According to the new model of Electrical Velocimetry, the characteristic changes in thoracic conductivity are caused by the alignment of the red blood cells (erythrocytes) in the aorta. Prior to aortic valve opening (diastole), the red blood cells are random orientation (see figure). Shortly after the opening of aortic valve (systole), the red blood cells align with their disk-shaped body in parallel to the blood flow. Because of this alignment the applied current faces a significant increase in thoracic conductivity.
