Derivatio, Deflectio, Parocheteusis, Antilepsis, Antispasis, Revulsion, Cura derivativa seu revulsoria, from derivare, derivatum, (de, and rivua, 'a river,') 'to turn water from its regular course.' When a 'centre of fluxion' is established in a part, for the purpose of abstracting the excited vital manifestations from some other, a derivation is operated. The term Derivation has likewise been applied to the suction power of the heart -a presumed agency in the circulation of the blood.
