Excerpt from International Clinics, Vol. 4: A Quarterly of Illustrated Clinical Lectures and Especially Prepared Articles on Medicine, Neurology, Surgery, Therapeutics, Obstetrics, Paediatrics, Pathology, Dermatology, Diseases of the Eye, Ear, Nose, and Throat, and Other Topics of Interest to Studen The cure of consumption, to-day, rests absolutely upon one great factor in treatment, and that is - out-door air. Any method by which a consumptive can breathe out-door air, day and night, without exposure and without fatigue, and surrounded by the com forts or even luxuries so necessary to the invalid's existence, should be warmly embraced by all who are interested in the cure of this terrible disease. Such a method I believe I have devised by the use of my Sana tory Tent, which has been the result of considerable study and much practical experience during the last ten years. It seems to be a strong impression in most lay, and some professional, minds that if the windows of an ordinary room are Opened wide, all the condi tions of ventilation are then sufficient for the pulmonary invalid. This is a great mistake, and has undoubtedly caused many unneces sary deaths. Window ventilation of a room does not cause as rapid an air interchange as it should, for several reasons. If such a window faces the wind the air is forced into the room, but vitiated air is not forced out; while, if the wind is from the other direction or blowing away from the open window, the air interchange de pends entirely upon suction. If two windows are used Opposite each other a strong draught is created, while still the corners of the room collect stagnant air.
