Abstract : A new multivariable measuring instrument is described which could make a substantial contribution to a practical tool in cardiovascular measurements. The Biomedical Electronics Division of Diginetics is approaching the stroke problem from a logical standpoint, that is: utilizing the eye as the physiological and anatomical window into the brain of which it is an extension. By monitoring or examining the blood vessels of the eye, especially the retina, one can gain information regarding the blood vessels and hemodynamic or circulatory parameters necessary in order to diagnose and treat insufficiency or obstruction of the cerebral blood supply.
