Excerpt from An Experimental Research Into Surgical Shock: An Essay Awarded the Cartwright Prize, for 1897 Considering the great importance of the subject, it is a matter for surprise that there has not as yet been presented, so far as I am aware, an account of any considerable experimental research into surgical shock. The present research had progressed but little before it became apparent that its scope was so comprehensive, and involved so many unsettled problems in physiology, that a clearly satisfactory termination could not be hoped for. The aim has been to obtain graphic data furnished in the performance of various surgical operations or by the infliction of different injuries. For the sake of clearness certain hypotheses have been advanced in a part of the research, with the understanding that they are subject to future change. In the main I have aimed to obtain the results bearing on the subject, without always assuming to be able to explain the mechanism of their production. The magnitude of the subject and the great number of unsolved questions of physiology involved must serve as my apology for the incompleteness of the research. All the experiments were performed on unselected dogs, in regular order as they were supplied by the laboratory servant. Complete records of each experiment, including the tracings, description of the animal, of the experiment, and of the autopsy, have been preserved. Only a sufficient number of tracings to serve as illustrations have been published. In all, one hundred and forty-eight animals have been subjected to experiment.
