The Dangerous Cold: Its Cures and Complications

The Dangerous Cold: Its Cures and Complications Communication of medical information to the layman is an art. Fabricant and Conklin fortunately have something of the artist in them. Their "dangerous cold" is painted for popular consumption in opaque medical pigments. In a book written jointly by a laryngologist and a professional writer, some obvious puns and exclamation points are inevitable but do not get out of hand. Half of the volume describes many of the upper respiratory complications related to the common cold, and freely discusses symptoms of the common diseases of sinuses, tonsils, and larynx. In one chapter allergies and their place in upper respiratory infection are placed in proper relation. In another chapter, on coughing, each symptom of nasopharyngeal infection is weighed in turn on the respiratory balance. If the reader is advised to see his physician rather frequently, there is a corresponding accent on eliminating much of the economic loss and physical discomfort caused http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
