  Prostration \Pros*tra"tion\, n. [L. prostratio: cf. F.
     prostration.]
     1. The act of prostrating, throwing down, or laying fiat; as,
        the prostration of the body.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     2. The act of falling down, or of bowing in humility or
        adoration; primarily, the act of falling on the face, but
        usually applied to kneeling or bowing in reverence and
        worship.
        [1913 Webster]
  
              A greater prostration of reason than of body.
                                                    --Shak.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     3. The condition of being prostrate; great depression;
        lowness; dejection; as, a postration of spirits. "A sudden
        prostration of strength." --Arbuthnot.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     4. (Med.) A latent, not an exhausted, state of the vital
        energies; great oppression of natural strength and vigor.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: Prostration, in its medical use, is analogous to the
           state of a spring lying under such a weight that it is
           incapable of action; while exhaustion is analogous to
           the state of a spring deprived of its elastic powers.
           The word, however, is often used to denote any great
           depression of the vital powers.
           [1913 Webster]
