The significance of a hitherto undescribed wave in the jugular pulse.

Lancet, 2, 1380-82, 1907.

The physiological wave sometimes found in mid-diastole, when the pulse is slow, was first described by Gibson. He termed it the b-wave.
Gibson worked with William Osler at the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford, and cared for the Regius Professor during his last illness. Gibson also performed Osler's autopsy.
