Abstract : Contents: Design, Performance Analysis and Calibration Problems of a Light-weight Capacitance Gauge for Forearm Volume Plethysmography; A Constant-current, Voltage-regulated Control, Calibration and Measuring Circuit for Waggoner's High-impedance Elastic Force Gauge; Procedures and Equipment for Measurement of Trans-cutaneous Flux of Helium and Rates of Sweating at Varying Levels of Skin Blood Flow; Clearance of I-131 and Na-22 from Skin in the Presence of Plasma Albumin; The Role of Lymphatics in the clearance of I-131 from Skin Assessed from Clearance Rates of Radio-iodinated Human Serum Albumin; Helium Flux through the Skin of Subjects at 25 plus or minus 2C, with and without Locally-induced Sweating by means of Mecholyl and Pilocarpine Nitrate Iontophoresis; The Effects of General Body Warming, Cooling Posture and Exercise upon Helium Flux through Forearm Skin and upon Total Forearm Blood Flow.
