ABSTRACT
The article discusses a clinical case of pharmacologic vasodilation. Prolonged measurement of foot blood flow with the mechanical plethysmograph filled with air or water may be inconvenient to some patients. Since the present study required flow measurements over a period of 4 hours, it was attempted to employ the strain-gauge plethysmograph using a mercury-in-silastic tube attached to the foot around the instep. It is well known that correct measurements can be made only in parts with a circular cross-section at the site of the measurement.
