As so many times repeated, real pain must be stopped, and morphin,

either by the mouth or hypodermically, should be used to the point

of stopping such pain. If the patient is a young child, codein

sulphate or the deodorized tincture of opium may be used in the dose

found sufficient, and either one will act satisfactorily. The dose

given should be small but repeated sufficiently often to stop the

pain. The dose necessary for the given individual will soon be

learned, and that dose may be repeated at such intervals as the

condition may require. Sometimes the hypnotic selected, if one is

needed, will be sufficient to quiet the cardiac aches or pains.
