Shear rate viscosity curves for normal blood, RBCs suspended in protein-free buffer (i.e., in a medium that does not induce RBC aggregation), and chemically rigidified RBCs suspended in plasma (modified from reference 2). The differences in viscosity at the lower and upper ends of the shear rate range demonstrate the effects of RBC aggregation and deformability, respectively.
