Studies Made By Simulating Systole at Necropsy
IV. On the Relation between Pulse Pressure and Cardiac Stroke Volume, Leading to a Clinical Method of Estimating Cardiac Output from Blood Pressure and Age
Data derived from experiments on cadavers have been used to test old methods and to design new methods of estimating cardiac stroke volume from estimations of blood pressure, made both by intra-arterial and standard clinical technics. From the data has been derived a method of estimating stroke volume from pulse pressure, diastolic pressure and age, which has reasonably good accuracy in the cadaver experiments, and which is so simple that it could be easily applied by any physician using the apparatus he now has.
