Hemorheological parameters of Blood of patients suffering from pulmonary Tuberculosis

N. Manohar Reddy, D.Kothandan, S. Chandra Lingam and Adeel Ahmad

The paper presents the data on hemorhelogical parameters of blood of patients suffering from pulmonary tuberculosis. These parameters are the crucial parameters, which adversely affect many vital functions of human body. A simple open capillary tube method is employed for the determination of characteristic velocity, volume flow rate, viscosity and surface tension. The coefficient of viscosity is considerably high in TB blood when compared to normal blood values and there is no significant change in surface tension when compared with that of normal. It is observed that volume flow rate and characteristic velocity decrease considerably. This method can be the complementary method for the diagnosis, monitoring and administration of drug of TB patients.
