ABSTRACT
Environmental temperature tests were performed in three hundred patients with arterial occlusion and in thirty-six patients with venous insufficiency. Twelve normal subjects were also tested. Vasoconstrictor tone was released in almost all patients except in those with severe arterial occlusion, which showed a poor response. Sedation enhanced the value and reliability in patients with high vasomotor tone. Clinical significance of the test was discussed.
