RBC deformability provide an important and limitating factor in blood flow and microcirculatory perfusion. A relative great number of tests are available to estimate RBC deformability, e.g. filtration methods. We performed several tests with a filtration method (Nucleopore) whereby several basically different parameters have to be taken into consideration… CONTINUE READING
