Dr. Somerville has related a remarkable case in which a very slow pulse of fifteen to twenty per minute was found on one occasion after an error in diet, and seemed, therefore, connected with irritation of the gastric terminals of the vagus; the slowing was succeeded by quick, tumultuous heart-action, and during this stage marked benefit was derived from bromide (Practitioner, March, 1876). It was, however, given with belladonna.
