In this article, heat and mass transfer analysis on MHD blood flow of Casson fluid model due to peristaltic wave has been investigated. The governing equations of blood flow for Casson fluid model, temperature, and energy equation have been solved by taking the assumption of long wavelength and neglecting the inertial forces. The resulting coupled differential equations have been solved analytically and the exact solutions are presented. The impact of various pertinent parameters is plotted and discussed. It is found that the influence of magnetic field and fluid parameter shows similar behavior on velocity profile while its behavior is opposite for pressure rise and pressure gradient profile. Trapping phenomena have also taken into account by sketching the streamlines. The expression for pressure rise and friction forces are evaluated numerically.
