Saliva-Serum Ratios of Deuterium Oxide after Administration of Heavy Water

TOTAL body water may be estimated by administering a known weight of deuterium oxide and, after equilibration has occurred, determining its concentration in water obtained from some body fluid. Faller et al.1 have shown that, within the limits of experimental error, the same values are obtained for total body water whether the deuterium oxide is… CONTINUE READING
