A physical dissertation on drowning in which submersion, commonly called drowning, is shewn to be a long time consistent with the continuance of life, from a Variety of unexceptionable tho' surprising Facts, related by the most eminent and judicious Authors, and confirmed by incontestable Evidence; which Facts are reconciled and accounted for, from the strictest Laws of the Animal Oeconomy. To which is subjoined, The proper Measures for Recovery and Relief; the Obligations we lie under to practise them are clearly suggested, and strongly enforced; intended for the Good of Mankind, by restoring Life to many Persons who are erroneously supposed to be irretrievably drowned, suffocated or strangled. Recommended particularly to the Consideration of the Surgeons of the Navy and Army, who have frequent Opportunities of practising the Methods recommended, &c. With an Appendix, containing some Methods for the Recovery of those who hang themselves, and of Children supposed to be born dead. By a physician
