ESHLEMAN, Isaac Stauffer, physician, born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, 22 May 1820. He was graduated at Jefferson College, Philadelphia, in 1851, and began practice at: once in that City. He claims to be among the first to use stimulants in pneumonia, and also to have proved that blisters are not repellents, but stimulants. He found that cerebrospinal meningitis yielded to free depletion if made use of early in the stage, and followed by chloroform taken internally. This experience prepared him for the use of chloral, which he has successfully prescribed in every form of convulsion. In 1866 he used with success a narrow blade forceps for rigid as uteri, having failed with the usual remedies, and without an unpleasant symptom the delivery took place. He claims that fractures, which involve the joints where the callus is washed by synovial fluids, are capable of forming good bony union if well adjusted and kept in apposition for a much longer period than usual.
Dr. Eshleman is the author of papers showing originality of practice in placenta previa. Of this, Dr. Davis, of Wilkes-Barre, in an address said: "Dr. Eshleman has opened a new era in the treatment of placenta previa." He is vice president of the Philadelphia County medical society, member of the Northern medical society, and president of the Medico chirurgical society of Philadelphia.
