The Therapeutical Application of Oxygen.
—V. von Gyurkovechky. According to this author, inhalations of oxygen are indicated where there is acute or chronic saturation of the blood with carbolic acid; he also recommends its use for imperfect oxygenation in cases of physical weakness, anæmia, leucæmia, chlorosis, indigestion, ennervating nervous diseases, diabetes, hemicrania, sleeplessness, and impotence. The oxygen used must be pure; the quantity to be inhaled depends upon individual peculiarities and the character of the disease, and varies from 1030 litres per day. Old people require less than the young; the enfeebled less than the strong. The best time for its administration is before breakfast or before the other meals. Accidents have never been observed by the author. Hæmoptysis and aortic aneurism contraindicates its use.—Cent. für Klin. Med.
