Also see . . .  Adolf Eugen Fick (Wikipedia). "Adolf Eugen Fick (3 September 1829 – 21 August 1901) was a German-born physician and physiologist....In 1855, he introduced Fick's laws of diffusion, which govern the diffusion of a gas across a fluid membrane. In 1870, he was the first to measure cardiac output, using what is now called the Fick principle....Fick managed to double-publish his law of diffusion, as it applied equally to physiology and physics. His work led to the development of the direct Fick method for measuring cardiac output." (Submitted on October 3, 2018.)
