Excerpt from Electricity: Its Medical and Surgical Applications, Including Radiotherapy and Phototherapy
The author has long been convinced that non-medicinal methods of therapeusis do not receive in either the medical curriculum or ln medical practice the attention merited b... y their real value. It follows necessarily, therefore, that these remedial agents are not appreciated and utilized as fully as they should be by the regular practitioner.
Of these one of the most important is the electrical current, the uses of which in medicine and surgery have developed so enormously in the last fifteen years that it is impossible to discuss all of them fully in a single volume of convenient size. Nevertheless, in the following pages an effort has been made at least to mention all the ways, direct and indirect, in which electricity may be of assistance in the diagnosis and treatment of both medical and surgical affections, and to give detailed consideration to the action and the methods of employing the current in the various conditions of disease in which it is beneficial. To possess any value, a work on such a vast field cannot be based on the experience of any individual. It must also re¿ect the knowledge of the great body of investigators and observers who have developed the subject to its present status. In aiming to give_a survey of the entire field, the author has endeavored to exercise conservative judgment and to offer a work suitable both for students and practitioners.
