In this monograph are presented the recent experimental studies and the development of a method for recording continuously, during a pulse cycle, the rate of blood flow into and out of the digit of man. The author discusses in some detail the numerous problems and variables involved in the venous occlusive method employed, and the possible sources of error where inexact technics are employed. Many recordings are presented for detailed analysis.
It is the belief of the author that the method described ". . . should be useful in the understanding of peripheral circulation in normal and abnormal vascular states."
