It contains more than 250 rare illustrations from obscure sources as well as a bibliography and names and dates section.

Описание: This volume provides a comprehensive history of cardiothoracic surgery up to the introduction of open-heart surgery in the 1950s. It is the story of the pulmonary, oesophageal and cardiac surgery which relates mainly to the late-19th century and the dramatic advances in the first half of the 20th century. It also includes what was accomplished before this time, even as far back as Hippocrates before the introduction of percussion, auscultation and radiology, all of which revolutionized the diagnosis of thoracic disease. Many early clinicians were astute observers, and this is apparent in their writings, extracts of which have been included in the text in order to provide "atmosphere" to the surgical scene, and to enable the reader to relive the past and appreciate the problems of those early surgeons. It is surprising what they achieved despite a lack of modern investigatory facilities. This illustrated book is fully referenced, and includes an extensive bibliographical section. There are also chapters on: the history of the related topics of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, bronchoscopy, oesophagoscopy and thoracoscopy; electrocardiography and cardiac catheterization; percussion and auscultation; thoracic anaesthesia, estimation of blood pressure and temperature; blood transfusion; and the discovery of the circulation of the blood.
