Life Restored by Salt
ft;-"' it f
The injection of a saline solution is
reported from the Memorial hospital,
Brooklyn, to have brought back to life
a child who was really dead. Vera
Clark. 11 years old. of No. 1133 Ber
gen street, Brooklyn, had bathed in
the surf excessively, and several!
weeks ago she complained of pains in
her abdoman. Dr. Herman E. Street
was called in, and he pronounced the
case one of appendicitis and advised j
immediate operation. The parents
would not consent, and for several
days the child was permitted to suffer, i
her condition becoming worse. Final- j
ly the parents consented to an opera- j
tion, and Dr. John Hubbell Schall was J
called in. Dr. Schall said the child's
condition was too serious and refused
Vera was sent to the Memorial hos
pital, and on July 14 Dr. Schall con
sented to operate, after telling the
parants that without the operation
the child must certainly die, and if
the operation were performed there
would not be one chance in a hundred
of her sun-iving the shock.
Assisted by Dr. Street, Dr. Walter
Isard and Dr. Weigie, Dr. Schall ap
plied the knife, removed the appen
dix and a tumor as large as a man s
fist, which had grown on it, and 5 in
ches of the 'intestines. The ; patient
then collapsed. She no longer
breathed. The heart had ceased to
"beat. Her limbs grew oold. All the
doctors beclared her dead. In a
moment of inspiration Dr. Schell
called for a salt solution. With this
he washed the intestines and the ab
dominal cavity, sewed up the incisions
and then injected a quantity of the
solution into-the veins. Slowly, but
surely, life returned. The spark was
small the first day. It increased and
was watched day and night, increas
ing all the time." Today the child is
one of the happiest patients in the
hospital, surrounded with her toys
and on the high road to recovery,
having less than two weeks ago been
