In the study of the circulation in the normal individual, Eyster, Hooker, Clark and others have placed particular emphasis on the variations and importance of the venous pressure. The results of these investigations have given evidence that the venous pressure is altered greatly by varied demands on the circulatory mechanism. It has been observed that the venous return of blood to the heart apparently regulates in large part the arterial output. The venous pressure determines the degree of filling of the ventricular chambers in diastole, and this determines the amount of blood expelled at each contraction of the ventricles. An
