First Edition, Offprint Issue. Pflüger, a pupil of Müller and du Bois-Reymond, made important contributions to our knowledge of the physiology of respiration. “The most effective work of Pflüger and his pupils is the proof that the essential seat of respiration is not in the blood, but in the tissues. This was accomplished in his important memoirs on the gasometry of the blood (1866), on the cause of dyspnea, apnea, and the mechanism of respiration (1868), on the origin and rational of the oxidative processes in the animal organism (1872), and on the heat production and oxidation of living matter (1878)” (Garrison, History of Medicine, p. 607).
