A Concise Pharmacology and Therapeutics of the More Important Drugs, together with an Introduction to the Art of Prescribing

    Abstract

    THIS is a compact survey of applied pharmacology which can be recommended as a reference book for students in the wards and preparing for examinations. It suffers in places by being so condensed that misinterpretation is possible. The apothecaries system of dosage is used almost exclusively even for drugs, such as those of the arsphenamine series, which are never prescribed in any but metric doses. Proprietary names of some drugs are included, and the examples chosen do not always include the one in commonest use.
