Abstract From a brief historical survey we extract the basic requirements considered essential for any satisfactory capillary flow model. Within this framework we construct a model incorporating a revised version of the lubricated-cell model matched with improved bolus flow calculations. Pressure-flow relations are discussed for uniform trains of cells and plasma in very narrow capillaries (diameter less than 7.5 μm). Resistances obtained compare favourably with recently published experimental results.
