Observations on the Daily Changes in Venous Pressure and Weight in a Case of Chronic Congestive Heart Failure
A study of the effect of salt administration and digitalis withdrawal as separate factors in the production of congestive heart failure in the same patient is presented. The results indicate two different types of congestive failure relating to these modes of precipitation. Additional information is obtained as to the temporal precedence of weight and venous pressure in congestive heart failure induced by the aforementioned methods.
