A method is described for calculating the pulmonary blood volume in man by dye dilution technique. With respect to mixing and nonmixing partial volumes, the pulmonary blood volume was found to be the only nonmixing part of the central circulation. The pulmonary blood volume resulted by subtracting the slope volume (Newman) from the central blood volume (Hamilton). A mean pulmonary blood volume of 405 ml 1= 237 ml/m²) was found in 13 normal persons; it amounted to 7.4 per cent of the total blood volume. In calculating the pulmonary blood volume by comparing peripheral intravenous and intracardial dye injection, there was no difference, which was taken as proof for the right conception. It was shown that the pulmonary blood volume is related to the cardiac output. With increased cardiac output an increased pulmonary blood volume was observed.

    The optical blood volume curve sometimes presents either a positive or a negative rapid and reversible variation (spike) during the step of the dialysate conductivity, automatically set by the monitor for the ionic dialysance (ID) measurement. We studied whether this feature was in relation with...
