In this paper an attempt has been made to correlate the investigation of biophysicists with those questions which are of fundamental importance in a study of diathermy. Biophysicists on the one hand have paid little attention to the phenomenon of heat production with the passage of high frequency currents, while those studying diathermy have neglected the problem of cellular correlation and penetration. It is obviously of great importance to know whether the diathermy current passes through the living cell and if so, what are the effects produced. The results of the experiments performed by Christie seem to show pretty conclusively
