Good. FIRST EDITION, thus. Spanish translation of portions of Broussais' works, Catechisme de la medicine physiologique (Paris, 1824), and Examen de la doctrine medicale generalement adoptee, et des systemes modernes de nosologie (Paris, 1816), the latter being among his most popular. According to Broussais, vital phenomena depended on external stimuli, especially heat, and produced chemical changes which in turn modified the normal functioning of the tissues. When these stimuli were moderate, the body remained healthy; when they were too weak or too strong, disease ensued. All diseases were local and were transmitted from one organ to another by sympathy or by means of the gastro-intestinal mucosa. All excessive stimuli produced hyperaemia and thus inflammation. The basis of all pathology was gastroenteritis. Broussais called his doctrine physiological medicine, in order to emphasize that disorders of function were more important than structural changes. Surgeon of the armies of France and professor of general pathology and therapeutics at Paris, Broussais was the most celebrated French practitioner of his day. His most common remedy was the application of leeches to the stomach or the head. Opposition by his students and medical colleagues finally put an end to his system of bleeding patients.
