Página 430 - Pharmacopoeia, arranged in Classes according to their Action, with their Composition and Doses. By a Practising Physician.
Página 403 - The pseudoscope being directed to an object, and adjusted so that the object shall appear of its proper size and at its usual distance, the distances of all other objects are inverted ; all nearer objects appear more distant, and all more distant objects nearer. The conversion of relief of an object consists in the transposition of the distances of the points which compose it. With the pseudoscope we have a glance, as it were, into another visible world, in which external objects and our internal...
Página 194 - ... putrefaction of organic matter, and diffused in the atmosphere. We may admit that the electrical discharges which occur incessantly in different parts of the atmosphere, and determine there the formation of ozone, purify the air by ridding it of oxidizable miasmata. At the same time that these are destroyed by ozone, the organic miasmata cause its own disappearance, and prevent dangerous accumulation of it. The opinion that storms purify the air may not be without foundation, as a large quantity...
Página 144 - I attribute to two things — namely, avoiding all undue and useless handling, and performing the operation early. My decided impression is, that the reason why the operation is so frequently followed by death, instead of being one of the most successful of the great operations of surgery, is, too great delay in resorting to an operation, and the undue and injurious use of the taxis, even after its adoption has proved unavailing.
Página 121 - The patient died at the end of twenty-two hours ; and, for some time previous to his death, he breathed at very long intervals, the pulse being weak and the countenance livid. At last there were not more than five or six inspirations in a minute. Nevertheless, when the ball of a thermometer was placed between the scrotum and the thigh, the mercury rose to 111° of Fahrenheit's scale. Immediately after death, the temperature was examined in the same manner, and found to be still the same.
Página 118 - ... future observations may, perhaps, enable us to refer it to some more general principle. We have evidence, that, when the brain ceases to exercise its functions, although those of the heart and lungs continue to be performed, the animal loses the power of generating heat. It would, however, be absurd to argue from this fact, that the chemical changes of the blood in the lungs are in no way necessary to the production of heat, since we know of no instance in which it continues to take place after...
Página 387 - All causes are material causes." " In material conditions I find the origin of all religions, all philosophies, all opinions, all virtues, all ' spiritual conditions and influences,' in the same manner that I find the origin of all diseases and of all insanities in material conditions and causes.
Página 390 - Force constitute the connecting link between the two ; and it is difficult to see that the dynamical agency which we term Will is more removed from Nerve-force, on the one hand, than Nerve-force is removed from Motor force on the other. Each, in giving origin to the next, is itself expended, or ceases to exist as such; and each bears, in its own intensity, a precise relation to that of its antecedent and its consequent.
Página 163 - MRS. GODFREY. ON THE NATURE, PREVENTION, TREATMENT, AND CURE OF SPINAL CURVATURES and DEFORMITIES of the CHEST and LIMBS, without ARTIFICIAL SUPPORTS or any MECHANICAL APPLIANCES. Third Edition, Revised and Enlarged. 8vo. cloth, 5s. DR. GORDON, MD, CB CHINA, FROM A MEDICAL POINT OF VIEW, IN 1860 AND 1861; With a Chapter on Nagasaki as a Sanatarium.
Página 412 - In the first case, we should not save our patient, but perhaps accelerate her death, and bring discredit on the operation ; while, in the other, we should sacrifice a pregnancy that might have gone on to the full time. It is, therefore, the intermediate period that should be chosen, and this is characterized by the following signs: 1. Almost incessant vomiting, by which all alimentary substances, and sometimes the smallest drop of water, are rejected. 2. Wasting and debility, which condemn the patient...
