Pulsed short waves are part of high frequency therapy and due to their biological influence, effective therapeutic results and the absence of side effects they have many indications: rheumatological, posttraumatic (osteoporosis, algoneurodystrophy), burns, neurological. The aim of this study was to monitor some biochemical parameters, transaminases, total proteins and calcium, and to compare them before and after treatment with pulsed short waves. For the experiment, white female Wistar rats were used, which were divided into four groups (no. = 10 animals groups I, II, III, no.= 5 animals group IV, control): group I, exposed to the dose of 1/80 impulses/sec, 10 min/day, group II, exposed to the dose of 4/400 impulses/sec, 10 min/day, group III, exposed to the dose of 6/600 impulses/sec, 10 min/day, during 15 sessions, and group IV, the unexposed control group. The mean transaminase levels decreased after exposure to pulsed short waves. Total protein levels decreased in groups II and III, without statistically significant differences. Serum calcium values increased in all groups exposed to the action of pulsed short waves.
