Because of the great advances during the past decade in the care and treatment of patients with tuberculosis, the nursing of tuberculous patients has come to be a special field demanding specialized instruction and practice.
This manual provides in a clear and convenient form the information required by nurses who are engaged in this work in the sanitorium, hospital or home, and should serve as an excellent text for ready reference and also for use in preparing for examinations to qualify for this type of nursing.
It is printed in large, clear type on good paper. The illustrations are well chosen. There are a glossary of technical terms and an index.
