Twelve papers which were read before the second conference on medical science at Frankfort, Germany, on the present status of heat therapy are included in this volume, together with a great deal of the discussion relative to them. The papers deal with the practical or therapeutic use of heat, physiologic principles and the physical nature of the instruments used and the energy emitted by them. The last five papers will be of interest to various specialists, as they deal with the use of heat treatment in internal medicine, pediatrics, surgery, gynecology and balneology. The practitioner of physical therapy who is interested in knowing what he is doing when he uses heat will obtain much valuable information from a study of these articles.
