Abstract:

The accuracy of the microgasometric method for the determination of the carbon dioxide content of blood devised by Scholander and Roughton was tested. The findings of Scholander and Roughton were confirmed fully. In addition, the carbon dioxide contents of samples of blood drawn simultaneously from the brachial artery and from the heated ear lobe were shown to be equivalent. Author
