  Our goal was to determine and predict the effects of temperature, shear rate, hematocrit, and different volume expanders on blood viscosity in conditions mimicking deep hypothermia for cardiac operations. Blood was obtained from six healthy adults. Dilutions were prepared to hematocrits of 35%,...

  This study evaluates the nature and reversibility of the increase in whole blood viscosity known to be induced by hypothermia. Anticoagulated samples were obtained from normal volunteers and were assayed for cellular deformability by 4.7 microns membrane filtration of whole blood (n = 12) and...
