The change in the electrical conductivity of blood observed in Couette and Poiseuille flow is discussed. Theoretical calculations considering the motion of red cells in Couette flow are presented. The red cells are considered as insulating ellipsoids in a conducting medium (plasma). The cell orientation distribution is used to calculate the change in conductivity with flow.
