Polarization capacity and resistance of salt solutions, agar, erythrocytes, resting and stimulated muscle, and liver measured with a new wheatstone bridge designed for electric currents of high and
Since the early work on electrical impedance of living tissues the subject has become of wider interest. In the attempt to heat the body by means of high frequency electric currents (diathermy) it isExpand
