Erythrocyte deformability is one of the most important factors on determining blood viscosity. Many microcirculation damages are caused by alteration of viscosity. We propose a method for evaluate erythrocyte filtration using Nucleopore membranes, to study erythrocyte deformability. Normal ranges are calculated in young healthy subjects. Mean filtration time is determined on 5 filtrations for every subject. Filtration rate is expressed by sec/ml and correlated whit haematocrit. The method is not easily utilizable, but it can be useful in the knowledge of the role of the erythrocyte deformability in the altered microcirculation.
