Blood Viscosity

Font Size: (-)(+)
"In any complex fluid - whether it's blood, ketchup, or paint - the thinner it is, the less work it takes to pump it. Therefore, the thinner your blood, the easier it is for your heart to pump it around your body, the less the arteries will have to stretch, and the less injury the arteries will sustain."

Kenneth R. Kensey, M.D.,The Blood Thinner Cure

The Key to Longevity

One of the new technologies that we are excited about here at Gordon Research Institute is blood viscosity testing. Whole blood viscosity has a higher correlation with cardiovascular disease than any of the other known risk factors. In fact, it is the common element in cardiovascular disease.

"The interaction between the rate of blood flow within the human body and the corresponding mechanisms of the arteries is becoming better understood," noted Nicholas Chronos, M.D., American Cardiovascular Research Institute. "To best use this knowledge, we need a more accurate methodology for obtaining a patient's blood viscosity profile. Rheologics' technology will give healthcare providers and researchers more clinically practical data for improving the treatment of vascular disease."
