Mixing of Cr51-Labeled Red Cells in Patients with Congestive Heart Failure and Controls
Composite time-concentration curves of labeled erythrocytes in venous blood constructed by pooling data from 11 patients without circulatory failure showed a curve of mixing lasting 25 min. Data from 9 patients in congestive heart failure showed variable mixing lasting at least as long as in the control patients.
