Abstract

Under Colonel Bushnell's long administration at Fort Bayard, a standard method of examination of the lungs was developed and taught to medical officers assigned to duty at that hospital. This experience, together with that gained in intructing tuberculosis examiners and other medical officers in training camps during the World War, is the foundation of the first part of this book. It is distinguished by its clear language, by emphasis on findings in the normal chest, by research, and by the omission of doubtful methods of diagnosis. That Colonel Bushnell's diagnostic methods were practical was shown by their adoption in large measure for the tuberculosis examination of millions of men in the draft. There are a few illustrations of tuberculous lungs, which would have reproduced to advantage in colors. The section on diagnosis of heart diseases is well illustrated. The various graphic methods of diagnosis, recently introduced, are considered. The more
