QUOTE OF THE MONTH, ANNO 1928

“It was fatal for the development of our understanding of circulation that blood flow is relatively difficult to measure while blood pressure so easy to measure:
This is the reason why the sphygmomanometer has gained such a fascinating influence, although most organs do not need blood pressure, but flow.”

– Adolf Jarisch, Kreislauffragen, Deutsche Medizinische Wochenschrift, 1928, 29: 1211-1213
