Electrifying Medicine: How Electricity Sparked A Medical Revolution

PUB1699

Limited Supply.

1995. Brenda L. Himrich and Stew Thornley. In this informative book, the authors trace the story of electricity in medicine. Over the years, medical science has learned that the human body is a "body electric." This knowledge has led to electrical "medicines" to correct heart problems, move muscles, and reduce pain. A once-startling medical technique that takes advantage of the connection between life and electricity-sending electricity directly into a patient’s body-has become commonplace. As the authors illustrate, these medical uses of electricity form a fascinating story of discovery, false hopes, pure nonsense, hopeful research, and exhilarating triumphs. 88 pages, hard cover, color and b&w photos. Grades 5 and up.
