The results of the history of studying the phenomenon of reversible red blood cells aggregation and current methods of measurement have been provided. The work considers the conditions of aggregates formation in vessels with a low shear stress. An assumption was made of inappropriateness of uncontrolled reduction in aggregation capacity of red blood cells for correction of blood flow behavior in case of pathology.
