Side 83 - That there is not sufficient evidence before the Profession to prove that any of the advocated remedies have power to prevent the heart becoming diseased. That in rheumatic fever the tendency is for the heart to become diseased during the first few days of the fever...
Side 85 - ... is to be attributed, not to the influence of the drugs, but to the natural course of the disease ; for the patients did not come under treatment until the rheumatic fever had been going on some days, and until the period when the heart was most liable to become diseased had passed over.
Side 86 - To regulate the temperature. To moderate excessive skin function by sponging the surface of the body. To allay pain, by placing the patient in an easy position, and sometimes by opiates. To sustain the organic nerve power by light diet, and occasionally by small doses of alcohol. To procure rest by the simplest means, especially avoiding such movements of the body as may excite the circulation. In fine, to place the patient in a physiological state of mean rest, if it may be so termed, of the nervous,...
Side 207 - It may be taken then as almost certain that the mortality of ovariotomy is but little affected by tapping — that the fact of a patient not having been tapped, or having been tapped very often, is by itself of little or no value in prognosis. I have stated elsewhere that such adhesions as are apt to follow tapping have no appreciable effect upon the mortality after ovariotomy...
Side 376 - The disease which has been described is distinct from the lardaceous or amyloid change on the one hand, and on the other, from that enlargement of the spleen and absorbent glands, which has been associated with the name of Dr.
Side 1 - Society deems it proper to state that the Society does not hold itself in any way responsible for the statements, reasonings, or opinions set forth in the various papers which, on grounds of general merit, are thought worthy of being published in its Transactions. REGULATIONS relative to the publication of the
Side 207 - ... recover; while, after tapping, sooner or later, they all die. But the very important distinction is overlooked between an operation which either cures or kills, and one which only fails to save life, or kills only under most exceptional circumstances. It is seldom that a surgeon is called upon to perform ovariotomy in order to save a patient from imminent death. But this does occasionally happen. Dr. Wiltshire and Dr. Watson have published a case, where a woman who was dying from bleeding into...
Side 4 - ... saw. It would appear that this operation has been actually performed with some degree of advantage, and I do not doubt that circumstances may occur to make it worth while to have recourse to it. But it is to be observed, at the same time, that all that can be thus accomplished is the removal of one portion of the disease, and that it is the largest portion of it, in the bone of the pelvis, which is necessarily allowed to remain. The operation cannot be performed without a certain degree of local...
Side 85 - Button's conclusions are as follows : — That when the patient's heart was healthy on admission into the hospital, it was very rare for it to become organically diseased while the patients were under treatment by mint water — or, in other words, when the rheumatic fever was allowed to run its natural course. That the evidence before the profession shows that the heart very rarely became diseased while...
Side 77 - The authors then endeavour to show that when the heart becomes diseased in rheumatic fever, it does so at an early stage of the disease ; and if it does not become diseased during the first week of the rheumatic fever, it rarely does so afterwards; and they give abstracts from twenty-two cases of rheumatic fever to demonstrate this. Drs. Gull and...
