The Chemical Investigation of Gastric and Intestinal Diseases by the Aid of Test Meals

    Abstract

    THE continual increase in our knowledge of the physical mechanisms of the body necessitates a corresponding increase in the complexity of the methods which the physician has to employ in his endeavour to locate the seat of disease and to determine its character. Every year the medical man has therefore to start his career with expert knowledge of instruments and methods that were not dreamed of by his predecessors, and every year the extent of his armamentarium is added to by the growth of our knowledge of diseases. Many of these methods which the present-day practitioner has to acquire are physical, such as the use of the thermometer, of the stethoscope, the ophthalmoscope, and the various other instruments which have been devised for throwing light into the cavities of the body.
