To the Editor: Ewy (1) clearly shows the use of the abdominojugular test in evaluating an increased central blood volume in patients. Although the article by Burch and Ray (2) on the suggested mechanism of the hepatojugular reflux in congestive heart failure is correctly referenced, Dr. Ray is incorrectly referred to as Bay several times in the discussion of this important diagnostic maneuver. As a physician who continues to uphold a tradition of excellence in clinical medicine, Dr. Ray would surely appreciate this correction.
