he·mo·rhe·ol·o·gy

(hē'mō-rē-ol'ŏ-jē), Although the diagraph rh occurring at the beginning of a syllable in a word of Greek origin is ordinarily changed to rrh when a prefix or other lexical element is placed before it, the r is not doubled in this word.
The science of the flow of blood in relation to the pressures, flow, volumes, and resistances in blood vessels, especially in terms of blood viscosity and red blood cell deformation in the microcirculation.
