“Forced Feeding,” with Special Reference to a Case continuously fed by the Nasal Tube for over Nine Years

  • David Blair (a1)
Extract

The subject of the few remarks I have to offer is one with which those who attend the insane soon become familiar. No other class of physicians can speak of it with more authority. It is not a wide field, and at the first blush would not appear to lend itself to much divergence of view. Yet from the opinions one occasionally hears expressed, I think it is expedient that our attitude towards the questions associated with artificial feeding should now and again be reviewed. When to feed artificially, its relative dangers, its moral effect, or even the best method to adopt, are points upon which observers differ.
