Comments P.143 2nd paragraph: "Nevertheless, values found by Cook (1951) and Ulgen and Sezdi (primary source) for human blood at 35˚C (1.55 S/m) and 37˚C (1.54 S/m), respectively, agree with [investigators'] results." Conductance is the inverse of resistance and the unit S (siemens) is the same as inverse ohms.
