|Title||Unpublished paper, 'On the action of certain inorganic compounds, when introduced directly into the blood' by James Blake|
|Creator||Blake; James (fl 1841)|
|Description||Blake undertakes experiments in which various saline substances are injected into the venous or arterial systems. He finds, in general, that all the salts having the same base exert similar actions when introduced directly into the blood. He carefully inquires into the phenomena apparently arising from the direct contact of each of the substances above enumerated with the animal tissues; and more particularly into the effects produced on the heart, on the muscular and the nervous tissues, and on the pulmonary and systemic capillaries. |
