"A Day in the Life of the Fluid Bolus": An Introduction to Fluid Mechanics of the Oropharyngeal Phase of Swallowing with Particular Focus on Dysphagia.

Appl Rheol 2016 Dec 7;26(6). Epub 2019 Jun 7.

Toronto Rehabilitation Institute - University Health Network, 550 University Avenue, Toronto, ON, M5G 2A2, Canada.

By following the path of a liquid bolus, from the oral preparatory phase to the esophagus, we show that a few fundamental concepts of fluid mechanics can be used to better understand and assess the importance of bolus viscosity during human swallowing, especially when considering dysfunctional swallowing (dysphagia) and how it can be mitigated. In particular, we highlight the important distinction between different flow regimes (i.e. Read More

The Rheology of Blood Flow in a Branched Arterial System.

Appl Rheol 2005 ;15(6):398-405

Department of Physics and Astronomy, Howard University, Washington, DC 20059, USA.

Blood flow rheology is a complex phenomenon. Presently there is no universally agreed upon model to represent the viscous property of blood. However, under the general classification of non-Newtonian models that simulate blood behavior to different degrees of accuracy, there are many variants. Read More
