This text represents the current understanding of the fluid dynamic aspects of physiological fluids. Emphasis is placed on the functional characteristics of various organs, and macro- and micro-mechanisms of various fluids. This is presented in the form of recent clinical, experimental and theoretical developments. The outcome of these is of special significance in the design and development of newer cardiovascular technology, and the clinical assessment of disorders and haemorrheology. This book should be of importance to basic scientists, biomedical researchers and clinicians, to gain insight into this field.
