Investigating the Body in the Victorian Asylum: Doctors, Patients, and Practices (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Jennifer Wallis

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book explores how the body was investigated in the late nineteenth-century asylum in Britain. As more and more Victorian asylum doctors looked to the bodily fabric to reveal the ‘truth’ of mental disease, a whole host of techniques and technologies were brought to bear upon the patient's body. These practices encompassed the clinical and the pathological, from testing the patient's reflexes to dissecting the brain. Investigating the Body in the Victorian Asylum takes a unique approach to the topic, conducting a chapter-by-chapter dissection of the body. It considers how asylum doctors viewed and investigated the skin, muscles, bones, brain, and bodily fluids. The book demonstrates the importance of the body in nineteenth-century ...

Ventricular Ectopic Beats

by Sics Editore

The most important factor when investigating the aetiology of ventricular ectopic beats (VE’s) is to establish the possible presence of structural heart disease. Should structural heart disease be identified, treatment should firstly be aimed towards the management of this condition and only secondarily towards the arrhythmia itself. Isolated VE’s of a healthy heart are a benign phenomenon which only rarely require treatment. The mere knowledge that the symptoms are not caused by a structural heart disease is often enough to reassure the patient. However, frequent VE’s associated with heart disease (e.g. recent myocardial infarction, heart failure) and hereditary ion channel disorders (e.g. long QT syndrome, polymorphic catecholamine-sensitive ventricular tachycardia) may...

Barbara influenced government policy, to improve psychiatric care and health service complaints procedures, and to establish a hospitals' in...
