THE WORD NORMAL is generally used with reference to values or properties characteristic of healthy persons, for example the blood concentration of a particular constituent in health. The normal range is then the range of values found in healthy people. These definitions, straightforward as they may appear at first sight, involve certain practical difficulties. Some of these difficulties, and the methods suggested for overcoming them, will be briefly discussed in this article.
