Excerpt from Virginia Medical Semi-Monthly (Richmond), Vol. 19: April 1914-March, 1915, Inclusive; Thoroughly Indexed Certain writers on this subject give as the diastolic point the disappearance of all sound (end of the muffled sound phase) and this is so stated in the directions which accompany an extensively advertised instrument for the detec tion of the sounds. This statement is undoubt edly an error. So far as I am aware it rests upon no experimental proof whatever and any one can satisfy himself by the means above de scribed that the diastolic point is in fact the end of the second and not of the third, or muffled, sound phase. These two points are separated usually by from five to ten millimeters of mer cury pressure. It would be very unfortunate, now that we possess an accurate clinical method of determining diastolic pressure to mislead the clinician into using it inaccurately.
