In preterm infants, plasma and red blood cells display several specific properties (eg, RBC size, plasma composition) that could influence blood flow behavior. Hemorheologic properties of blood from 20 preterm infants (24 to 36 weeks of gestation), ten full-term neonates, and ten adults were studied by means of a cone-plate viscometer adapted with a Couette-type chamber allowing viscometry at a wide range of shear rates (1.15 to 230/s). Blood viscosity (at given hematocrit of 60%), plasma… CONTINUE READING
