The first chapter of this compact handbook is devoted to the first principles of electricity, and thence the student is led to the consideration of sources of supply, medical batteries and accessories, and a special study of the constant current and its modifications. The remaining chapters are assigned to physiology, diagnosis, electric surgery, and general and special therapeutics. The book contains eleven plates and seventy illustrations. The subject of the Roentgen ray is not dealt with by the author, who considers the x-ray not electricity in the ordinary acceptance of the term, but rather a form of radiant energy with properties peculiar to itself.
