Abstract : The object of the research was to determine what variation the viscosity of whole and other blood systems exhibits when subjected to pressures of from one to fifty atmospheres. For the accomplishment of this determination the author inventors designed and built a capillary viscometer for determination of viscosities of liquids under moderate pressures. The test system was calibrated with water. (Author)
