Tuberculosis Xray

Consumption or tuberculosis is an infection that typically affects the lungs. Symptoms usually include a chronic cough and fever.

Detective William Murdoch's fiance, Elizabeth Milner, died of consumption (Except the Dying).

Dr. Julia Ogden ran a class where several women would gather outdoors to do breathing exercises. These were meant to strengthen the lungs and help fend off consumption. William Murdoch was skeptical about the effectiveness of such exercises ("Let Loose the Dogs").

Arthur Conan Doyle visited Toronto on a quest to find a cure for consumption. His wife, Louise Hawkins, was dying of it. Doyle had heard of an Asian medical treatment called "cupping" that was being practiced in Toronto ("Belly Speaker").
