This book is devoted to the discussion of symptoms and signs of heart disease, and it is intended especially for the medical student and the practicing physician. The author has apparently written it to serve as a text for his courses at the University of Mexico.
The subject is treated in six parts. These are titled, "Functional Semiology," "Hemodynamics," "Semiology of Objective Signs," "Laboratory Examinations," "Radiological Semiology" and "Electrocardiographic Semiology." Each part is in turn divided into chapters in which the basic concepts involved are thoroughly discussed. A textbook pattern has been attained in order to permit unified discussions of the basic concepts and of the newer investigations and approaches. Presentations are included on some of the excellent works which have come from the Mexican National Institute of Cardiology, particularly in the fields of electrocardiography and cardiac roentgenology.
The book is well printed and illustrated and adequately fulfils its intended
