1900. Excerpt: ... and in his hands this treatment certainly would
seem to have been most successful. Dr. Jardine injects one to two
pints of sterilised water at a temperature of 100 F, to which he
adds 5i of salt containing one part of potassium bicarbonate and
three parts of sodium chloride. The immediate effects of such
treatment are very striking, the urinary secretion increasing
enormously, the pulse slowing down 20 or 30 beats, and
consciousness being quickly regained. AMERICAN POCKET MEDICAL
DICTIONARY. The exhaustion of a large edition of this book in a
period of six months, is a certain sign that it satisfactorily
meets a want of the profession. At all events it cannot be accused
of incompleteness, for it contains the definitions of no less than
26,000 words connected with medicine and the kindred sciences. The
dictionary also includes a certain number of tables of matters
which it is often difficult to retain in the memory, such as lists
and anatomical relations, etc., of the muscles, arteries, and
nerves. We may further add that the printing is small enough to
enable all this material to be compressed into such space that the
book can be comfortably carried in the pocket. A MANUAL OF MODERN
GASTRIC METHODS. The object of this book is to furnish a clear
practical account of the different methods which have lately come
into use for dealing with gastric conditions. There is a short
chapter on Digestion, which is written rather with the view of
serving as a text than to supply any special information. The next
chapter deals with test meals and the withrawal of the gastric
contents. American Pocket Medical Dictionary. Edited by W. A.
