From data collected in different earlier studies, the authors confirm their hypothesis that, in unmedicated healthy humans, heart rate increases linearly in response to acute isovolemic hemodilution. The authors also determine that the slope of the relationship between heart rate and hemoglobin is slightly greater for females than it is for males.
