For this edition it has seemed necessary to make no alterations to the “Action List” which concluded this chapter in the first edition and which is reproduced on p. 792. This is not because argument has ceased as to what is best to be done, nor because of a satisfying degree of success in clinical outcome. Rather, it is because the very necessary improvements in “categorization” (the “naming of names” to which the Chinese rightly pay such attention) and understanding of underlying mechanisms have not involved aspects crucial to management while the two factors that contribute most to the continuing substantial mortality (at least in “developed” countries) have attracted little attention and less direct action.
