The first edition of this manual contained concise instructions for making any of the usual simple and the more complicated clinical laboratory examinations. To these are added in this new edition certain revisions, notably in the chapter dealing with the Wassermann reaction. Other changes are made in the directions for the chemical examinations of the blood. A section on cutaneous reactions and a chapter on basal metabolism are new features.
As a text for medical students and a guide for physicians and laboratory technicians, this book is recommended without reserve and is adequate in every respect.
