ABSTRACT

In this treatise climatic cures for children are discussed from a rational and intelligent point of view. Degkwitz emphasizes the fact that in most children it is the altered routine and the change in climate that produce beneficial effects, rather than the specific properties of the climate alone. However, there are certain climatic factors, such as the amount of sunshine, the humidity, the altitude, the temperature and the wind, which should be taken into consideration in choosing the climate most favorable for certain illnesses. In some instances the degree of severity of the illness may be the deciding factor in the choice of climate. The basic principles involved in determining the proper climate for an individual child are thoroughly analyzed. The illnesses chiefly considered by the author are nervous disorders, allergic diseases, cardiac diseases, respiratory infections and tuberculosis. This monograph offers a great deal of practical value to the physician
