During the forty-nine days of our stay at Evacuation Hospital No. 8, the team treated 250 patients and performed a total of 340 operations, as contained in report dated Nov. 5, 1918.

There were sixty-seven cases of thoracic injuries, or about 27 per cent, of the whole number of wounded. This high percentage is explained by the fact that Team 39 was assigned the greater number of this class of cases. A number of others not in our list were sent to one of us (H. L.) in consultation, and in most of these, for example, cases of severe fracture of the skull complicated by thoracic wounds, operations on the chest were not performed.

CONDITIONS  The hospital operating room and its accessory departments, preparation, shock, roentgen-ray, etc., were well equipped and excellently managed by Major Arthur Shipley under Colonel Hall, commanding officer. Asepsis was as perfect as could be expected
