Hemolytic effects of energy dissipation in flowing blood


Typical extracorporeal circulation systems subject blood to abnormal and severe physical conditions. The local rate of mechanical hemolysis under such conditions is postulated to be a function of the local rate of mechanical energy dissipation. This hypothesis was tested by examining the rates of hemolysis in four types of flow. The average rate of… (More)
