AN INTERNATIONAL MONTHLY REVIEW OF CURRENT MEDICAL LITERATURE

Vol. XIV

DECEMBER 25, 1908.

THE PROGRESS OF MEDICAL SCIENCE.

UNDER THE CHARGE OF

HENRY H. PELTON, M.A., M.D.,

No. 12

The diet must be regulated in quantity and quality of all elements which are necessary for food: (1) Inorganic elements which act mechanically. (2) Heat producers, such as starches, sugars, fats. (3) Proteids and tissue builders, such as beef, eggs and milk. (4) The nucleoalbumins for phosphorus, for hæmoglobin and lecithin. Wheat, beef, and milk do not contain a sufficient quantity of the nucleo-albumins for complete tissue builders.

The Treatment of Wilcox (Monthly physiologically a nitrite, and is suitable Chronic Nephritis. Cyclopædia of Prac- for prolonged use. Strontium lactate is tical Medicine and Medical Bulletin, Sep- not useful nor indicated. Of special tember, 1908), gives the following very symptoms, uræmia, is best combated by practical points: high intestinal irrigations: three gallons of normal saline solution, at a temperature of 115° to 120° F., through a 12-inch rectal tube under three feet of hydrostatic pressure. The normal saline, accurately, is sodium chloride, 0.9; calcium chloride, 0.026; potassium chloride, 0.01, with water to 100. Convulsions in old subjects generally mean sudden colon bacillus invasion, and call for calomel in small and frequent doses. Later, hexamethylamine and sodium benzoate, of each 10 grains, may be given every three hours.

Coma may be treated by an intravenous saline transfusion after a preliminary venesection. Twenty minims of tincture of veratrum every 15 minutes to six doses, is often satisfactory. Dyspnoea of the nocturnal variety requires the vasodilators. Rarely hydrated chloral is permissible, but its use is to be deprecated.

Renal decapsulation has been a sufficiently long time before the profession for a final judgment. It is clearly useless in arterial nephritis when this is a local manisfestation of a general pathological process.

Hygienic conditions are suggestive, subject to much modification, as exercise in the open air, clothing, mental and physical rest, and avoidance of overtaxing digestion, especially at night. Of medicinal treatment it may be found that the diminution of sodium chloride ingestion in marked anasarca yields pronounced results, which are readily verified by weighing at regular intervals. Strontium lactate, from one-half to two drams daily, not in acute exacerbations, however, markedly diminishes albuminuria. Iron is generally useful. For arterial nephritis erythrol tetranitrate of the British Pharmacopoeial Conference, in from I-10 to 1⁄2-grain doses, several times daily, is

Guiteras' conclusions from 120 cases, operated on by 42 different surgeons, seem fair: "I. Finally, I may say that I
