Paper Abstract

The increase in inception rate connected with the cerebrospinal fluid have been observed recently. In the cerebrospinal fluid there are various types of suspension. There are cells and proteins which form different dispersion systems of given the sizes and concentrations among them. Finding out the physical processes occurring in the human cerebrospinal fluid is a problem of high importance. Coagulation, coalescence, aggregation and other physical processes in the cerebrospinal fluid depend on the state of health of the person who the sample was taken from. Thus it influences the concentration of suspension, its type and the sizes of suspended particles as well. In the paper the authors present the results of examinations of suspension in non-coloured human cerebrospinal fluid and the preliminary analysis of concentration of suspension and the sizes of suspended particles. The results were obtained by microscoping.
