Capacitive Properties of Body Tissues
The electric capacity of various tissues surrounding the heart has been investigated in living dogs, using frequency ranges from 10 to 10,000 c.p.s. Electrode polarization, a serious source of error in such measurements, has been corrected for. Discussion of our results and of resistivity data previously obtained in body tissues proves that the electric properties of body tissues are primarily resistive ones.
