Administration of Antitoxin.
Fairfield, Iowa, Dec. 5, 1896.
To the Editor:
—In view of the occasional fatal effects of diphtheria antitoxin and the rapidity with which death occurs in these cases, I would suggest the advisability of dividing the administration of the desired dose into several stages at intervals of several minutes between the stages, giving but a fraction of the entire dose at each stage.
Tentatively I propose one-fourth, or less, of the intended dose...
