This is a monograph on thermic methods of registering the amount of blood passing through the skin and underlying tissues in man. After a discussion of the physical and physiologic aspects of temperature changes in tissues, the causes of pathologic disturbances are reviewed briefly. Types of apparatus for measuring temperature and heat changes are described. Clinical applications to dermatology in the early diagnosis of diseases involving changes in blood velocity and volume, such as acrocyanosis, acrodermatitis atrophicans, stasis dermatitis, etc., are discussed. Applications to other branches of medicine, such as anesthesia, surgery, and internal medicine, are also touched upon. This monograph contains a wealth of information and a fairly complete bibliography.
