About this Item

Poiseuille, Jean Léonard Marie (1799-1869). Recherches sur la force du coeur aortique. Thèse . . . 4to. 45pp. Engraved plate. Paris: Didot le jeune, 1828. 257 x 206 mm. Modern quarter calf, marbled boards. Tiny paper flaws in 2 leaves, a few small spots, but fine. First Edition. "Poiseuille was the first after Stephen Hales to make any important addition to the knowledge of the physiology of circulation. In his graduation thesis, above, he described a 'hemodynamometer' invented by himself and which he used to repeat some of Hales's blood-pressure experiments. With his hemomanometer, a mercury manometer, which was a great improvement on the long tube used by Hales, Poiseuille showed that the blood-pressure rises and falls on expiration and inspiration, and measured the degree of arterial dilatation produced by each heart beat" ( 767). The above work was Poiseuille's doctoral thesis; he would go on to make further important contributions to the study of circulatory hydrodynamics, including "Poiseuille's law" regarding the resistance to blood flow in a single vessel.
