dc.description.abstractThe Pulse physiologically and clinically considered affords one of the most interesting studies in clinical medicine. A thorough appreciation of its significance in health and disease enables the physician to grasp the many interesting phenomenona that occur in its many changing phases, and to draw conclusions from its departures from the normal type, which enable him to diagnose, treat, and observe the effects of treatment in the course of his clinical career. The subject has been elaborately treated in the many learned discourses on Physiology and medicine, and books especially devoted to it in its morbid conditions are numerous.en
dc.description.abstractIn selecting such a hackneyed subject for a graduation thesis my object is not to endeavour to rival those excellent treateses, but to grasp for my own edification and instruction one of the salient factors in clinical medicine. Any man may write a book for others to read, but however thorough the book may be it is useless as an educating factor if the reader does not endeavour to grasp and apply its principles, and observe for himself the points which others may indicate. In order to become a competent practical member of the noble and useful profession of medicine each votary of the science, must be not only a. speculative absorber of other men's facts and experiences, but must be on the outlook for such facts clinical an(5 other that may fall to his humble lot. My only apology for taking up such an extensive subject is the perhaps common one, viz:- the absorbing interest the subject of pulse ft circulatory system has always had. for me. Many of the problems presented by the circulatory system have been exhausted by abler exponents, but as before said each member of the profession must go over the ground for himself before he is in a position to enable him to become a. truthful and useful observer. I do not presume to exhaust the subject within the limited space allowed for in a graduation thesis, that would require a. few more years of study and observation. I shall confine my attention to such facts as have directly appealed to me in the course of my clinical career.en
dc.description.abstractThe following heads will comprise the greater bulk of my thesis. 1. Analysis of a Sphygmographic tracing. 2. The Pulse in valvular disea.se of the heart. 3. Pulse Rhythm. 4. Pulse tension as a guide in Diagnosis, Proposis and Treatment.en
