Blood flows could be more turbulent than expected

Blood flow in the human body is assumed to be mostly smooth and non-turbulent. On the other hand, unstable and unsteady flow is linked to a variety of cardiovascular diseases including arteriosclerosis — one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Now, Professor Björn Hof from the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria), together with a team of international researchers, has shown that our bloodstream is more turbulent than what has been previously thought.
