  Blood pressure and components of blood viscosity were measured in 49 normal subjects and in 49 untreated patients with essential hypertension. Blood viscosity values measured at six different shear rates were significantly correlated with blood pressure (r = 0.432 to 0.505, p less than 0.001)....

  In patients with borderline hypertension, total peripheral resistance (TPR) is either elevated or abnormally related to cardiac output. Since blood viscosity is one determinant of TPR, we compared various components of blood viscosity in 25 patients with borderline hypertension and 25 normal...

  While the blood vessels are exposed to high pressures in hypertension, the main complications of hypertension (stroke and myocardial infarction) are paradoxically thrombotic rather than haemorrhagic. To investigate abnormalities of haemorheology (plasma viscosity, fibrinogen), endothelial...

  The blood viscosity parameters of one hundred and fifty cases of WHO grade I and II hypertension of Indian origin, on treatment with calcium antagonists, were measured and a six-monthly follow up was conducted for a period of three years. The whole blood viscosity (WBV), plasma viscosity (PV),...

  Increased blood viscosity reduces blood flow and elevates vascular resistance in the cardiovascular system. The aim of this study was to elucidate how blood viscosity could affect renal function and eventually contribute to renal damage in essential hypertensives (EHT). In 164 untreated EHT...

  The effects of cigarette smoking and hypertension on hemorheological variables (blood viscosity over a wide range of shear rates, plasma viscosity, microhematocrit, and plasma protein concentration) and on arterial stiffness (pulse wave velocity) were investigated in 33 normotensive men and 81...

  Blood viscosity is elevated in hypertensive subjects, but the association of viscosity with arterial blood pressure in the general population, and the influence of social, lifestyle and disease characteristics on this association, are not established. In the Edinburgh Artery Study, 1592 men and...

  OBJECTIVES: To examine the relationship of blood pressure with haematocrit, plasma viscosity, whole blood viscosity and plasma fibrinogen. DESIGN: A random population sample of 1264 men and women aged 25-64 years from the west of Scotland, UK. RESULTS: Strong correlations between age, body mass...
