Text Appearing Before Image:
Pressure 5 oz. Pressure 4 oz. FiCt. 97.—Ch7-07iic Brighfs Disease.—D. G., set. 40, admitted to Newcastle Infirmary 5th September 1878, suffering from renal dropsy (large white kidney). The pulse is one of high tension ; the tidal wave is strongly marked.Fig. 98.—Acute Brighfs Disease.—Tidal wave strongly marked, from a patient admitted to the Newcastle Infirmary under the care of Dr Drurnmond.

Text Appearing After Image:
Fig. 99.—Atheroma and Aneitrisiii of Aortic Arch.—J. D., aet. 52, admitted toNewcastle Infirmary 21st February 1878, suffering from aneurism of theascending portion of the aortic arch and atheroma. The tidal wave is verystrongly marked. There was no perceptible difference between the twopulses. Vice versa the second ventricular systolic wave isabsent in those cases in which the arterial tension duringthe ventricular systole is low. Now, low tension during theventricular systole may be due either to an insufficientamount of blood being pumped into the arterial systemduring the ventricular contraction, a condition which is seenin cases of cardiac weakness, mitral disease, etc. ; or, it mayresult from an abnormally free outflow from the arterialsystem during the ventricular systole, a condition which is Dr Galabin (formerly) supposed that the separation of the primary, or socalled percussion and tidal waves did not really exist in the artery, but wasproduced in the trace by the veloc
