The physical characteristics of the electric current and the various types which find application in medicine are discussed in Chapter I. The second chapter deals with the physiologic problems that are involved. The methods of examination are in a general way sufficiently understood and need no further comment; a number of valuable technical hints, however, are given to overcome the difficulties that are ordinarily left for the
