Transcapillary Loss, Equilibrium Time, Half-Return Time of Thiocyanate and Heavy Water in the Forearm
For this hemodynamic study, Freis's team "devised a method for determining the net bidirectional exchange of substances
permeable to the capillary walls of the human forearm," using T-1824 (a dye that binds to plasma protein), sodium thiocyanate,
and deuterium oxide (heavy water). They were then able to learn the rate at which water moves between body tissues and capillaries
in cell metabolism.
