Richard Lower was a British physician regarded as one of the finest doctors from the University of Oxford. Lower is known for his medical science as it relates to transfusions and the function of cardiopulmonary system; becoming the first Western scientist ever to perform a blood transfusion. He is credited with being the first to observe the difference in arterial and venous blood, as well as for his work on 'Tractatus de Corde' and 'Cerebri anatome'. De Catarrhis, Lower's book, is of historical significance because it was the first scholarly attempt by a British physician to take a classical doctrine (the theory that nasal secretions are an overspill from the brain) and to disprove it by scientific experiment.
