Abstract

A microvascular network model is proposed with random arrangement and random geometry of vessels. Experimental and calculated haematocrit distribution in the network are compared and are found to be in agreement. Therefore the proposed model is consistent with experimental observations of low microvascular haematocrit, and can quantitatively predict the discharge haematocrit distribution throughout the network.
