I happened to answer the door myself, as all my domestics were out looking at some public spectacle. He appeared to me to be actuated by great terror ; and upon my asking him what was the matter, he said, " I have called upon you to request you would let me in, and allow me to die in...
Seite 1 - Sydenham's remark should ever be imprinted on the practitioner's mind, that the same method which cures in the middle of the year may possibly prove destructive at the conclusion of it...
Seite 218 - But being much disposed to sleep, these sensations were for a while disregarded, and he passed two hours in a kind of troubled slumber, waking at short intervals. His respiration became irregular and oppressed ; and his heart sometimes palpitated, and at other times seemed motionless. At length he awoke suddenly and entirely, as from a struggle of incubus. He now experienced acute pain, as from spasm in the region of his heart ; and in spite of all his efforts he felt as if he were continually falling...
Seite 1 - I had once happily fallen upon a genuine method of treating any species of fever suitably to its nature, I always proved successful (proper regard being had to the constitution, age, and other particular circumstances of the patient,) till that species became extinct, and a new one arose, when I was again doubtful how to proceed, and notwithstanding the utmost caution could scarce ever preserve my first patients from danger till I had thoroughly investigated the nature of the distemper, and then...

He retired early to bed, resolving to use a similar diet on the following day. " Soon after he lay down, he began to feel some unusual and distressing sensations about the praecordia, as if he were continually on the...
Seite 231 - ... vaginalis testis propria; while the upper part covers an irregular cellular substance, without any sensible cavity, diffused amongst the spermatic vessels, and connecting them together. " In the hernia which I am describing, the intestine was protruded after the aperture in the abdomen was closed; and therefore the peritoneum was carried down along with the intestine, and formed the hernial sac. It is evident, also, that the hernia must have been produced while the original tunica vaginalis remained...
Seite 251 - I have performed have led me to think, that the stricture in this species of hernia is most commonly formed by the ring, and that it is removed with greater ease and safety by a cautious dilatation towards the pubis, than in any other direction. " Mr. Cooper, amongst other objections which he has urged against the operation inwards, states, that if the hernia is large, this mode of dividing the stricture is not sufficient to allow of the return of the protruded parts, for it gives but little additional...
Seite 50 - March, many of the patients expectorated mucus tinged with blood. On the 8th of March there were four patients in No. 1. and three in No. 4, who had expectorated mucus tinged with blood. Upon the decline of the fever, a numerous crop of vesicles, more especially on the hands, appeared in several of the patients ; in one instance the vesicles were as large as the ordinary bullae of pompholyx. In general, these two kinds of fever were unlike each other during all their stages. Nay, during convalescence,...
