The Quantitative Estimation of the different Factors which go to make up the Total Acidity. For Free Hydrochloric Acid only--Mintz's Method--Hydrochloric Acid, free and combined with Proteids--Sjbqvist's Method--For all the Acids Present--Cahn and von Mering--Mintz-Boas--Hayem and Winter--Toepfer--Martius and Liittke--The Author's Modification of Hayem and Winter's Method--For the Organic Acids--Methods used less frequently--Contejean--Hoffmann--Braun--Mierzynski--Table of Methods. In the preceding chapters the methods described apply only to the individual conditions under which the different acids are found. To obtain the greatest amount of information concerning the chemistry of the stomach contents, we must make use of methods which will indicate both the acids present and the chemical forms in which they exist. Unfortunately, owing to the complexity of the subject, most of these methods are so complicated, and, as a rule, so difficult, that they are out of the reach of any one unskilled in chemical analysis, or unprovided with the somewhat large amount of apparatus necessary. As the practitioner, as a rule, has little time on his hands, and as most of the methods involve lengthy processes, if they are to be conscientiously and accurately performed, the majority of them are impossible in general practice. The different acid factors which require quantitative investigation are--1, The total acidity; 2, the constituents of that acidity; 3, the presence of free hydrochloric acid; 4, the portion of hydrochloric acid combined with proteid bodies; 5, the presence of volatile and non-volatile organic acids; and, 6, the acidity due to acid salts. The estimation of...
