Dipstick specific gravity readings may be elevated in the presence of moderate to increased amounts of protein or ketones.[3,4] Urines with specific gravity [is greater than]1.025 cannot be measured reliably with current ionic concentration methodology and should be tested with a refractometer or urinometer.[3] When you need highly accurate specific gravity measurements, however, use osmolality determinations.[4]

Reflecting his apparent interest in new technology, he was later responsible for placing an ambitious order for four stethoscopes, four cases of dissecting instruments, four barometers, four atmospheric thermometers, four register thermometers, three rotatory electro-magnetic machines, four urinometers, six pluviometers, one case of acupuncture needles, and three microscopes of "good power for pathological purposes for Quebec, Montreal, & Kingston." (52) To place this order the doctor used a standard issue form printed in the 1840s, but only the category of stethoscope was considered routine enough to have been pre-printed; the other more original requests had to be added to the list in handwriting.
