The arm to tongue circulation time is now recognized as a valuable means of determining the efficiency of cardiac function. It is also useful in the study of other diseases in which the velocity of blood flow is altered. Specifically, it measures the time required for the passage of a drug from the point of injection in one of the veins of the antecubital fossa through the systemic veins, the right side of the heart, the pulmonary system, the left side of the heart, and the systemic arteries to a point of perception, usually the tongue.
