Hemoglobin solutions prepared from hemolyzed human erythrocyte packs have Newtonian flow properties. Diluted solutions are also Newtonian. All solutions have a viscosity lower than the apparent viscosity of erythrocyte suspensions of equal oxygen-carrying capacity. The presence of cell debris in hemoglobin solutions causes non-Newtonian (pseudoplastic or rheopectic) flow behavior.
