Abstract : Methods have been devised for simultaneous measurement of total forearm blood flow and clearance of I-131 from the skin after intradermal injection or inotophoresis of the isotope. These methods have been used to study the effects of reactive hyperemia, general body heating and the action of topically applied rubifacient substances on total forearm flood flow and upon clearance of I-131 from the skin. The increased blood flow of reactive hyperemia appears to be reasonably reflected during the early period of isotope clearance, but factors other than blood flow appear to dominate the clearance of isotope from skin 25 to 40 minutes after it is introduced. A method for graphical analysis of semilog plots of complex regressions with more than one exponent has been devised. (Author)
