The present paper investigates the role of heat transfer on peristaltic transport of Jeffery liquid in a porous tube. The effect of variable viscosity and slip impacts are taken into account. The closed-form solutions are obtained with the help of long wavelength and small Reynolds number. The results of physiological parameters on velocity, pressure rise, frictional force, trapped bolus, and temperature are plotted graphically. It is seen that the pressure rise and the frictional forces decline with an expansion in the viscosity parameter. The study further demonstrates that an increase in the value of the slip parameter significantly alters the pressure rise, frictional force, and temperature. Moreover, the volume of trapped bolus increases with an increase in the value of the velocity slip parameter.
