ELECTRICITY IN GYNECOLOGY.

ELECTRICITY IN GYNECOLOGY. The above was the title of a paper read at the recent meeting of the Alabama Medical Association, by Dr. W. E. B. Davis, of Birmingham. He believes that ultra-enthusiam has led to frequent failure in the use of this remedy, but says there should be no question as to its importance as a therapeutic agent in gynecological practice when such men as Apostoli, the Keiths, Engelmann and other competent observers, who have had experience in its application, report most satisfactory results. He advises the use of the current of the Edison circuit, direct from the dynamo, when it can be had, and thereby avoid the annoyances and inconveniences of a battery. Portable batteries have proved very disappointing for the administration of high intensities, and his work has been confined principally to office practice. Great stress is laid on the importance of the application of the faradic current in sub-involution http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

The above was the title of a paper read at the recent meeting of the Alabama Medical Association, by Dr. W. E. B. Davis, of Birmingham. He believes that ultra-enthusiam has led to frequent failure in the use of this remedy, but says there should be no question as to its importance as a therapeutic agent in gynecological practice when such men as Apostoli, the Keiths, Engelmann and other competent observers, who have had experience in its application, report most satisfactory results. He advises the use of the current of the Edison circuit, direct from the dynamo, when it can be had, and thereby avoid the annoyances and inconveniences of a battery. Portable batteries have proved very disappointing for the administration of high intensities, and his work has been confined principally to office practice. Great stress is laid on the importance of the application of the faradic current in sub-involution
