Excerpt from The Principles of Clinical Pathology: A Text-Book for Students and Physicians
The numerous American studies referred to in the text and footnotes contain, as a rule, comprehensive bibliographies.
Professor Krehl's appended note on the cardiac arrhythmias (referred to in his Preface) has been incorporated into the main body of the text.
The translation though not a literal one, does not depart in any essential way from the original text, and embodies, it is hoped, the spirit of the latter. I have allowed myself the privilege of certain condensations and slight rearrangements - all with the view of rendering the material more serviceable to the readers for whom it is intended. Editorial notes - several of which are taken from the earlier American editions - are included in parentheses.
It is with keen pleasure, finally, that I acknowledge my debt to Dr. R. G. Hoskins, Professor of Physiology in the North-western University Medical School, for his constant stimulus and many suggestions; and to Messrs. J. B. Lippincott Co. for their cooperation throughout the preparation of the volume.
