The importance of the sigma phenomenon in the study of the flow of blood

  • G. W. Scott Blair
Originals

Summary

During the past three decades, work on blood and on nonbiological systems concerning anomalies in theR4 law of capillary flow has been proceeding along parallel and usually unconnected lines.

The present paper attempts to draw together these diverse lines of work and stresses the importance to haemo-pathology of a fuller understanding of the sigmaphenomenon in blood.

Zusammenfassung

Während der letzten 3 Jahrzehnte wurden Untersuchungen an Blut und an nichtbiologischen Systemen, die die Abweichung vomR4-Gesetz beim kapillaren Fließen betreffen, auf parallelen und im allgemeinen getrennten Wegen vorangetrieben.

Die vorgelegte Arbeit versucht, diese verschiedenen Forschungsrichtungen zusammenzubringen und ein volleres Verständnis des Sigma-Phänomens beim Blut in seiner Bedeutung für die Hämopathologie zu schaffen.
