Specific Resistance of Body Tissues
The resistive properties of various tissues surrounding the heart were investigated in a number of living dogs. Alternating currents of a frequency varying between 10 and 10,000 c.p.s. have been used for this purpose. Technical problems associated with such measurements are analyzed. The results show that the resistive properties of most tissues are comparable and that the resistivity decreases slowly as the frequency increases.
