produced in another way : the increased peristalsis which
accompanies the catarrh hurries the food along before ab-
sorption can take place, and in this way also addH to the
bulk of the decomposing mass lower in the bowel.
Tlic final results in every Order Oxybutynin Online case are:
1. Innutrition of the pati(!nt.
2. Catarrhal, (Toupous, or follicular inllaniiiiation of Generic Oxybutynin the

With our present knowledge it is not possible; to Hay
(M'rtairdy whether the develo[)ment of abnormal bacteria is
to be regarded as the primary cause of digestive derange-
ments or the result of it. The facts, as we now understand
them, seem to be most (tasily reconcilePurchase Oxybutynin Online with the latter
In what, then, consists the peculiar susceptibility of chil-
dren under two years? W^e may not attribute it to the
milk diet, for this food is taken almost as freely during the
third as during the second year without any such injurious
results. We do not yet know of any anatomical or physio-
logical differences in the intestinal Order Ditropan tract in later childhood
sufficient to explain Buy Cheap Oxybutynin the fact, and we must fall back to the
view that there is then increased power of resistance to
bacteria ; that Buy Ditropan in children over two years the intestinal
tract almost ceases to be a vulnerable point for bacterial Purchase Ditropan Online
The comparative immunity of children in the country,
and of the better classes in the city, is to be explained in Order Oxybutynin
the Oxybutynin Online same way.
Breast-fed children Generic Ditropan escape by rea.son of the fact that
their digestive organs are usually healthy and their food is
free from germs.
Hand-fed children suffer most — first, because they are
almost always overfed; secondly, because many of them
suffer a large Order Ditropan Online part of the Buy Oxybutynin Online time from a Purchase Ditropan mild type of catarrh ;
thirdly, because in summer their food contains germs in
abundance. In the absence of the third condition the two
others are not usually potent enough to produce serious con-
sequences. But the union of all three gives us our worst
To summarize Buy Oxybutynin :
1. We accept, then, the doctrine that we are concerned
most of all, in the gastro-intestinal disorders of infancy,
with the development of abnormal bacteria, but as the first
step there is a failure of complete digestion and perfect ab-
2. Mechanical diarrhoea from the presence of foreign
bodies, or food which acts as such to infantile digestion,
and that resulting from the ingestion of poisonous ptomaines, Cheap Ditropan
are probably the only varieties to be excluded from this
3. The anatomical changes are those of inflammation of
the gastro-intestinal mucous membrane ; but the lesions are
the results, either directly or indirectly, of the micro-organ-
isms. Since micro-organisms are found in numbers only
superficially, except where ulcers exist, it seems most likely
that their action is an indirect one through their ptomaines.

tion which take place in the intestine, and the bacteria
which produce the different forms, we are as yet almost in

5. One Buy Ditropan Online clinical form of diarrha'al disease — viz., true
cholera infantum — has many features which Purchase Oxybutynin point to a spe-
cific germ as a probable cause.
To what views of prophylaxis and treatment of intesti-
nal disease does the foregoing discussion lead us? Time
will not permit here more than an outline.
Two things are essential to active bacterial growth — the
entrance of living germs in numbers, and a proper soil for
their development. Prophylaxis must have regard to both

dren under two years, by absolute cleanliness of bottles and
everything with which the milk comes in contact, and by
