Abstract

Electricity is not unlike all other things in medicine, as regards its invariable tendency to do good even when applied under the most favorable conditions and in the most careful manner. Yet, a great deal of good can be done with it when it is wisely used. It has, I think, been used in medicine about sixty-five or seventy years, and during that period nearly all diseases have been subjected more or less to its influence—usually without any regard to system and frequently without any evidence of reason. This is probably due to the lack of knowledge as to its method of influencing living tissues. During the last few years it has received more attention from scientific men, and its effect upon the human system has been quite thoroughly investigated. The conditions in which it is likely to prove valuable as a means of treatment, have, to a great extent,
