the excellent nursing, to which the directors have given so much attention of late years.
Pagina 15 - Our other plagues were home-bred, and part of ourselves, as it were; we had a habit of looking on them with a fatal indifference, indeed, inasmuch as it led us to believe that they could be effectually subdued. But the cholera was something outlandish, unknown, monstruous [sic]; its tremendous ravages, so long foreseen and feared, so little to be explained, its insidious march over whole continents, its apparent defiance of all the known and conventional precautions against the spread of epidemic...
Pagina 80 - ... altogether similar when the matter containing Bacilli, by coming into contact with a wounded surface, gives rise to splenic fever and the appearance of such organisms all through the body. The old notion about the excessive self-multiplication of the original contagium is probably altogether erroneous. Thus all the distinctive positions of those who advocate a belief in the so-called ' germ theory of disease,' or rely upon the exclusive doctrine of a 'contagium vivum,' seem to be absolutely broken...
Pagina 84 - Cambridge ten years hence, some one may be able to record the discovery of the appropriate ' vaccine ' for measles, scarlet fever,* and other acute specific diseases of the human subject. But even should nothing more be effected than what seems to be already on the point of attainment— the means of securing poultry from death by fowl-cholera, and cattle from the terribly destructive splenic fever — it must be admitted that we have an instance of a most valuable result from the much-reviled
Pagina 58 - I believe that cases of recovery frequently occur under other methods, or no methods, and that at least as much depends upon the age and reparative power of the patient, the amount of blood poison formed or absorbed, and the general conditions of the atmosphere as upon any system of treatment whatever. " I attach much importance, as I have said, to free drainage in dressing wounds, and when...
Pagina 107 - Lancet, amongst others, made itself the mouthpiece of the " howl of derision," a term by which one of Lister's devoted followers described this outbreak of the feeling of the London surgical world towards the Edinburgh professor. Mr. Lister was "like a man who in the excitement of enthusiasm raves at the false creations of his heat-oppressed brain " ; "he seems to have lost himself in infatuation...
