Abstract : The availability of a large number of variables derived from clinical and laboratory evaluations of 200 middle aged males made it possible to relate them statistically to the BCG waves. Numerous significant correlations were found and these are discussed. It appears that, until the factors and their interrelationships are more precisely evaluated, the strictly quantitative use of BCG standards derived from groups to determine such things as stroke volume, among others, must be regarded with caution. The results seem to indicate that serial BCG's will be necessary for complete evaluation of an individual's cardiovascular status. (Author)
