Comparative study of AC and DC fields on wound healing


Devendra Singh


The present study was conducted with an objective to observe the wound healing capacity under the influence of alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) fields. To fulfil the aim of the study rats and rabbits were taken as experimental animals. These animals were divided into two groups i.e. experimental and control. Equal strength of animals were taken in each of the groups. During the study period It was observed that the surface area of the DC stimulated wound healed faster in comparison to AC stimulated wound. It was also found that the volume of AC stimulated wound healed faster than DC stimulated wound. Eventually, it was observed that stimulated wound healed rapidly in experimental animals in comparison to control group.
