Pneumonia: A Pediatric Clinic, 1938
Scope and Contents
Black and white film with sound depicting Isaac A. Abt, MD giving a lecture on childhood pneumonia to a class. A student gives the details and symptoms of the patient, a 28-month-old girl. Abt examines the child, performs a pulmonary examination with percussion on her chest and back, listens to her heart with a stethoscope, and displays an x-ray of her chest. Students are asked to examine the patient, performing the tests Abt demonstrated. Abt then describes the various pneumonias of childhood in great detail: their frequency, causes, symptoms, and diagnosis, the care of sick children, and his hope for the future development of a specific treatment for pneumonia. He explains that the patient seems to have primary bronchopneumonia while also discussing the difficulties of diagnosing pneumonia in infants and young children.
