Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure performed on patients during cardiac and respiratory arrest. This procedure externally activates the cardiac and respiratory systems via the delivery of chest compression and artificial ventilation. As the main purpose of CPR is to recirculate the blood flow, prediction of the myocardium behavior has great importance. This prediction allows us to have a better understanding of the needed force to recirculate blood without hurting the…

An innovative design for cardiopulmonary resuscitation manikins based on a human-like thorax and embedded flow sensors

Scientific designed and anatomically high-fidelity designs of cardiopulmonary resuscitation manikins that embed flow sensors can improve physiological fidelity and provide useful feedback data.

Simulation of Myocardium Motion and Blood Flow in the Heart with Fluid-Structure Interaction

In this work, a numerical model of the canine left ventricle (LV) is presented, which serves to address the limitations of previous studies and demonstrates the superiority of the present approach over a specification of an arbitrary stress distribution to an end-diastolic geometry.

A low-order model for left ventricle dynamics throughout the cardiac cycle.

The model is used to examine the effects of changes in underlying properties of the heart, including myocardial contractility, fibre orientation, passive stiffness, atrial pressure and peripheral resistance, on observable parameters such as stroke work, ejection fraction and end-systolic pressure-volume relationship.

Simulation of Left Ventricular Dynamics Using a Low-Order Mathematical Model

A low-order theoretical model is presented, in which LV shape is represented using a small number of parameters, allowing rapid computational simulations of LV dynamics that run faster than real time, and could be used to determine patient-specific parameters of LV performance on-line from clinically available measurements.

A two-phase finite element model of the diastolic left ventricle.
