Electrical Properties of Blood Help Diagnose Disease

| 1 Comment

For decades, the electrical properties of human blood have been of interest in a wide range of biomedical applications, such as in radiofrequency hyperthermia, body composition, electrocardiography, and the diagnosis and treatment of various physiological conditions.

In a recent article published in Biomicrofluidics, researchers at King Abdulaziz University in Saudi Arabia have published a study of the electrical and mechanical (viscosity) properties of blood and the effects of electrical conduction on its microstructure. The authors use many parameters in their research and conclusions, including the relaxation time of micro-cells, molecules, bacteria, protein, hormones, glucose, chemicals, vitamins, and antibodies, which all greatly influence the chemical and physical character of blood.
