On the Relation between Blood Viscosity and Dynamic Viscoelasticity in the Clotting Process or the Blood
The cause of abnormalities in the flow property of the blood in the microcirculation is thought to be mainly due to changes in blood viscosity. It is known that thrombosis is often encountered in diseases accompanied by increased blood viscosity, such as in diabetes and malignant tumor. This being the case, a study of the dynamic viscoelasticity in the process of blood coagulation was made in diseases which accompany increased blood viscosity. As a preliminary report, measurement of dynamic viscoelasticity in the coagulation process of blood and plasma was made in 17 subjects.
