Abstract : A program for the analog computer solution of the Starr BCG formula is presented. The most important contribution of this method is the use of relays to select any wave or set of waves of the BCG. It therefore has applications in other analyses of the BCG. Comparisons with dyedilution cardiac outputs in dogs under various circulatory conditions shows faithful reproduction of changes in stroke volume. The advantages and disadvantages of the method are discussed. (Author)
