ABSTRACT
A short historical note on plethysmography is given and the development of the modern computerized pneumoplethysmograph is described. The computeraided pneumoplethysmogram (CAP), with proper programming, makes possible numerous computations that give new, useful, and rapid information about the patient. New applications of the CAP will quickly develop and the data collected will be quickly analyzed and displayed.

    Circulation time (the transit time for a bolus of blood through the circulatory system) is a potential index of cardiac dysfunction in chronic heart failure (HF). In healthy subjects, circulation time falls as cardiac output (Q) rises during exercise, however little is known about this index in...
