The title of this paper is misleading, in that it implies that herein will be found a complete review of all of the advances recently made in the physiology of the circulation. It is hardly necessary to state that it would be ímpossible to read merely the titles of the important contributions within the time allotted to the reading of this paper. I take it that a full review of all contributions is not what is wanted as an introduction to a symposium on circulatory affections, but rather a consideration, more or less complete, of those advances which, in the present state of our knowledge of the subject, seem to elucidate, or to promise to elucidate, problems of interest to the clinician.
By way of further limitation it might be suggested that from the border-line subjects a choice be made of those contributions which seem to be the most important.
