Van Slyke's test I
Test for amide nitrogen. Manometric method for measuring blood gases. Nitrous acid acting on amide nitrogen sets free nitrogen gas, which is collected and its volume determined. Van Slyke's techniques for measuring blood gases led to better understanding of respiratory physiology.
