To the Editor:—
Dr. Domino's suggestion on the use of the word "sympathomimetic" when referring to atropine and scopolamine is quite proper. His comments concerning the action of these drugs is, of course, correct. I have been guilty of a common error in my application of the term. A minor defense for my position may be the fact that, though pharmacologically incorrect, anesthesiologic parlance has permitted the term "sympathomimetic" to be used with full understanding of its actual significance.
