Abstract

Acute experiments involving ligation of both carotid arteries revealed that blood pressure, recorded from the femoral vein of dogs, remained elevated for the duration of each experiment, or from six to fourteen hours. To determine if similar results could be obtained in chronic experiments the common carotid arteries of three dogs were ligated. The apparatus used for recording blood pressure consisted of a Baumanometer attached to a pediatrics cuff which was secured around the hind leg by means of a leather wristlet. Both oscillatory and auscultatory methods were used. As the latter method was found to give more consistent systolic readings it was used for these experiments. Diastolic pressure was difficult to obtain.
