This book, written for nurses, deals briefly with the problem of pneumonia. All points are adequately covered including etiology, pathology, symptoms, various methods of therapy, and nursing care. The authors unfortunately have failed to mention the subcutaneous method of administering sulfapyridine, though the unaccepted new drugs, sulfathiazole and sulfamethylthiazole, have been mentioned. The bibliography divided for each chapter at the end of the book has been well selected. The subject matter is clear-cut and well presented.
This book will prove most useful to graduate nurses who see only an occasional pneumonia case and want a quick review of the subject.
