Seite 355 - To those who repudiate the circulation because they neither see the efficient nor final cause of it, and who exclaim, cui bono ? I have yet to reply, having hitherto taken no note of the ground of objection which they take up. And first I own I am of opinion that our first duty is to inquire whether the thing be or not, before asking wherefore it is...
Seite 120 - It is difficult to avoid associating the inertness of colloids with their high equivalents, particularly where the high number appears to be attained by the repetition of a smaller number. The inquiry suggests itself whether the colloid molecule may not be constituted by the grouping together of a number of smaller crystalloid molecules, and whether the basis of colloidality may not really be this composite character of the molecule.
Seite 453 - ... contained antimony. 2nd. That in the dried contents of the intestines the antimony was partly in a form soluble in water, and most likely in the state of tartar emetic or tartarised antimony. In the liver, kidney, and other viscera, the antimony was deposited in a state insoluble in water. 3rd. That the contents of the intestines contained the largest proportion of antimony, next the heart, then the liver, kidney, and spleen ; less in the stomach, and the smallest quantity in the rectum, brain,...
Seite 461 - The returned prisoners sent into . Wilmington numbered nearly 9,000. About 7,UUO of the less famished have gone North. General Abbott, who received our poor fellows in the exchange, has just told me that language would utterly fail to describe their condition. Filth, rags, nakedness, starvation were personified in their condition. Many of the men were in a state of...
Seite 41 - I am quite sure that, as a rule, we ought to avoid its use when other means will attain the same end. The longer you practise your profession the more will this principle be impressed upon your minds. There is another thing to be remembered in the treatment of stricture : never be ashamed to leave the bedside of a patient without succeeding in passing a bougie. The late Mr.
Seite 175 - ... to occur in animals. Thus sugar, starch, woody fibre, vegetable colouring matter as indigo, albuminous substances, are common to animals and vegetables ; and at length we have arrived at the fact that no distinction can truly be drawn between the three kingdoms of nature. In the body, salt and phosphate of lime and phosphate of soda are animal substances as much as fibrin and albumen. Sugar is as much an animal substance as albumen is a vegetable substance, and no separation can be made by chemical...
Seite 176 - Quinine exists, in health, in the textures, can its rapid destruction and removal through the action of marsh miasm give rise to ague ? Does Quinine cure ague by furnishing a substance which retards the changes which go on in the textures ? and in the well-known property of Arsenic to preserve organic substances have we also the explanation of its power in curing ague ? 2.
Seite 319 - ... small particle of that blood contains enough poison to give the disease to another animal. This at once accounts for the rapid spread of the Cattle Plague. The agent is multiplied to a large amount in a very short space of time. How soon after the poison is put into the blood the animal becomes capable of giving the disease by natural infection to other animals...
Seite 227 - The results were regularly examined at the meetings of the class every Tuesday and Friday. The friction produced considerable soreness, and, in a few places, superficial suppuration. Three weeks, however, elapsed, and there was no appearance of favus. At this time, there still remained on the arm a superficial open sore about the size of a pea, and Mr. M. suggested that a portion of the crust should be fastened directly on the sore. This was done, and the whole covered by a circular piece of adhesive...
Seite 454 - The characteristic effect of each of these agents on frogs is the production of irregularity of the heart's action, followed by complete stoppage of its pulsations ; the ventricle remaining rigidly contracted, and perfectly pale, after it has ceased to beat ; the muscular power of the animal being at this time unimpaired, and persisting as long as in frogs in which the circulation has been stopped by other means, such as ligature of the heart.
