Abstract:

It is known that during the course of anthrax the myocardium undergoes degenerative alterations of a fundamental kind, while the mechanism whereby B. anthracis brings about the death of the animal is still in dispute. In view of this fact electrocardiograms were made in an attempt to reveal and follow up the initiation of the degenerative process in the myocardium and to determine whether such research could supply useful information to show whether any of the theories advanced to explain the cause of death in anthrax might be valid.
