Cocaine cataphoresis is particularly of benefit in neural-

If volatile solutions are used, evaporation may be pre-
vented by the employment of a tight-fitting, bell-shaped,

end of the electrode, as in Fig. 2.

Hence the enormous resistance of

power. The electrode of Adam-

form into the tissues, notwithstanding the criticisms of

covered with moist linen, and no doubt a thin layer of

chloroform would get between the circular metallic rim
and the skin. Hence both Adamkiewicz and Hoffman are
right in some of their statements and wrong in others.
My own experiments with chloroform sufficiently attest
In none of the experiments prednisone cost with cocaine or aconitine did
any excoriation or other injury to the skin follow, but occa-
sionally there was slight scaling of the epidermis. There
were, of course, no constitutional effects.
I would suggest the use of electric cataphoresis for other
purposes than that of producing topical anaesthesia. Wher-
ever, for instance, iodine is used as a local application over
swellings or tumors, the cheap prednisone galvanic anode will greatly add to
the efficacy of the medicament.

In the beginning of the attack the pain is usually severe,
and occasionally excruciating. It is generally limited in buy prednisone online
duration to the first three or prednisone price four prednisone 10mg days, declining and ceas-
ing spontaneously. It is the opinion of all writers that pain
should be relieved, and the only difference in their views is
as to the means most useful and least detrimental in the
attainment of this end.
Early in the attack sinapisms and dry or wet cups are
beneficial, and later stimulating liniments and blisters, ac-
cording to the exigencies of the case, are useful. Hot ap-
plications are grateful and beneficial prednisone tablets throughout the entire
course of the disease. These measures not only relieve pain
and dyspnoea, but they also tend to limit the deposit and
promote the absorption of the exudate.
The sinapism should be large and more or less energetic ac-
cording order prednisone online to the age and nervousness of the patient. It should be
placed generic prednisone over tlie local seat of disease and allowed to remain only
sufficiently long to cause decided redness of the surface. It may
be repeated at intervals until purchase prednisone online pain is no longer complained of.
If the pulmonary inflammation is unilateral, the affected
side may be immobilized by careful strapping,* buy cheap prednisone or if it is
bilateral, a thoracic bandage f may be applied. These must
be promply order prednisone removed if there is inability to expel the bron-
chial secretions, and prednisone 20mg they are only useful in the early stages
of the attack.
A blister often relieves pain almost immediately, J and,
if milder measures fail to afford relief, one should be ap- prednisone online
