Page 320 - An interrupted galvanic current, or a faradic current, can excite various organs to functional activity, thereby aiding their nutrition. 5. It is questionable whether the pathological state causing organic diseases can be in any way influenced by electricity. 6. If functional diseases are benefited, it is in an uncertain manner ; it being undecided whether it is by influencing the molecular condition, the chemical changes, the circulation, or the electrical state of the organ affected — or by the...
Page 90 - On this hinged, also, the equally knotty question of permanency, nor is this strange when we remember, that just in proportion to our knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of a part does our knowledge of the symptomatology of its diseases advance.
