A condition, which may be induced by number of causes. It must not be confounded with fatigue, which is temporary, whilst debility is generally more permanent. Debility may be real, or it may be apparent; and, in the management of disease, it is important to attend to this. At the commencement of fever, for example, there is often a degree of apparent debility, which prevents the use of appropriate means, and is the cause of much evil. Excitement is more dangerous than debility.
