THE FAMILY PHYSICIAN.
Am Earnest ad Able Pie for PraTa
tlon of DIaeaM.
He should hare constant opportuni
ty to know just what is the physical
condition of each member of the fam
ily in tho absence of any manifest ev
idence of disease. To this end period
ical examinations should be made of
such a character as to reveal any
lurking morbid tendency without
waiting' for its development into
actual disease. There should bo no
such a thing as a discoverable affec
tion remaining undiscovered. Death
from unsuspected heart or kidney dis
ease, for example, should cease to be
possible. There should be no more
histories like the following', now so
A person supposed to be in good
health is hastening along the street,
perhaps hurrying to catch a train.
All at onco he is seen to stagger and
fall. Passers-by rush to his as
sistance, but he gasps a few times,
and, beforo any aid can bo rendered,
ha is dead. An autopsy reveals that
he had fatty degeneration of the
heart, and tho extra demand made
upon the heart by the unusual exer
tion was more than its enfeebled walls
could respond to. He was not aware
of the existence of this condition, but
if his doctor had merely laid his finger
oa his pulse his suspicion would havo
been aroused, and listening to the
heart would immediately have con
firmed it. By proper treatment and
the avoidance of severe exertion the
catastrophe might have been averted
for many years, and the usual limit of
life might perhaps have been at
tained. Or again, a gentleman who has
thought himself quito well goes as
usual in the morning to his place of
business. A few hours later he is
brought home in a carriage in a state
of unconsciousness. In spite of tho
most prompt and judicious treatment
he does not recover from his coma. On
tho contrary, convulsions set in, and
in tho course of a few hours he dica.
Unknown to him or to his family he
has been suffering from Bright's dis
ease, the symptoms being latent up to
the last moment. Yet a very simple
examination would have revealed to
his doctor tho actual condition of af
fairs, and by proper care and proper
treatment the fatal termination might
have been almost indefinitely deferred.
The records of examinations by the
physicians of life insurance companies
show numerous instances in which
Tory serious disease exists without be
ing suspected either by the. patient or
his friends. This fact, In addition to
tho frequency of cases such as those
described above, is enough to show
the oxtreme importance of a system by
which the actual condition of persons
not consciously ill should be periodi
In view of this it should be a part of
the duty of tho family physician to
make a thorough physical examina
tion of every member of tho family at
least twice a year, and in the case of
a feeble or dclicato person at much
shorter intervals. The results of theso
examinations should bo fully recorded.
and the record kept in possession of
the doctor, to bo transmitted to 4us suc
cessor. A record of this kind would
possess immense value, not only for
the persons immediately interested,
but also for their posterity. It is by
knowing the vital history of the par
ents that we know what to oxpect in
the children. Heredity is an influence
which it is difficult to estimate, for tho
reason that the absence of records
prevents our tracing it backward in
the family history. Yet we know that
this influence may shape the physical
destiny of generations to come. Dr.
Holmes has said that the proper time
to begin tho treatment of some dis
eases is a hundred years before the
birth of the patient. He might have
added that tho treatment somotimes
needs to be continued for a hundred
years after his death.
But the opportunity afforded to the
family physician to ward off injurious
influences from those under his caro
might be extended much farther. It
should be within his province to indi
cate what occupations were suitable to
a given youth, and what, in the inter
ests of his health, should be avoided.
He should bo able to prevent a feeble,
ill-nourished, narrow-chested lad being
put behind a desk in a counting-room,
where the tendency to pulmonary dis
ease already existing would certainly
be developed. He should have such a
voice in the selection of boarding-
schools as would prevent the children
being sent to institutions in unhealth
ful localities, or in which there was
danger from defective sanitary pre
cautions. In the selection of a new
dwelling, and even in choosing a sum
mer resort, his judgment as to the
topography and the sanitary condi
tions should have a controlling influ
ence. His supervision should extend
to a proper adaptation of educational
methods to the capabilities of the sev
eral children of the family, and to the
order in which their faculties develop.
Ob this latter point it is high time that
the influence of medioine should be
felt in pedagogics. Mental physiology
should lie at the foundation of every
school curriculum. It is incongruous
that at this age of the world the devel
opment of the mind should be intrusted
uareservedlv to those who have not
ren the most elementary knowledge of
fbo mind's organ, the brain. Andrew
H. Smith. M. D., in Harper's Magazine.
