How to use blood volume in a sentence
We know today that blood volume is about one-fifteenth to one-seventeenth the body weight of an adult.
If blood loss is great (more than 10 percent of the total blood volume) there occurs a sudden, systemic fall in blood pressure.
A greater blood volume is therefore necessary in order that the organs may receive their quota of blood.Arteriosclerosis and Hypertension:|Louis Marshall Warfield
