Abstract

Bench-top medical simulator is used for rehearsing medical treatment procedure to treat abnormal blood flow in blood vessels. The blood vessels are 3D-printed, and flow is simulated using blood mimicking fluid. It is crucial that the fluid can replicate the tactile feedback of actual blood during simulation which contributed by blood viscosity. There are limited studies regarding the effect of mixing temperature during blood mimicking fluid preparation towards the viscosity of blood mimicking fluid. This experiment aims to investigate the effect of mixing temperature variation of 25℃, 37℃ and 88℃ towards blood mimicking fluid that made up of xanthan gum, corn starch, water, and glycerol. The viscosities of samples are measured against a range of shear rates, from 0.1 s-1 to 1000 s-1 using a rheometer. Generally, shear thinning viscosity was observed and the viscosity data was fitted to power law viscosity model. The viscosity decreased as the mixing temperature increased. Power law fluid consistency index, K and non-Newtonian fluid behaviour index, n showed deviation of more than 8% from the actual blood.
