Hemodynamics

“Hemodynamics” is defined as “the physical aspect of the cardiovascular system” or “cardiovascular biophysics” by McDonald in 1968. In recent decades, hemodynamics has become a multidisciplinary study, which includes blood rheology, cell mechanics and physiology, on the suspension of blood.

Pathological Condition

The observation of motion and interaction of multiple red blood cells, forming aggregates and developing a cell-free layer, is an important part of understanding the hemodynamic responses to either physiological or pathological conditions. Particularly, the peripheral region of circulatory system, which consists of arterioles, venules and capillaries, can be characterized by its microsize of diameter and microfluidic environment.

Microvasculature

The microvasculature provides large area that allows exchanging materials and vital substances with tissue. Accordingly, even small change in blood properties or flow condition becomes important considerations that are directly related to functional responses of the microcirculatory system.
