Critically ill patients treated in intensive care units often have impaired circulation, increased peripheral vascular resistance and diminished microcirculation. In such conditions hemorheological properties (viscosity, red blood cell deformation and aggregation) may have increased significance. We study the prognostic value of the monitoring of invasively or non-invasively measured hemodynamic and hemorheological parameters in various patients, and investigate what additional prognostic information they may add to standard intensive care prognostic scores (e.g. APACHE, SAPS).
