Doctors used to take the pulse too, and for more than the rate! We acupuncturists often comment on the quality (thin, thready, wiry, tight, slippery, choppy, etc) and balance of the pulse. The balance across organs and meridians is more of an Eastern Medicine approach, but the pulse qualities that used to be shared have fallen out of Western Medicine, which I think is a shame because they contain so much information!
I explain this to my patients all the time so I was thrilled to see an example at the Musée d’Orsay despite how this poor woman was, for sensual effect, painted as nude during the exam. She looks cold. Give her a blanket!
The painting is Before the Operation by Henri Gervex in which Dr Péan is teaching his discovery of the compression of blood vessels at Saint-Louis hospital. Dr Jules-Emile Péan was a late 19th century French surgeon and is depicted standing and lecturing. He is a controversial figure as he may or may not have invented the forceps pictured and is described in a sensationalized memoir by Swedish physician Axel Munthe as “the terrible butcher of Hôpital St. Louis.” 🧐
