Abstract

It is well known that blood viscosity is one of the most important determinants of cerebral blood flow (CBF) in normal and diseased states. It is also well recognized that blood viscosity is mainly influenced by hematocrit (Hct), red blood cell (RBC) deformability, RBC aggregation, plasma proteins, and so on.
