Страница 350 - I had to increase the dose to two drachms three times a day. In this quantity it seems capable of producing the maximum of inconvenience and discomfort, and gives unlimited satisfaction. The purgative effect is very pronounced, and in one case the patient had fifty-six evacuations in the week. In another case it produced a well-marked rash, covering the arms and legs with an eruption which forcibly reminded one of copaiba. That this rash is rare may be gathered from the fact that my colleague, Dr....
Страница 209 - He could not with both his hands carry a glass half full of wine to his mouth without spilling it, though he loved it too well to throw it away.
Страница 320 - I have been unable, hitherto, to decide by experiments on animals whether or not the iris could be anaesthetized by dropping the solution into the corneal wound, or by prolonged instillations into the conjunctival . sac ; for experiments to test the sensibility of non-narcotized animals are very complicated and difficult, and do not yield unambiguous results. The last question which I subjected to experimentation on animals, viz., whether or not the inflamed cornea could be anaesthetized by cocaine,...
Страница 316 - Without asserting that it is positively inert, it is concluded from these experiments that its action is so slight as to preclude the idea of its having any value either therapeutically or popularly ; and it is the belief of the writer, from observation upon the effect on the pulse...

Страница 210 - In 1610 this man-of-war received on board several tons of quicksilver saved from the wreck of a vessel near Cadiz. In consequence of the rotting of the bags the Mercury escaped, and the whole of the crew became more or less affected. In the space of three weeks two hundred men were salivated, two died, and all the animals, cats, dogs, sheep, fowls, a canary-bird, nay even the rats, mice and cock-roaches were destroyed.
Страница 311 - ... chloroform solution with a very small quantity of strong hydrochloric acid, the sides of the vessel become covered with crystals of the hydrochlorate of the new base. These may be drained from the mother...
Страница 403 - ... probably produced by some extraneous unnoted influence. The first distinctive action of the drug is a marked lessening of the number of cardiac beats per minute, due to a prolongation of the diastole, which may be complete, but is more generally divided by an abortive attempt at ventricular contraction. The systole is abnormally energetic, so that the ventricles become white as the last drop of blood is squeezed out of them.
Страница 65 - It has been proved, by a series of rigorously exact observations, that by a succulent, delicate, and choice regimen, the external appearances of age are kept away for a long time. It gives more brilliancy to the eye, more freshness to the skin, more support to the muscles ; and, as it is certain in physiology that wrinkles, those formidable enemies of beauty, are caused by the depression of muscle, it is equally true that, other things being equal, those who understand eating are comparatively four...
