doubt just as good results can be obtained in most fractures
by the methods advised, but there are cases in which the
others are applicable, or at least more convenient, and in a
work of this character we miss such old familiar faces, as it
were. Dislocations are also treated of in this section in a
most practical and thorough manner.
The section on Antesthesia, by Dr. H. C. Wood, is one of
those nicely adjusted scientific and practical works which we
rarely see from the pens of laboratory experimenters. Real-
izing that after all the operating table is the place from which
we must gather our practical knowledge of anaesthesia, he re-
fuses assent to the conclusions of esidrix 25 mg the Hyderabad commission
as dominated by the laboratoi-y experience of Dr. T. Lauder
Brunton, and draws his conclusions from the experiences of
tlie hundreds of thousands of anfesthetizations of human beings
by practical surgeons and observant physicians. " We know
of no true anesthetic whose use is unaccompanied with dan-
ger," he hydrochlorothiazide price says, and deprecates the vanity and conceit of those
who report so many thousands purchase hydrochlorothiazide online of administrations without
accident, as the result of their own peculiar methods and
])ersonal skill. Anaesthesia, whether from ether, from chloro-
form, or from any mixture, is a condition of danger, and the order hydrochlorothiazide
security of the patient lies in the recognition of this fact by
the anaBsthetist. Dr. Wood maintains that no condition of
the heart is a positive contraindication to the use of an anaes-
thetic, but says that we should always bear in mind the one
indisputable point with regard to ether and chloroform, tliat
ether stimulates and chloroform hydrochlorothiazide online depresses the circulation,
and choose the one or the other with reference to the func-
tional rather than organic condition of the heart. However
harmless chloroform may esidrix or zaroxolyn be in hot climates, he states that in
the total buy cheap hydrochlorothiazide number of ansesthetizations it is shown to be more
than four times as dangerous as ether, and should be used
proportionally less often, as the safety of the patient, and not
the saving of time or agreeableness, is the first consideration
in every surgical procedure.
The volume closes with sections by Dr. A. G. Gerster, on
the Technique of Antiseptic and Aseptic Sui'gery, and by Dr.
Stephen Smith, on cheap hydrochlorothiazide Operative Surgery. Dr. Gerster is too
well known in this line for us to comment upon his work.
His article is thorough, scientific, and full of practical sug-
gestions. Dr. Smith's article follows largely the teachings of
Treves's Operative Surgery^ and is an excellent though brief
resume of the subject. The illustrations here are numerous
and well executed.
As to a point in the arrangement of the work, it would
seem that the consideration of anajsthesia, minor surgery,
bandaging, and surgical api)liances sliould logically precede
that of gunshot woiinds, fractures, and operative surgery,
but no doul)t the editor has good and sufiicient reasons for
the order lie has given.
The mechanical part of the 1)ook is a credit to the pub- buy hydrochlorothiazide online
lishers, and Dr. Dennis is to be congratulated upon the excel-
lent appearance of his voluminous work.

The earlier numbers of this great work have been re-
viewed in this journal as they have appeared from time to
time. This part is fully equal to those which have preceded
it, both in the illustrations and in the character of the liter-
ary work. The first subject considered is congenital syphi-
lis. It is illustrated by four full-page plates, and is an unusu-
ally complete review of this important subject. The most
interesting chapter is that on progressive muscular atrophy.
The essential pathological lesion of the ordinary form of this
condition the author believes to be hydrochlorothiazide mg a slow and gradual de-
struction of the multipolar nerve-cells of the anterior horn
of the spinal cord. In many cases, the crossed pyramidal
tracts are also sclerosed. The question has been much agi-
tated of whether the hydrochlorothiazide cost lesion of the nerve-cells generic hydrochlorothiazide is degenerative
or inflammatory in character. In the present state of our
knowledge it is impossible to arrive at an order hydrochlorothiazide online absolute decision.
In some cases subacute inflammatory disease is undoubtedly
present, but this does not necessarily prove that the primary
lesion of the nerve-cells is inflammatory. The author draws
a remarkably clear and scientific picture of the disease, which
leaves but little to be desired. The two full-page plates ac-
companying this portion of the work are unusually good.
This buy esidrix is followed by an article on pseudo-hypertrophic paral-
ysis. The number closes with a description of eight peculiar
and ruore or less rare forms of muscular atrophy.

orary Medical Officer to the Victoria Hospital, etc. Lon-
don : John Bale & Sons, 1895. Pp. 7 to 49.
Ix the difficult subject of the treatment of scoliosis all
contributions are welcome, but the diversity of the methods
recommended shows the unsettled state of our knowledge.
Dr. Percy develops the weakened groups of muscles by sys-
tematic and carefully chosen exercises with the pulley

ster fastened to the back of a chair on the side of the promi-
nent shoulder. buy hydrochlorothiazide He deprecates the use of jackets.
