Excerpt from Lectures on Electricity: In Its Relations to Medicine and Surgery

The numerous calls for this manual since the first edition was exhausted has rendered the present issue a practical necessity. A number of subjects, comparatively new, have been alluded to, among which may be noted descriptions of the "galvanic accumulator" for storing electricity for surgical uses, and of the "induction balance" for locating the position of bullets in the body. The principal addition, however, is the lecture devoted to franklinic electricity. The interest just now excited in this department of electro-therapeutics is simply a periodical revival, with an additional impulse, due to marked improvements in the construction and reliability of the apparatus employed.

In the lecture alluded to will he found illustrations of the latest and most approved machine, with its necessary appliances, descriptions of the various methods of franklinization, and a brief discussion of both its absolute and relative value.

It should be ever borne in mind that the conclusions arrived at concerning the relative value of franklinic and dynamic electricity, will depend upon the methods by which the latter form is used.

Tonic and sedative effects of a very positive character are and have long been obtained through franklinization, but in comparing these effects with those that can be obtained from current electricity, it is essential that partial and incomplete methods should not be substituted for that thoroughness, and attention to detail, imperatively demanded in the proper use of general faradization and central galvanization.
