Hemorrhage From The Lungs
( Originally Published 1921 )
In those suffering from heart trouble hemorrhage from the lungs is not ordinarily dangerous, and is important only as indicating that there is considerable congestion of the lungs. Most sufferers are benefited rather than otherwise by the loss of a fair quantity of blood, and while it is terrifying to have people bleed from the lungs, it ought not to be the cause of undue anxiety. No particular treatment is necessary except to keep them perfectly quiet.
I have observed over a period of many years people who had chronic heart trouble and were rather pleased than otherwise when they had experienced a hemorrhage from the lungs. They always felt so much relieved, and believed that they could look forward to additional comfort for some time.
