Abstract

One-dimensional (1D) modeling is a powerful tool for studying haemodynamics; however, a comprehensive 1D model representing the entire cardiovascular system is lacking. We present a model that accounts for wave propagation in anatomically realistic systemic (including coronary and cerebral) arterial/venous networks, pulmonary arterial/venous networks and portal veins. A lumped parameter (0D) heart model represents cardiac function via a time-varying elastance and source resistance, and accounts for mechanical interactions between heart chambers mediated via pericardial constraint, the atrioventricular septum and atrioventricular plane motion. A non-linear windkessel-like 0D model represents ..
