BACKGROUND Blood viscosity is correlated with cerebral blood flow and cardiac output, and increased viscosity may increase the risk of thrombosis or thromboembolic events. The relationship between hematocrit and viscosity is well-known, however, the relationships between white blood cell (WBC) or platelet count and viscosity were not fully studied. The aim of the present study was to determine the influences of platelet count and WBC count on blood viscosity. METHODS One-hundred and 13… CONTINUE READING
