The Blood Pressure and its Disorders, including Angina Pectoris


    DR. PLESCH divides his book into three parts. Part 1 contains a description of the principles and construction of an instrument which records the pressure changes within the brachial artery when this vessel is subjected to compression. The variations in the records obtained in different cardiac and peripheral vascular diseases are discussed. There is much useful clinical and physiological information in this part of the book, but the arrangement of the material makes it difficult to discover. As an additional instrument in the armamentarium of the cardiologist it is of considerable value, but it does not replace familiar and well-tried methods of diagnosis.
