THE ABORTIVE TREATMENT OF PNEUMONIA.

THE ABORTIVE TREATMENT OF PNEUMONIA. In presenting this subject I have nothing new to offer and for this I apologize, but in this day of rapid advancement in medicine we are apt to reach out after the newer remedies and forget the older ones; therefore, I offer this plea for the use of one of the old cardiac depressants which seems to be rapidly giving way to new, and, I believe, less valuable remedies in the treatment of the congestive stage of sthenic types of pneumonia, namely veratrum viride.

Abstract

In presenting this subject I have nothing new to offer and for this I apologize, but in this day of rapid advancement in medicine we are apt to reach out after the newer remedies and forget the older ones; therefore, I offer this plea for the use of one of the old cardiac depressants which seems to be rapidly giving way to new, and, I believe, less valuable remedies in the treatment of the congestive stage of sthenic types of pneumonia, namely veratrum viride.

I must admit also that its use really is an abortive treatment and that in the stage of hepatization is worse than useless and may be said to be malpractice. We must also bear in mind the fact that
