Dear 1st year medical students, I wish you enjoyed “Heart Physiology” course as I really did. On Sunday 19/12/2010, we are going to have  a quick revision. If you have any queries or questions, kindly put it in the comment to be discussed next Sunday.

Wish you all the best

Adolf Eugen Fick (1829 –1901) was a German physiologist. He earned his doctorate in medicine at Marburg in 1851. In 1855 he introduced Fick’s Law of diffusion, which governs the diffusion of a gas across a fluid membrane. In 1870 he was the first to devise a technique for measuring cardiac output, called the Fick principle.
