The blood transport dysfunction in case of various diseases is important for development of critical conditions. Blood is a complex mixture of interacting cells, proteins, electrolytes in the water environment with a variable peculiar structure changing in motion. The blood flow velocity in the body depends on the emptying capacity of heart, bloodstream resistance, interaction between blood components - hemorheology. The method of the blood viscosity measurement is the most common in haemorheologic researches. Except the viscosity index the current blood properties are determined by rheological properties of its certain components - plasma and cell blood elements.
