Abstract:

The author presents a literature survey on the biological action of magnetic fields and the results of experimental-morphological investigations, carried out at his laboratory. As demonstrated, direct magnetic field, 7,000 oersted in intensity, and an indirect on 50 cycles per sec., 200 oersted in intensity possessed a marked biological effect. In the mentioned physical conditions and an equal exposure 6 12 hours the indirect field proved to be more active. Direct and indirect magnetic fields proved to induce disturbance of hemodynamics and lymph circulation. Histological investigations demonstrated a paretic dilatation of capillaries, edema of the lungs and of the testicles. Dynamic investigations pointed to normalization of morphological picture 30 days after the field action. The magnetic fields direct and indirect failed to depress the regeneration.
