Description:
In the present book an attempt has been made to apply physiology to medicine in the same way as anatomy has long been applied to surgery. Seeing that it is not intended to be a substitute for physiological textbooks, but merely a companion to them, all descriptions of methods have been omitted, and only the facts of physiology dealt with, chief emphasis being laid upon those which have a direct bearing upon clinical work; incidentally these bearings are pointed out.
