Abstract:

The article is based on study of several cases of typical pneumonia in an attempt to determine whether circulatory disturbances could be influenced by artificial means and the degree of water retention could be inhibited. It was believed that imbibition caused the decomposition of albumen. Consequently, the addition of water should increase both the imbibition and decomposition. The purpose of the experiment was to determine whether the separation of salt from the blood would successfully decrease imbibition on the part of the tissue, or whether additional water would add to the decomposition process. In addition, the following aspects were studied 1 the influence of sugar on the decomposition of albumen 2 the influence of additional nitrogen on the decomposition of albumen 3 the influence of water and salt 4 calcium secretion during fever.
