Stranica 211 - ... and evening visits are made." Its utility in the dissecting-room is confirmed by the statements made by Mr. Bowman, Dr. Sharpey, Mr. Partridge, Dr. Murray, and Dr. V. Pettigrew, who concur in asserting, that in a proper degree of dilution its success is complete, and that it appears to preserve the colour and texture of the parts very admirably.

Stranica 67 - It would seem as if, with them, the physiological congestion which is inseparably connected with menstruation could not take place without great pain being experienced. This may be either from the uterus being naturally morbidly susceptible to the stimulation occasioned by the presence of blood, or it may be that the monthly congestion is morbidly great.
Stranica 214 - S. had abandoned these and other escharotics, and now always used the common potassa fusa. He had found it far more manageable, speedy, and certain than any other method.
