Aspects of Measuring Techniques in Haemorheology within the Low Shear Range

  • C. D. Meier


The great variety of rheological measurements carried out in the course of the last years with whole blood by rotational rheo meters show the difficulties sometimes existing in establishing arelationship between each measurement. It is common knowledge that blood viscosity is determined by:
  1. 1)


  2. 2)

    Erythrocytes aggregation

  3. 3)

    Erythrocytes deformability.
