"Horror and disgust of the proceeds in Lindsey Fitzharris medicinhistoriska book of mormon"
"If you, the reader, have the pleasant habit to read while you eat, I want to strongly discourage you from Art of cutting in the bodies of the american medicinhistorikern Lindsey Fitzharris."
"Upon further reflection, I also urge you to wait to read the continuation of this review until you sat in you that you have on your plate."
"the Art to cutting in the bodies named in the original The butchering art, or ”slaktkonsten”. The book is about how the surgery in the mid-1800s, transformed from the bloody craft into something that begins to resemble science."
"Fitzharris hero named Joseph Lister (1827-1912), british surgeon and quaker, a dedicated researcher who spent his honeymoon with cutting in the frogs and put the parts under the microscope. He was one of several european doctors and chemists that resulted in the evidence that the infections do not occur by themselves or spread through tainting the air, but that they wander from one wound to the other in the form of small, small living creatures: microorganisms."
"Before in the 1840s learned to anesthetize patients with ether and chloroform was the speed and strength crucial for the surgeon when he went loose with the knife and the bonesaw on the wide awake, restrained, and scared the patient. "
"Thanks to bedövningsmedlen could the doctors help far more injured and sick. It led in turn to the hospitals became overcrowded and the newly-operated patients died like flies in various infectious diseases."
"the Depictions of the ancient health care is rarely appetizing, and no one is going to say to Lindsey Fitzharris lacks a mind for the macabre. The fact is that she the closest to roll around in blood, feces, sawdust and sårvätskor."
"Even outside hospitals where the hygienic conditions in the 1800-century London invidious: ”the Cemetery came to mind of rotten mud”, ”the crypt under the church was filled with tolvtusen rotting bodies”, ”an underground army of nattmän, benkokare, rascal, skitbärarkärringar and budare” looking through ”thousands of kilos of garbage, excrements and animal carcases”."
"Even worse put it was inside the hospital walls:"
"”When the Moldings cut up the stomach of a corpse – its cavities were filled with a bubbling thick soup of undigested food and faeces – have released an obnoxious doftsensation”."
"the”Scattered body parts everywhere, hånflinande heads, the gaping skulls, the bloody mess on the floor and the sickening stench”, ”the rats that knaprade on the bloody spine, and sparvflockarna who pecked at the remains of a spongy lung.”"
"at the same time with colleagues as the Hungarian Ignaz Semmelweis and, in collaboration with the French chemist Louis Pasteur, Joseph Lister, to scientifically prove the importance of wash and disinfect hands and tools. From the beginning cursed the pioneers of their colleagues – Semmelweis died in a mental hospital – but eventually won the fame and fortune, and professor Lister had to cut away a sore on the queen Victoria. ”A hospital,” writes Fitzharris, ”was no longer a place where you died, but you recovered,” the."
"It is dramatically written and graphically told. But it can't be helped: Lindsey Fitzharris story loses energy when she leaves the horror and disgust behind him, and the story of Joseph Lister gets a standard success story. The surgeons will be renligare and patients healthier, but the story becomes blodfattig and pale."
