What determines blood rheological properties?

Hemorheological parameters determine blood rheological properties.

What determines blood rheological status?

1. Hematocrit.

2. Blood viscosity.

3. Еrythrocyte agregability.

4. Erythrocyte deformability.

What is the danger of causing rheological disorders?

Answer

Increased erythrocyte aggregation, decreased erythrocyte deformation, changed hematocrit and plasma viscosity leads to a blockage of capillaries, a slowed down blood flow and develops a capillary stasis. The result is a lack of oxygen. During erythrocyte aggregation erythrocytes may get damaged and an erythrocyte coagulation factor may be developed, which could cause a rheological catastrophe.
