Recently wider recognition has been given to the essential role microchannels play in peripheral blood flow and its disturbances. This has led to the revival of an old method, the study of surface microcirculation in man. An improved microscopic and microphotographic apparatus has aided in this endeavor. However, it became evident that the range of physiologic variations had to be more clearly established before evaluation of deviations from the norm, morphologic or rheologic, could be attempted.
The nail bed, medial malleoli, ventral forearm, and bulbar conjunctiva were examined routinely; areas with overt lesions were also included. To establish a range
