The Open-Air Treatment of Pulmonary Tuberculosis (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Open-Air Treatment of Pulmonary Tuberculosis This manual is intended to serve as a practical guide to the modern method Of managing pulmonary tuberculosis. I aim particularly at representing the treatment in its very simplest form. The conditions which are absolutely necessary for the satisfactory adoption Of the open-air system are to be found almost everywhere outside our cities, and the treatment need not by any means be con fined to special institutions. Only a certain proportion of the victims of pulmonary tuberculosis are able to gain admission to a sanatorium, and even these require the subsequent supervision Of their medical man. This book will have served its purpose if the practitioner finds within its pages information as to the carrying out Of the treatment wherever it may be expedient. Arguments are adduced in support Of the contention that not only are elaborate buildings unnecessary, but that they provide less efiicient treatment than more primitive forms Of accommodation. I am convinced that the results are more satisfactory when the consumptive patient is placed in a simple shelter than when he is housed Within massive walls.
