The usual methods of measuring venous pressure in an arm vein entail a relatively high factor of insecurity. As compared to central venous pressure the peripheral venous pressure showed a positive mean deviation of 64.3 per cent, the negative mean deviation amounting to 29.4 per cent. Separate analysis of positive and negative individual deviation makes the differences even more obvious (up to 700 per cent). Methodology, procedure and value of long-term registration of central venous pressure are demonstrated by means of measurement after different dosages of Oxyphedrin. Statistical analysis (t test) showed a significant central venous pressure decrease of 29 per cent after application of 4.0 to 5.0 mg of the drug.
