Although the effects of red blood cell (RBC) aggregation on low-shear rate blood viscosity are well known, the effects on in vivo flow resistance are still not fully resolved. The present study was designed to explore the in vivo effects of RBC aggregation on flow resistance using a novel technique to enhance aggregation: cells are covalently coated with a(More)
The effects of mechanical stress on red blood cell (RBC) deformability were evaluated by subjecting cells to a uniform fluid shear stress of 120 Pa for 15-120 seconds at 37 degrees C. This level of stress induced significant impairment of RBC deformability as assessed by ektacytometry, with the degree of impairment independent of extracellular calcium(More)
