To quantify the interdependence of capillary leukocyte plugging and microvascular hemodynamics, experimental measurements were made of the time required for lymphocytes and granulocytes to enter a micropipette. Using standard micropipette deformation techniques, entrance times were found to be a function of both cell diameter and pipette diameter, with no significant dependence on aspiration pressure over the differential pressure range of 200–400 Pa. Experimental results were combined with a… CONTINUE READING
