Abstract : The relationship of several whole blood constituents to the quantity of nitrogen in solution in the blood was studied by correlating the measured quantities of each with the amount of nitrogen present. The constituents and their mean values were as follows: whole blood lipids589.62 mg. %; plasma lipids-598.45 mg. %; total blood water-77.33 %; hematocrit-46.12 %. The mean value for nitrogen is solution was 0.01273 ml. per milliliter of whole blood (Bunsen solubility coefficient). With the exception of hematocrit versus nitrogen, all correlation coefficients were found to be negative. None of the correlations were found to be s gnificant. (Author)
