This treatise describes the construction and uses of a Plethysmograph with optical recordings for use in the digits and the more proximal parts of the limbs.
The arterial pulsations found in various arterial diseases and in other clinical conditions are described. The instrument has also been adapted to record pulsatile changes in the orbit, over the temporal artery, and over the forehead, although the application of the technic to carotid arterial obstruction is not mentioned.
