Abstract : A standard method was used for determining plasma volume with radioiodinated human serum albumin (RISA) labeled with 125I. A typical plasma volume value found with this method is 37 ml./kg., within the normal range of 27.6 to 52.0 plus or minus 6.1 ml./kg. By use of indirect measurements, the total blood volume and red cell volume can also be determined. Values for these were: total blood volume, 67 ml./kg.; and red cell volume, 30 ml./kg. (Author)
