Rectal Feeding and Medication

  • Wm. Julius Mickle

In reading a paper on rectal feeding and medication I am not desirous of unduly extolling that form of alimentation and treatment, or of substituting it for the more direct, usual and natural methods, where the latter are feasible and effective. Deprecating any misunderstanding on that point, I speak in the first place of the principal conditions in which rectal feeding may prove useful in asylum-practice. These I will speak of in groups of diseases, or of cases, loosely bound together, for the nonce, by the tie of suitability for the use of nutritive enemata.
