Excerpt from Second Annual of the North Carolina Sanatorium for the Treatment of Tuberculosis, 1915: Under Control of State Board of Health; Sanatorium, N. C A hemorrhage of the lungs means tuberculosis Without exception. A subnormal temperature (by the thermometer) in the morning and a rise of temperature in the afternoon means tuberculosis 99 times in 100, and often the other time, too. A low blood pressure, taken With the proper instrument, is suggestive of tuberculosis. A cough that lasts more than three weeks should suggest tuberculosis and should call for an examination by a competent physician. The tubercle bacillus in the sputum is a positive sign of tuberculosis, but the diagnosis should be made long before the bacillus can be found. The earlier the diagnosis of tuberculosis is made, the greater are the chances for recovery. The later in its course the disease is found, the less are the chances for recovery.
