Abstract

Hemorheology, the science of the flow properties of blood, is still a young field of medical research. Only in the last 20 years has it increasingly gained entry into medical science, which is by no means lacking in specialized terminology. While at first, only the terms “blood viscosity” and “plasma viscosity” were known, nowadays other rheologic factors of the flow properties of blood such as “erythrocyte aggregation” and “erythrocyte deformability” are used as well.
