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]
