Medicine Through the Ages

Today's medical advances are often taken for granted. Consider medicine during America's great Civil War. Surgeons would probe wounds and amputate patient after patient without sterilizing instruments or even washing their hands! The concept of antiseptic surgical technique was unknown. In fact, the first antibiotic to be utilized to treat infection was Penicillin, which was first used during World War II. This series is a fascinating look back at what we take for granted when it comes to our health and medical care. Content is high interest, low readability with a 5th-6th grade reading level. (Lexile scores available at the publisher, Capstone's website). Books are well illustrated and include bold vocabulary words and glossary, a period timeline, additional book and web resources, and research topics. SC. 48 pgs. ~ Deanne
