I have a tendency to compare any recently written monograph on cardiopulmonary resuscitation with that of Jude and Elam published in 1965. Feldman and Ellis have attempted to treat the same subject in a similar number of pages with a broader view (consideration of four types of anoxia, a protocol for the performance of tracheostomy, the ethics of resuscitation, etc.) and have therefore necessarily diluted their text.
Open chest cardiac massage receives more emphasis than it deserves. I believe that the same criticism is true of the discussion of alternating-current countershock. No consideration is given to the coronary care unit
