Prediction of blood volume and adiposity in man from body weight and cube of height

Prediction of blood volume and adiposity in man from body weight and cube of height

Metabolism: Clinical and Experimental 5(3): 328-345

Blood volume (BV) and adiposity in 55 men and 26 women (Summer, 1954, Taipei) were computed from measurements of plasma volume and hematocrit and from hydrostatic measurements of body density. The blood associated with fatty tissue in men is 22.3 ml/kg and in women is 11.7 ml/kg. In both sexes the essential body mass (EBM) (body weight less adiposity) contains 92.8 ml/kg EBM. To compare the BV with that in other peoples a multiple correlation was made of BV, cube of height (H3) and body weight (TBM). This gave a second set of formulae, one for each sex, for the BV in over 700 subjects in Stockholm, Nanking, etc., including extremes of male body-types in New York. When the 2 sets of formulae are equated, it is possible to solve for the total mass of adiposity in terms of H3 and TBM. The results compare favorably with hydrostatic determinations in other laboratories, thus checking the accuracy of the Taipei measurements. The formulae for normal values are particularly suited to studies of BV and A in environmental physiology and for use in diagnostic procedures in patients of either sex and of various races and ages, expecially where the body is wasted or is obese.
