Apparatus for measuring arterial and venous pressure and tone
A universal manometer which consists of an instrument with the aid of which the pressure that is created in the sleeve is recorded on an apparatus, and of a mechanism for gradual compression of a dog's ear lobe, and which registers the pulse volume is proposed. One may determine the value of arterial and venous pressure by the curve obtained with the aid of this manometer. The tone of the veins and arteries, as well as the reflex contraction of the vessels after decompression, may likewise be evaluated by analyzing this curve.
