Default 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.

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.
