Abstract

The abdominal aorta of small mammals is easy of access, and this vessel is well suited for the taking of blood pressure tracings having a good amplitude of pulsation.

The construction of a very simply made and satisfactory membrane manometer is described with which tracings of very large pulse amplitude are easily obtained.
