Figures

Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

(a) RBC cluster parameters; (b) microcapillary hematocrit fluctuations (the arrows show the same cell while traveling across the field of view).

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

(a) Clusters length vs. number of RBC per cluster; (b) clusters length vs. ΔP for different numbers of RBCs.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

(a) Distance between consecutive cells in clusters vs. number of RBC per cluster; (b) RBC distance in a cluster vs. ΔP (the images in the inset show clusters of 2, 4, and 6 RBCs at ΔP = 10 mmHg).

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Plot of RBC deformation index as a function of ΔP in five cell clusters. Typical images are shown in the inset.

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

Distribution of NRBC (the number of RBCs in a cluster) at different positions along the capillary and at the following values of ΔP: (a) ΔP = 15 mmHg; (b) ΔP = 34 mmHg; (c) ΔP = 80 mmHg.

Image of FIG. 6.
