9781330384817: The Ship-Surgeon's Handbook (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Ship-Surgeon's Handbook

The unexpected yet wholly gratifying reception accorded to the first edition has prompted the author to publish a second. While most of the fundamental principles have been retained almost unaltered, save for amplification in certain instances, the book has been considerably enlarged by the addition of five chapters. Two of these are special ones having regard to the routine of the American Passenger Service, and require no comment; whereas, the others are of a general nature, affecting all ship-surgeons. The one entitled 'Ship Etiquette and Customs' it is hoped will justify inclusion.

In the chapter on 'Medical Logs' special attention has been paid to the question of 'professional secrecy' in relation to ship-surgeons, as it has always seemed that the prevailing custom at sea is somewhat at variance with generally accepted rules of procedure, and one, moreover, which should be settled by a medical authoritative body.

In conclusion, the author wishes to tender sincere and grateful thanks to all his numerous critics and friends for advice and suggestions in regard to the former and present editions, more especially to Dr. G. W. Pfromm, of Philadelphia, for most invaluable hints and help in preparing the manuscript for the press.
