How are the cases to be distinguished? By the total want of accordance between the physical signs and the constitutional symptoms: the patient with syphilitic...
Page 306 - One of the several cholera antidotes is the early treatment of premonitory symptoms, of which looseness of bowels is a principal one ; commanding officers are therefore requested to give the most precise orders on the subject, and to cause all men affected by premonitory symptoms to be placed at once in a premonitory ward. 14.
