Editors: Gregory D. Sloop (Former Associate Professor of Pathology, Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans and Former Chairman of Pathology and Laboratory Medical Director, Benefis Hospitals, Great Falls, Montana, USA)
Book Description:
The impact of blood viscosity on health and disease has been neglected, even though viscosity is a fundamental property of any fluid. It is inversely proportional to flow, so increased blood viscosity predisposes to thrombosis. Blood viscosity is directly related to systemic vascular resistance, and so blood viscosity affects blood pressure. Blood viscosity is inversely proportional to perfusion, and increased viscosity adversely affects the performance of all organs. By viewing them through the perspective of viscosity, this book provides fresh insight into atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, sepsis, hemolytic anemias, anemia of chronic disease, and aging.

Book Reviews

“Dr. Gregory Sloop along with other contributors have introduced a very valuable book centering on the importance of blood viscosity and the role that hemorheology plays in atherosclerosis. Specifically, chapters within the book provide insights into the pathophysiology and the role that blood viscosity interplays in this disease. With this added awareness, attention and knowledge of hemorheology, clinicians and other medical and scientific personnel, are provided a better understanding of the factors involved in this cardiovascular disease state. In addition this well written book provides a thought-provoking means to potentially develop novel therapeutic regimens for future treatments, as well as a current assessment of factors in a person’s life style, which can contribute to this disease.” - J.A. St. Cyr, MD, PhD, Retired, Cardiovascular Surgeon, Minneapolis, MN, USA
