Several potentially important parameters influencing the disproportionate distribution of red cell flux and blood flow at a bifurcation are examined. These include parent vessel hematocrit, vessel diameter, suspending medium, cell distensibility, parent vessel blood flow rate, and local geometry. Measurements were performed on 20 to 100 micrometers bifurcations, fabricated such that all vessels of a given bifurcations have the same diameter. Suspensions of human red cells, hardened red cells… CONTINUE READING
