ABSTRACT
We offer a new test for the study of the vascular patient. It is easy to apply and has a minimum of undesirable effects. The calcium, used as a tracing substance, has beneficial results in vascular pathology and so gives the F-D1 ACT test both a diagnostic and therapeutic value. Through F-D1 ACT, it is possible to ascertain the value of a blood vessel dilative substance, which before had to be more or less guessed. In this respect our test makes treatment more precise and economical, since it permits one to use the correct medicine for each given case. The normal time values are around 20 sec. (8 to 30) but on condition that they are bilateral and that there are no hidden arterial diseases. This test docs not exclude any other now used, but we attribute great value to F-D1 ACT, even in cases in which the oscillometry shows opposing values, since oscillometry measures the elastic arterial system and F-D1 ACT measures the whole arterial system.
