An Edward Burlingame Book. Designed by Katy Homans. A collection of etymological trivia and unusual or specialized terminology. 12 plates /illustrations by Pierre Le -Tan. John Train (born 1989) has written several hundred columns for 'The Wall Street Journal', 'Forbes', 'The New York Times', 'Harvard Magazine', 'The Financial Times' and other publications. The Valsalva maneuver or Valsalva manoeuvre is performed by moderately forceful attempted exhalation against a closed airway, usually done by closing one's mouth, pinching one's nose shut while pressing out as if blowing up a balloon. The technique is named after Antonio Maria Valsalva, a 17th-century physician and anatomist from Bologna whose principal scientific interest was the human ear. 133 pag. Size: 18,5cmx13cm.
