The report describes research on thermal and electrical conductivities of biological fluids and tissues. Experimental electrical conductivities of human gastric juices, urine and bovine aqueous and vitrious humours were determined. A special cell for the determination of electrical conductivities for tissues was designed, constructed, and tested. Experimental measurements of the electrical conductivity of cow blood was determined as a function of hemolysis. A modified thermal conductivity apparatus was used to measure the conductivities of beef lung, liver, kidney, brain and chicken skin. Thermal conductivity correlation expressions for biological fluids and tissues are evaluated.
