EFFECT OF HETEROGENEITY OF CAPILLARY FLOW ON THE CAPILLARY HEMATOCRIT.

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

There is experimental evidence suggesting that both capillary hematocrit and velocity distributions are heterogeneous. A wide population of capillary hematocrits with substantial fraction in the range 0-5% has been reported, and in vivo and in vitro experiments also reported in the literature give evidence that the capillary flow and hematocrit are correlated, namely that the hematocrit is higher in the capillaries with faster flow. A purpose of the present study is to develop a mathematical model consistent with aforementioned experimental data.
