Microvascular preparations of the hamster cheek pouch and cremaster muscle were used to establish the relationship among three measures of red cell distribution: 1) the systemic hematocrit defined as the volume percentage of red cells sampled from a toe clip; 2) the tube hematocrit defined as the instantaneous volume fraction of red cells in a microvessel segment of measured length and diameter; and 3) the discharge hematocrit defined as the volume percentage of red cells that flowed into… CONTINUE READING
