Unsteady axisymmetric flow in a constricted tube is studied. A shear-thinning model for viscosity of the blood is proposed. The motion equation is written in vorticity-streamfunction formulation and is integrated numerically by a finite difference scheme. The dependence of the flow on the dimensionless parameters has been investigated and differences with the newtonian case are discussed.
