In the treatment of diseases of the nervous system as in the treatment of other diseases, the attending physician must measure the success of his treatment by the preservation of the life of the patient and the restoration of function in the anatomic structures diseased.

Of those diseases which endanger life and disable the patient by paralyzing muscles, groups of muscles and entire members, poliomyelitis stands as the most common type. During the acute stage of this disease the patient should rest in bed, the nares should be washed with a 1 per cent. solution of hydrogen peroxid, hexamethylenamin administered, and the pains controlled by the application of heat or by the giving of analgesics, if needed, and lumbar puncture done if there be signs of meningeal irritation.

After the acute stage is passed the physician must interest himself in and direct his treatment toward the restoration of muscular function
