This volume, which is intended only for students and practitioners in the field of chiropody, is divided into four principal parts devoted to materia medica, therapeutics, pharmacy and prescription writing. Included in these sections are chapters and discussions on the history, classification, preparation, administration, uses and actions of drugs, incompatibilities, equivalent measures and weights, toxicology, narcotics, insulin, blood plasma, vitamins, general and local anesthesia, kidney functions, urinalysis and other laboratory tests. There is also an alphabetical list of drugs and illustrative material on prescription writing. It is readily apparent that much of the material in this book is outside the scope of chiropodial practice and can be of little practical value to students in this field. Other parts may serve as reference, but the book as a whole is not of textbook caliber in its present form.
