The author has used a combination of the methods of Meakins and Davies, Field, Bock, Gildea and Lathrop to determine the minute-volume output of blood in man. Figures for the cardiac output in healthy individuals are given. Patients with decompensated cardiac disease, compensated mitral stenotic lesions or bronchial asthma have a diminished cardiac output; with aortic regurgitation, exophthalmic goiter and toxic adenomas of the thyroid gland, the output is greater than normal.
