Description

Excerpt from North American Archives of Medical and Surgical Science, 1835, Vol. 2 In order to thoroughly comprehend this position, let us inquire into the nature Of spasm. The Greeks gave the name o'm'adpwg to every kind of convulsion, and by modern nosologists convulsions are ranked amongst the spasmi. The term is now usually applied to involuntary contractions, especially of the voluntary muscles; and these, again, have been divided into tonic spasms, which con sist in permanent rigidity Of the muscles concerned, - Of which we have an example in common cramp; and into clonic spasms, which consist in alternate contractions and relaxations, Of which we have an example in the convulsions of children.
