Abstract : A standard method is given for determining chromium-51 red cell survival curves, red cell mass, total blood volume, and plasma volume. Typical values found are: red cell survival T-1/2 of 22 days; red cell mass, 22 ml./kg.; total blood volume, 50 ml./kg.; and plasma volume, 28 ml./kg. A method is also described for separating superimposed 51Cr red cell survival curves. (Author)
