Same etymon as Passion. An epithet for diseases which seem owing to a greater or less diminution of the strength, or which are without apparent reaction. Thus, passive hemorrhages are such as supervene in debilitated individuals, or under conditions in which increased action of the arteries can scarcely be presumed. The term passive has, also, been given to aneurisms of the heart with extenuation of the parietes; in opposition to active aneurisms, with thickness of the parietes- hypertrophy.
