viscosity of blood
 
I am interested to know if there are resources out there that can tell me what the viscosity of blood is, more specifically:

1. An equation of the viscosity of blood versus hematocrit level.

2. Viscosity equation for blood using an Non-Newtonian model, i.e. Power Law equation or some other equation.

(1). Check the website: http://www.vilastic.com/tech10.html plasma viscosity and blood viscoelasticity , + references

Another source is to check out papers by K. Perktold (A mathematician from Australia did a lot of work of CFD blood flow). He has several CFD studies based on the non-newtonian properties of blood.
