The behaviour of red cells in narrow tubes in vitro as a model of the microcirculation.

Abstract

To investigate the behaviour of red cells in the microcirculation, we established a new capillary method using narrow fluorinated ethylenepropylene copolymer tubes with internal diameters of 12.5 and 25.0 microns. Red cell flow in the tubes under a given range of pressure was analysed through a video system connected to a microscope. The experimental… (More)
