ABSTRACT
The article cites a study on the flow of blood in the calf muscles during and after exercise. Furthermore, it sheds lights on measurements with Doppler ultrasound and venous occlusion plethysmography in healthy subjects and in patients with arterial occlusive disease. Exercise of the calf muscles is a more physiologic way to stress the circulation in the calf and can give more information about the functional reserve capacity. The ultrasonic Doppler velocimeter has a much better resolution in time but cannot determine volume flow. Volume flow is measured by venous occlusion plethysmography but this method can only be used when there are no movement artifacts.
