Quebracho, Aspidosperma. Mariasi y Larrion, who has investigated quebracho, says of it: “The principal action of this drug is to cause a diminution of the number of pulse-beats per minute and lessen the frequency of the respiratory act.” It is of value in dyspnea due to asthma or heart disease, asthma with emphysema, uremic asthma, and dyspnea due to fatty degeneration of the heart.
