. . . .5 and 22 HIRTH INHALER . . . . . H ACKNOWLEDGMENT THE author wishes to acknowledge his indebtedness in the preparation of this small volume. To literature which has been published upon Inhalation Therapy. To individual members of the Medical Profession. To the British Medical Association for permission to reprint the description of the Collison Inhaler from the British Medical Journal of February 2nd, 1935, which appears in the addenda. He also wishes to acknowledge his indebtedness for permission to reprint extracts from contemporary literature on the treatment of asthma, pneumonia, and T.

B. by inhalation, which also appear in the addenda. FOREWORD MUCH has been written upon the subject of treatment by inhalation of drugs, but a considerable proportion has appeared in the German language, and particularly so about the fine atomisation of liquids and their absorp tion by the respiratory tract. Few, if indeedany, busy medical men can find time to read what has been written, so Major Collison has placed the Profession under an obligation in making so complete a review of this literature and reducing it within the compass of this small and abbreviated work.

By great personal effort and experiment he has pro duced a machine which can be relied on as an instrument of precision whenever required, and the dosage can be reckoned correctly. Major Collison has not attempted to encroach on the functions of the doctor or tried to teach him his job. He has contented himself with explaining many of the points in relation to inhalation which have required elucidation. For example, he makes it clear how much drug is absorbed and in what period, and deals with the fineness xii FOREWORD and density of the vapour which are necessary before the ultimate ramifications of the respiratory tract can be reached.

This Brochure will enable a medical man to explain the working of the Collison Inhaler to his patients in a way which should be understandable by all. Having prescribed this method of treatment in many cases, I am pleased to write this brief foreword commend ing the perusal of Major Collison s book to every practis ing physician and to such surgeons as can spare the time to extend their knowledge in this interesting field of work.

BRUCE BRUCE-PORTER.
