desigh effect

Jennifer A Long, Akif Undar, Keefe B Manning, Steven Deutsch
Red blood cell hematocrit, aggregation and deformability, and plasma protein concentration influence the viscosity and elasticity of whole blood. These parameters affect the flow properties, especially at low shear rates (< 50 s(-1)). In particular, we have previously shown that the viscoelasticity of fluid affects the inlet filling characteristics and regions of flow separation in small pulsatile blood pumps. Although the viscosity of pediatric blood has been thoroughly studied, its elasticity has not been previously measured...
