Abstract:

This report describes Geosciences research on thermal and electrical conductivities of biological fluids and tissues for the Medicine and Dentistry Branch of the Office of Naval Research. Changes in the electrical conductivity of hemolyzed blood have been related to erythrocyte damage. The thermal conductivities of aqueous and vitreous humor were determined. The correlations between thermal conductivity and physical properties of biological tissues and fluids were studied. Preliminary investigations of the effect of freezing beef liver in liquid nitrogen on thermal conductivity have been conducted. The techniques of freezing blood in liquid nitrogen have been examined also. Author
