Lectures on the Diseases of Infancy and Childhood

Blanchard and Lea, 1854 - 486 páginas
"The substance of a considerable part of the following Lectures was addressed to the pupils of the Middlesex Hospital in the summer of 1847, and the form of lectures appeared to me to present advantages which led me to retain it, when I determined to publish the results of my observations on Children's Diseases. These observations were made in the large field presented by the Children's Infirmary, which was first thrown open to me in the year 1839, by the kindness of my friend Dr. Willis, then physician to that institution; to which office I succeeded on his resignation in 1842. Very nearly 14,000 children have thus been brought under my notice during the past nine years; and I have kept accurate notes of the diseases of 600, as well as of the results of 180 dissections of cases in which those diseases terminated fatally. The time that has elapsed since the appearance of these Lectures in the Medical Gazette, has been too short to allow me, in preparing them for separate publication, to do much toward supplying those deficiencies in them of which I am fully sensible. If life and health be spared me, it will be my constant endeavor to render these imperfections less numerous. I trust they may be not of a nature to detract seriously from the usefulness of the work; still less of a kind to lead into error those to whom it has been my earnest wish to prove myself a faithful guide"--Preface.
