The Signs and Causes of Peripneumonia

  • François Du Port


In peripneumonia there is dyspnoea and the cheeks are red, the eyes protrude, a weight drags on the chest and breastbone, hypochondrium and back. The expired breath is hot and cough distresses, the sputum is bloody, foamy, tinged with bile, and restless fever is very wearing: the pulse is irregular and soft. But peripneumonia is a double ill: the true one is engendered by a flow of hot blood, but the false is more common and due to a humour of subtler, sharper flow.
