Aphonia Loss Of Voice
Source: A Newly Discovered System Of Electrical Medication
This affection requires treatment variously, as it depends on one or
another procuring cause.
If it be the result of recent "cold," inducing acute catarrhal
irritation in the larynx, treat first as for common cold, and
close the sitting as follows: Place N. P., long cord, of A D
current, in good medium force, upon back of neck or in the mouth, and
treat three to five minutes, twice a day, with P. P., over the front
parts of the air pipe in the neck; mostly over the larynx--Adam's
If it be from paralysis of the larynx, treat with B D current, rather
strong force; placing P. P., long cord, on back of neck or in the
mouth, and work with N. P. over the larynx, and somewhat over the air
tube of the neck generally. Treat three to five minutes, daily.
If, as is sometimes the case, the difficulty proceeds from a relaxation
of the diaphragm, with general sagging down of the thoracic and
abdominal viscera, so as to draw upon the trachea, then treat the whole
trunk tonically, using the B D current. Place the N. P. low on back of
neck, and treat with P. P. over the abdomen and thorax, and especially
all around the edge of the diaphragm--along the lower line of the false
ribs. Treat with medium strength of current, ten minutes, three times a
week. The aim is to contract all the relaxed parts, so to relieve the
larynx from the strain upon it.
