ABSTRACT
A successful method for obtaining a motion picture record of blood flow in the superficial vessels in the skin of human subjects is described. A monitored television camera circuit is used with simultaneous visual and sound tape recording which can later be transferred to standard movie film. Magnifications up to several thousand power can he achieved with reflected. low intensity, cool lighting. Individual red blood cells flowing in a single capillary loop can be distinguished and measurements of capillary diameter and blood flow rates are easily made. The technique is applicable to the study of the physiology and pharmacology of the cutaneous microcirculation.
