Abstract

The commoner methods of blood circulation time measurement have been reviewed, and the theophylline-ethylenediamine test, which has not been used previously in this country, was selected for clinical trial, since it appeared suitable for routine use in general practice and in a busy hospital outpatient department. Extensive clinical trials - involving 433 tests in 339 cases - are described, and the results indicate that the theophyiline-ethylenediamine method is safe, simple and reliable, is suitable for use in the control of the treatment of thyrotoxicosis, and is a valuable aid to the diagnosis of cardiac failure.
