Lecture Description

A description of viscosity and Poiseuille's Law, which relates the pressure gradient along an enclosed conduit to the viscosity, length of conduit, radius of conduit, and fluid low. Several examples of its application in medicine are discussed, including rapid infusion of fluids, asthma attacks, hyperviscosity syndrome, and leukostasis.
