Clinical Heart Disease. The disease became widely known through his early clinical' teaching. Dr. Levine also helped diagnose pernicious anemia. Dr. Levine was an innovator in the treatment of coronary thrombosis patients. He substituted arm-chair recuperation for bed rest. He was one of the early users of the mechanical--electro-cardiograph to study heart patients, but he impressed upon his students the value of simple bedside methods of examination. He believed a physician should use the cardiogram to supplement his stethoscope."
