A I the collection of scientific literature in
the Clark Library has already served as the background for a
number of seminars, in the most recent of them the literature of
embryology and the medical aspects of Robert Boyle's thought
were subjected to a first and expert examination. Charles W.
Bodemer, of the Division of Biomedical History, School of
Medicine, University of Washington, evaluated the embryological
ideas of that remarkable group of inquiring Englishmen,
Sir Kenelm Digby, Nathaniel Highmore, William Harvey, and
Sir Thomas Brovsme. Lester S.

Bacteriology is essentially a practical study, and even the elements of its technique can only be taught by personal instruction in the laboratory. This is a self-evident proposition that needs no emphasis, yet I venture to believe that the former collection of tried and proved methods has already been of some utility, not only to the student in the absence of his teacher, but also to isolated workers in laboratories far removed from centres of instruction, reminding them of forgotten details in methods already acquired.

The science of Medicine is progressive; genius irradiates its onward march. Few other sciences have advanced as rapidly as it has done within the last half century. Hence it has happened that in many of its branches text-books have not kept pace with the knowledge of its leading minds. Such is confessedly the case in the department of Medical Jurisprudence. This very term, Medical Jurisprudence, as now used in colleges, is generally acknowledged to be a misnomer. There is no reason why it should be so used. The leading medical writers and practitioners are sound at present on the...
The essays which compose this volume deal chiefly with a variety of subjects to which every physician must have given more or less thought. Some of them touch on matters concerning the mutual relation of physician and patient, but are meant to interest and instruct the laity rather than the medical attendant. The larger number have from their
.nature a closer relation to the needs of women than of men. It has been my fate of late years to have in my medical care very many women who, from one or another cause, were what is called nervous. Few of...

The use of respirators in the health care setting is a relatively new but important step forward in the efforts to prevent the transmission of tuberculosis (TB). Air purifying respirators provide a barrier to prevent health care workers from inhaling Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The level of protection a respirator provides is determined by the efficiency of the filter material and how well the facepiece fits or seals to the health care worker’s face. A number of studies have shown that surgical masks will not provide adequate protection in filtering out the TB organism.
The idea of a book to help neurologists prepare for the oral part of the Neurology Board
Examination stemmed from numerous exchanges with colleagues on how they prepared
for this important exam. Nobody seemed to have the magic formula to maximize their
chances of passing and there were wide disparities of opinion on what they considered the
best preparation. Some recommendations were based on often inaccurate impressions,
others were the distorted product of their stressful experience while taking the test.
A prior acquisition without intravenous
contrast is recommended. It assesses solid organ hematomas and sentinel hematoma. Arterial
acquisition is performed when chest exploration is indicated. Delayed acquisition (2-3
minutes) is performed when renal lesions or active bleeding are diagnosed. A number of
studies have evaluated the safety and sensitivity of the triple-contrast CT approach. A
metaanalysis performed by Goodman and al. , performed to determine the predictive value
of CT for laparotomy in hemodynamically stable patients with penetrating abdominal trauma.
This book has an aim to present latest applications, trends and developments of virtual reality technologies in three humanities disciplines: in medicine, psychology and pedagogy. Studies show that people in both educational as well as in the medical therapeutic range expect more and more that modern media are included in the corresponding demand and supply structures. For the Internet and various mobile media, associated research and application projects now have fixed key words such as "E-learning" and "E-Mental Health" or "M-Learning", "M-Mental Health"....

Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read. Since natural and/or dietary supplements are not FDA approved they must be accompanied by a two-part disclaimer on the product label: that the statement has not been evaluated by FDA and that the product is not intended to "diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease." ...

The cordial reception given to this little book by the medical profession, by educators, and especially by the young men of the country, have by their demands for the book necessitated the appearance of new editions in such rapid succession that no
.far-reaching changes in the text have been possible even if they had been needed. Happily, no extensive changes have been required. In the second edition several corrections, typographical and verbal, were made and additions made to the appendix. To the third edition the chapter on Development was added.
Both hypoxia and hyperoxia, deregulating the oxidative balance, may play a role in the pathology of neurodegenerative disorders underlain by cerebral ischemia. In the present study, quantitative proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy was used to evaluate regional metabolic alterations, following a 24-hour hypoxic or hyperoxic exposure on the background of ischemic brain insult, in two
Pesticide risk assessments cover all endpoints of concern. OPP updates risk assessment
methods as science evolves or new information becomes available, and has worked to
improve protection of children’s health. There has been an increased emphasis on toxic
effects unique to children. OPP requires advanced toxicity testing to assess possible effects
on the fetus and developing young, including developmental neurotoxicity and reproductive
The activity of theCaenorhabditis elegansscavenger decapping enzyme
(DcpS) on its natural substrates and dinucleotide cap analogs, modified with
regard to the nucleoside base or ribose moiety, has been examined. All
tested dinucleotides were specifically cleaved between b- and c-phosphate
groups in the triphosphate chain.
This affliction, like trouble with the eyes or teeth, falls entirely outside the physician's province; for
medicines, the physician's chief means of cure, are utterly powerless either to relieve or overcome it.
And, unfortunately, scarcely one sufferer in a hundred knows of anyone else to turn to, with the exception of
the surgeon, after finding that physicians can give no relief.

Birth control, in the sense of the prevention of pregnancy by chemical, mechanical, or other artificial means,
is being widely advocated as a sure method of lessening poverty and of increasing the physical and mental
health of the nation. It is, therefore, advisable to examine these claims and the grounds on which they are
