Heart's Action.

The primary action is to increase the force of the heart's action and arterial tension,

Action of the heart so violent that its pulsations could be heard at a distance (3 drachms, after ten minutes),

As soon as she took a glass of beer there was strong pulsation of the arteries, and the whole face was swollen and of such an alarmingly deep color that we were obliged to forbid the use of wine and beer (30-45 grains),

Pulse fell from 96 to 84 in half an hour (45 grains),

Pulse sunk from 88 to 80 (after five minutes),
