First Edition. Garrison-Morton 779. The invention of the Stromuhr, a double vessel on a swivel for measuring blood volume flow. "An accurate method of measuring blood flow was not available until 1868, when Dogiel, working in Ludwig's laboratory, described the 'Stromuhr'" (Fishman & Richards, Circulation of the Blood: Men and Ideas, p. 679).
Dogiel was a student of Carl Ludwig, professor of physiology at the University of Leipzig; "so far as the advancement of knowledge of the circulation is concerned, and particularly the action of the heart, Carl Ludwig and his school probably contributed a larger share than any other group" (ibid., p. 87)..
