    The article focuses on blood viscosity and natural treatments that can safely change it to preserve health and potentially save lives. The movement of blood and how viscosity increases is explained. Factors affecting blood viscosity include the hematocrit, red blood cell (RBC) deformability,...

Hematocrit could refer to an instrument used for separating solids from plasma in the blood or it could refer to the volume erythrocytes packed by centrifugation in a particular volume of blood. It is clinically expressed as the percentage of...

    Microscale blood flow is characterised by heterogeneous distributions of hematocrit, viscosity and velocity. In microvascular bifurcations, cells are unevenly distributed between the branches, and this effect can be amplified in subsequent branches depending on a number of parameters. We propose...

    It is suggested that blood viscosity remains constant through the action of an autoregulatory mechanism. The sensors and control loops correspond to two types of viscoreceptors, one sensing blood viscosity in large vessels, and another red cell rigidity in small vessels. The presence of rigid...

    The article presents information related to microcytic anemia. It is mentioned that a reduction in the total circulating number of red cells including haemoglobin concentration (Hb), the haematocrit (Hct) or the red blood cell count (RBC) is represented by anemia. It is stated that assessment of...
