Pàgina 373 - The existence of this swelling may often be ascertained by a careful examination with the fingers, and a view of the parts may sometimes be obtained by means of a speculum, — such a glass as is used by dentists on a long stalk previously dipped in hot water, introduced with its reflecting surface downwards and carried well into the fauces.
Pàgina 80 - In many instances there is a loss of the healthy appetite for food, the imperfect state of the digestion being soon rendered manifest by the loss of flesh and the sallow countenance. It is difficult to say what other diseases may not follow the imperfect assimilation of food continued during a long period of time. So many causes are in operation in the human body which may tend in a greater or less degree to the production of organic changes in it, that it is only in some instances we can venture...

Pàgina 332 - Where it is more agreeable to the patient, the powder may be placed on the tongue and permitted slowly to dissolve. I shall not attempt to explain the action of this medicine on the system in the cure of ague, but will leave that to older heads than mine to determine ; still, we do know that after it is taken into the stomach and becomes absorbed, it has the chemical effect of changing the dark- colored venous blood, to arterial, or at least it changes its color.
