Diseases of the Heart (1910) By James Mackenzie
eBook (ePub): $11.99
(1 Ratings)
(460 PAGES)THE speedy exhaustion of the first edition of this book, and the demand for its translation into a number of languages, is an evidence of the interest taken in the more recent methods of... More > studying diseases of the heart. It is extremely gratifying to find many investigators entering a field full of promise of new and original observations, embracing every aspect of the circulatory system. I wish to point out that, in setting forth my own experiences, I desire to keep the record of facts apart from their interpretation. For this reason the numerous figures in the text represent the actual facts as recorded by the movements of the heart and blood-vessels, and are therefore far more trustworthy than a verbal description. The interpretation of these tracings represents the present state of my knowledge. These interpretations may ultimately be proved to be incorrect, but the recorded movements will continue to serve for other and more fitting explanations.< Less

More > digestion by producing bile and pancreatic juices.Great advance in our knowledge of the diseases alimentary system during recent years may be attributed chiefly to three factors : 1) the opportunities of observation afforded by the performance of surgical operations on the abdomen—the study, as it has been termed, of "the pathology of the living"; (2) an improved X-ray technique ; (3) the introduction of biochemical tests for estimating the "physiological efficiency" of important organs such as the stomach, pancreas, and liver. The information gained by these methods has rendered diagnosis of diseases of the alimentary system more precise.< Less

eBook (ePub): $4.99
Micrographia Or Some Physiological Descriptions Of Minute Bodies Made By Magnifying Glasses. With Observations and Inquiries Thereupon By Robert Hooke. Fellow of the ROYAL SOCIETY. By the Council of... More > the ROYAL SOCIETY of London for Improving of Natural Knowledge. Micrographia is a historic book by Robert Hooke, detailing the then thirty-year-old Hooke's observations through various lenses. Published in September 1665, the first major publication of the Royal Society, it was the first scientific best-seller, inspiring a wide public interest in the new science of microscopy. It is also notable for coining the biological term cell. Observations: Hooke most famously describes a fly's eye and a plant cell (where he coined that term because plant cells, which are walled, reminded him of a monk's quarters). Known for its spectacular copperplate engravings of the miniature world, particularly its fold-out plates of insects, the text itself reinforces the tremendous power of the new microscope.< Less
