Laser radiation of different power had various effects on the properties of erythrocytes. An increase in the radiation power from 2.2 to 25 mW/cm2 was accompanied by a decrease in the erythrocyte sedimentation rate and an increase in erythrocyte filtration index. Radiation of 50 mW/cm2 induced abnormal erythrocyte aggregation. Increasing the time of irradiation at power intensity of 2.2 mW/cm2 did not potentiate its effect on the blood.
