A statistical analysis of over 10,000 urine specimens is presented. Special attention was given to the specific gravity of urines in relation to their reaction and to pathological findings.
Some significant correlations have been discovered which may have important clinical applications, especially with reference to the management of nephritis and allied diseases.
The data involved in this report represent consecutive urinalyses performed in approximately a year's time in an active general hospital. The bulk of the urinalyses were single morning specimens from hospital patients. A small fraction were 24 hour specimens. Less than half were single specimens from out-patients.
