Researchers have discovered a novel, non-invasive way to measure blood flow to the brains of newborn children at the bedside – a method that has the potential to enhance diagnosis and treatment across medicine, a Michigan Medicine study suggests.
A new review suggests that blood vessel damage and impaired oxygen delivery related to COVID-19 play a role in mood changes and cognitive difficulties that people with the disease face during illness and recovery. The review is published in Physiological Reports.

Frequent exercise breaks during prolonged sitting may be better for blood vessel health in people with type 2 diabetes than less-frequent activity interruptions. The first-of-its-kind study is published ahead of print in the American Journal of Physiology-Heart and Circulatory Physiology.
In a discovery with far-reaching implications for intubation ventilators, lab-on-a-chip micromixers, and micro air vehicles, Technion researchers were able to visualize the stationary tornadoes caused by the Coandă effect.
Regular consumption of sugary soda sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) reduces kidney blood flow, which could be linked to a greater risk of developing chronic kidney disease (CKD), according to a recently published paper in the American Journal of Physiology-Renal Physiology.
Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers have created a computer program for scientists at no charge that lets users readily quantify the structural and functional changes in the blood flow networks feeding tumors.
The complex interplay among the arteriovenous grafts, the vessels they connect, and the blood they transport has been difficult to simulate with computers, but one new method provides a way. Researchers report in Physics of Fluids on a series of simulations that reconstructed the fluid dynamics affected by the insertion of an AVG.
Zebrafish and mammals share key cellular features; researchers have identified how the former repair their damaged hearts and now wonder if humans might someday be able to do so, too Research into the hearts of zebrafish, a pet shop staple…
