COHSET3 AND CONSUMPTION.
A Radical Differeace in Bfal« and F*
male Breathing—Cnriou* Conclusion.
The mechanism of breathing may be
effected by two separate and distinct
sorts of nerves and muscles. The upper
portion of the body, including the ribs
and thorax generally, may expand, and
thereby draw air into the lungs. This is
termed costal breathing, literally rib
breathing. On the other hand, the mus¬
cles of the abdomen may come into play,
and by depressing the diaphragm, In may this
thus increase the chest cavity.
type, termed abdominal or diaphragmatic
breathing, the muscles of the upper part
of the body remain inactive. Bocrhaave,
in 1744, observed a radical difference in
male and female breathing. The mas¬
culine tvi e is abdominal, the female is
On these premises Dr. Thomas J. Mays,
of Philadelphia, has based an interesting
investigation. It appears highly breath¬ proba¬
ble that the reason of the costal
ing of women is that they compress the
diaphragmatic region with corsets, so and as
to suppress all but costal breathing,
so as to develop the latter highly. Dr.
Mays subjected a number of Indian
women to examination. He used a mod¬
ification of Paul Bert’s pneumograph.
By this apparatus a trace indicative of
the extent of chest and of abdominal
movement was produced so as to show
in graphic form the relative proportions
of the two types of breathing in the same
subject. The result was that be found
the majority of Indian women to breathe
almost entirely with the diaphragm.
Their pneumograph tracings correspond¬
ed closely with those of white men. As
the Indian women do not wear corsets,
this investigation tended to prove that
corsets were the cause of costal breath¬
The most curious conclusion, however,
is the possible influence of corsets on
consumption. Admitting that they are
the cause of costal breathing, and accept¬
ing the theory that costal breathing is a
corrective of consumption, a plea for
these articles of attire is at once estab¬
lished as preventives of the dreaded mal¬
ady. The possibility of this benefit is
increased by the consideration that men
are, on the whole, more subject to it
than women, and that Indians seem
peculiarly its subjects. Yet the case is
far from proved, and it would be rash to
consider the corset side of the question
as proved. Admitting even that corsets
diminish consumption, the account
against them, when used injudiciously,
must be regarded as far from balanced
by any good of this sort that may be
attributed to them.—Scientific American.
