Excerpt from Practice, Vol. 5: January, 1891

Untoward Effects of Antikamnia. - Dr. Smiley reports, in the Texas Health Journal, several cases in which antikamnia excited paroxysms of copious sweating, followed by ?ushes and peculiarly distressing heart failure symptoms, accompanied with facial contortions indicative of approaching convulsions. He advises circumspection in its use in cases of weak heart action. Whiskey and digitalis tided the patient over these symptoms in many instances.

On the Prevention of Shock during and after Operations. Dr. Stephen Smith writes on this important subject in a recent number of the Medical News. The fact is to be deprecated that with the improvement in the treatment of wounds the serious effects resulting from primary and secondary shock have not been diminished; really the mortality seems to have increased. This he ascribes to more prolonged Operations, nausea from the anaesthetic and the chilling dressings now applied. Reference is made to the following preventive measures proposed by the American Surgical Association in 1888.
