Abstract:

A standard method is given for determining chromium-51 red cell survival curves, red cell mass, total blood volume, and plasma volume. Typical values found are red cell survival T-12 of 22 days red cell mass, 22 ml.kg. total blood volume, 50 ml.kg. and plasma volume, 28 ml.kg. A method is also described for separating superimposed 51Cr red cell survival curves. Author
