ABSTRACT
Pulmonary capillary `wedge' pressure (PCWP) was measured before and after transfusion of 1 and 2 units of blood @ S and 10 mI/mm. in 40 adult cases of chronic severe anemia (CSA). The cases were randomly divided into 4 sub- groups of 10 cases each. Following blood transfusion (BT), PCWP increased significantly in all the 4 subgroups (p < 0.001). The highest rise in PCWP was recorded when 2 units of blood were transfused at a rate of 10 mI/mm, and the rise was minimum when 1 unit of blood was transfused @ 5 mI/mm. Out of the two variables-speed and amount of BT-the amount was more Important. It is, therefore, concluded that administration of 2 units of blood in case of CSA at a rate of S or 10 mi/mm is not desirable and that transfusion of 1 unit of blood @ S mi/mm is quite safe.

    A hydrostatic rise in forearm vascular transmural pressure may be associated with an increase in forearm blood flow (FBF) that causes pain. To test this hypothesis, forearm vascular transmural pressure was elevated in eight male volunteers by a series of 1-min hypobaric exposures of the left arm...
