Conference paper


The term heart volume quotient (Herzvolumen-Leistungsquotient) was described by Roskamm and Reindell (5, 6, 7). They defined it as the quotient of heart volume and maximal oxygen pulse. The volume is determined form two x-ray readings according to the Rohrer and Kahlstorf method as modified by Musshof and Reindell (6). The highest value obtained in maximum ergostasis is taken as the maximum oxygen pulse.
