Resumen

ESCOBAR M, Enrique. Arturo Vivado Orsini and the renewal of psychiatric treatments. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2002, vol.130, n.10, pp.1179-1182. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872002001000015.

During the first half of the twentieth century, new psychiatric treatments were discovered, such as malario therapy, insulin therapy, electroshock, penicillin therapy, and the antialcoholic aversive therapy. These treatments gave a new hope to mental patients, even in our country. It was precisely while Dr. Arturo Vivado, Full Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Chile, worked and taught, that these treatments were progressively applied in Chile. After an effortful carreer, Dr. Vivado was appointed Director of the Psychiatric Asylum in Santiago, in 1945. He was a skillful clinician and pragmatic with his psychological belief, equanimous and affectionate with people. His most important contributions to the specialty are described in this review (Rev Méd Chile 2002; 130: 1179-82)

Palabras clave : History of Medicine, 20th Century; Psychiatric somatic therapies; Therapeutics.
