Página 396 - Their gestures were frightful ; those who were completely under the influence of the opium talked incoherently ; their features were flushed, their eyes had an unnatural brilliancy, and the general expression of their countenances was horribly wild. The effect is usually produced in two hours, and lasts four or five : the dose varies from three grains to a drachm.
Página 176 - That of the colt is long, but so stiff as to arch upward and to hang clear of the sides of the neck, in which circumstance it resembles that of the hybrid. This is the more remarkable, as the manes of the Arabian breed hang lank, and closer to the neck than those of most others.
Página 176 - Their colour is bay, marked more or less like the quagga in a darker tint. Both are distinguished by the dark line along the ridge of the back, the dark stripes across the...
Página 197 - ... exposed to debilitating causes. The physician finds the child lying on its nurse's lap, unable or unwilling to raise its head, half asleep, one moment opening its eyes, and the next closing them again with a remarkable expression of languor. The tongue is slightly white, the skin is not hot, at times the nurse remarks that it is colder than natural ; in some cases, there is at times a slight and transient flush : the...
Página 198 - ... tremulous, and sometimes scarcely to be felt. Under this regimen, and in this way, she continued to go on for several days. At times she revived a little, so as to induce those who prescribed this treatment to believe confidently that she would recover, and she clearly regained her sight, for if a watch was held up to her she would follow it with her eyes. She lived longer than I expected ; a full week, and then died with the symptoms of exhaustion, not with those of oppressed brain. The head...
Página 199 - ... aromatics, and a breast of milk ; but because it lay dozing on its nurse's lap two leeches had been put on the temples, and this by a practitioner of more than average sense and knowledge. I took off the leeches, stopped the bleeding of the bites, and attempted nothing but to restrain the diarrhoea, and get in plenty of nature's nutriment, and as I succeeded in this, the drowsiness went off, and the child revived. If it could have reasoned and spoken it would have told this practitioner how wrong...
Página 200 - ... pulse, all which symptoms are greatly increased by any exertion. I have seen this state treated in various ways, by small opiates, gentle aperients, and unstimulating nourishment, with no relief. I have seen blood taken away from the head, and it has afforded relief for a few hours, but then the headache, throbbing...
Página 197 - I am describing is marked by heaviness of the head and drowsiness, without any signs of раш, great languour, and a total absence of all active febrile symptoms. The cases which I have seen have been invariably attributed to congestion of the brain, and the remedies employed have been leeches and cold lotions to the head, and purgatives, especially calomel. Under this treatment they have gradually become worse, the languor has increased, the deficiency of heat has become greater and more permanent,...
Página 394 - ... articulo mortis. I could not bring myself to drive the bargain ; so I left my enraged drogueman to go through that pleasing process. I heard him ask a hundred piastres, and heard him swear, by his father's head and his mother's soul, that I never took less : however, after nearly an hour's haggling, I saw fifty put into his hand ; and the promise of a hundred more, when the patient got well, I saw treated with the contempt which, in point of fact, it deserved. No man makes larger promises than...
Página 200 - It differs from syncope, by coming on gradually and in continuing a considerable time, perhaps a day or two ; and it is not, like syncope, induced by sudden and temporary causes, but by causes of gradual exhaustion going on for a considerable time. It differs from mere exhaustion in the complete abolition of sense and motion while the pulse can be felt distinctly, and is in some cases of considerable strength. I have seen in adults the same affection, though perhaps it is more uncommon than in children.
