ELECTRICITY.

ELECTRICITY. Last year I presented to this section a tabulated statement of observations made upon rabbits treated by electricity. This experimental work has been continued along nearly the same lines as heretofore, and some additional effects of electricity not previously anticipated have been noted. The observations on the last series of sixteen cases treated, however, have not been tabulated, for I intend to pursue this work further and ultimately to arrange a complete summary of all observations. In addition to what I have previously said as to polar influence on the spinal cord, lungs, bladder, etc., I have now to announce that with the electrodes placed as I have always used them in the so-called descending and ascending current cases, all of the abdominal viscera are usually affected differently by a different direction of current. The strength of the current used in the last series of experiments varied in different cases http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

Last year I presented to this section a tabulated statement of observations made upon rabbits treated by electricity. This experimental work has been continued along nearly the same lines as heretofore, and some additional effects of electricity not previously anticipated have been noted. The observations on the last series of sixteen cases treated, however, have not been tabulated, for I intend to pursue this work further and ultimately to arrange a complete summary of all observations. In addition to what I have previously said as to polar influence on the spinal cord, lungs, bladder, etc., I have now to announce that with the electrodes placed as I have always used them in the so-called descending and ascending current cases, all of the abdominal viscera are usually affected differently by a different direction of current. The strength of the current used in the last series of experiments varied in different cases
