Excerpt from Cardiac Outlines for Clinical Clerks: And Practitioners and First Principles in the Physical Examination of the Heart for the Beginner, and First Principles in the Physical Examination of the Heart for the Beginner, With Sixty-Two Illustrations
The publication of this collection of Cardiac Outlines was undertaken with a threefold object to help the beginner through his first difficulties, to encourage the clinical clerk in the cultivation of the graphic method as a means to thoroughness and accuracy, and to place at the disposal of the practitioner an easy method of adequately recording important clinical observations. This little book does not profess to be a treatise on cardiac diseases. With the exception of short and incidental pathological sketches it is entirely devoted to the study of physical examination under healthy and morbid conditions. My aim has been to provide the reader with a method which he may find equal to the requirements of cardiac study, and which may help him onwards farther than I am yet competent to lead.
It would have been impossible to have set forth the method as a whole without including some details not strictly elementary. At the same time the needs of the junior student have been steadily considered, both in' the beginning which has been made rudimentary, and in _the gradual progression to more advanced subjects.
I am under a pleasing obligation to my nephew, Mr. P. De Vaumas, for valuable assistance in the production of several of the illustrations.
