Blood Viscosity FactorsBlood Viscosity Factors brings together a series of essays on the impact of various abnormalities on blood viscosity factors. It contains several hundred references to already published work in the field. Beginning with the finding that red blood cells proliferate in shape and are not just one toroidally shaped horde, the work offers unique insights into the role of ageing and disease. The work of Dr. Simpson corrects the record and offers tantalizing possibilities for the future. One result of …

The Origin of Atherosclerosis: What Really Initiates the Inflammatory ProcessFrom the Authors: Puzzled about the origin of atherosclerosis, we applied biorheology, biophysics, fluid dynamics, and computer-assisted flow analysis to arrive at a logical explanation for why atherosclerosis begins at predictable sites in the arterial system.

About the Authors:
An internationally recognized cardiologist, inventor, researcher, lecturer and author, Kenneth R. Kensey, M.D., is focused on preventing and reversing atherosclerosis. Dr. Kensey has received more than 50 patents for …

Physical Properties of Human Blood: Viscosity Studies of Human Blood and PlasmaIn the present study 2ml of blood is sufficient for investigation. Here viscosity and surface tension are measured at stretch. This technique is helpful in quick diagnosis of disease and physical fitness of a patient. This is a potential tool in medical discipline for diagnosis, drug administration and monitoring of a patient suffering from any disease, in general, and thrombosis and cancer in particular.This Technique aided with computer program for data processing may help a physician for quic…

Clinical Aspects of Blood Viscosity and Cell DeformabilityAfter many years of relative neglect, the importance of study of factors governing blood flow has at last achieved recognition; in this volume are documented many of the techniques, and the basic scientific and clinical observations, which have helped to open up understanding of this highly important aspect of human physiology and pathology in recent years. The text is logically divided into five sections beginning with blood cell deformability, then moving on to theoretical consideration of blo…

Blood Viscosity and Shock: The Role of Hemodilution, Hemoconcentration and Defibrination (Anaesthesiologie und Intensivmedizin   Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine)The hemodynamic significance of the flow properties of blood was put into perspective only during the past decade. Advances in modern technologies today allow the quantitative analy sis of the fluidity of blood and its components under conditions approximating the flow in vivo, particularly those in the microcirculation. The hematocrit is the most important of the determinants of blood fluidity (reciprocal value of blood viscosity); acute increases in the hematocrit exert deleterious effects on …
