TREATMENT OF PUERPERAL FEVER

C. S. BACON
1903 Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)  
The mortality from puerperal fever can be reduced to almost nothing by the proper management of labor and childbed. This has been proven by the results obtained in the best maternity hospitals. Mild cases of infection can not be entirely prevented, but they cease to be a source of great anxiety to the physician and of danger to the mother.
