This volume documents the proceedings of a symposium held at the Oak Ridge Institute of Nuclear Studies, an operating unit of Oak Ridge Associated Universities, on Oct 24 to 27, 1966.
This book should be read by all scientists interested in measurement of fluid and solute compartments. Essayists and participants are expert in this area of rapidly changing technology. The discussions held for each group of three papers are published and underscore areas of compatible and divergent opinion.
The volume is a valuable reference work since the index provides easy access to specific subjects, and the bibliographies are selective. The investigator contemplating novel studies in compartment physiology should explore the contents of the symposium as a preparatory step.
