  1. 1. Blood Flow variations in Large Arteries due to non-Newtonian rheology

    Author : Stevin van Wyk; Laszlo Fuchs; Staffan Lundström; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Blood; Rheology; Viscosity; non-Newtonian; CFD; Bifurcations; Unsteadiness; Wall Shear Stress; Atherosclerosis;

    Abstract : The blood is a complex fluid that contains, in addition to water, cells, macro-molecules and a large number of smaller molecules. The physical properties of the blood are therefore the result of non-linear interactions of its constituents, which are influenced by the local flow field conditions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Blood rheology alterations in cardiovascular disease

    Author : Carl Gunnar Gustavsson; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kardiovaskulära systemet; Cardiovascular system; erythr; microcirculation; haematocrit; haemoglobin; plasma viscosity; haemorheology; blood viscosity; recurrence; percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty; coronary disease; angina pectoris; pulmonary hypertension; Syndrome X; dilated cardiomyopathy;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the haemorheological aspects of cardiovascular diseases. The resistance of blood to flow is determined by the rheological properties of blood as well as by organic stenoses and regulatory tonus changes in the vessels. READ MORE

  4. 4. Effects of Hemoglobin Normalization with Epoetin in Chronic Kidney Disease

    Author : Hans Furuland; Björn Wikström; Torbjörn Linde; Peter Barany; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Internal medicine; Anemia; blood viscosity; cardiac output; chronic kidney disease; renal dialysis; dialysis adequacy; erythopoietin; heart rate variability; hemoglobin; hemorheology; hypertension; kidney transplantation; Kt V; left ventricular hypertrophy; Quality of Life; Invärtesmedicin; Internal medicine; Invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Anemia is common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CDK), contributes to reduced Quality of Life (QoL) and is associated with cardiovascular disease, morbidity and mortality. Epoetin raises hemoglobin (Hb) and increases QoL and physical exercise capacity. READ MORE
