Tuberculin testing of children As the most practicable method for detecting exposure to tuberculosis germs was the theme of a round table discussion by those Prescy it at the meeting of the Putnam county tuberculosis association at the College inn tuesday noon. Contact with tuberculosis is often unknown. The tuberculin test helps to find those who have tuberculosis germs in their bodies. If the response is a a positive a red raised Lump will appear at the site of the injection within forty eight a hours if a a negative there will be no local disturbance. The positive reaction indicates that the person has been exposed to some one who is giving off germs or that he himself is harbouring them. It should be understood that a positive tuberculin test does not mean that the child has tuberculosis but it does mean that i should be examined by a doctor and have his Chest a Rayed to be certain that no harm i being done in the lungs. This helps to find out if the germs have done any damage and How much. It should not cause worry to parents. In Many cases subsequent examinations May show the child to be perfectly sound and healthy and that his body is capable of throwing off the disease or that though the germs Are pres. It. Infection in t progressing. To prevent a child with a positive tuberculin test from getting serious tuberculosis he must be Given a Chance to build Good health and he must no longer be in Contact with some one who has tuberculosis. It is repeated Contact with some one having tuberculosis that is most dangerous therefore search must be made for the spreaders and care for them assured so our children May be Safe. So Long As there is a single ease of tuberculosis among us none of us is Safe. We May say that no germs have Ever entered the bodies of those children who have a a negative findings to the tuberculin a St and if guarded from All Contact with tuberculosis i i o n t i it Nuil a Iii i air my six carriers to see fair Ami news Akit leks to to to new Yoke for a week at fair six carriers of the daily Banner and the Indianapolis news will go to new York City june 25, for a week at the world s fair As guests of these newspapers As a result of them winning trips in a subscription contest which closed monday.
