Giulio Ceradini (1844-1894).
GIULIO CERADINI was born on March 17, 1844, in Milan,
Italy. In 1862, he entered the School of Medicine of the
University of Pavia and graduated in Medicine and Surgery on
August 1868 at the University of Palermo, where, after the
death of his father, he followed his twin brother Cesare, who
was professor of Construction Theory at the School of Engineering
at that university. He married in the fall of 1868 to a
distinguished Milanese lady, Carlotta Bozzolo, and he then
returned to Milan and worked in the Ospedale Maggiore.
His early medical experiences and considerations were published
in a research report (7) on the causes of death in the
course of immersion. In 1869, he moved to Heidelberg,
Germany, where he was mentored by Hermann von Helmholtz
(1821–1894). During this period, he published his first
important paper (11), where he introduced the Greek terms
‘mejokardie’ and ‘auxokardie’ to indicate the minimum
heart volume at the end of systole and the maximal heart
volume at the end of diastole; both these terms, now forgotten,
were used in many physiology textbooks for more
than a century.
