Oxygen Uptake into the Sheared Flowing Blood: Effects of Red Cell Membranes and Haematocrit
The intracellular convection within RBC e.g. due to their deformability properties and rotation of red cell membrane around the cell interior as proposed (Fischer and Schmid-Schönbein, 1977).
Secondary flow within flowing whole blood, occurring e.g. in vessel branches (Karino et al., 1979).
