"The great advances in medical science, and more particularly in the practice of surgery, during the half-dozen years since this book was first offered for the use of nurses , have rendered necessary a thorough revision, many things in the old edition being now entirely out of date, while other methods of treatment have come into vogue with which every nurse needs to be acquainted."
