Deformability of red blood cells: A determinant of blood viscosity
It was found that RBC deformability played an important role in reducing viscosity at low shear rates as well as highShear rates, which can be used in early diagnosis of the cardiovascular diseases.
Blood rheology and hemodynamics.
Blood rheology has been reported to be altered in various physiopathological processes: Alterations of hematocrit significantly contribute to hemorheological variations in diseases and in certain extreme physiological conditions, and RBC deformability is sensitive to local and general homeostasis.
Blood Rheology: Key Parameters, Impact on Blood Flow, Role in Sickle Cell Disease and Effects of Exercise
While acute, intense exercise may increase blood viscosity in healthy individuals, recent works conducted in sickle cell patients have shown that light cycling exercise did not cause dramatic changes in blood rheology, which could be beneficial for adequate blood flow and tissue perfusion.
Role of erythrocyte deformability during capillary wetting
Deformability of erythrocyte was found to fundamentally alter the wetting dynamics of red blood cell (RBC) suspensions during their invasion into capillaries, and the effect of RBC deformability on penetration was attributed to the enhanced shear‐induced migration of normal deformable RBCs toward the capillary centreline.
Influence of Deformability of Human Red Cells upon Blood Viscosity
The physiological deformability is of critical importance to blood flow at high rates of shear through a fluid transition of the erythrocyte caused by a rotation of the membrane with and around the cell contents, the prime cause of the progressive reduction in viscosity with increasing shear.
Rheology of human blood plasma: viscoelastic versus Newtonian behavior.
This work finds a viscoelastic behavior of blood plasma in the pure extensional flow of a capillary breakup rheometer, and shows that the vis coelastic properties of plasma should not be ignored in future studies on blood flow.
Droplet impact of Newtonian fluids and blood on simple fabrics: Effect of fabric pore size and underlying substrate
When a droplet impacts a fabric mesh at a sufficiently high impact velocity, it not only spreads over the fabric but also penetrate its pores. To determine the influence of this liquid penetration of
