This article contains a brief qualitative description of artifacts entering into measurements of intravascular pressures with electronic transducer systems. The authors outline methods of evaluating some static and dynamic response characteristics in pressure-recording systems.

of great importance. The paper presents an effective method that was first used by Meek in 1958. Skin squares are taken from unburned areas and cut by rotating knifes into small pieces. These are stuck to a folded nylon sheet, which subsequently is stretched and placed on a far larger burn area. Two to 4 days later, the small skin grafts begin to grow in and the nylon sheet may be removed. Epithelization extends from the skin islands and finally covers the whole wound area. Excellent pictures demonstrate the described procedure and the course of heeling.-IV. Leuterer. EXCHANGE TRANSFUSION IN THE TREATMENT OF EXTENSIVE BURNS IN CHILDREN. M. Kummer, F. Kuffer, A.
