Peripheral vascular resistance, stroke volume, cardiac output and maximum acceleration were computed in ‘real-time’ using aortic pressure and flow signals processed by simple analogue circuits incorporated into a multichannel recording system. The use of the system was exemplified by records of the haemodynamic effects of methoxamine and adrenaline in… (More)
