Baltimore:: Johns Hopkins Hospital Reports, 1895., 1895. Series: Johns Hopkins Hospital Reports, Vol. 5. Offprint. 25 cm. , 445,457,  pp. Printed wrappers; cover detached. 4 charts. Very good. Osler makes the point that chills, which he felt were generally ignored "except as a symptom of the onset of the disease," by most physicians, should be considered more carefully. In this article he describes numerous cases of chills in typhoid fever, as well as his attempts to ascertain their causes and significance. "Nothing influenced Osler's views of therapeutics as much as his analysis of the treatment of typhoid fever at Hopkins. If no known medication killed the disease, what could be done? Abandoning the administration of drugs that made patients worse was the first step forward. Careful attention to diet and first-class nursing attention were much more than just counsels of despair or holding actions." - Michael Bliss, William Osler, A Life in Medicine. Golden & Roland 659.
