Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: the dosage and Fischer has never observed ill effects after large doses of antitoxin. In some cases the immediate effect of antitoxin on the temperature and pulse is slightly reactive. There may be a rise of temperature from one to two degrees, although in many cases a decided fall may be noted after an injection of from 5,000 to 10,000 units; while the pulse rate is not always affected, in some instances a rapid pulse of 160, for example, may fall to 140 within 12 hours after the injection.

Shurly1 draws the following conclusions from the study of 350 cases of intubation: 1. O'Dwyer tubes and instruments are generally satisfactory; no cheap modifications or substitutes are adequate. 2. Digital exploration of structures about the entrance of the larynx are relatively as important in diagnosis as examination of the naso-pharynx. 3. Failure to intubate is the fault of the operator, except in rare cases, where to intubate is impossible and such impossible cases are reported by Ingals and Abt of Chicago and Eanke of Munich. Spasm of the glottis may cause the tube to slip into the esophagus or engage the folds of mucous membrane on either side but this is easily prevented when the tube is held in place until the patient takes a deep inspiration. Peculiarities of structure or conditions about the epiglottis may interfere with the operation; for instance, among children from 6 months to 2 years the flexible epiglottis may so curl downward and backward under the index finger that to restrain the normal function of the cartilage is difficult.
