Pathological Physiology and General Pathology


Experiments on rats showed that burn trauma is accompanied by disturbances of the microcirculation, hemoconcentration, and increased viscosity of the blood, which are especially marked in vessels with low pressure. Changes in the mesenteric microcirculation coincided with changes in the dynamic viscosity and composition of the blood determined in vitro. These disturbances were more marked after extensive and deep burns, accompanied by severe shock ending in death than after moderately severe burns, the consequences of which were less serious.
