Electrodermatography is the recording of the electrical resistance of the skin for purposes of internal organ analysis and status of function. In skin conductance, an electrodermographer imposes an imperceptible current across the skin and measures how easily it travels through the skin. The basic concept for all of today's ElectroDermal Screening [EDS] devices was the original invention of Dr. Reinhardt Voll, the instructor's original mentor. The author, having practiced ElectroDermal Screening for more than thirty years, can attest there is no other bedside form of palpable diagnostics of such utility and rapidity than EDS. The usual patient scan is less than 5 minutes and corroborates the chief complaints as well as uncovers pathologic and etiologic factors which should point to laboratory or radiological confirmations.
