Electrical Experimenter (05:01) May 1917

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"In view of the heart's most important function and delicate structure, cure, by way of operation is usually impossible. Therefore, the only thing left is to carefully study the heart, locate the trouble and determine the reasons for this trouble. The rapid growth of heart disease and the rapid advancement of science has led to the development of a new instrument called the Electrocardiograph.
This is the May 1917 issue of Electrical Experimenter. The cover story by Hugo Gernsback is “Combating the Torpedo.” Also included is an article on building Tesla-style high-frequency apparatus for medical and lecture use, several radio articles, and an article about the newly invented “Electrocardiograph.”
