THE FACTS COLLECTED IN THE THIRD PART OF THIS PAPER JUSTIFY THE FOLLOWING CONCLUSIONS: (1) All of the cardinal symptoms of Stokes-Adams disease may be duplicated by heart-block resulting from a lesion in or near the auriculo-ventricular bundle of His, and by this alone. (2) No typical case of Stokes-Adams disease has been described in which heart-block(More)
PLATE ~7. Lewis/ in I9O8 , called attention "to the widespread misunderstanding of the relations which exist between respiration and blood pressure." He states that in books on the subject one finds usually only the results obtained by Einbrodt in the dog, and by Klemen-siewicz in man. Essentially these consist of a rise of pressure during inspiration and a(More)
The four series of experiments described above indicate clearly that tetanic stimulation of the sinus region of the auricles is of material assistance to massage in the resuscitation of the heart. It causes the auricles to generate impulses, either rhythmical or irregular, to which the ventricles, when susceptible, respond. When massage administered for(More)
