Abstract

We study a simple model of the capillary network of living systems. The volume flow of the blood versus pressure drop has a negative impedance interval, because the viscosity of the blood decreases with increasing shear rate. We explain the channel formation and deviations of the blood flow in solid tumours by this phenomenon.
