The authors state that this monograph is primarily concerned with the technique of recording arterial blood pressure in patients and is intended for undergraduate and postgraduate students of medicine and for physicians who may not have considered many of the practical principles and problems of accurate blood pressure recording. Its chapters deal successively with the development of methods, physiology, clinical measurement, sources of error, factors that influence pressure, normal values, and diagnostic applications. Also included are sixteen pages of bibliography and three of subject index.
The book is appropriately designated as a primer and contains little not already known by
