High Shear Thrombosis: Two Phase Accumulation

High Shear Thrombosis: Two Phase Accumulation

Blood is a heterogeneous fluid, being comprised of platelets, red blood cells, white blood cells and plasma. This complex fluid is responsible for carrying oxygen to, as well as waste from, tissues. Within the body, blood experiences varied flow conditions and forces, including shear rate. Shear rate is the change in velocity/position. The extremes, of which, are low and high shear rate.
