Explanation:
Vollblut=med. plethora
Vollbluetig=med. plethoric (Muret-Sanders)
In Taber's:plethora=1. Overfullness of
blood vessels or of the total quantity
of any fluid in the body. SEE: sanguine
sanguine=pert. to consistency of blood,
marked by abundant and active blood
circulation . . .
sanguineous=syn. for pethoric=having
an abundance of blood

Thus, the sanguineous (pethoric) and
plasmatic viscosity
